yeah, that will be a lot of money, I think you should just get a TM MP5A5 and upgrade the spring, that should be around the same cost, the TM is more accurate, and is better quality, not including less trigger-bullet hesitation (how long it takes to shoot after the trigger is pulled) with a new spring, it will shoot faster, dont worry about the battery, not enough space for a new one, you should stick with a 8.4 and go with a TM

I think its user preference, if you are not a hardcore airsofter then just upgrade your E1. If you are hardcore, then buy and upgrade a TM.

yeah they do make an A4, but I just like the adjustable stock, even though there is a little bit of wobble

I really don't recommend upgrading anything other than a tightbore anymore. The difference between the stock spring and say a M120 is really not much at all. Plus then you'll have to worry about working on gearboxes, which can be a pain and you can easily damage things just by opening it.

Upgrading a TM is also not a good idea because TM's are built to use what they have, so they last a very long time. The distance is probably even better than a stock echo 1 just because of it's hopup unit.

My recommendation is to keep the Echo 1, unless it's broken, or if you feel you like the TM better, go for it.

Well the only guns I reccoment upgrading
is TM because they are accualy built to use TM and Systema spring upgrades
and ECHO 1
because it is almost a clone of TM and not exactly the same, but the best MID END AEG

It depends on whether you are upgrading lightly, or replacing almost every thing. If you are just looking for more accuracy and range, a tight bore barrel is really worth while. If you are going to be spending $100 on upgrades, you may as well buy a G&G or something.

I recommend the G&G MP-5. I have one and it is superb. The rate of fire is awesome with just an 8.4v battery.

Here is my rate of fire video...the video quality is horrible for some reason but the sound quality is awesome.

If you have no money, and you are like doing a extreme makeover for AIRSOFT GUNS!?!?! it can end up being a little less to way more expensive than a G&G MP5

madbull makes good tight bores for about 30 bucks. Systema is the best way to go, but if you are wanting to save money, madbull is great.

You can also purchase a new hop up bucking

He doesn't need gears. Don't upgrade the internals until they break. Just buy the tight bore.

Tightbore, DEFIDENTLY GET THIS, Systema makes the top of the line tightbores, it is made so well, your bbs will go straight enough, you might as well put a scope on it! There is no way it will ruin your gun, or even jam it, the only thing it needs is constant cleaning, which is for most high quality tightbores, since it is easier to get stuff stuck inside there. And 35$ is a GREAT price

You have 80$, and also a working AEG.

My advice is to save the cash.

agreed, but the best chance for a good tightbore is the systema, with only $80 try saving, so you can either get more upgrades, or more guns
