Echo 1 Troy
King arms M4A1.
The king arms obviously has better internals, but basic M4 carbines don't please me. If I want to get it how I like an M4, R.I.S, rail system, crane stock, flip up sights, it's going to be quite expensive.
The echo 1 has all of those, but internally is just a chinese clone. Fortunately, I have a good gundoc. He can turn a shit gearbox into something worth shooting. I'm planning on getting it shimmed, re greased, upgrade the piston and have some other work done on it.
I like how the king arms one is full metal, but I also don't mind poly carb. Its very light, and easy to carry. I found that the echo 1 will be a lot less costly to upgade and will end up looking better, but my opinion isn't as good as the ASC opinion. What do you guys think?
you want something different, bulletproof and cheap? nothing in that category but if you want something unique and as close to a bulletproof toy gun as you can get, get a FCC PTW
Any AEG/GBB will breakdown even the uber leet PTW they either happen in the beginning from shoddy assembly, QC or later on down the line from worn parts, it is a toy afterall and any expectation of a RS longevity is unrealistic. when will that happen who knows? it depend on how you use the toy, as far as your two choices both are quite good Echo1 have traditionally used VFC as their rebranded item
