GHK G5 First Impressions.

Recommended Posts

Mornin All,

 

I was giving the G5 a bit of a clean this weekend and spotted a bit at the back of the lower receiver that has me confused. Id noticed before that after pushing out the pin the upper took a bit of effort to pull up and yesterday I spotted a metal spring clip that I cant see on the exploded diagram and also can t see on any pics i've seen of the internals.

I think it was originally sitting vertically but wherever it goes it either gets pushed down or pulled up (and eventually off) when I lift the upper off so ive currently put it horizontal on the top which also stops the difficulty in opening up.

 

Any ideas?

Would anyone be so kind as to measure their inner barrel? Its meant to be approx 200mm but would like an exact measurement so i can decide which replacement to get.

 

(forgot to mention I don't get mine back for a couple weeks still)

Damnit. I want the DMR version with silver bull barrel :|

 

Isn't what they released pretty much the same but without the bullburrel + a cheek riser (which I hadn't seen on the bull burrel mock-ups)? So you'd only need to get this kit + the barrel, which also gives you more options to get whatever outer you wanna. I'm planning on making a two tone, multi-receiver gun from this. I wonder if the two colors plus a silver bull barrel will be too much though...

Yeah that's the model I am talking about. Where can I get the parts needed to build that ? :o

 

The outer bull barrel specifically that is.

It's just a standard G5 with  just the handguard from the kit, THIS scope (or the RS one if you can afford it), and the bull barrel. I don't know what threading it is, but there's plenty of bull barrels out there to choose from. I'll be building my thing in a month or two, so I am yet to decide on the specific outer. Maybe something like THIS but longer?

Anybody already mounted the carbine kit and can review?

 

 

Mine's currently being thrown around the post office whilst they decide when they're going to send me the customs letter to pay. Will take pics and review when i get my hands on it! :)

As leaned on the WA nozzle, it likely has a pin in the back. Just got mine extended today. Pics to come ;)

 

 

Edit: btw, I replaced the HU-Rubber with a Marui one. This should be interesting....

We want photos!

 

Pantera,since I have the ratech too: May I ask you which bb you use?mine is shooting 0,28 overhopped in the air with zero hop up :(

Do I have to use 0,40 to have a straight range?

I use .30 most likeky your hop rubber is stuck just like mine. When I first used it all bbs were over hopping even at zero hop so when I opened it and looked at the rear the hop can still be seen at zero hop. So you need to remove the adjuster and reset it.

So I messaged Samoon about getting sub 350fps and they said they would make a 1J bolt for me :D getting them to test with the long barrel too.

That sounds very interesting, I reckon there could be a market for that.

Sorry about the delay and shoddy picture, my dSLR is packed away for my imminent move of house!

 

Fitted the kit with minimal trouble, aside from the fiddly-as-hell thread inserts falling out. A small bit of tape soon fixed that problem though. The kit itself is solid, with no creaks or wobbles if shaken. My only possible issue I might face is the small gap in the ris where the original bottom rail and the extended bottom rail meet, but fingers crossed it will be fine. I have an EGLM arriving early next week which should answer that question fairly rapidly.

 

The good news is the smaller barrel doesn't cause any problems inside the carbine kit, I half-expected it to hit the flash hider on the way out.

 

It feels so much more "finished" as a carbine length kit, there was definitely something missing in its tiny cqb form. You can get a proper grip and stabilize that kick with ease, with no loss of the fun.

 

If GHK make this 1J bolt and it chronos under 350fps with the longer barrel, I will have my dream gun!
