The GAT, or General Assault Tool, is the latest installment to Echo 1’s ever expanding line of high quality airsoft rifles. The hardworking R&D team at Echo 1 are avid players themselves, capable of recognizing the need for certain innovations and product upgrades. The General Assault Tool is constructed from a stamped steel upper receiver and barrel assembly alongside a durable polymer lower receiver resulting in a rugged, yet manageable, platform capable of withstanding harsh environments. An integrated foregrip offers the perfect level of SMG manipulation, and houses the battery that operates this rifle. Echo 1 makes sure you are ready for battle by including a mini 8.4v battery and standard wall charger with every package. The functional charging handle can lock back giving players access to the hop-up chamber to adjust for various BB weight and target range. Although the overall design of this rifle is small, it sports a full sized metal gearbox, capable of aftermarket upgrades to improve power or rate of fire. 8mm bearings and bushing combined with a steel gear set ensure smooth and reliable gear changes with less risk of wear & tear.
The GAT gearbox has many features that set itself apart from other SMGs in a similar price range including a reinforced gearbox shell, pre-installed Madbull bucking, nylon piston with full steel teeth, and a nylon ported piston head just to name a few. Although this rifle comes with a mini 8.4v battery, players can use a larger LiPO battery without fear of stressing the gearbox or other internals. Front and rear sling mounts are built-in to the top receiver allowing this SMG to be carried out of the way when not in use.Coming out of the box firing at a hot 350 FPS, you will have no problem reaching those long range targets, and will not need to make adjustments to your AEG to abide by arena regulations on maximum velocity. Echo 1 includes two 250rd magazines with this SMG to keep you in the fight longer and secure the win. Fixed front and rear sights make it quick and easy for players to accurately zero in their targets on the fly without the need for an additional optic accessory. Echo 1 has pulled all stops to provide enthusiasts with a badass SMG option, the General Assault Tool.
