For: Echo 1 Full Metal Entreprise Arms SOF 2 Airsoft GunProduct Information:
So I picked this one up as I was tired of everyone on the field outranging me with basically everything and most the fields around here don't have enough cover. It's awesome, good weight, good range, good accuracy, good fire rate, and all out of the box without mods.
Haven't game tested it yet but it has easily doubled the range of all my other guns, as well as all the guns my group loans out to people wanting to get into airsoft.
No need for mods to get an amazing gun
Range is easily accurate out to 120 feet before you need to lob shots.
Fire rate is impressive with the 8.4 battery it comes with, and crazy with a 9.6 added later. Haven't tried a 10.8 and with how fast it output on a 9.6 I won't.
Good weight, doesn't feel like a kids toy when you're holding it, though may be to heavy for some
Full stock allows almost every battery.
The barrel shroud makes it look very original on the battlefield.
Price is very worth it, especially if you get it with one of Airsoft GIs many coupons like I did.
The battery it comes with out of box can easily last 3 full high cap magazines (the ones it comes with)
Sling mount on the stock could be in a better position
Limited rail setup pretty much only for optics, seems to need a new barrel shroud if you want grenade launchers, flash lights, or forward grips, though I haven't tried to fit any.
FPS may be to high for some fields but can be compensated for with heavier BBs
SOF 3 has higher FPS and is the same price.
Not a con to me but the stock is solid, it doesn't have any special features like cheek rests, adjust-ability, or collapse-ability, may be awkward to smaller people.
Haven't seen other magazines like the ones it comes with so it may be an uncommon style that may require sticking with ECHO-1 mags as replacements.
