Certainly a unique variation on the plethora of M4 & M16 rifles available on the market.  I think it's pretty obvious who this rifle is aimed at.  Yep, if you like Vietnam-era Airsoft guns, chances are, you're at least moderately giddy about the release of Echo1's new Vietnam-era AEG.

If you're still interested at this point, best thing to do is to take the jump to see the rest of the photos and get all the specs on the new Echo1 SOG-68...

Here is what Echo1 has to say about their newest addition:
"The Echo1 SOG-68 is a Vietnam based carbine to bring a new take on the everyday M4 and M16 that you see on the field. The SOG-68 uses a brand new body and furniture to make a new airsoft gun for the market that will be loved by the re enactors and collectors. The gun has a solid fps of 380 out of the box and is using our tried and true Stag Arms and Troy version 2 gearbox that is 8mm steel bearing and steel gears. The SOG-68 comes with a battery and charger to get you started and two high capacity mags. The 8.4v stock battery is great to get you started but if you want to use a lipo battery you can and bump the rate of fire up to 18 bbs per second. The stock polycarb can take the lipo since the second tooth is removed and the pickup tooth is re inforced to prevent any damage. Overall the SOG-68 is a compact gun that is built up and ready for any game you go and will get you through the fight."

What's interesting about this Airsoft rifle is the presence of the fixed, yet adjustable stock.  Look closely at the photos above and below.

I'm guessing that lever is to retract or collapse the stock.

One feature Echo1 did not include in their description is the presence of a Madbull Bucking in the hop-up assembly.  Most of the later Echo1 guns come pre-upgraded with Madbull buckings, along with other key internal parts reinforcement.

Adjustable rear sight atop a fixed carry handle, something you don't see too often these days.  Most carry handles are easily removable.
