Equipped with a side folding skeleton stock and more accessory rails than the Trans Siberian Railway, the RED STAR Covert is a rifle you could imagine being in a Kremlins elite arsenal. All we know is this full metal rifle from ECHO 1 kicks some serious borshch.

Weighing in at 7 lbs this rifle is pretty hefty yet is surprisingly well balance and comfortable to maneuver. The rifles build is very realistic with the only parts not made from metal being the pistol grip and the railed handguard. The upper rail is machined from a single piece of aluminum and is bolted securely to the rifles barrel making a perfect platform for a reflex or dot sight. The rifles receiver has also been fitted with a side rail mount which will accept AK optic mounts if you wish to equip you rifle with a larger scope or night vision.

This rifle has been configured with a blow back system so when the rifle is fired its bolt will recoil mimicking the action of the real rifle making it tremendously fun to shoot. The bolt is directly linked to the gearbox so please be sure that the bolt has room to move before you fire as if the bolt is blocked it can cause damage to the gearbox.

Punching out muzzle velocities surpassing 400 fps this sledgehammer has the power to cut through thick vegetation and underbrush like it wasn’t even there. Long range accuracy is equality as impressive with the ability to reach out to ranges of 180 feet or more thanks to its long 455mm inner barrel.

With superior build quality, solid performance and the added bonus of a blow back bolt, the RED STAR Covert is one mean machine.

Shown with but not included: Umarex Walther Competition II Sight and ECHO 1 Low Profile Foregrip.

Comes with: 8.4v 1200mah battery pack, 250 mah trickle charger and cleaning rod. Battery charge time: 4.8 hours

Please note: Take special care when installing the battery into this rifle to insure it does not rub against the bolt since it can interfere with the blow back. The wire which runs along the side of the battery should be on the opposite side from the bolt and at approximately the 7 o clock position. Also, when installing the receiver cover make sure the upper edge of the bolt is tucked inside of the cover for a proper fit.

    5 out of 5- This thing kciks ass

    After putting about 6000 rounds through this puppy I can safely say it is the most fun you can have with a non-lethal automatic weapon. It is very accurate and shreds targets at over 150 feet. I can not wait until I can shoot some moving targets. Thumbs up all around.

    5 out of 5- Incredible!!!!!!

    This gun has serious power!!!!!!
    lol made my friend say no to having a war after the first one we did.
    I recommend this gun to anyone who has some friends who can take an amount of pain. It's accurate for the beginners and fast enough for the pros.

    5 out of 5- Feel sorry for my opponents ;-)

    This gun kicks ass, my friends. Easy to mount stuff on and everything. The only problem I have is putting the mid cap mags in. High cap ones no problem. I love this gun. Very accurate. Looks great with scope and launcher.

    5 out of 5- hurts

    It takes a little breaking in when you get it, but it can get the job done.

    A few weeks ago, i was using it in a pro airsoft match and there was a guy on the other team that was cheating (cheating on our team is saying that you weren't hit after one shot) so my team leader told me to unload a 120 round clip on him. at about 130 feet, he got hit about 10 out of 10 rounds and just dropped to the ground crying like a baby. he wouldn't get up so we ran to him. he had about 10 welts, some bleeding, on his torso. it took about an hour for him to stop crying.

    Hits hard, accurate, and can make people cry, what's better than that.

    5 out of 5- You feel Russian when you pick this beast up

    I got this gun a little while ago and it is great! Every shot i take i hit the target, and with a high cap magazine i rarely reload. This gun performs great with .20 gram bbs and hits hard, accurate too. Yesterday me and my friends played a field battle out in the woods, and even with the snow the gun performed great and i hit my friend in the knuckles so much he was bleeding. The gun is also full metal, exept the rear pistol grip and the front handguard.

    Overall:

    Pros:
    Accurate
    Durable full metal desgin
    Battery life
    Good gun for either new comers or experinced players
    Looks and feels like the real thing

    Cons:
    Slight stock wiggle, but it's a folding stock
    My fire mode selector comes loose but i just tightned it up with a pair of pliers.

    Don't miss out on this great buy!! - OPTech

    5 out of 5- HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!

    This gun is really good for big games, like if you have a ton of friends over and you get really bored. I took down an entire team of my pro friends with this gun (which is why they all have them now). this is definitely a good buy.

    5 out of 5- The Complete Package

    When I opened this Gun I was truly and still am amazed and awed by the realistic feel of this gun. The all metal feel and weight were perfect. The shooting power is terrific. Echo 1 outdid themselves. This is by far the ultimate AEG in my book. I would recommend this gun to everyone. The Echo 1 Red Star Covert is my number #1 choice for any airsoft game.....woodland or CQB!!!!
