Yeah you're kind of SOL even if you were to get AV'ed. I've really only seen about 5 or 6 MP5 receivers in all the time I've been AV'ed (however I was never actively looking for them).

There's not much you can really do other than possibly fixing it with plastic glue (I use this stuff that you can only get from specialty construction stores, such as what I refer to as "The Concrete Store" (it's actually called Universal Concrete)). I'm sure that you can do the same with plastic glue like they sell at Games Workshop (don't go there to get your glue though unless you like the feeling of an empty wallet or you're really rich).

Wait, you said it's cracked so you can't play with the cocking lever anymore?

Is it the actual upper that is cracked or just the cocking tube? Most AEGs have the cocking tube separate from the receiver (unlike real steel where it is one piece or welded on). If it's just the cocking tube that is cracked, then you can buy a new cocking tube.

Aside from that, you can try a strong epoxy or JB weld for your reciever. If that fails, get age verified and hope one comes up. I've seen them sold for cheap before in the forums.

The front part of the upper receiver on an MP5 has two little arms that jut out. Those arms are what hold the entire front portion of the gun (including the cocking lever) to the receiver. A bolt goes through the arms, and that holds everything together. The bolt holes cracked through, so the bolt has nowhere to go through. The cocking lever spring travels back into the receiver, basically trying to push the entire cocking assembly (and front of the gun) away from the rest of the gun. So if i play with the cocking lever... I'm sure you know about the MP5 slapping sound when the bolt is released. Basically, if the bolt is allowed to fly forward, the entire front portion of the gun fly's off, leaving just the inner barrel.

I think i'll just wait another year and get a metal receiver. It'll look way better in any case.

Thank you for your help, everyone.

Yeah, please shut the fuck up before you give someone the wrong idea.

Condoning smuggling or purchasing from the US should be an infractable offense.

Talk to you parent or legal guardian to get this done. I had a clear receiver shipped to me direct from taiwan to the philippines for about 90USD by an Canadian online retailer. Most retailers have access to clear lowers and would probably sell to someone over 18 for a lot of money but that seems to be your only option until you are AV.

Lower receiver http://torontoairsoft.com/product.php?id_product=275

And for a upper receiver, I would stop looking for them if I were you, only because that is a restricted part for import so only the A/V'ed section will have it...

Sorry.
