I never saw echo release this....

Did agi customly put them in? I highly doubt that, but how come echo has not advertised it?

No, all version three echo1 guns include metal bushings now.

There is only so much they could do before they would have to start raising prices.

I wound not mind a small increase in price for some more upgrades that would make the guns that much better.

Yea, Id much rather have reliability even if it ups the price a little. Seriously I think metal bushings and a metal spring guide are really important in a rifle, so echo should really put both in. Theres other stuff 2 but those are like reliability stapeles

If they keep packing stuff into their gearboxes, they are likely going to raise the price more and more until the point that you can get a ICS or G&G for the same price.

I dont think they would do that. The philosphy behind echo is to provide a good rifle for a lower price...if they uped their prices they would just be some other company. Look at what they have done with the mp5 ras...full metal (I dont care what kind, its better than plastic)...metal bushings...metal spring guide...a high rof motor...and a bunch of other upgrades I cant think of right now...all for under 200.

We are starting to drift off topic, so lets stop.

But I will say: Echo 1's philosophy is to rebrand ACMs, and sell them for more while claiming they have a warranty.

They want your money, all airsoft brands do.

Any high end can sell their guns for the same price as echo 1.

and Echo 1 can sell their guns for less than 60$, but they dont.

Oh yea I agree, I know that they are in the business of making money, and I understand jg is cheaper...and yeah we are getting off topic so I will get back on track:
Shorty (I know, I know its evil...just try not to freak out) says that the new V3 m4 comes with:

"The Version 3 ECHO 1 rifle has undergone further upgrades with the addition of a metal spring guide and metal bushings for increased durability. This added to the list of standard upgrades which include an M110 spring, steel gears, poly carbonate piston and 16 gauge wiring makes the Version 3 rifles among the best in their class."

Hm??? Can they lie or is it really true?

Yes, infact I emailed Echo 1 about it and they said the version 3 guns include metal bushings and a metal spring guide
