Who Makes the best MP5?

Hi,

I was wondering who makes the best Airsoft MP5 and the runner up would be nice to know to. I've read and watched a bunch of reviews on different brands take on the MP5 (mostly the G&G, ICS, Classic Army and the TM). I've also heard ICS is the best but i'm kind of secpticle about that.

Thanks in Advance

ICS is the easiest to work on, by far. I can have a mechbox out of an ICS MP5 in a couple minutes at most. Marui takes quite a few minutes, and more putting it back together.

I would buy ICS or Classic Army.

Are the ICS internals different from others in the MP5? Like in the Armalite series?

The gears are different axle hole dimensions, tappet is different (but you can install aftermarket into the ICS), but pretty much everything else is fine.

Not sure about internals but an ICS metal body cracked on my gun couple of years ago. I assume it was due to cold since that gun was never dropped or abused. Both hopup forks just snapped.

So your vote goes to CA, then?

Where can I go for additional information on this subject?

CA and ICS are great choices. dont knock TM though. if you get one, it is pretty much guaranteed to work for you out of the box with no hiccups. however given where i am now in airsoft, i would only buy CA products or something of similar quality as i usually upgrade my guns from the get-go now.

Pretty much. I ended up getting CA body after ICS broke. New receiver didn't have any trades from what I can remember but it felt a lot more solid than ICS.
I owned 2 CA AEGs with V3 boxes, don't remember having any serious problems with internals.

It does.

I have a CA body on my TM MP5, and the body is awesome.
