Good, the only issue I see, is the G&G mags, if you can find some other manufacturer that makes mags besides G&G that would be good, stay away from G&G and CA mags if all possible.

ok thanks those mags seemed like the best because every review on that site aid that all the other mags had some kind of problem(missfeeds, mag woble,etc.)

EDIT:all the high cap mags on that site seem to have something bad about them so do you think that i should go with some mid caps?

High caps tend to have misfeeds, while midcaps feed correctly 99% of the time.


Get mid caps if you want, I put up with my CA M14 high cap and G&G M14 high cap, though they do misfeed sometimes, I just bang the mag with my fist gently and it will start feeding again.

So I say go with high caps, just remember to occasionally lube the feeding tube with silicone spray.

Please dont double post, it makes the forum look messy.

The specific battery pack you want is out of stock.

It should run your Echo 1 just fine, size wise, it should fit tightly, but thats good nonetheless.

Ok your only problem is that Universal Smart Charger.

It is a piece of crap.

On the mini battery connector, the polarities are reversed, so when you charge your nunchuck, it will completely fry your battery.

I recommend the Intellect Smart Charger, because I use it, it is cheaper, made by Intellect, a reputable manufacturer of high end batteries. Not made by some no name Chinese company.

While it doesn't charge as fast as the Chinese crap, it WILL NOT fry your battery!

It charges at 600MAH max, so you will be charging your battery for under 4 hours, which is pretty good.

Also, I wish I could convince you to get the G&G M4, but oh well, the Echo 1 M4 is still good.
