This gun belongs to a friend of mine, but i used it in a 7 hour game, so here is my take of this gun:

It feels beautiful. The OD stock has a rubbery coating to it, so your hand feels comfortable, and the gun does not shine. The magazine and release are all metal and work fine. The bolt has an ok sound when you rack the bolt, but dosent sound like the real thing. (not as good as my AK or M4) but still works (its cosmetic, who cares?)


The heat shield above the barrel.is plastic it is a very weak, very shiny plastic. take it off, coat the inside with a layer of duct tape (1. to make it heavier, 2. if it cracks or something, you dont lose the pieces) then spray it with some flat black model paint or ULTRA FLAT Krylon paint to make it look like metal. OR just replace it with the metal part.

the gun is held together with a large amount of grub screws (or set screws, whatever you prefer to call them) since they dont lock into a hole, and merely put pressure on everything, you need to keep tightening them after every game to keep your gun from rattling, or your entire front sight from just falling off the gun.

get rid of the Hicaps. They suck. Its an M-14. the RS counterpart only has 20 rounds. You want to use an M14. buy 100rd magazines and load 24 rounds, so you get the 20rds without having to flip your gun upside down to get all of them out. If you want 350 rounds, buy a SAW. this is an infantry rifle, not a machine gun.

overall its ok. seeing as i was facing a SAW, TM Type89, Tanaka K98G, L96A1 and a fully upgraded CA G3A3, and GP-30, this gun felt like crap compared to my trusty VFC AKS-74. It isnt overly accurate. I was using AIrsoft Elite .2g ammo with it, and it was still misfiring a bit and having issues. I watched the bbs float through the woods and stop at the first leaf they hit. My friend's CA G36, i just watched it rip through all the leaves.

you want a good gun, go with the Echo1 Vector Arms line. This is still a normal ECHO1, and it shows.

too much plastic. Too many issues.

get the E1 Vector Arms M-14EBR. WAY better than this, only about $100 more, but you get what you pay for. this will leave you disssapointed.

I got this gun from somewhere else, but nonetheless the gun just stopped working after two months.The scope mount is also pointing at a downward angle.

Well this is my first AEG not to say that I haven't played with any before I've just been to cheap to buy one. Anyways I like the m-14 along with the short barrel for cqb, so this seemed like a good choice. Echo could have done without the cheap sling that they sent with the gun, but the scope mount is pretty decent. This gun is fairly accurate and a good value for the price. I put a cheap wally world scope on it and while not a tack driver this thing can really reach out and tag people for a stock aeg. I only have two complaints with this gun one the cheap clip needs to be nearly full to feed into the gun and after some wear it really wiggles around in the mag well. Second when I depress the trigger all the way on semi auto the gun shoots a two or three round burst, then when I put the gun on full auto and pull the trigger it shoots a ten round burst no matter if I let off the trigger or not. I have just started leaving it in semi and shooting it like a styer aug I depress the trigger part of the way for semi and all the way for the burst. Overall a good value for 155.00 you can't ask for much more. But if you really want top performance then you'll need to spend a bit more.
