kk. The full stock has a great feel, and a surprising rate of fire for an Echo 1. The gun is not to heavy since it is NOT a full metal gun. It has magnets in the handle, and a FULL METal RIS system. My friends came with a MP5J manual and it is certainly have a plastic body. and stock

Yeah I heard that the handle-piece (im not sure what it's called, exacly. bottom reciever?) is plastic as well as the fullstock, but I'm assuming it's ABS plastic. And for the Manual it comes with, the MP5-J and A4 are virtually the same, the only difference that I can see is the battery placement

The reasonit is the same is since the gun is NOT full metal, Not even pot metal like CAs. The pistol grip is Plastic. Maybe an extra weight or two. And the battery placement in the stock. For these VAs take out the full metal, They are pretty much the same except for the springs.

40 bucks more, for a RIS rail, a m120 Spring, metal bushings, Metal Spring guide. Hell yeah thats a good deal. Take your stock MP5A4. It may have metal bushings, it may not. But it is already, at my store $40 to put in a M120 Spring and the RIS kit, is pretty expensive. In otherwords, Go for it. Also, what part do you live in Illnois, I have a person looking for a player who plays near VIlla Park IL, which is pretty much right next to Chicago.

The Echo 1 runs off a M120 for there vector arms series, meaning 400+ FPS. The gun also comes with a metal bushings and spring guide. Which i believe the JG doesnt, come with. But I cant confirm it. The JG is rebranded by ECHO1. Also it doesnt have any magnets Smile

JGs usually shoot from 350 to 380, so you don't exactly know how powerful your gun will be. The VA MP5 comes with metal bushings, metal spring, an M120 spring, and a sector gear clip. (helps it feed better)

Thats a really good choice. Do note that it does not come with a rail on the top of the gun, but only on the forgrip, so if you want to put a scope on, you will have to get a mount for the MP5, I believe they are called claw mounts.

It comes with a 30mm mount that will work for scopes and red dots. (the front sight will be in the way for scopes)

It's not a rail system though, it's a "ring" that can hold a 30mm scope

I own a JG/E1 G36c and must say it's frigin amazing! .20 gram bb's or higher are a must! as i learned today when i managed to bet my hands on some. This gun shoots really hard! wind the mag up all the way and shoot at a baked bean can (the bottom) it will go through it. The rails aren't so important to me but they are handy to have and if you want different ones you can upgrade them easily, It is very sturdy and is worth the money. After upgrades (which i will hopefully get soon) it should be good for a while. however i would get a better battery (as in life span off one charge) or a spare to replace the one in the gun after it dies (so you can keep playing while the other one charges) any way it worth it i got mine off ebay for $120 total. it came brand new in the mail two days later (i live in az it shipped from CA) but it got here fast and has my friends living in fear! lol jk

oh and it also can trim your rose bush if you have good aim!
