Our take:  The Special Operations Branch (SOB) 1 by Echo1 is one of their newest M5 style AEGs that is compact with the power of a full-sized AEG rifle.  Fully equipped with a Version 2 gearbox, this low-profile SMG easily shoots between 390-400 FPS (w/ 0.20g BBs), delivers a high rate of fire and can be upgraded with Version 2 aftermarket parts for a truly customized AEG.  This SMG by Echo1 is perfect for all players who want power and range loaded into a compact, lightweight submachine gun.

The SOB 1, which Echo1 designed for both indoor and outdoor fields, is modern update of the M5 series of SMGs.  It features an integrated rail system for attaching tactical accessories, but unlike other rail equipped M5 style AEGs, the Echo1 SOB 1 is equipped with a long monolithic top rail that measures 14 inches long.  This makes it easy to attach an array of aftermarket sights and scopes, with ample space to adjust for eye relief.  This submachine gun is perfect for entering buildings and turning tight corners due to its ultra compact size, which can easily be adjusted thanks to its retractable crane stock, common among many M4 AEGs.  Another great feature that sets this submachine gun apart from other M5s is its straight magazine configuration.  The SOB 1 sports an enhanced tactical look that older versions lack and is an incredible SMG for any tactical loadout!

The Echo1 SOB 1 is geared for both left and right-handed players as it comes with an ambidextrous selector switch.  Additionally, this submachine gun also includes a rubberized buttplate for improved ergonomics and a swivel sling attachment below the stock.  And thanks to its full metal build — upper receiver, outer barrel, buffer tube and rails — this AEG is extremely durable and dependable for all airsoft players.  The NEW SOB 1 Submachine Gun by Echo1 is ready for you to field and comes complete with battery, charger and TWO high capacity magazines!

5 Echo1 Airsoft Full Metal SOB 1 Airsoft AEG Submachine Gun *****

"I got this gun and right out of the box it dominated. All i added was a fore grip and some iron sights and I was smoking my friends. It says it shoots 400 FPS, but when I went to Ballahack Airsoft in Virginia they made us chrono our guns, and mine chronoed at 415-430 FPS. I was shocked that it was that high, but I took it.......... AND STILL DOMINATED! IF your hesitating, don't, just get this gun. I truly can tell you that there is nothing wrong with it. But unless your a hip-fire person, like the other guys, I recommend getting some sort of sight."

Great Buy!

"I had a large order through Airsoft megastore, but the main event was this SOB 1! I must say that it was exactly what I was looking for! The full metal upper receiver not only adds a level of strength, but gives the gun a nice balanced weight. It shoots hard and extremely accurate. I put a red dot sight on it, and it works beautifully. And aftermarket sight is required. If you're interested in giving up accuracy for compactness, the SOB 2 is a more compact version with a shorter barrel. However, the SOB 1 is compact enough to still be good in close quarters, with a long enough barrel to be effective at long range. At a great price, this is the best Submachine gun in the market, and something I always want to take to battle with me!"

5 Echo1 Airsoft Full Metal SOB 1 Airsoft AEG Submachine Gun *****

"This gun is beast all the way around. It's rate of fire can easily keep enemies down and on the ground. I recommend you keep it semi automatic though to conserve your ammo. But if you have a fast trigger finger no problem. I play on field environments and even then it performs great. Where I really recommend it is at short range then I completely dominates the enemy it's high rate of fire and its comfortably level make it great a force to be trifled with. I strongly recommend you get some sights for this gun because it does not come with any at all. Also a extra mag if logical too. And I also urge you to get a mock suppressor of some sort to extend the range a little. All in all If your looking a gun that you can easily rush the enemy with as well as defending fortified positions this gun is for you."

The store is amazing. I have found there items that I could not find in other stores which makes it the best. I have made questions and inquires about products and the customer service has responded super fast with accurate answers. All my products have arrived in excellent conditions in spite of other stores. My last product came late because it was rescheduled but that was UPS fault I think. I would like to thank Matthew for his exceptional customer service. Whenever you need help, please try to contact him. My advice, buy in Airsoft Megastore, they have coupons and the widest variety of airsoft products. RandyLoy, USA
I ordered a gun sling a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, one of the clips broke. After a few email correspondings with a customer service representative named Jun (my emails did not show a last name), AMS sent me a replacement sling for free. I did not even have to send my clip back. AMS is a terrific store and I plan on doing more business with them. They were polite, efficient, and just a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Airsoft Megastore to anyone. mskanwischer, USA
Airsoft Megastore is The Best Airsoft Website Out There (I Think) and i Will Always Be Loyal to AMS and Order Almost All of my Gear From Them. The Customer Service is Also Amazing, Jun my Customer Service Representative Has Helped Me With Anything i Needed Help With, Especially My Order Problem (Had 2 Magazines Missing from Order) and Jun Helped Me With The Problem, and Now The Mags Have Been Shipped To Me. Thank You So Much AMS and Jun. Ethan1214, Saskatchewan, Canada
I love that Airsoft Megastore has videos of most any information you will need to learn and care for your products. I purchased an AEG for my son and in short order, unfortunately, it began grinding after brief use. I emailed for warranty repair with symptoms and with 24 hours (22 to be exact) I received an email explaining possible causes with a video like for tuning the gun. I had the gun working again within 15 minutes, avoiding returning the gun and the mess associated with returns\repairs. Excellence on Sean's part to help out a first time customer of theirs. Highly recommend. bucfanjeff, USA
Everything worked great, shipping was super fast. I am very pleased and won't hesitate to order through airsoft megastore again. rob_riley, USA
