WE MP5 GBB & MP5K GBB (APACHE SMG)

Recommended Posts

Listed at $289 USD at CRW Airsoft.

 

7500 TWD at KIC, aka $250 USD.

i'd probably pick it up from KIC, but they usually add about $20 when they do their conversion.

Not sure if it's a fixed amount of money or percentage, but yes they do add on a bit for international customers. I would expect them to ask 275 USD or there abouts.

looks like it may have some issues with cool down depending on how much bursting you do. but if someone makes an aluminum bolt kit, all should be well. the ROF would go up to a realistic amount as well.

The more I see of this, the more I may sell my Vector. Can't justify having two cqb gbb's. Just hope they release lower body kits (SEF type lower, just prefer that lower).

If the mags are reliable/leak free, that's not a bad price.

As long as they're fixable! WE mags tend to use pretty poor release valves, but thankfully they are easily fixed. Just have to hope it's the same with these :)

In that video, there's something off and I can't tell what. It might be the back of the MP5K, it looks like it moves or something try's to push out?

 

I could be hallucinating though.

Still cant get over those open mags.  Sure, it's fine for pistols when the channel is protected when inserted in the gun or mag pouches.  But whilst in the gun, all manner of could get in there.  No doubt after market proper shells will be made.

I can see your point about the open mag. But it hasn't been a problem with my Vector. Though, I'm not known for throwing my self on the ground (especially when you've got a bad back like me), during a game.

Look at the majority of all SMG GBBs on the market today. Which have closed front magazines? Answer, not very many. Why it's like that when the GBBR magazines are closed I have no idea. But it's not like this is an exception and a sensational headline news.

 

Also about the mags, I read on Arms-Cool that some guys MP5 magazine had leaks basically out of  the box.

 

Also, are the bottoms not pinned? That's a major friggen pain IMO :|

I guess I just consider what with the standard of GBBRs being enclosed, along with the VFC MP5, opening them up now is a backwards step.

I still dont see an issue with open front mags. I wish there was a way to check my ammo with my VFC. It would really come in handy during skirmishes. And I skirmish my Mp5 a lot.If its that big an issue for some people, couldnt they just put a strip of electrical tape over it?

Also, considering how nearly every SMG ive seen has an open slot mag, I think we can pretty safely say that dirt getting in is a non issue. Otherwise I dont know how my KWA MAC-11 has worked so well all this time, Or my KWC Uzi.

I like realism too but theres a point at which the functionality makes it desirable. Real Mp5 magazines have holes cut out in the back to count your rounds left (or at least all of mine do). To my knowledge, no one has ever complained of dirt getting in there.

 

Problem is, the BBs arent in the back on a GBB, so that would only be an aesthetic detail. On a real Mp5 I can tell how many rounds I have in the magazine. This is just a functional equivalent to something you can do on the real one.
