Echo1 G36C

This weapon is based off of the H&K G36, which is used by the German and Spanish militaries and law enforcement worldwide. It has a very sturdy plastic body and comes with metal upper and lower rails. The upper rail has standard iron sights and a carry handle. The charging handle factions so that you can adjust your hop-up.

The strong point of this gun is that it is very ergonomic. It fits very nicely in your hands and is 100% ambidextrous. The selector switch, charging handle and magazine release are all ambidextrous. So that makes this a great choice for lefties. This gun’s short size and ambidextrous abilities make this gun great for CQB and taking corners. Also, the stock can be folded to shorten the gun by about nine inches.

As far at the battery goes; it is not very hard to install but it is very small. This limits your gun’s life before you need to change batteries or charge. This gun has great internals but could benefit from a precision barrel and other small upgrades.
For this gun’s quality and features it should get a 5 out of 5, but its lack of accessories and external upgrades gives it a 4 out of 5.
