AR-57 Coming Out Soon – Licensed by AR Five Seven

Echo1 USA is soon to come out with the new AR-57. History on the AR-57 or AR Five-Seven is that it’s based on a real steel caliber conversion that changes the standard M4/AR15 from 5.56mm NATO to intermediate 5.7x28mm round and magazines. The AR-57 has the same great feel as an M4 but due to the smaller cartridge, it also offers extremely low recoil and high ammo capacity over the standard M4. The 5.7mm round has high lethality and armor defeating capability even up to 200 yards, making it a great personnel defense weapon.

The airsoft version faithfully recreates this gun in every detail, and will come fully licensed and engraved with AR Five Seven Trademarks. At its heart is the metal monolithic upper receiver which holds the 5.7mm style magazine.

The upper receiver has long continuous rails running along the sides and under the barrel. Its short overall length and collapsible stock make this a great CQB weapon. The AR-57 is a completely unique design that should stand out from the crowd of other M4s that are out on the market today.

Echo1 USA at AirSplat Appreciation Day 2013

Over 1,000 people gathered bright and early on Sunday May 20, 2013 for Airsplat’s Appreciation Day game. The event was hosted at Tac City Fullerton and featured vendors including Echo1USA. This event was to show loyal Airsplat customers gratitude for their patronage. It was free to play at Tac City all day with lines circling the building. Players also got to enjoy food, music, and raffle prizes to round out the festivities. They also got to interact with a lot of famous airsoft personalities and check out the latest products being shown off in the vendor area.

Echo1USA was there to show their support for AirSplat and interact with die hard Echo1 fans. It was at this event that Echo1USA decided to debut to the fans their latest product.

Out of the impressive lineup that Echo1 had on display, the one that got the most attention was the new AR-57.

AK Bolt and AR-57

Due out this summer (tentative), the Echo1 AR-57 is modeled after a real-steel firearm of the same namesake. The real-steel counterpart was created as a way to convert the popular M4/AR15 to use the powerful yet easy to control 5.7mm PDW cartridge.

Just like the real version, it feeds from the top of the gun. The magazine sits on the upper receiver and feeds down into the custom Hopup unit. Since the real AR-57 no longer feeds from the bottom mounted M4 magazine, the magwell functions as a chute or ejection port where the empty brass falls out as rounds are fired.

Real operators sometimes use hollowed out M4 magazines inserted in the lower magwell to act as a brass catcher. Though you could leave it empty, some players may opt to run a battery in the hollowed out magazine and have the look of a real operators.
