The futuristic looking MTC (Modular Tactical Carbine) from ECHO 1 is probably one of the most intriguing assault rifles they have produced to date. Even though it looks like it blasted its way out of a sci-fi thriller, the MTC is actually based on their older SM series which has undergone some serious modifications.

If you hold your hand and squint really hard you can see that the heart of the rifle is still pretty much the same but everything around it has changed. At the front the MTC is equipped with a once piece CNC machined aluminum RAS which interlocks with the rifles polymer receiver with rock solid stability. The carry handle has been replaced with a low profile aluminum optics rail which features integrated iron sights. Its mag well has been changed out for one which accepts M4/M16 series magazines allowing for cross compatibility with one of the most popular magazines on the market. Although, if you wish you can replace the mag well with an SM series after minor modification. The stock is now a 6 position collapsible crane style which houses the rifles battery so there is no need for an external battery box or pouch. One thing which we will point out is although it appears to be capable of doing so, this stock does not fold. So do not try it!

Internally the rifle is very much the same as the old SM series as it features a full metal V3 gearbox outfitted with 8mm bearing bushings, steel gears and a metal spring guide with bearing. One thing which is different now is the design of the barrel and hop-up. On the MTC the hop-up chamber is actually pressed into the front of the gearbox shell making it much more solid and eliminates the lug failures of the older SM series rifles.

After you power it up and send some rounds downrange you will find the rifle performs quite smoothly and punches out shots at a respectable 370 fps. The hop-up bucking and nub combination which ECHO 1 has gone with is very aggressive so you would need to use BBs weighing between .28g and .3g or your shots will climb like a homesick angle. Being calibrated for these heavier rounds does however make the MTC quite good at long range. Fire off a burst and your rounds will carry out to 60 yards with a consistent grouping and with practice we were even able to pull off good shots from over 200 feet away.

True to its name, ECHO 1 MTC is a highly modular rifle capable of endless modifications. Aside from being compatible with the common M4/M16 series magazines you can also use buffer tube sling plates and aftermarket M4/M16 stocks not to mention it can be modified with SM series accessories as well. If you are a gearhead who loves to tinker with different loadouts and configurations, this is a dream come true!

    5 out of 5- What a gun

    Well I'll be honest... the first time I looked at this gun I said "What the heck has Echo 1 done with their guns?" A month later Christmas arrived and guess what came in the box. My Echo 1 MTC 2. I had my doubts about this gun and then when I got to shoot it...that was it, I love this gun!

    Firing Tests:
    The Echo 1 MTC 2 has a respectable FPS of 370 and the hop up is well designed and is VERY powerful. I was using .2 gram BBs and they were curving up on with the hop-up off. My suggestion is that you buy the heavier BB's and tune the hop up. I also used .23 gram BB's and that didn't make any difference. So pick up some heavier BBs.

    Recommended:
    The Echo 1 MTC 2 came with two hi-cap mags, a battery and a trickle charger. Keep the hi-caps but buy a couple mid-caps in case of hi-cap mag failure. GET A SMART CHARGER!!! All I can say there. Another thing you might want to look into is a grip and/or optics. The MTC 2 does have iron sights but they are not very good. I am using the UTG CQB Tactedge with a 6 inch tube. I like the sight alot; very accurate and good to go out of the box. The MTC also weighs in at 7lbs. Not much you say; believe me it can get heavy if you are in the middle of a battle.

    Overall: I really like this gun and would recommend it to anybody that is in need of a sturdy platform with lots of options to choose from there.

    Pros:
    Hi ROF
    Metal RIS
    Easy hop-up adjustment
    Reasonable Price
    Good FPS

    Cons:
    Mag a little Wobbly
    Magazine Release a little awkward (for me at least)
