Another option coming for Airsoft Sniper rifles



" The Echo 1 M28 bolt action sniper rifle. Re-vamped "M24" style rifle with a true 1:1 scale body and fluted barrel. Also features new Echo 1 super smooth bolt for high power without the struggle to cock it.

If you're looking for a new bolt action sniper rifle this is a sure bet. High power out the box complete with a fantastic exterior appearance.

Features:

* Polymer Body
* Pica tinny RAS Unit for mounting optics
* Metal Spring Loaded Bi pod
* Adjustable Butt Plate
* 2 Magazines
* Threaded Barrel Adapter
* Fluted Outer barrel
* ~490 Fps Out of Box

ETA Early December"

Looks like an interesting option

pretty damn hot out of the box; but seems like a good gun, just the name that bothers me

I have a feeling components would fail pretty quick shooting 490.

Just a rebrand of the Javelin Arms one I think.

Heh. I have some arriving today or tomorrow. They have been downgraded to shoot 430fps, and include the original spring.

Price will be around $380 (had them shipped by air, price should go down with the next shipments).

Sweet. Let us know if it has a metal "receiver", and ,if possible, let us know if it is parts compatible with any of the usual BA's (TM VSR 10, CA M24, or APS2)?
Hopefully not the VSR 10, considering the slam fire issue can only be remedied with a zero trigger set up, which is no longer manufactured. But if it is CA M24 compatible, you might see these flying off the shelf.

BTW, enjoy your holidays.

Metal receiver, and it seems as if the mags are compatible with APS2.

Thanks . See you all in 2 weeks!!

Thank you for the prompt response with the receiver question.
So it would seem that it could be CA M24 compatible (seeing as the APS2 and CA M24 mags are almost interchangeable). Hmm, possibly sensing a third BA for my arsenal (just gonna have to wait for the review).

We're going to try to get it done on Saturday, if it's too busy then it will be done over the next couple of weeks and I'll upload it when I get back in.

I am sure they will hold up...The Echo1 ASR came with nice sears compaired to other clone rifles and comes shooting teh same out of teh box and has an upgrade kit.

On some forums I have heard guy being about to shoot 550+ with stock trigger and sears with no problems
