(Write a review) "Got myself one of these, without a doubt the best MP5 on the market as of now.
Overall external feel of the gun is amazing, nothing rattles, everything stays in place.
Battery space is kinda cramped, I was able to fit a 3 cell 11.1 in the handguard tho.
Shooting 370 fps out of the box for me.
Internally it's pretty decent.
-Avalon QCS gearbox
O-ring nozzle, measured it at 18.96mm with my calipers, so pretty much 19mm
-red piston w/7 metal teeth
-crappy tin foil-like cylinder
-plastic cylinder head
-Proprietary hop up, similar to an AK hop up, nicely crowned brass inner barrel
-crappy vfc black motor, not their neo magnet motor
-vfc tappet plate, surprisingly hasn't broken on me yet.
Disassembly is the same as the previous VFC MP5s that had the burst fire selector switch, that being said getting the wiring back to the handguard is easily the worst part about taking the gun apart. "Put 1000 rounds through this AEG over the weekend. Didn't have a single issue. Great balance and build.
Chronographed at 330fps with .25bbs
Very good precision and accuracy.
Nice rate of fire and trigger response.
Fantastic field ready AEG right out of the box.
My only issue is the battery compartment in the handgaurd. It takes some time messing around with wiring and battery placement. I recommend butterfly lipo sticks. I managed to fit a 1200mah 11.1v elite force butterfly lipo battery without crushing it. Elite force reps told me the MP5 is lipo safe and can handle 11.1v 20c batteries. "So to start off this thing is awesome. The range with .28 bbs is extremely good for such a short barrel and the accuracy is good enough for airsoft. The weight and feel of the gun is very realistic. CYMA metal magazines fit and feed perfectly albeit slightly tighter than the stock hi cap. Trigger response is great on an 11.1 tenergy valor battery and although the battery space is small I have actually gotten a 9.6 nunchuck in there.
On to the cons, having the battery in the handguard means that the wires must pass through an EXTREMELY small hole at the front of the receiver. It takes some serious patience to get them through the first couple times. There's also almost no room for the wires to slide beside the gearbox as it is so its easy to think it's together only to find that you can't seat the magazine anymore because the wires are sitting in the magwell. Due to this horrible design element (although there probably isn't another way) the wires will suffer some damage to the insulation when you take the receivers apart. If you try to re shrink them its almost always too big to fit out of the way of the mag well. Liquid wire repair will be your friend if you decide to do something as simple as change the barrel.
Now this con that is completely irrelevant on the A4 version, which is rear wired. I chose the A5 because I'm using it as a sniper secondary and wanted the smaller profile when not in use. The only other con that I can really speak to is that the rear sight is not an actual HK style sight. Meaning you cannot set elevation and then choose your aperture. If you don't know what I mean look up "mp5 rear sight tool" on YouTube. There's a tool you can insert into a real sight which unlocks the drum and allows you to raise or lower the sight and then lock that position while you can then choose which aperture you want. I got around this by simply installing a red dot but it would have been nice to be able to do both.
Those 2 design flaws/choices force me to give 4 stars instead of 5. All in all I love it and am totally pleased so far. Read More Reviews Write a Review
