    AK2M4

    I've ordered from http://www.ak2m4.co.uk/ a few times and I'm very happy with their responsiveness. Everything has been received on time, and talking to the store's owner, he seems like a nice guy. Recently bought an item which had the wrong price listed, and was given £15 off the actual price. The store stocks a great selection of internal parts and a few externals accessories, including stuff you can't really find anywhere else in the UK such as ZCI and CORE parts. The store's only been open for a few months, I'd suggest taking a look. ZCI makes some of the best quality internal parts out there (including prometheus-quality steel barrels for a third the price, extremely high torque motors), even ignoring price, but very few stores in the UK stock any of their stuff at all.

    Well MP5 SD5

    The suppressor is actually functional, which is the pro (although a lot of noise comes from the gearbox stock). Similarly, it's iron sights' adjustability. I know that there are quite a few guns that don't have adjustable sights, especially flip-ups, so it's just something to note.

    Well MP5 SD5

    UPDATE: Okay, the hopup unit absolutely does not work for me. This isn't even close to the worst thing that you can get for £60, but you can get far better stuff if you spend more (of course). Whether or not the £60 saved is worth it to you is a personal decision. Pros: -very cheap -TM compatible v2 gearbox -Metal charging handle (hkslaphkslaphkslaphkslap) -sight adjustable for windage, 4 arpetures to choose from -included suppressor is somewhat functional (although most noise comes from the gearbox) Cons: -ineffective hopup -no rails -wobbly fire selector -handguard is a bit wobbly -pretty poor quality control

    Well MP5 SD5

    So, despite multiple people telling me to stay the hell away from this thing, I bought it: the Well Mp5 SD5. Unfortunately, I accidentally all external pictures of it, I'll put some up later on when I put it back together. Externals: Externally it's all quite glossy plastic other than the stock and grip, which have a nice matte finish. The mag release, trigger, and charging handle are all plastic. No RIS rails unfortunately. Pictures coming later when the gun is back together. Internals: "XYT" gears, plastic spring guide. The piston head and cylinder head have absolutely amazing compression, but it's let down by a crappy nozzle with no o-ring. One interesting thing is that the spring is really short- it doesn't even fling the spring guide (which is plastic, by the way) out the gearbox or anything.- Oh. ######. Well, it would've still been pretty short if it wasn't dead. Here's the hop-up unit with an aluminum barrel installed: Here's said unit next to the original brass barrel: It seems quite wobbly, but does work. May need some shims or something to keep it more tightly in place. Overall, I'd say that this gun is a good deal at £60.
