    I have this problem that I'm sure what to do I find these guns on megastore and other places they say that there made by ams utg and others I don't know much about these gun brands and I don't know if they are a bad deal or if they have a bad internal and external quality.

    Dude....................why do you make these threads.....AMS DOESN'T MAKE GUNS, AND FROM ALL THE GUN BRAND QUESTIONS YOU ASK, YOU OUGHT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THEM THAN ANYONE ON THE FORUM.

    ALSO Unless you link to gun in question, we can't help.

    If I'm not mistaken AMS is just what airsoft megastore calls the guns they add accessories to. Most likely it was a JG m16 and they added a barrel extension and a rail.

    That makes sense I thought that ams was a major company because I thought I saw there guns sold some where else. What about utg?

    Echo 1 guns have JG gearboxes. Like since I cracked mine in half I opened it up after it was useless and looked on evike.com and saw that ALL the parts in the gearbox were JG the motor and gearbox shell said echo 1

    Not true for mine. Or the one I HAD, more specifically.

    Seems that you are saying all the internals is has are JG. As an example instead of the E1 having JG gears, it had XYT gears.

    Echo1 guns are essentially upgraded JG's, CYMA's, and in my case KS'. My P90 was a KS rebrand, with metal bearings, metal bearing spring guide, m110, aluminum piston head, and a Madbull blue bucking. My had nice shimming out of the box, a little wobbly but not bad.

    Echo1 isn't just a flat out rebrand, they put upgrades into their guns...

    The UTG one looks pretty good, I didn't realise that they made AEGs. It looks solid externally and the RPM is pretty good. I have a UTG shotgun which I love and its put together quite well for a spring gun. The AMS gun looks good but AMS exaggerates things and I question a lot of their products. Also I heard a rumor a while ago that AMS was swapping out parts in some of their guns for crappier parts that look the same and have the same specs but are cheaper and won't be nearly as durable (I'm not sure how accurate that statement is I heard it from the owner of my local hobby shop)
