PostSubject: i need a new gun   Tue Mar 06, 2007 11:22 am

hey guys,this is my first post here. i am needing a new aeg and i have narrowed it down to these 3, the Echo1 M16, the Echo1 M4, and the Echo1 MP5. i play cqb and woodland battles. i need a gun soon,and i cant decide which would be best for me. the m4 and mp5 should shoot almost the same,shouldnt they? all my friends have utg mp5's,so i want something better. i am a designated marksman guy but i use aegs instead. i had a well r7 bu the spring power dramacticly decreased. would the m16 be too big for cqb even if i just sniped? i have heard all about the barrel wobble and stock wobble with the m4's,and i thnik there was a review of how to fix them here,will the wobble completly stop or continue? i need something sturdy that will last a long time. also,i mainly use my guns on semi,so i am not too concerned about ROT,but it would be a plus. thanks guys!

Echo 1 M4. Will dominate Woodland and CQB. It will send those UTG MP5's back to heck.

ok,i might need yalls help modding it,but i think it will be fine. i have heard that the battery wont fit,is this true? also,what is the RPS on the gun? i have heard anywhere from 10-17. hopefully i will get a good one,that will not be wobbly and will shoot 350 FPS+. thanks!

The Battery does fit, you'll have to cut the zip ties in the handguard. It will shoot about 320-340. I don't know about the rof though.

380fps and a RoF of around 8-10RPS on V2.
V1 is 340-350fps and a RoF of 13-15RPS.

ok,thanks! i think the gun will be a v1 from what i've heard. i might get that or the m16,whichever one. i play cqb about 10 times a year and play woodland combat 12-15 times a year. how much more accurate is the m16 when used stock in the 100-150 ft. range? will it hit more accuratly at that range than the m4? there is only like 6 inches differance i think. thanks for all yall's help!

The M16 won't be significantly different from the M4, so considering that you do CQB, the M4 is your best bet, unless you want to go with an S-System--Echo 1 is releasing their own S-System soon. I also recommend the A&K M-series, just got mine in today, and it's very good.

how fast does your new gun shoot? could you post a link to it? where did you gert it from? i have heard that they only shoot 300 FPS,but i guess i could save up some more money and upgrade the crap out of it. if it already has a metal body,that would be great. also,how long have yall had your m4's? do they have barrel wobble yet?

-edit- would this be the same as the Echo1 M4? it is alot cheaper and i was just wondering. i know that Echo1 just re-brands jg guns,so this should be the same.

Please avoid double posting. Use the edit button. Thanks--Crimson

The gun shoots about 340 fps with tightbore. Check out www.airsoftgi.com, and look for the A&K AEG line. It doesn't have metal receivers, unfortunately, but still pretty solid. I'll add the link to my review in the review section. It has a one piece outer barrel to reduce barrel wobble, unlike the Echo 1. They're separate lines--Echo 1 rebrands JG, A&K is something else. The A&K is also typically cheaper than JG or Echo 1.

how long do you think the new v2 would last? would the m120 spring be too much for the other internals? i think i might get the gun tommorrow,so i need an answer before then. my best friend just ordered the jg g36 v2 so i wanna have something better. should i go with higher fps or higher rps? thanks!

I believe so, those are pretty good. Check out magazines on www.evike.com and www.ehobbyasia.com, they'll be cheaper.

No problem, enjoy the gun. If you can get a one piece outer barrel for it, it will be a lot more durable too. All the best,

Crimson
