So with GHK G5 in my hands its time for a quick first impressions. This will be a bit of a wall of text as my camera was not paying ball, nor do I own a photo studio like just about everyone on the Arms-Cool forums. So in the box you receive the G5 itself, a magazine, M4 stock adaptor, speed loader and manual. First thing you will notice with the G5 is its weight or utter lack of it. Due to the nearly all plastic construction it weighs a mere 1453g on its own, it honestly feels like a large pistol due to this. It feels very sturdy, nothing creaks or wobbles. The stock is rock solid both folded and extended. The plastic itself feels very close to what Magpul parts are made of, if not exactly the same. The handgrip is similar to an M4 style except more of a 'box', still fairly comfortable to hold though. The fire selector is stiff but clicks into semi and full quite nicely, safe feels oddly sloppy but it does its job. Which brings me to the trigger, unlike all the WE GBBR's I've used over the years the G5 has no definitive 'break' point. It feels very vague and almost like an AEG trigger. ?Not much to say about the charging handle apart from I wouldn't recommend HK slapping it, a good hit may well break it off. YMMV. The hop-up is accessible from the right side (or left if you change the charging handle over) however you will need a tool to move it, no room for fingers. Im unsure what the internals are made of, possibly zinc or aluminium but certainly not steel. The Bolt and hammer both have fairly thick mold lines along them, although this shouldn't cause a problem you may wish to polish the bolt off a little. The nozzle has a double O-Ring at the back which I found pleasantly surprising, should help efficiency nicely. The magazine is very P-mag-alike as many of you have seen, very sturdy construction and so far none of the 6 mags I own leak a single bit. The GHK manual suggests you do not fill these for more than 5 seconds as it can cause problems in auto. Although I didn't experience this it does cause your FPS to rise a fair amount and cause some inconsistency. The springs out of the box are VERY stiff. The mag is said to hold 38 rounds but I can only get 30 rounds in mine with a bit of a struggle. Im going to leave them loaded overnight and see if this helps any. For this reason, I would also recommend you load your G5 as if it were an MP5. (lock the bolt back) Otherwise you may damage your nozzle. The mag fully loaded and gassed weighs 604g. (30rds of 0.3g ammo) So to the more important part, shooting. It chrono's at 330 in 18c temps using 0.2g bb's and is very consistent between shots, surprisingly so for a GBBR. The GHK G5 kicks like nothing else I have fired before, it delivers a seriously strong jolt to your shoulder. You might actually have to control your automatic fire with this one. Its also seriously loud, bound to make any indoor CQB player think twice before coming near you. Accuracy using 0.3g bb's is fairly good but I wont be able to test this correctly until I've skirmished it tomorrow. Thats it for now, overall Im quite impressed with this very small feather weight rifle. My skirmish tomorrow will reveal any problems no doubt. Commence pic dump of what few images I did manage, any questions fire away!
