What is this? A bullpup AK sniper platform? Yes that is what it is! It has been a while since JAG Precision and ECHO1 USA has released anything new on the market and this looks great for those players that want to stand out and use a Russian type platform.
First question we all ask: Can we upgrade it?
Answer is YES but it is already pre-upgraded to be ready for the field with 450fps out of the box so only a little is needed to max it out. I will link a gearbox video below for the RedStar CSR.

For the Gearbox video of the RedStar CSR that will be the same gearbox internals as the newer Red Star CSR-A Wyvernov this video from Echo1 TechSupport will help you out.
Being that this is not a crowd favorite due to it’s bullpup design and AK themed but for those looking for a compact sniper platform and to be different those players will definitely enjoy this rifle. That’s the best part about the Airsoft Community since everybody can do something that makes them happy and still be a part of something bigger. Now if you are thinking about getting into Airsoft and being that Sniper Role for the team check out this related topic and shootout from Airsoft GI that covers the 3 based snipers.

The AEG platform will still be the best for the beginning Airsoft Sniper so the Red Star CSR-A Wyvernov will be a good choice.
What do you think about this new rifle on the field?
