The Barrett REC7, more commonly known as the M468, was designed to answer the need for a compact assault rifle which had more knockdown power than the existing M4 without sacrificing long range accuracy. It was created around the 6.8x43mm Remington SPC round, the first AR style rifle to ever be offered in this caliber. The 6.8mm had performance similar to the 5.56x45mm NATO round used in the M4 but because it was a heavier bullet it would hit its target with 1.5 times the kinetic energy making it 60% more lethal than the 5.56mm.

You wonít be shooting through car doors with this airsoft replica however being capable of hurtling a .2g BB downrange at 415 fps it certainly isnít lacking power. The REC7 is equipped with a metal Version 2 gearbox that has been decked out with steel gears, metal bushings, high performance spring, polycarbonate piston, ported polycarbonate piston head, polished cylinder and a E1 high torque motor. It features a 363mm inner barrel which has been mated to a mad bull hop up bucking giving it superior long range accuracy.

This is a fully licensed model of the REC7 so you will find its receiver bares the Barrett trademark and authentic markings. It utilizes a free floating barrel design with an integrated rail system to which you can attach a wide range of available accessories. While we were in the midst playing around with this rifle we found that the front section of the outer barrel unthreads right where the RIS ends revealing a 14mm CCW threaded tip. Attaching a mock silencers covers up the exposed inner barrel and gives a cool integral suppressor like appearance.

For those of you looking to mount a red dot sight or scope youíll be happy to know that both the front and rear sights can be folded down flat for a clear scope picture or can simply be removed. The REC7 features a special shortened full stock which is 2.5 inches shorter than the standard A2 stock. This allows for improved close quarters maneuverability as well as being a better fit if you are wearing body armor, a bulky LBV or OTV vest. The battery is housed inside of the stock which can accept a wide range of battery packs. You also get a quick disconnect sling swivel which can be connected to either the left or right hand side of rifles stock by simply pushing it into the open socket. Perfect for use with a one piece or wolf sling!

Metal parts include the barrel, RIS, magazine, magazine catch, trigger, selector switch, sling swivel, sling swivel socket, rear sling mount and butt plate.

Comes with: 8.4v 1500mah battery and 300mah trickle charger. Battery charge time: 5 hours

    5 out of 5- I Was Astonished

    When I first opened the box I thought it would be good for mostly closer quarters. However, I went in my backyard and set up a soda can 50 feet away. I put it on semi-auto and this baby ripped through the can on every shot. I was blown away on how powerful this baby was. I chronoed the gun and it came in at around 420 FPS!!! The next day I was in a big war (War Story Below)

    War story
    ........
    ........
    I was with my team's sniper and I was providing cover for him. We were playing in a big forest and we hadn't seen an enemy in a long time. I stayed behind the tree so the enemy didn't know I was there. The enemy charged my sniper and before he even got a chance to shoot, I had put three BB's into his chest. A little later on another enemy came up. I let my sniper take the shot but he couldn't hit him. So I flicked the fire selector to semi and took him out with a three round burst and every shot hit.That shows how sweet this gun really is.

    5 out of 5- ECHO1 plus steroids!!!

    This is what happens if you take an ECHO1 and give it performance enhancing drugs. It is probably the best ECHO1 gun in the company's history. There is finally an AEG that is worth more than it costs, and this is it. A must have for any intermediate to hardcore airsoft player.

    5 out of 5- one word........PWNAGE

    I bought this gun from a local retailer about a month ago and it is by far my favorite gun i own. I carry this around and sometimes when we play really long games, I'll put my M324 on my back with a 4x32 Mil-Dot on it and i dominate the field. When i put on my leafy camo with this and just crawl around in the weeds...i own all. My friends have some good AEGs but none come close to mine.

    WAR STORY:
    the game was CQB in a large basement(when i say large i mean huge!) 8 vs 8. The other team had 2 Mac 11's, 1 P90, 2 GBB Desert Eagles. 1 CO2 Uzi, 1 MP5K, and a CA M4. My team had me with my ECHO 1 Barrett REC7, 2 CO2 Uzi's, 1 STAG ARMS M-16, 1 P90, a guy with duel GBB M9's, and 2 revolvers.

    We started on opposite sides and as soon as we started i took off to get behind a crate in the center. some how i managed to make it. the guy with the P90 on my team got out as soon as we started. I popped up and unloaded through a cardboard box and took out 1 with a mini uzi. 7 vs 7 now. When i was down taking cover i saw 2 of my teammates get out. the one with duel M9's and STAG M-16. 5 vs 7. I rushed forward and took cover behind a wood crate. On the way i took out the guy with the P90. 5 vs 6. 2 more of my teammates got out, both of the guys with revolvers. 3 vs 6. it was just me with my E1 and both of CO2 uzi's. I signaled for both of them to flank on the left. While rushing up one got out. 2 vs 6. I took off to the right. we had them pinned down. he managed to take out 2 before he got out. 1 vs 4 when i was peeking out around the side i didn't see one of there guys flank me. I took out one and the guy that flanked got me in the back. We didn't win but i sure did pwn :) Please rate Helpful

    4 out of 5- It's a good gun

    The echo 1 berret rec 7 is the second berret airsoft gun, the first being the 2,000 dollar VFC M82a1. First off, the gun itself looks really sexy and tactical with the free float rails and flip-up sights. The main body of the gun and the stock is ABS plastic but it still feels really nice and sturdy, like most echo 1s. The entire rail system is made out of very high quality metal but you will need some rail covers because it feels pretty sharp. A nice feature that the barrel has is that you can unscrew it in 2 places - at the flash hider and at the middle of the barrel.

    Performance:
    with .25s the gun maintains a pretty stable accuracy and has a pretty good range. The fps with .2s is more like 370 - 380, not 415 but is still pretty good. The rpm is 875 at my best guess but, if you get a bigger battery it will definitely be improved. The performance is a lot like the stag arms m4 but is still a little better.

    Now some bad stuff(not many)
    The rail system on the gun is a little wobbly
    The rails on the body of the gun are not the best plastic
    Hop up is a little weird

    The one main problem is that after every shot you hear a very strange spring noise which does not sound too good and it drives my friend crazy when he bought it.

    Altogether it is a good gun and I would definitely get it if you want to have a more unique gun.

    5 out of 5- Nice gun

    This gun is really good and accurate. ...This gun really disappointed me when i fired it for the first time because it makes a really gay spring noise after every shot. It happens with every Barret. my friend's makes the noise and mine makes the noise. The battery that they give you is really good and the rate of fire on this thing is pretty good. The power obviously doesn't make it a cqb gun - more like a sniper but it is pretty versatile. It definitely isn't worth the money and the noise it makes is really gay, but i gave it 5 stars because it is still a good gun. Just spend your money wisely. Look at others before you look at this.

    Pros:
    ROF
    fps
    nice rails
    sturdy

    Cons:
    Makes annoying noise from spring
    rails are a little off
    very aggressive hop up (Beware!!!!)

    Please rate.

    5 out of 5- niiiicccceeeee

    alright I'm gonna be honest with you, i don't have this gun but my cousin does and I've used it a couple times. it is sweet but the only thing i didn't like was the plastic on it, even though there's a lot of metal and the plastic is some of the best plastic you can get. i just think if you're gonna pay 230 bucks the gun should be all metal but it's still pretty good. but the 415 fps and 180 feet make up for it and not to mention 850 rpm! this gun is beast! I've been doing some research on this gun and how it works and it's insane. and then there's the shortened stock that holds a bigger battery than putting the battery in the fore arm and you get more battery time which is nice. but it's also good cuz the stock is shortened so it's not as big as those other stocks. but let's get to the pros and cons.

    PROS-
    415 fps
    180 feet
    850 rpm
    shortened stock
    nice size
    almost as good as the m324 sniper

    CONS-
    plastic but it's still good. you should definitely buy it


    sorry for the long review

    5 out of 5- BARRETT ROCKS!

    THIS RIFLE IS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD - THE FRONT SIGHT IS LIKE THE AK-47. THIS IS GREAT WITH ACCURACY. GREAT METAL PARTS. THIS IS THE GUN YOU NEED TO GET NOW. BUT THE REAL MASTER MIND BEHIND THIS IS RONNIE BARRETT. HE LIVES IN MY HOME TOWN OF MERFRESBORO,TN. I GOT TO MEET THE MAN AND GET MY PICTURE TAKEN WITH THE BARRETT 50.CAL SNIPER RIFLE AND THE REC7 6.8 BUT ENOUGH OF THIS, GET THIS RIFLE YOU WILL LOVE IT.

    5 out of 5- THIS GUN IS BEAST!!!

    this gun is so amazzziiinng!

    accuracy is 10/10.

    looks 11/10

    fps 9/10

    long battery life

    great rate of fire

    easy to use

    kicks A$$

    most m4's/ m15's etc have a high rate of fire but low fps. this gun with a 20g bb has 380-390 even 400 fps! plus you can adjust the hop-up so even more accurate. and for the $$$$$$ is good for what it can do. easy to customize. lots of metal parts and a lot of rails to put scopes etc.

    over all 10/10

    GET THIS GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    this gun is freakin amazing! i just got mine today & i love it! You can practically snipe with it in semi at 415 fps. it's really accurate too! But if you're looking for the all around good gun, i'd get this 1. for the price, you can't beat it
