Just traded my friend guns today on may 12, I have another Echo 1 and there really great guns I love them but i had one problem well its not really a problem its more of stupidity, but anyways my problem was I hate the gray body I wish they could spend a little more time to paint it black. So I decided im guna paint it black and im not a bad painter im acually realy good if my brain works properly IoI, well anyways I allways read magazines and I read that a great way to take off oil residue is to use brake cleaner so i got some and started spraying my body, and noticed that the paint comes off and there the paint under it is black so I thought cool then it started drying then I noticed that the brake cleaner was eating away the plastic, so basicly I wish somewhere on the box or desciption it says "DO NOT USE BRAKE CLEANER AS A CLEANER" for retards like myself.

this body is actually great. the previous reviewer seems to think that it is supposed to be built like a friggin tank. not true. this is meant as a cheap replacement for a stock body, not as an upgrade. also the fact that this isnt as tough as a metal body is a no-shit issue. if it was supposed to be it would be made out of metal. so overall it is a good buy for a busted gun.

Well, first off, this is not the best body available on the market. Metal bodies are made by over half a dozen companies that have more features, more durability, and better characteristics overall. But those cost four to six times as much.

The charging handle is set up upon shipment; it retracts the plate for hop up adjustment. This plate is of ridiculously low quality (you could bend it with your fingers), but fortunately no stress is placed on this item, so it works.

The rail on top is made of metal, as is the safety switch, and the bolt catch. The rest is plastic.
It comes as pictured except for the presence of the charging handle, front pin, safety switch, trigger guard, and bolt catch. You will still need to buy the rear body pin and magazine catch, or scavenge them from another item.

What is rather worrisome is the build quality of the tabs. Towards the rear of the upper assembly are two semicircular projections through which a screw runs to hold the body and gearbox together. The tabs are made of plastic, and look and feel weak. I treated them gingerly and they held up.

You get what you pay for. This item doesn't hold a candle to the metal assemblies available, but at 30 dollars, you can't really complain or expect much. 2 stars for quality, but it gets the 3rd star for the price.
