This beast of an assault rifle is the RED STAR AK-47 RIS from ECHO 1. If you are a fan of the AK-47 series then you would be crazy not to add it to your collection.

One unique thing about this rifle is how realistic it is. With a battery installed it has the same weight and feel of a real steel AK-47 with a synthetic stock. It has the same metal content as the real rifle so the receiver, barrel and every other part that would be metal on the real AK is metal on this rifle. All of the metal parts have been treated with a flat, gunmetal grey finish so now this rifle looks even more like the real one. The only non-metal parts are the stock, pistol grip, handguards and the removable folding vertical foregrip which are made from durable fiber composite.

Inside the rifle is a fully upgraded V3 gearbox that has a reinforced metal shell and can take Marui compatible parts. Upgrades include an high performance spring, steel gears, sector gear clip, steel 7mm bearing bushings, reinforced poly carbonate piston, ported poly carbonate piston head and 16 gauge wiring. This produces nearly 2 joules of power at the muzzle and gives the rifle an effective range approaching 200 feet. With this massive amount of power it is recommended that .25g or .28g BBs be used for best accuracy.

  • Comes with TWO 550rd Bulgarian style waffle magazines, folding vertical foregrip, 8.4v 1500mah battery and 250mah trickle charger. Charge time: 6 hrs

    5 out of 5- Insanity

    Seriously, this thing is insane! The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was the gun looked almost exactly like the real thing, if it weren't for the orange tip it could've fooled me. There were no blemishes, mold lines, etc.; nothing, it was in perfect condition.

    Plugged the charger in and sat down with the gun to look it over. It's nearly the same weight as the AK it's modeled after, again, barring the orange tip it would take incredibly close inspection to realize it's an airsoft (well... maybe looking at the barrel isn't incredibly close... but you get the idea...) Attached the tactical foregrip, it's a tad wobbly but only moves a few millimeters forward and back so it's really no big deal (perfectly usable and unnoticable on the field). Then, having read Shorty's review I pulled the strap out, and with little effort pulled it apart. It's a complete piece of crap, it's literally glued together... Not good... Fortunitly, after rumaging around for a bit I found a sewing machine and gave it a few lines of stitches, problem solved.

    Battery charged, I loaded a magazine up (well, sorta, manual is a bit weird, it will say to put EXACTLY 600 rounds in the magazine, no more, no less; of course, they give you a small box of BB's with the gun... 200 of them... ... ok...), real easy, even comes with a sturdy little plastic key to wind the thing with, a minute or so later and my 200 rounds were ready to go. Found a juice bottle, backed up about 100 ft. and fired my first shot, went WAY low, about 4 ft. or so... Decided maybe setting the site BEFORE shooting was a good idea, and this resulted in near perfect accuracy, nearly every BB hit the bottle. Set my hop up, shot low, shot high, 150 or so rounds later got it right (takes a bit of break-in), completely owned the bottle. (BB's stopped bouncing off and started going through.)

    Battery lasts for a pretty long time, 2-4 magazines depending on your shooting style, I'd still recommend picking up a spare 1800 (and a spare mag, gun only comes with one, even though it is a 600 round). That'll be more then enough for a good afternoon of airsoft.

    Haven't had a single problem with the gun yet and I gotta say, it was worth every cent. I can't claim to know too much at airsoft, I'm a bit new, but if your looking for a great starting gun that'll last you throughout your career I'm gonna have to say this is probably it.

    (I do apologize for the huge, scary wall of text. Hope I didn't blind anyone.)

    5 out of 5- Coolest AK-47 ever

    this is the coolest AK-47 that i've ever seen. right when i saw it i new that i had to buy it, within a week i ordered it. i have never regretted it since. this gun is really tactical, with the vertical hand grip and all the rails on it, this gun looks awesome.

    the vector arms AK is the best shooter around. its really fast, has high velociy, long range, high rate of fire (800rpm), and it has really great quality, there are a lot of metal internal parts and external parts. this gun will surely be the best gun out of everyone on your team.

    once i was in a war in the woods. i set up position behind a tree, put 2 mags next to me and put a 3rd in the gun. i waited for the other team to come by (3 opponents). surely enough they came directly in front of me at about 150 ft away. i switched the gun to full auto and carefully aimed at the front man. i fired about 10 round into his torso. he dropped to the ground i fired at the other 2. hit them both in their torsos as well. they both fell to the ground too. it was a great victory. and i never even had to use the 2 mags next to me.

    this gun is a must buy.

    if you have this gun during a war, it is a sure victory.

    i strongly urge everyone to buy this incredible gun.

    pros:
    really accurate
    extremely fast
    tactical
    long range
    intimidating
    a lot of detail to it
    there is a lot of metal parts
    really high quality

    cons:
    the only con is that it is a little heavy

    other than that i can't think of a single bad thing to say about this gun. this is the best AK-47 ever made. vector arms did a fantastc job making this gun, its a must buy.

    5 out of 5- Beast gun

    I've had this gun for a little under a week now, and I must say that it beats the he11 out of all my friends guns. I dialed in the sights (I bought 2 different ones) and the iron sights, and the gun has an extremely tight bb spray on fully automatic. My friend almost dropped it yesterday when I handed it to him - I failed to mention it weighed 8 lbs, and he tried it and was plinking down the targets before I had even loaded his glock. For the people too lazy to read this paragraph - I'll type up a list.

    ~~Pros~~
    --------
    =Extremely accurate
    =shoots through glass and cell phones (the junky kind)
    =Extremely realistic
    =high fps
    =realistic weight
    =free foregrip (regularly $20-$30)
    =Carbon fiber-like material used for grips & stock

    ~~Cons~~
    --------
    =Selector switch etches a line into the side of the gun (barely noticeable)
    =Difficult to remove battery from stock unless u pull wires
    ***SOLUTION = tape some elastic band around the battery & pull on that***
    =Vertical Foregrip wiggles about 3mm's side to side

    Overall - and excellent gun, will out due any other gun. Looks cool with a long sniper scope & is extremely accurate & powerful.

    A 5/5 and must buy.

    ~the power of the Gods command you~

    5 out of 5- ECHO 1 Vector Arms AK-47 RIS AEG Airsoft Rifle Full Metal

    Well considering it is all metal, this gun is cheap compared to the other all metal electric guns (except for M14 models)

    This gun has exceptional fps, most of the Electrics are in the 350fps range while this gun has 400fps. This is becuase of the upgraded spring, also don't forget the upgraded gear box.

    The ROF has nothing really exceptional about it compared to other guns on this site but it shoots 14 (13.33333 in reality) bb's per second so be sure to get lots of bb's with this purchase and an extra mag if you really want, don't think it is needed considering that it holds 600 bb's. But little something to think about: if you didn't have to wind up the mag then if you just fired the entire clip, it would take less than a minute to fire all 600 bb's in the clip.

    This gun has great detail and very intimidating!

    Also this has good range being able to hit ppl at around 200 ft.

    Also this is very good deal becuase it comes with the charger and the battery and charger which saves you an extra 45$ though if you by a larger more powerful battery you will get a longer battery life and it will kick you ROF up maybe to 820rpm.

    Also with this you should get some lube, its only 5$ and it will add atleast 50 fps to the gun (not that it needs it)

    So all in all, this gun is great!

    5 out of 5- Full Metal Echo1

    This gun is incredible,i have had it for about 6 days now and i find it to be of better quality than my classic army g36c. The accuracy is great it has a nice weight to it and the mag it comes with is great.The vertical folding foregrip is a little wobbly but it gives the AK a tactical look.The single fire is very responsive and accurate and the full auto is amazing. I have noticed when the hop-up is all the way up the bb's climb at a high arch but leaving it in the middle provides the flight bath of te bb with great reasults.
    AMAZING GUN,LOTS OF METAL,ACCURACY LIKE NO OTHER AND HIGH FPS.-whats not to love?

    5 out of 5- Oh my gosh.... WOW!!

    This gun.... This gun is so amazing, I don't even know what to say about it...
    So I'll start with the specs:

    _-=*Pros:*=-_

    \-Attractiveness: This thing is so beautiful, I literally cannot take my hands off of it!
    /-Detail: This thing looks so real. I can't tell the difference between the real one, and this. (besides the orange tip)
    \-Semi-auto/full-auto
    /-FPS: 400!!! That is amazing FPS out of the box! (.20g BB's [350 fps w/.25g BB's])
    \-Accuracy: I was hitting a Coca-Cola can from 75 feet away. (I was going full-auto, so I hit it 25/35. [OUT OF THE BOX!!! I usually set the hop-ups before I go target shooting... This didn't require any setting])
    /-Free forgrip: usually $20-$35 a piece..
    \-Weight: I don't know about you, but I love guns that weigh as much as the real thing...
    /-Metal: This thing is almost full metal..
    \-High-grade materials: Closly resembles carbon fiber. (I believe it's Nylon. Which is used on high-grade airsoft guns)
    /-Magazine: 600 rounds.


    =( Cons )=

    NONE!!!!

    To me, there are NO cons to this beautifully crafted gun.
    It's the most amazing gun I've ever had the plesant time of using. You'll enjoy every moment with this rifle.. It's a must buy!
