GHK G5 Airsoft Hard Kick Gas Blowback GBB Rifle - Black

21 Customer Reviews

by Walter S. on 02/16/2017

After a while of playing with the g5, my 5-star rating stands!
Only had one problem with the gun: The stock hopup kind of crumbled under propane. It would not do this with green gas, but I decided that I wanted I metal hopup anyway.
The GBL unit works great.

FPS before was about 310 FPS with .25

After 225 mm 6.01 barrel install and GBL hopup I get 350FPS with .25

"One word: WOW!
Pros n' cons:

-40rd magazines last longer than you think indoors
-cheap (not quality, but price wise. This is because coupons can be used!)
-Stock range + Accuracy rivals my TM aug HC
-Takes AEG barrels and Buckings, as well as nubs (flat/R hop, anyone?)
-Kits available
-Zero cooldown on a mag in full auto
-good ROF
-semi is crisp
-Super comfy with AFG

-HK slaps will break the charging handle
-Not much rail space on the sides
-Receiver cracks? (I believe the Gen 2 fixed this, and I have not had this issue.)
-Took a week to get to my house
-No, it is NOT the scorpion EVO. People ask and it can be annoying.

Verdict: Buy it :D

"Great GBBR. Has a very nice kick and is very light (without the magazine. That's where all the weight is.) The magazines are great and have a nice cool down rate. You can fire a magazine on full auto no problem. Gas consumption is pretty good. I usually go through 2-3 mags full. Here's my pros and cons list:


Great kick
Good mag cool down rate
Sound of the bolt
They also send you a FREE metal flash hider.


Magazines are a PAIN to reload with provided speed loader
Speed loader cracked
Mag is a bit too heavy
Mag feels different putting gas in (just for me not sure about others)

"BEST GBBR FOR THE MONEY EVER!!! A hard kicking gbbr for under 300? F*#k yes!
Great construction and ergonomics. As the shortest configuration it is absolutely blast to shoot and recoils harder than an LM4, BY FAR!!! weighs less than the magazine as a pdw and the 2 extension kits bumps the fps to godly level. With a simple wheel hop up unit that surrounds the barrel it allows very consistence hop up and with stock bucking and barrel it reached out through thick brushes and made contact with someone with only their head exposed at 40 yards so no need for a tbb or new bucking to be competitive. Magazines are by far the best I have ever used, very minimal cool down and affects from weather.

Magazines are a bit expensive but won't give out on you unless you fail to maintain them properly, ~38-39 rounds will keep a smile on your face while surpressing even p* noobs.

*As long as you shoulder the gun and do not fold the stock while shooting this gun will keep going until you decide to stop, and even then with the crack in the lower it will still keep going. absolute workhorse. replacement parts are hard to come by but there are licensed dealers in canada (wish EVIKE would carry more parts) that has replacement parts if you need it.

**This gun and even the GHK M4 was meant for hardcore milsim that wants the feel and realism out of airsoft (outside of recoil from a Daytona) and is a great addition for any gbbr master race.

"First GBBR, so far, extremely happy.

1. Excellent gas efficiency
2. Sturdy magazines
3. Very customizable
4. Incredible trigger
5. Very sturdy rifle
1. Charging handle is pretty flimsy
2. Magazines are ridiculously over priced, like all GBBR magazines (biggest reason I haven't bought one sooner)

Over all, If you are looking for an excellent GBBR (and can stomach the magazines being a 1/5th of the cost) this is the one to pick.

"This gbbr is beautiful! Bought it before I got out for summer break and used it over my summer and this thing is a beast!

-HARD crisp kick
-Loud (especially when you have an amp on it)
-Strong build
-Easy to open up and do maintenance on it
-Very uncommon on fields so you'll be recognized

"These GHK products are simply fantastic. The G5 is perhaps the best one yet. Gas efficiency, build quality and in the case of the G5, price are unbeatable. A small, light weight, efficient and great customization platform.
by Brad M. on 03/06/2015
"This gun is amazing! After using it in a few skirmishes it has held up nicely

No stock wobble, rail wobble, etc
Easy to perform maintenance
Shoots straight and hard
Unbelievable gas efficiency
Offers customization option with DMR and carbine kit

Hop is a pain to adjust
Mags are expensive
You don't have it yet

Buy this!

"This gun is amazing! It is the most fun gun to shoot with the kick! It has so much kick it makes my replica EOTech shake off the rails! The first time I used it this guy saw it and wanted to play the next game with me because it is so AWESOME!

-amazing kick
-polymer which keeps it light weight
-you will fell like a badass when using it

-magazines are very heavy but it makes the gun a good weight
-so much kick it knocks my holographic sight off, but I just tape it on.
-magazines are expensive, but overall it is ok

Over all, with the cons, I still love the gun. I put magpuk furniture on it too

"I have used this gun for two months now. I have taken it out on multiple ops and it has performed perfectly. It is a gas blow back, so you will need to give it a little more TLC than a AEG but this gun has worked perfect. It really shines in the CQB settings. It kicks really hard and feels really good in your hand.

I would strongly encourage anyone to take a hard look at this gun.
by Brenden E. on 01/20/2014
"Very satisfied with the gun. The metal bolt moving around in the polymer body provides existential kick back when compared to most gbbr of its size. I play field with the 12'' carbine kit on it and it performs very well. It is nice of GHK to provide after market parts for there guns that way you know you are going to get the same build quality to expect from them. I do recommend that you purchase the steel charging handle (can be found on evike) because it is a key part of the weapon necessary for function. Overall its a great gun.

One down side is all the "codsofters" mistaking this for the Scorpion Evo 3

"this is an amazing gun! i got the last one (sorry all of you looking to get it) i highly recommend this rifle to anyone looking to get a GBBR that is extremely light, has badass hard kick recoil, and is so loud you couldn't believe it was CQB friendly. Plus its not like every other M4 out there.

It does have its share of problems that aren't so hard or expensive to fix.
I actually bought one and took it home and while test firing and trying to zero in the sights i noticed that it was misfeeding every shot. Apparently there is a little rubber o-ring on the bolt that acts as a buffer so the bolt doesn't smash into a little seal in the inner barrel. if you fire on full auto for a bit it falls off and the bolt totally destroys that little plastic seal causing it to miss fire and need to be replaced.

What i did is go down to a hardware store and buy an HNBR o-ring kit. what works best is a 1/4"x27/64"x5/64 o-ring. get that and save you some time and money and replace the original one and you got yourself a kick ass little gun.

i just field tested it today and damn i felt like the coolest guy at the prom. Everyone was asking to try it out and those who i graced with it are probably ordering one right now. so here's some pro's and con's

pro's: hard kick, lightweight, loud and proud, sexy, CQB friendly

con's: that o-ring problem but now that i told you about it you can go and fix it or whatever! also the stock mag it came with leaks if i release all the gas and leave it overnight... but if i fill it up and leave it the leak tends to dissipate... i don't get it but it happened to 2 mags already so there's that

"Just got this gun and i'd have to say I'm impressed. The polymer body is really sturdy and its texture feels great. Also, its not heavy. the included magazine is super high quality and the bolt function is very crisp. No wobble at all, even in the folding stock. there's a speed loader included with a lip for feeding WA type magazines like the one it comes with. the only downside is the spare mags aren't cheap. Overall, it's the best gbb rifle i've seen if you can afford the spare magazines.
by Shane M. on 04/06/2016
"Absolutely amazing gbbr. Great price point, great quality. A few mods are very recommended.
1. The mags need some sanding on the polymer injection points as the mags will get stuck in the magwell otherwise.
2. Get the Hephaestus aluminum charging handle if you want to HK slap it. The stock polymer one will snap if you are not careful.
Other than that everything is solid. The stock has a tiny bit of wobble but that's what allows it to be folded into the catch. Irons are dead on out of the box. Accuracy is amazing for such a short barrel, hand size group at 40yds with .28s but drops off quickly after that, hard to hit a man size target at 50 yds.

"Just got this and the carbine kit and it is fantastic. Installing the kit was easy to do thanks to the construction of the gun and the polymer feels light but not like a somewhat better quality plastic so much as an actual polymer. The default stock is also really nice and the fact that the gun also already comes with an m4 buffer tube to put m4 stocks on is really nice! Even better is the efficiency of the gas system. I can charge these mags for only 8 seconds and they can empty an entire mag. However, this gun has a few MINOR cons.

-This might be up to opinion, but the default iron sights are a bit small for a peephole sight and I changed the rear sight out.

-The magazines are VERY stiff to load and as such they require a few loads to loosen the spring.

-Also, the mags have a slightly larger lip so the adapter that comes with it to fit the lip of the magazine for speed loaders is the only one I can find that fits, so DONT lose it!.

-On top of this, because of the stiffness of the mags, you need to put some force onto the mags to not have a speed loader pop back out when pushing the plunger in to load BB's. It is a bit more tedious, but I find hand loading to be a bit more consistent although when you get to about 24 BB's the spring is a bit to tight to hand feed anymore. Get some more mags to compensate I guess.

Apart from this, great gun. If you want a good gas blowback, this is the way to go.
