Echo1 CAW ATS shotty

So I just got me this baby and figured I would do a little review. Mind you I have not gamed it yet or had a chance to test range or anything tho I did manage to chrony it.

So the the Shotty is made by CAW and re-branded with the Echo1 name on it. Even says so on the manual. Now berfore I start a interesting thing about this shot gun is that it uses mags and not shells. On top of that is also only fires 1 bb's at a time and is spring powered.

The build of the gun is mainly ABS, allot like the TM shot guns. Tho the thing feels pretty dam solid. Not nearly as nice as a Full metal Tanaka, but it has a nice weight to it and is very comfortable to shoulder. I have used a TM super 90 in the past and it felt very long and hard for me to hold since I am not a 6 foot tall white dude :P



Mag that loads in the bottom like a regular shotty.



Now the stock is pretty neat, but kinda hard to use. It has 5 postions you can lock in, but in order to move it you need to push a button, rotate the stock at a angle and slide it down. Plus finding the different points is kinda tough since you have to line it up with a groove on then turn it back to lock it in place.



Now the box says this baby will do 420 FPS with .20g. Now I chorned this thing at 395 with .20g. The interesting thing is that being a springer and with the FPS pretty dam hight the forgrip is not that hard to cock. Compared to my TM spa-12 and Tm shorty I would say this one is actually easier even tho this ones shoots much harder. My TM's only do around 250-260 FPS with 3 bb's. Also the forgrip ABS is kinda hard to grip and I bet putting on some tape or somthing would make it even easier to grip and rack.



While I only just got this so far I have to say I like it. It feel snice, was not uber pricey like the Marushin or Tanaka shottys, has a top rail and good performance. Have no data on how reliable it is yet tho and the it is a spinger shot gun that fires 1 bb's at a time so you could say it's actually more like a sniper rifle. Mind you I take that as a plus since I like the idea of pulling out my shotty and sniping someone Anyone who has run a TM shotty outdoors knows how hard it is to get with in 15 meters to get a kill!



Will post up more info after I game it.

Amano out!

Try gaming a Super 90 when your asian, 5'7 and can only bench 90 pounds

It's tough. The only reason I can pump my shot guns is well.......I like you pump my gun :P

It wasn't that bad as far as price, being Echo1 it was pretty affordable, but still it's airsoft Lets just say more than $350.

More then 350? You could get a TM shotgun for that, though...Weren't these things selling for like, 90 bucks? Then again, it's almost the same mark up for those Jing Gong AEGs.

No even on U.S sites this thing goes for $200 US so if you do CDN airsoft math. You get the idea.

I do own 2 tm shotties as well and so far this one if different. Kinda like a outdoor shotty. Tho it says Echo1 it is built by CAW and they make some pretty nice stuff too.

I have not tried using TM Shells, but this one uses a mag so I doubt they will work.

As far as I know this is one of the only ones in Canada. Unless you have a older CAW model and was the only one for sale. All I can say

really looking forward to trying it out for winter too since it would be a great back up.

Are you going to keep this one on your back as well, or maybe get a second holster to carry it and the M3 in like an X on your back? Badass!
