"OK to start off with the rifle is amazing to look at! That's about the extent of it I really want this rifle to work but it's just not the product I know echo 1 can put out. The internals are subpar. I just got my gun a few days ago for a tournament this weekend and am thinking I should have went with the vsr 10 gspec.
Straight out of the box this rifle had a problem the spring after you cock the gun seriously is bending the bolt against the top of the chamber causing it to scratch and making a very very un smooth movement. I'm very disappointed that it is doing this without playing a single game.
The fps is great and the gun hurts but it's just not worth the money. I have nothing against echo 1 just wish the product was better. I don't belive there are many aftermarket parts for it even though they say the vsr is compatible I would just go with the vsr.

Pros
.shoots hard
.looks absolutely beautiful
.Very nice weight feels just like the real steel
Suppressor is nice and heavy well made

Con
The internals
Upgradeability
The bolt

"I had the gun for roughly 2 years before i traded it for a Socom Gear Novak 1911, which by then the gun was only shooting 320 FPS, and sniping is not really my thing, so before you call me an idiot, I got the better end of the deal. Anyway on to the review:

PRO's
Durable exterior
Balanced weight
Easy to shoot
Harris style bipod included

CON's
FPS is not consistant
Inaccurate
Plastic piston and spring guide
People don't call hits becasue they don't feel it
Expensize.............

3/5 because the exterior is probably the best you can get for its price, but the internals are not worth the $175 price tag. In order to make this gun a good sniper rifle, you may be throwing another $100 into it with upgrades. If I had to make the choice to go back and buy this, I would get an AEG instead.

"I just received this gun today and its amazing. Built strong,shots hard,good accuracy bolt pullers hard but not a big deal it is to be expected with the power. the only problem i have is that none of my mags will feed even the spare magi bought unless i keep my hand pressed up on the mag which is very hard to do being left handed dose anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it!!!!!

"Performs good for 500 shots. Then your internals are basically shot. After upgrading, would be 5 stars. Fps is overall insane. about 200 foot range. Long barrel. trashy bipod. Mag holds 18 rounds low capacity. Paint can scratch off of barrel. Tight accuracy at 150 feet. Great silencer adaptor. Overall if you're not willing to bring up to useful standards with upgraded internals, this is not the gun for you. Very overpriced, with still great performance... for when it lasts. USE HEAVY BBS.

"I'll start off by saying this is NOT a READY TO PLAY OUT OF THE BOX GUN. I bought one of these years ago and it's been the biggest piece of poop till today. I finally just got this thing working. Shoots like a laser now, but it took a lot of work and research to get it there. Lots of DIY mods. Biggest problem with this gun is the trigger mech and piston. The 45 degree sear set up just doesn't work with this gun. After its cocked the piston is pushed up into the top of the cylinder causing tons of friction when trying to push the bolt forward. More than what a VSR 10 does.

I finally installed my 90 degree S-trigger from Springer and cut the 45 degree on the back of the piston to a 90 degree. Thing cycles so smoothly now.

Here's a couple of the mods I did.

- 90 Degree Trigger and piston
- Patrol Base paper wrapped barrel spacer (makes a huge difference in accuracy)
- TDC hop up adjuster

Overall way over priced and you should only buy this gun from the boneyard cause you'll have to replace parts and put lots of work into it.

"So i bought an Echo 1 m28 a month and a half back because i saw these great reviews on it. If youre only lookig for positive reviews MOVE ON because i have nothing good to say about this gun. The very first day i got the gun i shot about 500 .25 bbs out of it. It was fast and accurate , i even let my friend shoot me from 150 ft away and i still have the scar hahaha. But thats all the fun i ever got out of this gun. The cylinder began to jam up when i would try to push it in. I would have to wiggle it, and it would eventually push but only with some effort on my end. So i figured it was defective and sent it back. I got my 2nd gun and the 2nd time i shot it, something got messed up in the trigger box. I could not pull the trigger, almost as if it was on safety(which it was not). I would have to push the trigger forward slightly and then could i fire. Then about 5 minutes after that, after i shot i could not pull the bolt up for the life of me. Im not hating on Echo 1; just giving my honest review. Do not buy this gun. The fps looks nice, but the internals are so bad that the gun will break after a couple uses...
