This is the official review of the Echo1 M28 airsoft sniper rifle by Project echelon airsoft...Airsoft in Tooele County,Utah USA
Recently I purchased the echo1 M28 sniper rifle from airsoftgi. The echo 1 airsoft rifle is a copy of the classic army M24, although with a few major improvements.
First off, the rifle chronos around 520FPs which right around where Echo1 said it would. The rifle comes in a flat black finish with a fluted barrel. The rifle comes packaged with a bipod, 2 spare magazines, and a cleaning rod. The finish on the rifle is not too bad. It has a nice flat black finish, with the stock having a kind of smooth/rough texture. The stock is extend-able for length of pull, which is a plus as it aids in user comfort. How ever, the pull on the bolt to chamber the BB is not for the faint of heart...it is a very hard pull, how ever this is because of the high power spring inside of the rifle. Internal wise, the inner barrel is evenly spaced, and fits nice and aligned . The only thing that I did not like in the rifle over all, is the plastic piston and spring guide. In the future, I hope echo1 releases a piston upgrade kit for the rifle.
Realistic feel, and length
Finish is good
adjustable length of pull
Comes with a bipod
Good to go out of box
The piston and spring guide is a small thing that can be upgraded later, and overall doesnot effect the quality or skirmish ability of the rifle.
Plastic spring guide
