I got this because I was looking for a good that had field range and could still be used in CQB. Got it about 2 years ago and I am just now starting to have very minor problems. This gun has worked great and has been used heavily. The gun is not to be looked down upon just because it is Echo 1. People say they are not good, but so far mine has proven that wrong time and time again. The wood on the gun looks good, adds a nice touch to it. The gun does not come with a scope mount sadly. The gun is just now giving me problems with the sights being broken and the fire selector is loose. It will go from semi to full auto by mistake. Metal is solid, as well as the wood. To access the battery compartment, you will need a screw driver and remove the back metal piece.
Great field gun while being able to go CQB.
Pretty lightweight for a full metal/wood AKM.
No scope mount included.
Front sight is plastic.
