no one has done a review on this so i decided i would.
ive had the gun about 2-3 weeks now and love it. it has a realistic look even being plastic.
it has a very nice weight to it with the battery in the stock.
one thing i didnt know before ordering it tho is that it takes a large type battery not a small.
but if you take off the stock by removing the rear pin, you can detach the small to large battery extension cord and plung in your mini's. i did this the week i waited to get my intellect 8.4v 4200mah.
another thing thats great about it is the barrel threads. it comes with built in counter clockwise threads which are great for a silencer or noveske. its also very easy to take apart. the thing i had the hardest time with was the selector switch removal and assembley. the mag is alittle wobbly but thats to be expected, as it happens in almost every gun. one last thing it the accuracy and blowback system. after ajusting the hop-up to your liking, its a very accurate gun. i run it with .2-.23 and find them the best to maintain accuracy and range. the blowback system isnt the greatest thing while firing bb's. but if you empty the gun and use your finger to plug the end of the barrel, the slide will fully "blowback" and return to its closed postion. the charging handle is very study as well and works great.
all in all its a great gun. its pretty much complete metal with an exception to the forgrip,stock,and pistol grip. the body is such a hard plastic and 'metal' like you wont even know the difference. ive only had one problem with it and i found out it was because of a broken battery. this is my first mp5 series gun and love it for what it is.
realistic feel and weight
takes small and large batterys
easy to dissassemble
easy to reassemble
crisp trigger pull on semi auto
kind of cheap feeling front sling swivel
kind of a let down on the blow back-not really what i expected
becareful with the selector disassembly and reassembly i almost broke mine
