"The aptly named 'GAT'
Modeled after the KG-9/TEC-9 sub-gun, the GAT or General Assault Tool is perfect for CQB or any close range fighting; even maybe a back up for a sniper. Mine chrono'd between 308-315 with .25s and firing away with a Burst Wizard verified 22 rounds per second when powered by an 11.1v LiPo.
Good weight and heft to it as the upper is metal and the lower receiver is polymer. Can easily be one handed or shot sideways!
Hop is easy to adjust and accessed by pulling the charging handle. Speaking of charging handle, it is the ONLY let down of the Echo 1 GAT. It is made of very light plastic and a very weak return spring. There is no satisfying cocking sound or feel at all. I guess Echo 1 had to cut corners somewhere.
Battery is housed inside the fore grip and takes a little bit of getting used to get a battery installed. While the fore grip doesn't detract too much from the GAT's looks, its not very ergonomic when firing. I use a PTS EPF instead.
Range is definitely better than a pistol but I would not go as far as saying the GAT can match other AEGs in terms of range. Its a short barreled SMG and its intended for close ranges. My MP5 easily outranges the GAT with better shot groupings.
GAT comes with 2 high caps but aren't very good. At full auto its probably only good for 30 rounds before needed to be wounded up to full click. Anything less than that, the magazine would not feed.
Pistol sights aren't very useful and there are no rails for a red dot sight. No provisions for a stock either like the real thing, But hey, it is what it is: a point-and-shoot gat!
-- Because you want a better back up for sniping than a pistol
-- Because you want a specific look. Face it, its gangsta.
-- its LiPo ready, use a LiPo. Anything less its not worth it.
-- Get mid caps.
-- Its LOUD
DONT GET IT:
-- If you think it can go up against M4's.
"this gun works amazing! it shoots like a laser when properly sighted in with the hopup. the range is good for any cqb arena but wouldnt recommend it for outdoors. the only problem i had with it was the charging handle on the side broke off, but its not a problem, its still easy to access the hopup.
heavy enough to feel realistic
charging handle cheap
battery is tricky to get in
"Good gun when it works
I have had this gun for a couple months now but I have been plagued with problems.
The range is on par with rifle aegs because of the pre upgraded bucking
It is lipo ready but I usually just use the stock 8.4 battery because its hard to find batteries to fit.
Metal upper receiver and 2 x 250 round hicaps included
The battery compartment is utter garbage. This compartment feels like an ill conceived idea. In no way shape or form does the battery compartment feel like a completed gun. They could have easily made the battery to fit into the upper receiver.
The gun is HARD to upgrade because of the strange/custom gearbox.
Barrel is a little short so accuracy is not the best
FPS is lacking for outdoor games.
DOES NOT WORK IN THE COLD
I was outside and tried to fire this gun once and the gearbox instantly locked up. Ill have you know that the weather was a little under freezing but AEGS can handle the cold so theres no reason for the gun to lock up.
Magazines are high quality but the loading doors are hard to open and they are a little weird in the gun. They will no free fall out the bottom of the gun you literally have to yank them out when pressing the mag release.
This gun feels like a prototype and for 160$ I would go with a different sub machine gun because there are better alternatives.
