I picked this Mp5 over others for the strength of the materials used. This thing is built like a tonka toy and weighs more than my scar-L from the sheer amount of metal used. Take down and maintenance is a breeze with the 2 pins removed you can take this apart very quickly and easily. It is smaller than I expected, which may be a plus if you are looking for a good mobile run-and-gun weapon. The accuracy is about what you'd expect from something w/ that short a barrel but the ROF takes over where the accuracy fails :-D
only one major con I can think of (thats what I was warned about from previous reviews) is THE HOP-UP SCREW. It comes loose enough to be bounced around and probably wouldnt hold its hop-up position without some attention. I took mine apart when I got it to check on this screw and it was loose as everyone said. Quick tightening and its fixed completely. No biggie but I would HIGHLY reccomend anyone that buys this guy to be prepared to check this screw themselves.
Overall a very good (and fun) purchase that I feel will outlast most of the cheaper Mp5s available. Great starter gun or for anyone looking for an upgrade ready AEG at a mid price range
SOLID. Very durable, great finish and body work detail, solid mechbox with great ROF even with an 8.4
lots of metal parts. The butt stock feels like you could run over it with a car or perhaps club someone over the head with it after you've shot your entire midcap out in about 8 seconds, which btw I'd buy lots of mid caps for this thing because it will occasionally shoot faster than a highcap can feed it.
Heavy, (with large battery type) Hop-up screw WILL need tightening, rather small for someone with large hands
MAG brand cheap plastic mid caps dont quite fit. (oh well)
