I have not been playing that long. I would say 6 months by now. But I was addicted by day 1. And slowly I'm building my Echo into a scary machine of death and destruction. It's been a tough year financially unfortunately. All I've been able to do is add a motorized box mag from A&K. A good buy. The wiring was crap but easy to replace by hand if you're savvy with a soldering gun. Next tax season I want to upgrade it's guts. So long as I can keep the cost down then I may add a grenade launcher. Woo Hoo Oh Boy am I ready to see what it looks like. The weight will be ridiculous. I don't suppose any one knows a good way to distribute that kind of load so my shoulders aren't burning at the end of the day?
