Product Information:
First off this gun is beast. The fps is insane shooting 430 right out of the box. And the range is amazing. I used it in a war and took outr all four of my oppenents in 5 min. One of which from 100 yards, your not usaully gonna get that shot but the fps and rate of fire and this thing made it possible. Your not going to find a gun that preforms like this gun unless your willing to spend a heck of a lot of money. Another thing is that the accuracy on this thing is amazing. I lined up about 5 cans about 120 ft away and was consitantly hitting each can. Plus the mag holds about 600 rounds even though youll never need that many with this gun. So I suggest you get this gun.

430 fps with 0.2s
Range 120 ft or more
Mag holds 600 rounds
Real wood
Full metal
Nice realistic weight
Good CQB gun if you want to put holes in your friends.

It hurts if you get hit by it but dont be a pussy.

Product Information:
Fan of Ak's? Are you a fan of high FPS? Are you an Airsofter looking for a durable Mil/Sim weapon without paying exorbitantly high prices? Without sounding like a bad car salesperson, I want to say that, now, after I have purchased, and skirmished, with this gun, I have not been left with the foul aftertaste of "Buyer's Remorse" in the Red Star AK.

As a bread winning husband, with 2 kids, and a wife; the last thing I needed to do was toss away money on a "toy" that would break soon after arriving. Seems like the last two times I bought an Airsoft gun I find myself going through this guilt trip of thinking, "I should have bought diapers instead of the gun".

At $300 (after my two little mods) this gun will set you back to be sure. Considering the higher end guns, and their costs, this is a steal in the world of Airsoft Weaponry. I wouldn't put your family in financial jeopardy over this gun, but for those of you that saved up, it is one Airsoft gun you won't regret buying (lemon's excluded).

The Echo Redstar is a CYMA 048, rebranded by JG and ECHO. I studied reviews on You Tube, and looked through the usual sources: Airsoft Retreat, Arnie's, and any CYMA 048 review I could get my eyes on. The gun has a great rep thus far. The gun has proven to exceed expectations.

I previously owned a JG 614. Awesome gun! The reason I bought this Echo AK was that my JG 614 plastic spring guide shattered. To repair it was a big chunk of money I decided to just invest in a new gun.

This internals of this AK are superior to my JG 614 (metal spring guide and hop-up for instance). I will repair my JG, but this AK is a long range bomber with even higher FPS. On the range, the only excuse for me losing a battle is my own human error.

I asked Airsoft GI to install a Prometheus tightbore and Prometheus Bucking before it arrived at my door. That was a good move. The gun is accurate to within 3 inches at 130 feet, with .25s. The Red Star is able to penetrate a pop can at 140 feet. At 200 feet, I can still hit the second, and inside ring, of a silhouette consistently. It has more distance than that if you "hop-it-up". But really, I don't like to shoot with the BB's in an upward arc. I like straight on frozen rope shooting.

One other thing. I know FPS is something that is debatable in the Airsoft forums. Some guys hate the macho style, high FPS trash talkers, and say, "FPS is no substitute for tactical knowledge and strategy". I agree with that group actually, but I must say, I am a closet FPS junkie. This gun is my "fix" for ridiculous bb speed.

I think it is worth buying this gun and downgrading the speed of the spring, but I won't be doing that anytime soon. For woodland, farmyard, and old building skirmishes here in our location, this is an incredible fun and fast weapon to play with. But the externals are reason enough to think hard about this gun. The metal is durable and the wood is solid. This external should be in your collection indefinitely.

I do miss the maneuverability of my JG 614. The 614 has a high rate of fire, and was much easier to engage combatants around corners and in tight places. But, the more I get used to this gun, the more I like it. After 3 weeks, and 5 skirmishes, I can tell you that is has not missed a beat. It just keeps getting better as I grow into it. It is devastating, particularly, at longer distances. I can reach the opponent, they cannot reach me.

My advice: Get .25 gram bb's and shoot them exclusively. Buy an intellect 9.6 mini asap. Install the tightbore and bucking.

Know that, in my humble opinion, this Echo Red Star was worth its weight in "diapers"- at least in my opinion.


Airsofter for 4 years

1. 30 day warranty
2. Steel Upper Receiver
3. Exceptional FPS with .25 gram bb's (420)
4. 7mm bushings
5. Steel spring guide with bearing
6. Metal hop up unit
7. Excellent detail in markings on gun.

1. Why the small 9.6 mini battery? Really now. Shouldn't a big shooter like this have a battery to match?

2. Pot metal is included in some of the external parts of the gun

3. Why not make the removable barrel cleaner a real un-jamming rod? It is useful to have a rod on the field, it would not have been hard to make this fit of plastic un-jamming rods.

4. Rate-of-fire is average (10-14 bb's per second)

5. Boy's she'll make your opponents bleed at less than 40 feet!. Exposed flesh that is hit by this baby will cause more than a welt. I don't mind, but some players aren't to happy about the whole bleeding thing!

6. Lastly, Echo/JG/CYMA why did you make this battery compartment so small? You put a 9.6 MINI in this thing? What were you thinking!!!!!
-p.s. The factory battery is absolutely worthless. Buy an aftermarket battery. You really need one. The factory won't hardly hold a charge. It is truly a throw away in my experience.

Product Information:
It broke after ONE skirmish. I had fired about 100 rounds and out of no where "click click click". A wiring fault I imagine. The fuse is fine but the gun will not shoot and I tried several fully charged batteries.

Looks like nobody else had the same problem, maybe I'm unlucky? Wouldn't expect a gun to fail after 100 rounds after both Echo1 and Airsoft GI's inspection.

Solid construction.
Pretty externals.
Shoots 400fps with .25's

Internals broke on the first day!
Wood doesn't feel as good as it looks (if you've held a real AK)
Does not fit a large battery out of the box

If you want a sexy ak that is also good for games, look no further. I just got this gun. First things firs, it does not come with a black flash hider so buy a black one. Also the included battery is not good. If you buy this gun, make sure to buy a new 8.4 or 9.6 mini. I would recommend the 9.6 because it really isn't all that hard to fit into the battery compartment. The Hi Cap included is pretty good. Overall the gun is nice and sturdy, although the pistol grip on mine wobbles a little. If you want a good video review check out youtube. Some of those are not true though. The wood is very sturdy and does not flex or bend.

430 fps with .2's
Full metal and wood
good hi cap included
sturdy construction
Not very expensive for a good AKM
Can use either a 9.6 mini or an 8.4 mini
With a black flash hider, this gun is very realistic and intimidating
plastic on pistol grip is good

Battery included is no good
My pistol grip wobbles but that may be just a 1 in 10 fluke
May be heavy for some players, but most people should be fine
Echo 1 trademarks are a little cheesy
Does not include a black flash hider
The spring for the "bolt" is really stiff on mine but I'm just being picky now because I can't think of anything else that is wrong with this gun.

Yes, this gun is full steel and wood except for the handle, so thats a nice thing about it. Gun was over all pretty amazing, I took a 300 ft tape measure to my field and was able to get 200 foot body shots without lobbing and 250 with a little lobbing. The bb's start to curve off around 190-200 ft though so it gets a little tricky. From 50 ft I was able to use the iron sights (although on mine the middle line or whatever its called is a little to low and I havnt got to adjust it, when using iron sights if i line it up as if the middle line when to the top of the half circle i get acurracte shots) I could hit a pop can no problem. Thing was chrono'd at 450 fps, and I'm sure that after use it will go down, but alot of events in my area are 400-450 fps=semi only 450 + fps = disabled full auto. And I'm not taking my gun apart to disable full auto. Although I noticed when I got the gun that paint was already chipping in one tiny spot by a screw and the wood has like little lines in it where its like a crack. Its not a crack just little line indentations or whatever. I will probably be making a video review on this gun so you can always check youtube- Ibanez1618

200ft+ accuracy
450 fps
full metal
real wood
metal clip
high ROF
supports stick battery as well as large (block?) batterys

battery location is a bit annoying
the battery I recieved had a larger connecter than the battery I had (from crossman pulse r72) nothing against gun just that sucked, i assumed all airsoft batteries were universal.
location for stick battery is annoying to get on and off.

I bought this gun and finally received it just in time for a game. The weapon shoots at aprox. 430 fps out of the box with .20's and is accurate to about 120-140 feet. The weapon shoots GREAT, is relatively accurate but the mag well is terrible. If in the heat of battle you put the mage it at the wrong angle it will lock into the mag well bill will not feed or release. I was forced to sit there and disassemble the magazine release to get the magazine out. The magazine it comes with worked fine until it stopped feeding after 5-6 hours of play. All in all decent gun, with great internals and nice externals. The mag well and mag problems are the only major issues.

AK Style Mag (500 bb's)

Small battery compartment

Magazine broke (may be able to fix though)
I personally don't like the hand grip...

ok this is the best gun i got to use so far, by far. i used this gun in battle today in a bad airsoft field up in VT. the gun blew my mind at the crono 472fps with .20 gram, then to pass the test i had to use .25 gram and still had 430-448 fps. the told me it was ok. but not to bring the gun back. the gun has a range up to 210 feet. in single shot i picked off a guy on a hill from 200 feet (no lobbing). the next up grade is a tight bore and a scope. mini sniper.

with .20gram your looking at 472fps
with .25gram your looking at 430-448fps
i was out shooting the G&G sr-25 and i dont have a tight bore, for half the cost.
the cost $210.....
all metal and wood
the cleaning rod on the gun really works, thats a nice.

i dont have any. im sorry in the 8 hrs of play today. i did not find one. i would say add a tight bore but never had a problem picking them off from 200 feet out.

ok...all I got to say is: WOW

this gun is amazing. externally, this gun is sexy, i mean the real wood, and full metal combined is a pretty sexy combo. It also has very nice internals!

Get this gun, I promise you wont be dissapointed

the body. WOW this is one of a kind. if you just hold this weapon you think you can take anyone on.
seems like its not going to break at all

Stock fps on mine was 430 average with the .20 which im quite pleased with. I love it!
The ROF is fine, just make sure you get a 9.6v or else its gonna be slow cuz of the fps


the only con i could find on this gun would be the magazine chamber.

the mag goes in just fine, but there is no click in so you got to look at your gun when your swapping mags.

wow, umm this gun is awesome. the body is flawless and so are the internals

The body, is by far the best ive ever seen on an airsoft gun. and you feel confident when your holding this gun

the stock internals are great! just make sure to get atleast a 9.6v battery or else suffer from a not quite satisfying ROF cuz this gun is shooting hot! , mine chronoed in at average 430 fps. of course ounce the spring has been properly broken in, it will shoot around 410-415, still VERY good.

fps = 430 average. thats stock!

the mag is wobbly and sometimes you dont get the click you want to hear. other then that this gun is a beast
