best MP5?

What the best MP5 manufacturer in your opinion?
And I don't mean in terms of mechbox, I mean in terms of exterior, hopup, less bb feeding troubles, materials quality, etc.

Depending on your price range.

I'd go for the Systema TW5. Steel body. Fibre everything else.

CA B&T for all metal. If you don't mind plastic go TM

For metal, CA and ICS have beautiful externals. CA looks better though IMO.

For plastic, it's hard to beat TM.

And well, if you can pop the $1500 for a Systema and can somehow get one, then they're the all around best for externals, none barred.

I will add another vote for CA. Systemas and TMs are over-rated and ridonkulously expensive for something that the CA does better.

Totally agreed. CA is the best you can get and the best value for your money for a quality, all metal gun.

I have a G&G MP5 & I think the details compare very closely to a real MP5. Several friends of mine thought I bought a real MP5 when I was testing it at my local gun range.

Hey, no doubt there. I've seen both black and clear upper G&G MP5s and IMO, they're excellent guns considering the price. Actually, with the exception of a couple of really cheap ones, all the airsoft MP5s I've tried were nice guns. But in a a side to side comparison for weight, feel, performance and durability of internals, it's really hard for any other stock MP5 AEG, particularly plastic ones, to compare on equal grounds with a stock CA.

Bad idea. I imagine if someone did that, everyone would be "man that's so f-ing cool I want one" when they see it but then when you actually start shooting it down range everyone will just start laughing and teasing you.

While my MP5 is a Marui, it has a CA body.. and I'll throw in another vote for CA externals.

I was actually testing ammo for some of my real handguns for an upcoming match & wanted to see if anyone could tell it from the real one. My friend didn't know till he pulled the bolt handle back & said WTF? It was funny.

FPS doesn't really matter...

for a 12 dollar spring you can set your FPS anywhere from 250-500+ not that you would ever want anything close to that
