UTG MP5 Version 2 review!

UTG MP5 Review...NOT INDEPTH BUT REALLY LONGASSED...

When I opened up my package from Sam at BC Airsoft Supply I was surpised to find that well the package...is actually an inside out UTG box. Everything was perfect well almost everything because the package was really really really dusty due to shipping and such...and I had to compress air and vacuum the whole body of the gun. Other than that the craftsman ship is quite good. I will now proceed to get into the actual review...

Body of the gun...
The body of the gun is well built and you can see the imitation weld points at various places. Comparable to my TM MP5 SD5. It is quite resistant to scratches in comparison to my TM. However the fore grip feels a little wobbly at first but thats because you haven't put the battery inside yet. Once its inside it feels quite solid. The only bad thing is the flash hider which seems to be made out of a lower grade of plastic in comparison to the rest of the gun. It is easily screwed off...remember righty tighty and lefty loosey....you have to work really hard at unscrewing the flash hider but its worth it. After you unscrew it just sand it down and paint it black...you can pretty much hold the gun anywhere with one hand and it won't fall apart. Lack of trademarks made me sad...but oh well not like someone is actually go up close to you at a game and be like LOL you have 6 mm on your gun....ok I would do that but not everyone is a jerk like me...

Stocks
It comes with 2 stocks and the sliding/retractable one is installed. I loved the sliding stock and it works really well. However I am a solid stock kinda guy so I just took the sliding one off and installed the solid stock. The butt plate of my solid stock was kind of warped so I just sanded it a bit and its beautiful now. The strap pins are well built. Removing the sliding stock was a bitch as there are these two small parts “clip spring and retaining pin” they are small and tend to bounce right out...so yeah paint them florcent orange or something if you plan on swapping stocks a lot.

Battery and charger
They work great and don't have that awful battery smell other batteries and chargers have...just gets warm but not hot. The connectors fit snugly but you don't have to force them together.

Magazines
The magazines they come with works well except the ugly winding wheel is white instead of a stealthy black...the fake bullets look...fake....

Straps
These are by far the oddest looking straps I've ever seen and I've yet to try them out...

Scope mount.
This thing fits great but I don't have a scope to go with it. But you can screw it on and hold the whole gun up by just the scope mount. All metal construction.

Operation of the gun.
Semi and Full auto works great roughly around the same FPS as my Stock TM MP5 SD5. ROF feels similar. I haven't tested accuracy since I'm still kind of sick and I don't feel like venturing outside and re-catching the flu or letting the sars regroup...

I've been considering getting this gun from the same place. Over all, would you say its worth the money just to plink around in the basement?

Yes. We just got a couple from the guy. GREAT price, especially for this gun... you can buy an overpriced crosman M4 springer for this price in Canada. This gun is GREAT.

Oh yeah, you wouldn't know how the sling is used, would you?

I have a milforce 3 point sling so yeah its quite simle to use just ignore all that velcro shit it comes with. Add a keychain ring to the back strap pin and just hook the front one using the clip. The sling is quite long so yeah play around with different configurations...go to a game ask someone to set it up for you...

Are this a review of the V2 or V1?

Cannon, do you actually own one?

Seriously, read my springer story. If I got a guy with that, you can definately get a few with this.

It'll hold itself at the same as a normal TM MP5 (maybe a bit lower...) and even MP5Ks are used in some outdoor games, it will definately give you good mobility.
It's all about your play style.

Though, if you're a fat guy that can't run faster more than a normal guy walks, get a upgraded M14 instead.

MY THREAD IS TURNING INTO A FLAMEWAR HAXXORS....

I actully own a TM MP5 and a UTG MP5 so I'm unbiased about this gun. All I can say is I can use either one but I prefer to use the UTG MP5 because I don't have to treat it like a TM. I can basically abuse it as much as I want to...without worrying about costly repairs..The TM feels a lot better in terms of realism due to the weight distribution and the trades. The ROF is a little better. Accuracy wise both guns are holding up.

I currently doing external mods. I plan to keep it stock as it will be my CQB gun and the TM I will upgrade for outdoors.

Lots of people upgrade their UTGs and they run fine. I suggest you buy yours off BCAS!

I think the bushings cannot be swapped (some modding required to the mechbox shell itself IIRC). I think a hurricane kit would do the trick.
