    Hi airsoft society.

    I was looking for a Gbb mp5, but there's an issue. I can't find any decent ones, Or any in new condition. There was the bell mp5, but I can't find it, and like any other mediocre brand, the gun was less comparable to a we gbbr. I know VFC had one, but from what I've seen, it was chock full of fail. So, with that said, what are my options, if any? Money is no object at the moment.

    Thanks.

    A WE MP5 is supposedly coming out some time soon.

    WELL MP5K (horrible clone)
    VFC MP5 (Like all VFC GBBRs, not that great (if not horrible)
    Classic MP5...ie Escort
    Daytona Gun MP5 (expensive but your best bet)

    Those really are you options as of now, nobody has come out with the perfect Mp5 platform yet, though I'm surprised because a good one would probably have a very large market.

    Does it function like a Polar Star?

    It doesn't use an FCU like a polar star.

    It's a classic, they run beautifully and reliably, though not at the performance of "today's" standards (though if you buy classic, usually they're used anyways and upgraded). Not to mention JAC MP5s don't actually recoil/blowback.

    They don't function like a polarstar, but they do use external air like a polarstar.

    JACs don't no...they have those recoil weights that were blowback back in the day...really just small vibrations.

    Escort/YE or Daytona Gun is really your best bet if you want a GBB MP5 that's reliable and performs well.

    True, I didn't think about Escort. That's what I'm after, after I get a hold of a JAC Battle Master first.
