Rare collectors item that is hard to find. The Echo1 M134 Minigun (manufactured by CAW of Japan) promises to be a "new generation" minigun. Previous airsoft versions of the M134 were few and far between, so Echo1's marvellous Minigun is a welcome addition to the airsoft world. The spec sheet is quite an impressive array of numbers, basically telling us that the feint-hearted need not apply. Designed and built by CAW of Japan for ECHO1 guarantees quality.
For a start, the weight of the weapon is a wrist-snapping 16.8kg! The 12v battery that powers this minigun is the same as those used by motorcycles, and powers the multi-barrelled gun to spit out the BB's from the 1700 round mag, which is easily spent in no time at all (Manufacturer claims 6000 rounds per second)! The power of the Echo1 Minigun is quite impressive, with a performance of 400+fps. Check out the video below and you will see it in action; the noise of the barrels spinning and expelling those BB's are quite testing on the ears and is sure to be an intimidating weapon to be near (or in front of). As you can see in the video, the cyclic rate is quite impressive, spinning round at 3000 rpm. Note that this gun has an adjustable hop-up, unlike the Creation M134. The Echo1 M134 Minigun is quite a design masterpiece, which was developed by Mr. Hongo in Japan. Play the video to see it in action!
