Pyramyd Air introducing an Airsoft Replica of Heckler & Koch G36

Pyramyd Air, a self described “mall” of all things airsoft, is now offering the eagerly awaiting airsoft community the Echo 1 SM-C Version 3 electric airsoft rifle, a less than lethal compact variant of the intimidating Heckler & Koch G36 currently seeing active use by German armed forces.  Equipped with a generously sized 8.4V 1100 mAh NiHM battery pack (included in the package along with charger and a cleaning rod) the Echo 1 promises to bring uninterrupted and dependable firepower to your next hot and heavy capture the flag session.

The design is simple and practical for combat (especially that nice tight, abbreviated barrel), the Echo 1 sports a 470 round magazine dispensed in semi and full automatic modes of fire just like it’s evil twin.  The manufacturers push this gun as a must have for close quarters combat situations though it still fires at healthy velocities (around 360 fps if you’re running good quality .20 grain BBs). The gun uses a picatinny rail to mount scopes and flashlights, an adjustable hop-up unit should give you a better grasp on where it’s shooting and a folding stock with tactical gun sling attachments makes it a comfortable carrying option in the field.
