Echo1 Limited Edition Platinum Magpul M4 Airsoft AEG Rifle w/ Soft Case by VFC
by Nathan I. Date Added: Wednesday 30 July, 2014
Alright, this gun is definitely a VFC M4 as it is a VFC OEM. When I got it I had to tighten a few things up (buffer tube, motor grip motor screw, etc) which is pretty common in VFC M4s and very easy to fix. When all tightened up this gun is rock solid. No wobbles or creaks. Feels very similar to a real AR which definitely works to it's favor for airsoft realist. The bolt catch is very neat and very tight which is awesome. The gun Has decent range and good ROF and FPS on a 7.4v lipo (15-16 RPS at 395-405 FPS with hop off). Internally this gun is pretty consistent with other V2 VFCs minus the hop, barrel, and spring. The spring is definitely a plus for field players as it is stronger than most other VFCs. The only problem I have had with it so far is that the motor contacts were loose. The gun just stopped shooting, and at first I thought it was the trigger contacts but turned out to be the motor contacts when someone else had taken a look at it. Turned out to be an easy 5 minute fix, no problem. Also this thing can not accommodate a 9.6v butterfly without a different stock, as it must use a buffer tube lipo with the given Magpul stock. First upgrades I recommend for this gun are a new barrel, and a new hopup as range leaves a little to be desired.

- It is a VFC
- Near perfect field FPS
- Good ROF

- Many things need tightening but that's easy to do
- Limited battery space with Magpul stock

Overall this gun is another great VFC M4. Very realistic and externally stunning as well as having good internals. Definitely recommend this thing to anyone who is interested in getting a VFC.
