PostSubject: Echo1 M4 any good?   Wed Mar 05, 2008 8:02 pm

I've been thinking about buying this gun for a cqb gun, since I saw the rof on the airsoft reports review. I am buying my team loadout with the gun, so the price for a new gun needs to stay low. So, what should I look out for on this gun?

I thought you hated M4s? Why not just go with the Echo 1 G36, it is proven(I can tell you...), we would both have G36s so we could share mags, and it is smaller.

I'd get the G36C. It's shorter, more accurate, higher mag cap, and about the same power. If you like M4's then sure, but the G36 is a better gun.

Lol, I'm not an m4 fan at all, its just G36 mag pouches are so freakin hard to find, but would probably fit in an AK mag pouch. I have been looking at the G36c though.

Well, you can clamp g36 mags together

what kind of mags would you be using?

Because you would only need like 3 high caps max.

Not the way he plays, and we will need pouches to complete the plate carrier look. However, they will fit in AK pouches as we have discuseed, so he really shouuld just go G36.

Yeah, I use about 1200 in one round. And close to 5000 in a day. Oh, and I hate the way they clamp together, makes me nervous the nubs will snap, then your mag is screwed.

I play cqb too, and thats waaaayyy to many rounds. Yes, its true that you will use more bb's in cqb, but using 5000 in one day is a tad too much. Ill admit I do use a lot too, but I dont think I have ever gone through over a bag of bb's in one day. I have found that the g36 is a much more effective cqb weapon than the m4, but its all personal preferance. The g36 is much better at letting you slice the pie and it gives you more mobility, so thats something to consider.

well, I had a very bad expirience with my M4, after the first week, the stock fell off. not just that little piece for the stock, the stock and the freakin bar to! once I put it back together, the gun jammed in about a month. I had to take it apart, to unclear the jam. When i finished, the rate of fire decreased like crazy, and the gun doesnt always shoot any more. I dont know if I got a lemon or not. I had a much better expirience with a E1 G36c

You got a lemon. The M4 is a great gun, buut the G36c is probably better.
