It has been a long time since the first rumors started circulating through the airsoft community about a new AK series machine gun from ECHO 1. Well, the wait is over and we must say it was all worth it. Standing at three and a half feet tall the ECHO 1 RED STAR LMG is an amazing example of airsoft engineering at its best.

The LMG is constructed out of metal and real wood giving it a solid and extremely realistic feel. It weighs nearly ten pounds yet is well balance and surprisingly easy fire from the shoulder. For a support type weapon it is quite manageable even if you have to sprint with it. This gun is built like a tank too with the receiver stamped from steel just like the real thing and those rivets you seen are not fake. The wood which the stock and handguards are carved out of is very high quality and looks as though they will weather quite nicely along with the finish of the metal. Amazing detail can be found in places which you normally would not think of such as how the piston on the bolt carrier looks just like the real thing or how the windage adjustment knob on the rear sight locks into place. Overall the realistic appearance of this gun is top notch both on the exterior and under its skin. Special features include a side mount which will accept an AK style optics mount, 14mm CCW threaded metal flash hider, folding steel bi-pod and a rear sight which is click adjustable for windage and elevation.

ECHO 1 has used a traditional Version 3 gearbox in the LMG so it is compatible with most aftermarket upgrades for those gearboxes. However, the gearbox comes pretty well stocked with an impressive selection of internals which include steel gears running on 7mm bearing bushings, polycarb piston with ported polycarb piston head, high performance spring, steel spring guide with bearing and a high torque motor. At the muzzle this produces 425 fps with a .2g and belts out 15 shots in just one second using a 9.6v battery which is housed in the stock. The LMG is fitted with a 500mm barrel that is mated to a metal hop-up system. This gives the gun impressive accuracy and the capability to outrange most stock AEGs. Using Bioval .27g BBs we were destroying a traditional torso sized target from 200 feet away with each shot landing in a deadly tight group. Now, the inner barrel does not go the full length of the 640mm outer barrel so if you felt the need to fit the LMG with a longer barrel that is possible to do. The LMG comes with an extended 850 round high capacity magazine and is fully compatible with other AK series TM compatible AEG magazines.

Considering the money you pay and seeing what you get for it we feel that ECHO 1 is getting the short end of the deal here. The value of the RED STAR LMG greatly surpasses its respectable price tag. If you are a fan of AK rifles this is a must have for your collection. And if you are not a fan of the AK, this one will change your mind.

Comes with: 9.6v 1200mah battery pack, 250 mah trickle charger and cleaning rod. Battery charge time: 4.8 hours

(Shown with but not included: UTG AK Series Dual Rail Optics Mount, UTG TACTEDGE 1X25 CQB 6 Inch Commando Red/Green Dot Sight.)

    5 out of 5- Best AK Support Weapon on the market

    OK, first of all this gun is made of STEEL. Not pot metal or some other cheap metal, but STEEL. The build quality on this gun is exquisite. It is as solid as a rock. The wood furniture is some of the nicest I have ever seen, and the finish is beautiful. Externally, this gun is amazing. Internally, it is beastly. It performs like a work-horse. I have used this gun in some games, and it performs wonderfully. I do own this gun and there is NO WAY you can fit a large type battery in it. It doesn't even fit a small type battery, at least a 9.6v, maybe an 8.4, but I've never tried. It fits PEQ style batteries. It uses a small connector, and the battery it comes with is a 9.6v PEQ. I have a 10.8v PEQ battery in mine and it fits no problem. The ROF with a 10.8v is pretty awesome, considering that it shoots around 450 fps stock. This gun is significantly lighter than other SAW-class weapons like M249s and M60s, which makes it easier to use as an assault type weapon. Overall, awesome gun.

    5 out of 5- Heavenly

    Granted the gun is of heavier weight, consider this to be an option for a good automatic sniper. With a longer inner barrel, a scope, and low profile ak mags you can be watching and picking off the op-for and have the advantage of full auto fire so if you were to miss the first shot, the next 20 in that burst sure wouldn't. If you were to find yourself beginning to get overrun and out numbered, drop the short mag and load it with a hi cap, dig in, and show that you mean business.
    I do not own this weapon, but being an experienced tactician and a field commander, using every advantage possible out of your weapon and field position based on your load out is the best means of aggressive, game winning, playing and this gun fits a good multi-role bill

    -standard factory loaded
    -high ROF
    -very mobile LMG
    -AK body kits that replace the wood for polymers and railed hand guards are compatible, because this is in fact, a normal ak with some beef. (could take the weight off too)
    -14mm ccw muzzle, consider a tracer to unleash a stream of insanity, or a mock suppressor to even further increase inner barrel length

    -assaulting can be difficult in close to mid ranges(consider aggressive defense)
    -inner barrel length compared to outer barrel does concern me (again, fix it)
    -high ROF (liked by most, not so much by me, think about it, winding mags after -each firefight, but again, never a problem)
    -battery size (could be fixed with a different stock)

    all in all it's a great weapon, good project gun, not going to regret buying this when i do, and i'm sure you won't either.

    4 out of 5- great heavy machine gun for the price..................

    Before i start the actual review i would like everyone know that i don't actually own this gun but i have used my friends for a couple of days when we have had events. to the review!!!!

    First i would like to start this review with the quality of this great replica weapon. I took a long inspection of this gun when i first got this gun in my hands and this is what i saw.... I found that the metal that the gun is made of is not the cheap metal that you see on cheaper aegs but the metal that this gun is made of will last you a long time and it will not be the part of the gun that will break on you. Also the metal is stamped and is put together by rivets which will hold the gun in one piece very well. The wood is also made of great quality and is attached to the receiver very well so you will not need to tighten it every battle.

    The features of this gun are very well thought out and make the gun the way it is. The stock is incredible for storing a large battery so you can lay out on your friends all day knowing that you will not have to worry about your battery. I also love that this gun is a heavy gun and makes you get into the part of support gun. I played mobile support during most of the games but you could also play as a defender. at 900rpm you can put some fear into the the people that you are fighting against, also the fps is great for a support gun so you can let them still feel that you shot them at the full range of the gun.

    Construction quality
    metal and wood
    great feel for support gun
    heavy ( could be a con for some)
    accessory rail

    price and weight

    that is all,
