The Echo1 SOG-68 is a Vietnam based carbine to bring a new take on the everyday M4 and M16 that you see on the field. The SOG-68 uses a brand new body and furniture to make a new airsoft gun for the market that will be loved by the re enactors and collectors. The gun has a solid fps of 380 out of the box and is using our tried and true Stag Arms and Troy version 2 gearbox that is 8mm steel bearing and steel gears. The SOG-68 comes with a battery and charger to get you started and two high capacity mags. The 8.4v stock battery is great to get you started but if you want to use a lipo battery you can and bump the rate of fire up to 18 bbs per second. The stock polycarb can take the lipo since the second tooth is removed and the pickup tooth is re inforced to prevent any damage. Overall the SOG-68 is a compact gun that is built up and ready for any game you go and will get you through the fight.

Out of the box, the SOG-68 felt like a truly solid rifle. I own a couple rifles with metal bodies (one of which is a TM M4) so I wondered how this would compare. It is a sturdy rifle and I didn't notice any flexing or creaking of the rifle. Even with the stock extended there is no wobble that I noticed. The handguards are a snug fit and don't rotate while holding it. I encountered some minor issues but nothing that detracts from a stock rifle. First was the seeming inability to rear wire the rifle for a buttstock battery pouch due to the design of the telescoping A1/A2 stock. Second was the flashhider. I scraped the glue off of the grub screw and didn't realize until after I turned the flashhider a couple of turns that there was a second grub screw (also covered in glue). Fortunately it didn't ruin the threads on the outer barrel. Third, and lastly, I found the screw holes on the sides of the supplied high caps mildly detracting (pure cosmetic and obviously I can get different mags). Kudos to AGI for solid packaging and the quality control slip showing test fire and chrono reading. I even got four bb's that were left in a mag as a souvenir.
Solid/Sturdy rifle, no flex
Comes with everything shy of bb's to get going.
Two high cap magazines.
NiMH battery included
Great CQB rifle
Flashhider screws (2 of them) heavily glued in place
Design of rear stock requires more imagination to allow rear wiring.
