Great boneyard buy to repair, part out to fix an existing gun, or to use as a realistic prop.
FPS Range: 360-390
(Write a review)
"I originally bought this for parts, but seeing as how it's in such good condition I might just downgrade the spring and use this at the local arena with a lower FPS limit.
Problems with mine when I received it:
1) Wiring was severed from the connector -- easy fix and not a big deal for me, as I immediately rewire all of my guns to Deans connectors anyway
2) Mag well is insanely tight -- I hope that it will wear down over time and be able to accept mags more easily. I'd rather not mess with it. Once I finagled a mag in there and got it to engage, the gun fired just like my brand new one.
3) Very light scratches on the upper receiver. Nothing that wouldn't end up there with normal use anyway.
In my opinion, this was steal for $150.
"Take note that boneyard guns are a total dice roll whether you are looking for parts or looking for bargain buys
Frankly reviews do not do much justice for boneyard products, but I did receive this gun in near-working condition.
On mine there are scratches all over the flash hider, but the threads are intact (thankfully), and the fire selector is misaligned. The trigger spring was also a bit deformed which contributed to a kind of broken safety, but otherwise I basically got a vfc mp5 for half the price
Also retractable stocks with VFC are proprietary to other AEG brands (you cannot fit a VFC mp5 retractable stock to a CYMA or G&G or TM, or vice versa), however, I think you can fit real-steel or GBB (i.e. WE tech, and VFC gbb) stocks to this aeg gun just fine VFC literally just took their GBB mp5 body and placed a gearbox into it.
Metal flash hiders from GBB brands should be able to fit into this VFC aeg
A rule of thumb is that this is a "high end" airsoft mp5, you can tell because they shape the upper receiver more accurately to real steel (the slots where the stock retracts into is shaped like a concave trapezoid rather than rectangular like TM/CYMA/G&G/JG receivers), so if you should be able to use some WE-Tech MP5 parts with VFC (within reason)
"So for a boneyard gun I'm disappointed, usually the chances of not being able to fix these are very low but occasionally with some like this VFC MP5 depending on the parts that need replaced you may just waste some money. For example mine was all good except for the unique to the gun trigger that is next to impossible to replace without another gun, I found one site with a replacement but it's out of stock and probably has been for sometime, I really had to dig to find this site anyway.
I emailed VFC to see about getting a replacement but it's been almost a month and no word back.
The body is solid and has realistic weight of an MP5 when all together.
The other thing that is very anouying about this particular MP5 is the flash hider, it's also unique only to the gun and without serious modification you can't just replace it with a metal one from one of the other companies. I am experimenting with a old hard to find CYMA flash hider I ordered from over seas. I may be able to make it work with some dermal work.
I give this boneyard buy a 2/5 only because the lack of replacement parts, and crazy flash hider design. Other than that i think I'll stick to boneyard M4s and AKs.
