Echo 1 ASR Knowledge Compendium

Okay so if I get an upgrade kit, do I need to get a new trigger assembly as well or can the stock one handle the heavier springs?

No one has reported trigger assembly failure from using the Echo 1 Upgrade Kit. I don't know of anyone that currently has the Angel Customs Kit installed to vouch for that one.

I thought the trigger units for this rifle were proprietary?

They definitely look like they are but sI really hope they aren't.

And thank you to all who have helped me with all my ASR questions. I hope I can learn fast and then be able to give back by helping other new snipers.

Hey guys, I am getting ready to order a new barrel due to bending the crap out of my old one. Unfortunately, it's just going to be a Madbull Version 2. Would you recommend the 509mm or the 455mm (stock length)?

I've heard mixed reviews between the two. I chose the 455mm to add a functioning (permanent to be legal) silencer should I desire.

Well I've got the rifle and I'm in love with her! I think the guy I got it from may have already installed a new hopup unit, as he's using the mad bull black python TBB, which I'm pretty sure is an AEG barrel which isn't compatible with the stock hopup if I remember correctly. It came with 2 hopup units, and they are slightly different from each other. The gun perform overall very well even though it's mostly stock other than the barrel and possibly the hopup unit. I'll update it as I upgrade.

I have opened the trigger box and found that one of the sears is proprietary and the sear that pulls the piston back is l96.

I have baught an angel custom piston with a guarder piston head and I have to say I like it a lot. The seal of the guader piston head is excellent and the piston seems very sturdy. If the quality of this piston is the same for the upgrade kit I don't think you have to worry too much.

Dont everyone say longer barrel more range??
I saw a review that shower the 3 version WE g39 GBBR crono and the one with the shorter barrel the G39c shot the hardest and the longer one the slowest FPS?!?!

Can you give me a bit oninfo on this aspect, I'm trying to get a nice sniper rifle : D

Longer barrels usually give you higher FPS, until the volume of the barrel is too much for the cylinder volume to handle, and you get a drop in FPS.

With the ASR cylinder I wouldn't go over a 455 IMO.

@Madhellsing: Spend some more time reading around here and specifically searching for threads on barrel length. Longer barrel very rarely = longer range. Also, comparing GBBRs to spring bolt guns or AEGs is like apples and oranges.

1 year update: A year after I bought my ASR and the gun is still very solid.

Over 525FPS with the Echo 1 kit and no trigger or sear problems to report.

#93 rubber O-ring (~$1.50) fits perfect in the Echo 1 upgrade piston and gives me a much better seal. After spending a few hours at my local hardware store and trying a number of different sizes this O-ring was a small victory for me, even if the staff did think I was crazy.

The buffer tube is commercial spec AR. I have real steel Magpul MOE stocks in both mil-spec and Comm-Spec. Mil-spec is super tight but can be jammed on. Comm-spec fits how it is supposed to.

I am still using the stock barrel and hop-up, and with .30g madbulls and I can usually hit any player I shoot at.

After my 1 year anniversary with this gun I have finally decided to keep it for the long haul. Now I am researching which tbb barrel to go with.

There are three aftermarket companies that come to mine that makes stronger bolt handles, PDI, SPEED, Guarder.

I snapped the pot metal bolt handle on my Echo1 M28 with a M150 spring.

Not for the ASR. Nobody really makes anything for the ASR.

Is the cylinder not compatible to APS-2 which is CA M24?

Does the ASR need upgrades? Are there a lot of ASR owners?
