"Tec 9, armor, RUSH B!!!!
All jokes aside, this is a pretty good gun for the money. I was going for other GBB pistol to play indoor super CQB environment. But I remembered about this little guy and thought why not. The upper is made out of metal minus the bolt cover being plastic and feels really cheap. When put together, the cover will not slide back by it self being only held by a single spring attached to the front of the gun. The lower receiver is also made out of plastic but feels 20x better. The hop up is a little bit weird with .20 so I'd recommend .25 or heavier. When turning all the way down with .20, BBs are still curved up under 30 ft. To put the battery in, you will have to turn it up side down and play with the wire for a bit.
-Heavy weight [might be a con for smaller guy]
-Good build quality [except the bolt cover]
-Good side arm or even primary for CQB games
-Comes with 2 high cap mags
-Game ready out of the box [x2 mags, battery, normal charger]
-Very cheap bolt cover and I mean VERY CHEAP
-Battery is tricky to put in
-Weird hop up
-No trigger respond
"So to start, most people who get this gun get it to mod it, and use its parts, which is cool and all, but if you wanna use the gun for itself like I do, this is the run down of what youre gonna wanna know:
-High fire rate, even with non LiPo
-Really loud, imo really cool
- very sturdy, easy to mod
-hits hard, and once you fix any problems you may have, is very accurate
-Not very great out of the box, Hi-caps that come with it wont feed the last 30 or so bullets
-Over hops heavily with the mad-bull bucking, I upgraded to the G&G weather resistant bucking, which works much better: http://www.evike.com/products/36022/
-hopup is basically non existent, with it turned "up" its just on, and if you turn it "down" the bbs roll out the end of the barrel. Its basically pre adjusted, with just an on or off switch.
-Battery front grip kinda takes away from the tec-9 look, although modding it to put battery in barrel is elementary work
OVERALL when you fix the issues the gun becomes very reliable and extremely fun to use, but depending on how well your bucking was put in/was molded in the factory you may need to buy a different one. I find that Mad-bull buckings are better fit for snipers and using .4s and dealing with heavy springs, its just too thick for this tiny barrel and gun. The hop up is also pretty dumb, and I dont even know how to fully work it yet. Seems like its just "on" or "off", will keep you posted. Overall, good gun and very cool looking, but not without its quirks. Easy fixes, just annoying.
"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.
