  1. I dont like quoting pictures, but I cannot shoot that! Saw parts from WE well over a year ago, and still pictures of a few parts is all I see. I didnt get any reply from them when I tried to email them, so as far as I am concerned this probably aint gonna happen. With regards to the Escort/YE MP5, the dimensions are all off, a big upset for me, more than the performance of the gun, although it seems to be pretty easy to slip the collar on the YE design. consistancy wise, yes it is better due to the design, so tuning for accuracy is more consistant. Recoil is better and it makes a bigger
  2. Well, I have been away for a while, and see my review is still going strong!! So, after over a year after writing my initial review do I still feel the same way about this gun? Well, there is still no sign of the WE MP5, so I guess we will probably never see that one, so that leaves no choice still if you want a gas MP5. I would like to mention that I also have an Escort MP5 and do not consider it anywhere near as good as this gbb. In fact, the Systema MP5 is the only model I have not owned (I like the MP5!) I do not currently use my vfc. The main reason for this is due to the ma
  3. The VFC G36 is now using GenII mags, I might still think about getting one, though reviews on them are pretty scarse. I know that they dont have as strong a recoil as the WE version, but I dont know how they handle the cold, something that the WE does amazingly well.
  4. Personally I would stick to the polymer ones, and the one that I installed is the one linked to earlier. I managed to test the gun, and it works fine again. I got no feed jams or feeding issues. I am starting to notice the inconsistancy of the hop a little more now as it is starting to bed in, so now is the time for me to start fiddling about with that, as I have said earlier that I wanted to give a chance to get some rounds through it and start to break in before I adjust it, mainly I think because it is such a pain to adjust! I am hoping that once the hop is adjusted properly then it m
  5. Well, thanks to that link Hitman I ordered that feed nozzle. It came with no instructions how to install it. Now, I cannot recall whether I mentioned this really annoying fact earlier on or not, but I have found this now to be the case in a few manuals lately, the MP9 being another that has this lack of info. There is no exploded diagram in the manual. Where do all the parts go? How do they go? And the most important thing with some bits, which way round do they go? So, I have the new part with no instructions of how to fit it, and sweet fa from the original instruction manual. This wa
  6. Ok, time for a quick update. I am no longer happy. Having played half a day this Sunday using this gun, I started experiencing some problems, a few minor, and one very very major issue. Now, I have maintained my gun, not mistreated it, and used it not overly heavily as I only have the three magazines, and using them over and over and over again then they do very soon start to show cooldown. This is fine, it is the same with most gas guns. However, this Sunday I was finiding that it was venting gas much more heavily, and I didnt think that it was overly cold. As a result the gun started j
  7. You just need to keep it clean. Clean it and it will work fine. Clean the shells, and clean the chamber, and most importantly clean the firing pin (the rod in the chamber) as if they gunk up with debris then the gun will fail to function. Also be careful for spent shells. They dont make the loudest bang in the world, which means you can fire them safely and indoors. They do however, really fling those cases, so if you are not careful you will end up with dents and chips in walls and even ceilings. That broken part should also be fairly easy to replace I would imagine. You might want to
  8. In answer to the above question, yes, you are still good to go. All that will be more tricky will be to release the catch when the bolt locks back, but not impossible. Just give the rest of the gun a good once over first to make sure that nothing else is damaged.
  9. Yes, the trades are a major issue for me too, as you are paying to have them all legit and licenced and yet they are not there. Having said that, the attention to the small details is amazing, such as the roller cams and clips etc. It is not perfect, but it will certainly take a lot of beating.
  10. For me it is still so far so good. I am even considering getting the G36 so that I can compare it to the WE G39, unless WE release thier MP5 for me to get first! If you want a gas MP5 then so far there is no doubt in my mind as to which one to buy, for all the reasons that I pointed out previously. The lack of bolt stop is an issue that when using the gun I find very frustrating. The umarex trades are also a little disappointing for me personally, but the attention to the tiny details like the rollers etc. is out of this world. I still havent messed with my hop yet, so I shall probably se
  11. That is the exact part that has broken on mine, looks exactly the same.
  12. A little heads up for you all about this gun. I have had one scince they first came out. It is really a very excellent gun and the quality is great, as many people have pointed out above. I am waiting for some more magazines to arrive, so I only have the one that came with the gun at the moment. Up until today I have had no problems with the gun. I was so impressed in fact with this gun that I ordered extra magazines and another one for those times when one pistol simply isnt enough. It really is that good. And for the price!!!! If it was twice the price then I would still consider it
  13. Part 3 Thank you BaBaBooey for the detailed description of how to take down the magazines to replace that follower, I am sure that many people will find that really helpful. I recieved my two extra magazines. Here is a picture of one in the box: So, nothing too impressive there really, but what would you expect? Open up the box and here is how the magazines that I recieved came packaged. As you can see, inside the plain box the magazine came sealed inside a plastic wrapper. Once I opened the wrapper and took the magazine out I was pleasantly surprised to see that the
  14. Part 2 Ok, so today I took my MP5 skirmishing to see how it performs. I made no midification to the gun prior to shooting it, so that I could see how it worked 'out of the box'. I did a chrono reading using green gas, and it was consistant, with a +or- 1>2 fps variant between shots, reading at 385fps over 5 shots. I forgot to take along some 134A gas to test it with that, so that was my bad, but at 385 it was a little lower than I have read elsewhere. Now, armed only with one 30 round magazine, I proceeded to go up against aegs quite happily, and can honestly say that I was ha
  15. PART 1 Ok, as nobody has yet taken the time to write anything about this gun, I figured that I would, now that mine has finally cleared Customs! Hopefully I will come across in the way that I intend to share my opinion, and not sound opinionated. So, to start with, here is the obligatory box picture. It is nothing that many people have not seen before, same design as the MP7 or G36 aegs that are also licensed by Umarex. I like it, I feel that it has a certain classiness about it that many other manufacturers miss out on, but at the end of the day, it is only a box. Mine was
  16. You beat me to it! www.tacticalquartermaster.co.uk , and if you cannot find those specific parts, then drop him an email stating what you are after, he will probably be able to get them for you. If you like or use WE guns, then this is one website to bookmark.
  17. If it worked then leave it alone. I have a habit of trying to improve things, and they end up in 1,000,000,000 pieces!
  18. I would blame it on the Gremlins myself. They are probably the same Gremlins that brought down our planes in the big one. WWII. They are still shipping them over here, they put them in the cars, they put them in the tv, They even have these teeny little Gremlins that go in the watches. So, I would blame the Gremlins.
  19. That is true, I forgot to mention that it does come as a complete fixed one piece unit, but my set up uses the two peice sectional method to allow me to change parts as required.
  20. LordElpus beat me to it! Yes, it is exactly that, and in case I confused you about all three being lined up, the carry handle has a built in magnifyer, I think it is about 3.5x but not sure, then the bolt on top part (clamps onto a standard rail, so you could probably just use this on its own if you wanted) has a red dot scope (non magnifying) and a laser! I personally if I am budget restricted on something like this, would go for the cheapest one that I can find that ticks most of my boxes, that way if it breaks I havent lost as much, but that is just me, cheap.
  21. I think that generally the cheap optics dont hold thier zero, mainly because they are cheap. I have the cheapest of the cheap dual optic on my G39 at the moment, and although I havent actually zeroed it as it is not too far out and all 3 optics line up perfectly, it has not adjusted itself at all, if that is any help. I know that the recoil of a gas airsoft gun is not the same as a real rifle, but if you use any real optics, cheap or not, they should in theory be designed to handle the recoil and shake thier insides to pieces. If it is adjustable zoom that you are after, have you conside
  22. Thanks for that Kruck, I understand exactly what you mean, wedge it in and churn the *fruitcage* out, basically! I may well have to invest in those valves. How is the performance of them, do they seal better? I have found a few of my fill valves have leaked slightly, although not anything that a bit of maintenance gas hasnt fixed apart from the one that I tried to tighten, and boy did that turn extremely well, right off! I did recently take them all out and silicone them just to be on the safe side. Oh well. Still a damn fine gun, even despite the few little niggly problems.
  23. Ok, @ Shabby, how dare you mention the superb gbb MP9 on a thread about the H&K G36, now you are going to annoy all of the G36 fanboys reading. (only kidding by the way ) You are very wrong about the dissasembly being like and aeg, it is closer to the real gun, part of the beauty about it. Be careful when tightening things, I just snapped a gas valve off on one of my mags (now I have no idea how to get the thing out!). Dont overtighten as it is still only made from poor quality metal (probably more of a legal point than a manufacturing one). It is very easy to do a basic strip dow
  24. The guide on page 29 is great because it shows you which way to turn the nut. Knowing that you are turning it the correct way help immensely as it is very tight indeed (mine even squished some of the metal I had to turn so hard) but a good fit with some pliers will do the job. I did at one point have a problem with my bolt not locking every time, so I stripped the lower group and lubed the spring part and catch, and worked it up and down by hand to get the lube right in there. No problem anymore. You do need to drop out the lower to get to the spring.
  25. As said above, most likely the grub screw holding the internal gubbings to the hop unit. Refer to page 29 of this thread for pictures and instructions how to get there and find it.
