New to airsoft? Here are some safety tips for airsoft guns that we recommend following.

Since the inception of Echo1USA, the brand has strived to provide clients with uncompromising quality with top-notch customer service. As avid players themselves, the founders and employees of this company are able to understand the needs of the sport and the frustration players have with inferior products in a way many manufacturers cannot. Echo 1's commitment to crafting the most affordable top-line airsoft guns and accessories on the market today is steadfast. That philosophy remains the foundation of this brand's continued success.

The Echo 1 GAT or General Assault Tool from Airsoft GI is one of the latest SMG from Echo 1. The GAT has been talked about for years while in the making, and now that it is here, airsoft players all agree it was well worth the wait. Unlike other AEPs, the GAT uses a full-size gearbox, which puts it and its owners at a huge advantage in terms of upgradability. This is a gun that will grow with your skills and evolve with the games you like to play and the tactics and strategies you devise.

Besides its imposing looks, this gun boasts a blazing-fast rate of fire. Coming standard with 8mm steel bearings, a steel gear set, a ported piston head and a metal base spring guide, the GAT is ready to handle high-speed builds, or even higher FPS build, thanks to its standard-sized gearbox.

The construction of the GAT is a steel upper receiver and a polymer lower, like the real firearm, so you have the added realism and rigidity without adding a ton of unnecessary weight. It's light enough to carry comfortably but heavy enough to feel authentic.

The included, removable front foregrip also doubles as the battery compartment for the GAT. The 8.4V mini battery included with this gun fits nicely, but you should be able to fit buffer tube style LiPo batteries without much sweat, giving you extra trigger response and rate of fire without touching the internals.

Product Information:
I got my GAT, and had some problems, had to send it back for repair. It was 100 fps lower than stated and was double feeding every few shots. They repaired my gun and said it was only the bucking being dirty (on a new gun?) I think there was a small tear which caused loss of fps.

The hop up is just okay on this, even with it off all the way, the gun still curves high after 75-85 feet. I might need to put a new bucking and nub inside. I can't tell how far it shoots because the bb's curve so much they vanish in the air.

Pros:
ROF is insane, this gun is the fastest stock gun I own that shoots this fast.

Cons:
Hop up sucks, even with the unit off the gun still curves which requires you to aim down to hit targets past 75 feet.
