What the hell? There isnt a single correct part, 'cept for the body and grip: wrong stock, wrong handguard, wrong barrel, wrong sights, .... and the markings are hideous (as are the real ones). They just took different chinese accesories that have been on the market for quite a tome now, slapped them together and got Barrett to allow them to use their name.

Wow. I opened this thread thinking I may need to get another AR.... But alas, I was quite let down by the appalling rendition.

too late to edit, and only just realised.

what in god's name is a zombat? :blink:

 

Best not to ask, but... They are spoken of in the Necrowobicon. They lay unliving, unsleeping, in their burrows beneath the Australian continent, waiting for the time when the stars are right, and they can arise... to feed on humanity!

Does anyone recognize the gas block/front sight? Is it a Barret Proprietary piece? That's the only thing I can't source. It looks like a cross between the PWS Piston System and the YHM Front Flip Sight Tower.

 

I can see Echo1 struggling to source the SIR system and the gas block. But the fact that they couldn't get either the barrel or the stock right is pretty pathetic (especially the stock). I'm not a huge fan of those trademarks... but if you black out some of the lower nomenclature markings, it could be passable.

 

Hypothetically, you could take Echo1's REC-7, ditch the front end and the stock... replace the stock with a buffer tube + LEO collapsible stock... replace the front end with a A.R.M.S. #58M-CV Mid-length S.I.R. System + a Madbull Dissipator 16 inch Outer Barrel. The only thing that's an uncertainty is the gas block/front sight. I guess I can use a YHM Front Flip Sight Tower for the time being or wait for someone to make a replica of the PWS Piston System...

Hmmm a swordfish style front for the m4 from echo1. I wonder if they would sell the "ZOMBAT STRYKER M4 FLASH HIDER" separate. I would kinda be interested if they did.

I am so dissapointed. The REC-7 is merely a remarked M-16. Wrong gas block. They could get away with the wrong RAS and stock, but the lack of gas block/piston is a non-seller. Oh well, at least I can save my money now.

Please don't quote pics. And quoting the rest of his post was unnecessary too. It just wastes thread space and is pretty redundant. Unless it really needs to be quoted... just chime in with your thoughts. We all know what the topic is about afterall.

 

You could probably get this to work and give you a reasonably close facsimile to a REC7

Good find. That's similar. Had I not seen that the sight folds backwards instead of forwards (like the Hk416), I would have said it was very passable. On the plus side, looking over at Barrett's site and at the REC-7 PDF manual, it appears that the REC-7 can also come with a PWS Piston type system instead of the gas block / front sight combo.

 

From Barrett's sight:

However... if using the HK416 sight block you kept the sight deployed, I think it'd be good enough to pass for the REC-7.

The Zombat Stryker (Zombat? Muppetry) would look much better if it was based on a LR300 with an M203 mounted on it. If I can figure out how to convert my GR300L to prove that, I will.

Yeah, you can definetally make Echo1's REC7 look more like a REC7. No doubt about that one. (Too bad VFC discontinued their M468 kit, as it would greatly help those without it.)

 

However, it's a plastic body. I wouldn't invest much in it for this reason alone.

 

Still kinda' want one anyway, though, heh.

(Speaking of which, I asked Echo1 for a review sample. They politely turned me down. [My 468 will be miles better, anyway, hehe. XD])

ill continue to stick with G&P, the perfect airsoft company

 

HAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!

 

Stop it, it hurts! HAAAHAHAHA!

Im usually a fan of stubbies but that Zombat is hideous. The fore-end looks so out of place and it doesnt look as if the rails even align.

 

---

As for the packaging...who cares what the hell the box looks like? It could have pics of doggie poo all over it...its whats inside that I care about.

 

---

Now I'm going to go laugh some more about the G&P comment.

 

---

After maybe one more pause.

 

What the heck is it with the BARRETT on the receiver of the 'REC7'? Its like having a gun with 'UBER TACTICAL MILSIM - THIS GUN GIVES ME A HUGE PENIS' inscribed upon it. A. just saying so doesnt make it true and B. it doesnt give you a bigger penis...it makes you LOOK like penis.

Right, more laughing methinx.

 

:D

Guzzi... you're simply going to have to live with the fact that not everyone shares your hatred for G&P's products.

vic: i always wanted one but this simply isnt it. its like ordering a 1972 Dodge Charger and getting a 1998 Mustang; cool but definately NOT it.

and guzzi: my G&Ps have been through everything that one could throw at a rifle. mud, rain, snow, sand. theyve been smashed, beaten, thrown, dragged. and they are still STOCK, with no repairs, and shooting 360-380.

all this and their designs are PERFECT SPOT ON ACCURATE.

so... yeah. they own my heart

Joe: Yeah, this is very true. It really looks nothing like a REC7, sans the Barrett logos. -_-

 

MadBull was working on a M468. They had the trademarks down, and were working on the SIR. Apparaently, this didn't happen as planned, so they went with the RA XCR.

 

Like I said, though, I'll probably pick one up to use as a loaner. I might add a couple things to it, to make it look more REC7-ish (LE stock [or in my case, a Magpul M93], shorter RAS [LaRue replica, perhaps], and a PRI style flip up front sight), but as I said, the plastic body is a huge turn off, when it comes to expensive accessories/modification.

 

Meh.
