I have the WGC customs MP5 A3 which already comes with a reinforced loading muzzle,

VFC Tactical light handguard

And I got this from Ehobby and downed the power to about 310FPS.

Had ONE of the mags leaking but fixed it with a new o-ring.

Shoots awesome!

I have heard of some problems with some VFC MP5s where after several rounds, the gas from the magazine will spew out of the gun through the barrel. An example is in this video I have found.

(Airsoft) VFC MP5SD3 - YouTube

What would be the solution to this? My MP5 SD6 does that however my MP5 A4 works fine. I've done a few swaps with the gun's parts such as switching bolts and stocks. I can't seem to figure out why the SD6 seems to be doing that. Has anyone had similar problems with solutions?

My flock does that spray thing once in a while and dumps the whole mag, was from the hammer stick, doesn't release off the valve and just sprays all the gas, I'd look into that.

Question for you mp5 users. Have you ever tried an Azimuth Hi-Performance Magazine Valve for your Mp5 mags?

I have them on all of my mags. They have been more gas efficient for me. It was a pain to install though. The o-ring that comes with the valve do not work. I had to take the original o-ring off the original values and replace it with the new one. Then it worked flawlessly.

So i took a look at the hammer. I am not sure what you mean by sticking but I made sure it was lubricated. This is not a bad gbbr but the fact that there's constant maintenance on this one makes me want to get rid of it.

Hey guys,
I'm trying to get a hand on a Umarex (VFC) MP5-SD3 (GBB)

Where did you guys bought yours? I can't seem to find anywhere selling them in Canada and it's not on the safe list to be shipped to Canada from website that ships to Canada.

Any idea?

Thanks!

My MP5 is rock solid, very impressed with the quality of the materials VFC used for the body. Not impressed with the fact that my loading nozzle took a nasty chip after the first mag through it. Still fires great but I'm always concerned with it. Took a while for mags to sit and lock properly too.

If you can't find public Canadian retailers that carry it after a google search, there's other problems. ASC rules state we can't tell you where to buy anything until you're AV'd.

Thanks for the reply, I've contacted someone to get verified... I find it a bit odd to get verified but I'll abide by the rules...

Again, thanks!

Thought some people could use this gun explosion map for possible up grade...

Just updating on this thread.

Upgraded the gun with a TSC reinforced steel bolt head, FE Aluminum Loading Nozzle and Crusader Aluminum Loading Cylinder. The gun is amazing, it cycles and fires so much better from stock. Of course there was some minor modifications needed but otherwise, I have never jammed ONCE.

With the azimuth plastic loading nozzle it jammed like crazy.

The original bolt carrier is wearing down, but not enough to deem the gun inoperable.
