Product Information:
The Echo 1 M28 sniper rifle is the best under $200 bolt action sniper rifle I've seen. It far outcompetes every sniper rifle I've seen on the field as far as range and accuracy. Polymer body is comfortable and the whole gun feels very rugged and solidly built. Plus, it's as quiet as death when it shoots.

-Full Metal
-Polymer body
-Out of the box perfection, no upgrades needed
-One of the quietest rifles
-Hits hard

-Bipod is slightly less then perfect, but is more of an added bonus on the gun. The gun itself justifies the price.

Be prepared for the best under $200 off the assembly line sniper rifle on the market. This was my first "real" airsoft gun I purchased. By that I mean a gun capable of shooting over 50 feet and isn't clear plastic. When you receive it in the package, it will be in multiple parts (the barrel, the stock, 2 magazines, a bipod, and all the screws necessary to piece it together.) It takes about 5 minutes most to put it all together and is quite the beast. If you hate carrying a moderately heavy weapon, you will not enjoy this rifle unless you plan to sit still the whole game. it weighs a hefty 8-9 lbs without the bipod last I checked. The bipod adds an additional 2 lbs to make it a total of 10 lbs. That may not sound like a lot, but after playing 4 straight hours with it, you will not want to move. It has an adjustable butt stock, and two sling mounts. The rail is perfect for any optics you may want. It has a simple hop up adjustor and safety switch. Every part of this rifle is durable and capable of taking punishment. The only issue I have had with it is its stock sear set. It seemed like one of the only parts in the entire trigger box that was made of pot metal. The sear itself had ground away over the course of only 4 months of use, and then proceeded to cause the rifle to slam fire itself as well as not be able to be cocked properly. The fix is an expensive $35 for such a small piece, but if you replace it with a steel piece there should be no more problems.

-Super accurate with anything above a .2
-Comes with a high quality bipod
-Threaded inner barrel and adapter
-Extremely durable
-Easy to disassemble and put away
-Good hop up unit
-Adjustable butt stock
-High power
-Comfortable in your hands

-Crappy stock sear set
-A slight pain to remove the orange tip to get to the threaded barrel
-Requires constant cleaning
-Did I mention heavy?
-Shatters any .12 BB's and .2 BB's within a shorter distance than 75 ft.

I have had this rifle for roughly two weeks now and it is just wow. I am just completely excited for what Echo 1 has produced. It is so close to the M24 its crazy. Ive never personally had a slam fire issue with this rifle. It has a a great fps and range. Mine came with two metal mags and not plastic so what a bonus. It can be heavy for some. Instead of doing a traditional bolt pull i put my right as a fist on top instead of under making it way easier to pull and i personally find it to more comfortable

Cheap for such great quality
Comes with an excellent bipod
Two mags
Adjustable Stock
Saftey works great
Beautiful feel
Easy Hop Up location
Good FPS

Can be a bit heavy for some (I am 5'7", 120 lbs) I dont have a problem with it
Stiff Spring (+ or -)
I personally do not like how much you have to pull the trigger i think it is too short
no longer comes with threaded adapter not a big deal

Product Information:
This is my current primary rifle for airsofting, and it has been for the last 4 years. I have fired over 1000 rounds through it, and have become very accustomed to its quirks and abilities. The gun out of the box fires a beautiful 500+ FPS, is pre-installed with barrel spacers to increase accuracy and comes with a bipod and adjustable rear stock, putting it ahead of VSR-10s by a long shot. Some argue this eliminates the ability to customize the weapon, because the Echo 1 M28 doesn't come with very many options for modification. I disagree. I have installed a precision barrel, steel sear set, reinforced piston and guide and a SP190 spring. Many of these products, the piston, spring guide and spring, are not intended for the M28 but for the VSR-10, because this gun is compatible with many VSR-10 parts. Another aspect I love about the M28 is its absolute endurance, this gun has been through everything, water, mud, drops from 3 story buildings, and it has survived like a pro. For a new airsofter joining the community or for a veteran of the game, this gun offers options for you.

- Out-of-the-box perfection, with 500+ FPS, a fluted and spaced barrel, durable polymer stock, with bi-pod and stock adjustments.
- customizable with a wide range of parts, whether they are specified for the gun itself or are functional with other, similar models
- outrageous durability, has survived every test I've put it to yet
- easy to take apart

- Internal parts like the plastic piston have to eventually be replaced, the piston and sear set will wear away with time and can cause slam firing.
- Not the lightest gun in the world
- the bi pod which comes with the gun is subject to its own problems, and is not 100% reliable.
- lacks specific modification parts, like pistons, which must then be bought for a different model and then occasionally jury-rigged to function inside of the M28.

Product Information:
I have had this gun for two years, at first it performed averagely, only accepting bbs into the chamber when I pushed the magazine up while pulling the bolt back, but it worked well otherwise and was quite easy to dial the scope in ( I use and NC Star 3-9x40). As soon as It hit 2 months old it worked perfectly, for 8 months of light use, then it began slam firing. at first it was only once or twice a week then it started happening every time i used it and now I only get one good shot for every 10 times I tried to fire it. It would not be such a problem if it didn't only accept 45 degree sears, kind of hard to find.

Great, reliable accuracy
Easy to sight in
Great FPS

Hard bolt pull
Takes a while to break in
SLAM FIRES!!!!!!!!!!(too powerful spring for stock internals)

Product Information:
I bought this gun a year ago, and i have to say i've been extremely disappointed with it. In my experience it is wildly inaccurate and the hop-up is utterly nonfunctional with fps well below 350. That being said I expect that this is a defect with the gun i received, however it has been seen by two different air-soft stores on multiple occasions and hasn't been fixed to date.

Good Solid Body
Solid Scope Mount
Nice Adjustable Butt Stock
I like the Dimpled Body Texture

Low Accuracy
BB's drop from barrel if pointing below horizontal
pointless receiver on the underside that tends to pop open (I taped it down)
Horrible Magazines that come with the gun. However I believe echo 1 is now producing metal versions that I believe would be better.
Orange tip came disconnected from the gun

I got this gun and let me say i was super shocked when i got it. it was super cool. the barrel was amazing and the stock was awesome feeling. it wasn't packaged that well. when i got it all the parts were all over the original box. no lie i shot it 3 times and it already slammed fired. so i went on you tube and echo 1 tech support made a video and they said alot of time slam firing could be from lose parts in the trigger box area. so right under the trigger that opening where the trigger guard goes down there was a screw and itt was super lose. i have no idea why but it was. so i tightened it and it worked. i used it all day at the airsoft war. i was shooting 475 with .28 bbs. this gun is awesome. since it dosent come with a scope, i bought the Airsoft gi 3-9x40 scope. i HIGHLY recconmend this scope. it zooms it and its super clear. the lens are a little small and i think that's my only complaint but its $27 you cant go wrong.
i would recconmend this to anyone whos getting into sniping you wont be sorry or dissapointed, but it may slam fire but all bolt action snipers can slam fire.

Shoots hard 485 fps with .28 bbs
heavy(could also be a pro)
hop up is easy to adjust
included bi-pod is pretty good
the bolt is hard to pull back but you know how good the spring is
inculded rail
its mostly metal

heavy(also be a pro)
pretty sure the barrel adapter is glued on mine cant get off the orange tip :(
slammed fired like the 3rd time i shot it. just look for loose screws and allen screws it might work
plastic piston

This is a great sniper rifle for beginners, its full metal, but it still only ways about eight pounds. The gun is really accurate once you get a scope put on an tuned up. And it is accurate at really long ranges. Also The Harris style bipod it comes with is great quality.

I had some trouble when I first got the gun though. It doesn't come fully assembled, so you have to put it together yourself, the screw didn't fit because of the paint and scraps on them, so I had to wipe it down and work it in with some WD40. Also to make it worse It didn't come with instructions of any kind, but i found everything I needed on Echo-1's website.

It had problems with BB's rolling out of the barrel after pulling back the bolt, but after looking on Echo-1's website it said that this will happen if the hop up is off, so you have to turn it on just a little. I followed the directions and now everything is great.

*Also for people that say the bolt is stiff, thats cause the spring is stiff, and thats were the high FPS comes from so that's a good thing. Anyways it loosens up after a while

Looks cool.
Great accuracy and consistency. BB's hit within six inches on a target from about 75 feet.
Accurate at long range.
Amazing fps for the price. around 520 fps
Good bipod.
Comes with two mags.
Gun is upgradable, which isn't necessary though cause its great.

Doesn't come with instructions. (Found some for this gun on Echo 1 website)
BB's roll out of the barrel when hop up is off, but its fine once you turn it on.
Screws did not fit, had to put grease and strip the paint before the got in.
Mags are cheap plastic. But they sell metal ones.
These aren't really things that make the gun bad, so it gets five stars.

Product Information:
In general, a great gun while you have it with a stress on "while". Right out of the box the gun shoots hard and is very accurate thanks to the upgraded spring echo 1 throws in there for you. The downside is that all the other parts in the bolt are plastic(spring guide, piston) and the trigger assembly(made of aluminum) is weak and cannot keep up with the stress of the spring for very long. The few times you play with this it'll work out fantastically, but i suggest if you would like to continue playing with it, upgrade the spring guide, piston, and trigger assembly. This has the potential to be a great gun with some upgrades.

-solid body
-powerful right out of the box
- very accurate

-cheap internals(parts won't last)
-trigger assembly
