You can get a lot of that in country.

Unless you're planning on importing something from some ex-soviet country that uses a controlled substance in the sight... but that's not normally an issue unless you're using real military sights.

That's what i was thinking, and i heard a few people mention ehobby so i thought i would give it a try. Any other suggestions for overseas accessories for airsoft? But don't worry I'm still spending a fair amount in the Canadian market. :wink:

Considering this is suppose to be a review thread, you might want to ask this in a new post in the newbie tank or something.

Very nice review! Was wondering about Echo 1's version of the P90 for awhile now. Do have an question: Are the Echo1 mags an good fit for an TM P90 version and vice versa?
cheers

I just found this review online since I was looking at p-90 pictures online for fun.

I got the TM one like 2 years ago for 350 USD (I think) modded to 475 fps and an upgraded battery to keep the rate of fire high. (Those battery upgrades are wierd cause it's amazing they fit). Also I find the "plinking" comment funny. Mine goes through aluminum cans

For some reason it looks like that echo 1 is a reverse engineer of the TM one. I'm sure it's different inside though. Have you used both? If so are they identical inside?

Almost every other AEG manufacturer copis Tokyo Marui. Why should a cheap clone company like Echo1 be any different? And yes, the Echo1 uses a V6 mechbox.

FYI Echo 1 does not manufacture guns, they only rebrand them under their own name, similar to Aftermath.

This particular P90 is made by a lesser known A.C.M. brand called KS.

Mine will go through cans at 350 fps. No problems there at all. Usually, I shoot at paper targets mounted on my home-made backstop.

And it's a 100% TM clone as far as I know. If you look at the YouTube videos I posted from that other guy, he does a comparison of both the TM and E1.

that's in the US tho, a BNIB TM P90 would be much more here. as importing airsoft is illegal and if you are going to pay $600 i would want a better body for it, the well seems like a good alternative!

The review on Arnies stated that the E90 has a two stage trigger not unlike the AUG when the selector is set to full auto. Can you confirm that?
