At a glance, the Echo 316M looks very similar to our standard Echo 316. Both rifles are basic, carbine AR-15 rifles, but the Echo 316M differs in barrel twist rate and accessories.
The Echo 316M has a CMV (chrome moly vanadium) 1X8 twist barrel; this twist rate is favored by many AR-15 enthusiasts as it provides accuracy with the greatest variety of 5.56X45 NATO and .223 Remington bullet weights. Typically, barrels with a faster twist rate (1X7) offer better accuracy with heavier grain weight bullets, while lower grain weight bullets (those in the 35-55 grain category) perform better with a slower (1X9) twist rate. The 1X8 twist in the Echo 316M rifle is a great option for providing accuracy with the most wide range of bullet weights in this caliber. Unlike the standard Echo 316, this model has a mid-weight profile under the handguards to keep the rifle light and well balanced.
The Echo 316M also comes with a Samson flip up rear sight, a 30 round Magpul PMAG, chamber flag, and gun lock...everything you need to immediately begin enjoying this new AR-15 rifle
