Jonathan from Airsoftology reviews the Echo 1 Red Star IGOR AEG.
In this review Jonathan’s looking at a hybrid rifle that walks the line between AEG, DMR and Sniper Rifle; The Echo 1 Red Star IGOR. But does it fill any of those roles effectively? Watch and decide for yourself.
The Echo 1 Red Star IGOR Full Metal AEG Airsoft Gun is a replica of the VSS Vintorez used by Russian Spetsnaz and Minister of Internal Affairs Troopers. This rear wired AEG has a full metal body with a 428mm inner barrel.
The side rail allows you to add aftermarket scopes for distance shooting and faster target acquisition. Front and rear Russian-style sling mounts allow for a solid 2 point sling system or a simple 1 point.
Once fully charged, the included battery will fire this gun at about 14 BB’s per second. Internally, this gun features a reinforced version 3 gearbox with 7mm bearings. A nylon piston with steel teeth increases the internal durability of this airsoft gun.
Steel gears and a mid-torque short type motor also adds to the internal durability. The AK-style hop up unit has a pre-installed Madbull Bucking for maximum accuracy.
