Our take: The Special Operations Branch (SOB) 2 SMG AEG by Echo1 is part of their new line of M5 style AEGs that are relatively compact yet pack enough power to contend with full sized AEGs. Fully equipped with a Version 3 gearbox, this low-profile SMG easily shoots between 340-350 FPS (w/ 0.20g BBs), yields tight grouping and delivers a high rate of fire well suited for CQB engagements. This SMG by Echo1 is perfect for all players who want power and performance loaded into a compact, lightweight submachine gun.
The SOB 2, which Echo1 designed for close quarters combat, is a modern variant of an M5. It features an integrated rail system for attaching tactical accessories, but unlike other M5 style AEGs with railed handguards, the Echo1 SOB 2 is equipped with a long monolithic top rail that measures 11 inches long. This makes it easy to attach an array of aftermarket sights and scopes. 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 M4 style LE stock. Another great feature that sets this SMG apart from other M5s is its straight magazine, similar to a real steel .45 caliber magazine. The SOB 2 sports an enhanced tactical look that older versions lack and is an incredible SMG for any tactical loadout!
The Echo1 SOB 2 is ideal for both left and right-handed players as it comes with an ambidextrous selector switch and magazine release lever. 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 2 Submachine Gun by Echo1 is ready for you to field and comes complete with battery, charger and TWO high capacity magazines!
