MP5's are fine.
Range is more dependent on hop-up and BB weight/quality than anything else, and with with a tightbore the grouping is fine. It's no SR-25, but an MP5 is an SMG, not a rifle.
As someone said, move up if you need to. Bring your target into the effective range of the gun.

Um.. no. That's not even a "beginning" gun. You can't even game with that. Please do not give stupid, inaccurate advice.
