  1. I found another video which answers a few questions around the grip/battery. Auto-translate now available on this, so I watched it again although it was a lot harder to follow this time. As best I can tell - Handguard mounts the same way as the real one. Will work with standard nimh batteries (looks like 8.4v mini). Marui are releasing their own Lipo, which will work with this but won't be available for another 6 months or so. There's some sort of proprietary connector in place that the lipo will plug into (but the MP5 comes with a converter as standard so you can
  2. Yeah, there was something about the welding divots on the sling point just above the magwell, but I didn't really follow what he was saying.
  3. I already posted this elsewhere, so apologies if you've already seen (or indeed, had already watched the video) Just rewatching the Youtube video and there are translations available now (which weren't when I first watched it), which is worth a look if you're interested in that sort of thing. Here's my interpretation of YouTube's autotranslate. Original TM MP5 released in 1992 NGRS weighs 3.1kg, close to real weight (standard 1.9kg) Not sure on the frame, maybe die cast with some aluminium (trying to avoid front heavy) Furniture is all FRP Talks m
  4. Hopefully be an MP5 SD5 at some point too...
  5. It's a recoil MP5 A5 with built in mosfet, 3rd burst, new mags and you have to use the charging handle/hk slap when reloading. Looks like I better start saving...
  6. Either would be interesting. An NGRS MP5 would be great, just to have updated furniture and hop unit (with pixies in). Not sure where they'd put the recoil though. Cocking handle? Some sort of modified gearbox so you can fit it in the top part of the receiver? If it was in the stock that'd limit your model options, which seems less likely. On the other hand, a GBB MP5K could be hilariously good fun...
  7. Airsoft counts as "essential travel" right?

  8. Thanks for the suggestions, both glove wise and medical. I did actually do this and was told by my GP (who's generally pretty good) that this was just a thing that can happen after impacts like this - I was concerned about fractures. I should point out this just seems to be for impacts to the less padded bonier outside of the fingers, not the palm side (it also hasn't happened so far with impacts to other places). I'm guessing it's just unfortunate combination of location, distance (these have all been relatively close) and age catching up with me. "but these days I'm collecting scars that do
  9. Having taken one too many rounds to the fingers, I'm looking for options for a new pair of gloves. Currently I'm running a pair of Hatch Operator Hard Knuckle which have lasted me for a few years now and probably will last a few more. The issue I'm having is that I'm taking shots to the outside of the fingers that's giving bone bruising (hard lump bruises that take months to go - if they go). As such I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for something with a bit more padding. There are plenty that have knuckle protection but less that are specifically on the fingers.
  10. There are a few more things I could do to this (like removing the last of the paint from the charging handle, swapping the pistol grip, some slightly higher scope mounts and actually installing the front sight), but it's pretty much done.
  11. The LCT ones look good and it'll be interesting to see some of the reviews. I suspect if they branch out then MP5 is the next most likely candidate, but we can always hope for an HK53/33. It would at least get rid of one of the large worries which is the body snapping at the front tabs. At least with a G3 you can run a PDI internal reinforcement core. That said, one of the nice things about my HK53 is how light it is, which makes a welcome change after running heavier guns for a while. I also really like the look of a K, but I could see it being quite a challenge to make... Not m
  12. 7.62 is a lot easier. - See http://arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/194389-hk-picture-thread/?view=findpost&p=2695399 The large proportion of this build was spent getting the rear endplate to fit and then the stock attached to it. Really, it would have been a lot simpler just to pick up a CA33 rear stock and convert that. The downside of the relative rarity of these models (33/53) is the lack of spare or option parts, let alone cheap second hand spares. Such oddly designed guns (different receivers for the 33 and 53, different handguard mounting to every other MP5 out there,
  13. So, finally got this project finished. Far more work than I might have hoped for but I have learnt some things for next time(!).
