First off I am a big Echo1 fan and thats all I've bought so far. There guns are great for there price. They will last a really long time if you treat them right and take care of them. for example my first airsoft gun was an original Echo1 M16 I've had it for over 6 years and its only had a hop-up bucking upgrade and the stock is taped up because "I" dropped it. So if your just starting to get into airsoft I would highly recommend an Echo1 over JG and all those other "starter" companies.

Echo 1 rebrands JG, raises the price, and does not add anything useful or improve anything.

I've dropped my e1 ak74u a total of 4 times, twice on cement and twice in the outdoors/dirt because I trip alot :oops: But even with falling and dropping my gun that many times, the only damage that I have caused is the cocking lever that reveals the hop up broke and fell off. After each time I've dropped it I've opened the gun up and checked to make sure no internals have broke. So off of that I would say that they are good starters and can definitly take a beating

Nope, there is no difference between the E1 and the OEM guns I've worked on.

As for durability, my friend ran over his Cyma AK with a car, and it still performs well.

I always thought the CYMAs were durable, then I got my dboys and sat there grinning for like two minutes when I saw the reinforced STEEL body.
