Echo1 Spectre Rapid Deploy Pistol (RDP) Airsoft AEG Sub Machine Gun
Designed in the mid 1980's, the Spectre is a light weight and compact weapon designed to fill a close quarters combat role. Aside from its impressive firepower at short range engagements, what makes this weapon unique is the high capacity "casket magazine" which is best described as a double-double stack mag which utilizes a quad-column design to hold extra ammunition for the same length.
The Rapid Deploy Pistol (RDP) is the latest compact CQB weapon from Echo1. It features full-sized version 3 compatible internals in a custom gearbox that can be upgraded to anything you could imagine. The RDP makes an excellent primary or backup weapon due to its very compact size and is light enough you could even wield two RDPs.

"Beast gun,very cool gun,soots fast, great for CQB, i used it in the field once. 10/10
"The RDP is a faithful recreation of the SITES Spectre M4, to a certain degree. It's an awesome unicorn weapon, but falls short where it really counts.
External build quality is really good.
It's a Spectre and not just another P90 or MP5.
Internal quality is on par with other SMG replicas in this range.
Fieldable right out of the box, sorta.
Fully V3 parts compatible.
Battery included and even a 7.4 LiPo will not fit in the battery compartment without some serious mods or loads of tape (like what I had to do!)
Magazines are limited to 40 rounds and no mid-caps or hi-caps are available for it. You'll run dry faster than other players with similar priced AEGs.
No option to add a stock unless you modify one.
Magazines are a bit too easy to release by mistake.
Hop-up is relatively difficult to adjust, especially for gloved users.
Selectors and safety are pretty confusing to those not knowledgeable of the Spectre.
Selectors are really hard to move out of the box.
Ergonomics of the grips feel uncomfortable.
All in all, the RDP is a unique replica and has lots of potential to be a wonderful CQb weapon or sniper's sidearm, but it was plagued with cutbacks and cut corners in development. If you can catch on sale or used, you'll be happy, but for full price, you should look elsewhere.
"Got this in February and have been using it ever since. I. Love. This. Gun. I have zero complaints about it (aside from the safety lever falling off, but whatever it shoots) and have a hell of a time using it every time I'm playing CQB. I can get around corners faster than everyone else using an M4 or literally any other gun and it shoots accurately enough that I have gotten some nice kills, not really a gun that you aim too much with though. I have attached a sling and use that to stabilize my aim by holding the Spectre as far away from my body as possible. This allows me to make precise shots while also being able to bring it back in close for coming around corners; think of it as a more efficient folding stock. I love this gun and am extremely happy I got it.
