First of all I think they (admins) WILL tell ya to clean up your grammer and THEN they'll ask you to be more specific in your posting. Or that's what at least I would ask. Like this:

Yes it counts. "Any good"? For what? What about durAbility, accuracy (any airsoft gun IS somewhat accurate, if kept clean etc. and it's more about wind, upgrades, air temperature and other few things (others please fill me in on those) matter WAY MORE than the gun itself. Want to know how long a stock battery lasts? There might be some statistics (once again someone fill me in if you know some ), but usually it lasts longer the less you shoot and (since it is a stock battery) the lower fps it has, since more horsepower makes the engine require more gas aka energy from the battery, IF you got my point. ;)

Wandall.. Honestly.. If we needed another Moderator. You would be first up to bat.

Perfect man.

Austin, this is the third time I've had to warn you about your horrible grammar (Amungst other basic errors), I've let a lot of your posts slide, but this is where the line is drawn. You're banned for 24 hours for failing to comply with our grammar and spelling rules and regulations. Simply use the spell-check button if you're unsure about a word as well as capitalize your words and put apostrophes in appropriate areas.

To answer your question at hand.. Stop making us be your personal little research junkies. Get this through your head.. Clones are clones for a reason, the fact that they are cheaply and mass produced, and backed by nothing really more than the fact that "Hey, it's so cheap.. Who cares?". How about for the future you utilize Google to your full ability and type in Echo1 M14 Review (I did it, and came up with 10 results right off the bat.. All FULL extensive reviews).

So anyways, stop wasting our time... Because to be quite honest, it's rude, and not to mention annoying. The only thing that bugs me more than when little kids persevere the role of a Scout/Sniper is when they go to a well respected forum, such as this one, and ask questions that have not only been already answered on this board several times in the past, but can be found in millionths of a second on Google.

The end.

Honestly dude, if you're going to tell someone to use Google and search, you should at least have a brief answer for them. It's easy to tell someone to search, but to actually make the forum grow, give out good information, not just for the poster asking the question, but for future posters that may have the same question.

Austin, to answer your question the Echo 1 EBR is pretty solid. Very heavy, and pretty damn accurate. For the most part, you'll just have to throw a tightbore barrel and a new hop up rubber in it, and you'll be good to go.

Most of the time the batteries that come with clone rifles are pretty crappy, so I would invest in a nice Sanyo or something of the sort. A good 9.6 mini would supply you a good amount of power that will last hours of gameplay.

You're not going to have the range capable of most bolt action rifles, but you will have the advantage with more rounds being thrown down field. You'll most likely be able to reach out to about 60 yards and hit a man sized target.

I know I should probably do a search, but really.. How hard is it for him to just type in google.com and enter in the information?

I mean, I've never personally owned one, but I can take a stab in the dark on how they perform as opposed to any other clone out there.

Doc's performed fairly well with what little was in it, so it really isn't a bad replica. We both know how well the Echo 1 M14 series is, this really isn't any different.

Okay guys, how about instead of burning time in this post we all turn our backs on it and start looking and use our capabilities on other topics? (That don't lack grammar or sanity...)

Fair enough.. For the sake of me sounding like a broken record, I'll do a brief synopsis on the Echo 1 M14.. So all others can look and plunder upon it's clonely clone-ness.

Overall Feel & Appearance:

Well, when you open the box, you'll see all your basics.. One high-capacity magazine, one wall charger, and a small type battery, along with the weapon, an unjamming rod, and possibly even a little handful of bb's. You pick it up and notice that the stock is sort of a rubbery plastic, not really as smooth as real plastic, but not full blown fiberglass or something of that effect either.

Accuracy:

You'll probably be reaching out to about 40-50 yards max, anything more and you can expect to be aiming a few feet above the guys head to hit. However at ranges between 25-40 yards.. Hitting the person isn't much of a problem, and anything less than 25 you find that you can almost hit TOO easily.

Doctor Mosin's Recommendation:

As far as upgrades go, I'd say leave this sucker stock. Unless your extremely knowledgeable in Version 7 Gearbox's, then it's a safe bet to just leave it as is, and don't bother with tinkering. As far as bb's go, I'd say shoot .25's out of it, you'll have a very nice accuracy and still a lot of force behind it (More so than a .2 at longer ranges).

Final Synopsis:

I rate this gun a 8/10 stars, because of it's low price and great performance, you can expect to see some good stuff here, and know that you're getting your money's worth. As far as overall feel and realistic counterpart interpretation, you'll notice the stock doesn't feel anything like the real steel counter-part... However the ejection port is made out of a pot metal that sound extremely intimidating when racked back by your charging handle.

Correction, the Echo 1 and other clone M14's use a modify Version 7/2 gearbox. Meaning that you can use Version two parts, in the same layout as a Version seven.

Other than that, Mosin is right.

Right, I just ment like the shell and inner configurations are Version 7.. However it does accept Version 2 parts. So if parts are what you want, they're reletively cheap, as far as installation goes.. You better know what you're doing and take a lot of pre-teardown pictures.
