I come to you guys in a "time of need" (IE so I can waste money)
I am sick of searching, and I kinda need a fast answer, as I'm about to buy one of these two SMG's. It's down to these two:
-Classic Army MP5SD6 (Whichever they call it, basically the SD with collapsible stock, all metal upper reciever etc)
-Tokyo Marui MP5SD6
Pros - Cons TM:
-Easy to fix (sorta)
-Broken cocking tube parts, even if you don't play with it much
-Higher stock velocity
-More metal parts overall :P
-Heard they aren't as reliable
I've had a crapload of AEG's before, and they were all Tokyo Marui. I've got alot of experience with my friends TM MP5A5, and I love how it is so portable, but I really want something with a metal body, preferably without dishing out an extra $200 for one on top of the original price on the gun itself. I just got a metal body for my M16A4, and wow, it really does make it feel like I can use it as intended, instead of babying it!
What experiences do any of you dudes have with the Classic Army MP5's? I hear about different versions, like "3.5ver" or some crap, but I dunno much about them. If it ends up real bad, I'll go with the standard: Tokyo Marui.
Anyway, I found this site to have far more mature people than ASR, so I thought I might have a chance with some serious, honest-to-God responses here, as opposed to hearing kids ask me if I'm trying to look like Delta or SEALs or Elian Gonzales or something.
I had a CA MP5SD with full stock. I loved how it felt, a good almost heavy weight, very sturdy, you didnt have to worry about it hitting a tree and breaking apart. But in the 2 months i had it, i never used it in a game, and only shot it around the house, but I had to have it repaired twice, once for gears, and i dont remember what the other was, so while it was pretty cool, id definatly get a TM over anything, no matter what gun, TMs are always more reliable.

Go buy a TM then buy an aftermarket metal body for it. You joined airsoft and everyone knows its not cheap, so either buy a metal body for your TM gun or buy a CA gun and replace almost everything inside.
My friend bought an ICS MP5 RIS, and that thing just sucked so bad. Nearly everything fell off it right when we got it to his house. He hadn't played but for about 10 minutes and it broke. The new ones are probably better, but eh, maybe I'll stick to TM.
Elian Gonzales in referance to how the guys who grabbed that little bitch and took him away were armed with MP5's, but if I'm wrong, I don't care. I think they were. (Gotta be careful, cause if I'm wrong, I'll get assaulted by Chairborne Commandos!)
I scrapped the entire idea of the MP5. I've got somethign in that realm of usefullness with a CAR15 (XM177).
Yeah, CAR15's with short barrels are neato. Mine has the 11.5 inch barrel with 5 inch flash suppressor or whatever it is, and it's ALL PLASTIC BABY! Creakin' around! I strap it to the side of my rucksack so I may use it in CQB.
i 'll say last time
i saw in my life only 4 AEG's seriously failures
3 of them were TM (one ICS)
is this prove anything?? NOTHING is this prove that TM is a piece of crap?? NO!!
that is prove there is no rule!
if u have bad luck your AEG will broke anyway
and if you have luck and you'll take care of your AEG it should work for ages
BTW so many CA Aegs in my team and no single problem with it
