    Tomorrow I will buy one of these listed guns. I play CQB at a limit of 330 FPS with .20 gram BBs. I will need to downgrade my spring on all these models. I want to make sure that I will not have to cut and repair any parts just to reach the gearbox. I will get the guy that has the most votes or the best reasons to buy it.

    Easy answer, the g&p. G&p's are 10 times better than any echo 1.

    Well since I'm your only vote G&P wins. The echo 1s are just rebranded and aren't really able to run with a G&P. I have no experience with any of them but from what other people have said G&P over Echo1. Externals: G&P Internals:G&P Stock performance:G&P. Echo1 just isn't in the same performance league as a G&P.

    Edit: aww I wasn't the only vote...sniped..

    I have to say G&P as well.. The only reason to get the SOB over the G&P would be for the looks.(IMO) If you don't fancy the G&P looks, but prefer the SOB looks, get the SOB and perform a few upgrades to make it field-able at your CQC arena. (If it isn't already within FPS limits)

    Will the G&P need any future upgrades?

    Everything will need future upgrades, but a G&P will be your best bet. Only part that would really need to be replaced over time is the piston, other than that you're good unless you want to upgrade further.

    Any gun could use upgrades. But the g&p will not need them. The echo 1's will need more upgrades.

    Edit: sniped

    OP: this is correct. Maybe the motor too... I'v heard some bad things about their stock motor... I may be wrong though.

    Ehh, it depends, I still use my stock motor and it runs decently, but anything more than an M120 spring and it would probabley kill itself. It gives good stock RPS though, 21-22 on a 9.6v. Idk about you, OP, but I'm more of a semi auto kind of guy, so it doesn't effect me very much.

    I can't find any disassembly videos. If I do get the G&P, how do I disassembly it to get to the gearbox?

    It should be the same as any other AR. Try searching 'G&P M4 disassembly' or the like.

    Uhh I belive its like any version 2 gearbox. If you mean the gun its self just Google g&p m4 dissasebly because all of there m4 model should ( I'm not positive) dissasemble the same.

    Edit: I'm sick of getting sniped.

    No. If I can't get 20% off then I have to get the Echo 1 SOB because I only have 470 dollars to spend. (470 = chest rig, BDU, Mags, Charger,Battery,Spring downgrade, attachments, Then gun it self.)
