    Price Range: $150 or less(preferably less)

    Type: AEG

    Model: MK5K

    CQB/Field Back-up

    I am planning on upgrading this gun, turning it into a high RoF build. I am not sure if they are made but a full metal body would be preferred. Rails for sights are not needed as of now, but will be wanted in the future.

    I was looking at the Galaxy MK5K, but would like to see if there are any other suggestions?

    What the hell is a MK5K? Do you mean a MP5K? If so...

    Common AEG Companies with an MP5K:
    Galaxy
    Tokyo Marui
    Cyma
    Classic Army
    Echo 1

    For your price range, look into a Galaxy or Cyma. Maybe an Echo 1 if you can find it used.

    Stock, they'll all be similar, but a few stand out from the crowd. The Classic Army (Discontinued, IIRC) and Cyma (Costs about $160) have a metal bodies.

    Yes. Absolutely. It features a V3 gearbox and a long type motor. It is completely upgradeable.

    Will these parts work in it?

    I was originally wanting to do a P90, but the one I was planning on getting was removed from the site. I will most likely do a P90 with a long barrel later, but not now. This was part of my parts list for it, was wondering if I can use them.

    Also, how does the battery fit into this gun? and what could I expect running a 9.6 until I can get time to install a 7.4 LiPo?

    I'm led to believe the parts will work with the gun. My only question is the motor, I can't for the life of me remember the motor type for the MP5k.

    In terms of the battery. 8.4v is what it's made to fit. To go bigger, Lipo is your friend here. A slim stick type Lipo is what you'll want. The Battery goes right above the barrel where the charging handle is - making the charging handle unusable.

    MK5K: Well, since both os these:
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=2336
    http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=10088

    Say MK5K, that is what I would assume it is called.

    Oh hey that search button thing that I already used, which mostly led me to the Galaxy MK5K? Yea, I know what it is and how to use it, so I did. I was looking for other suggestions, and making sure my choice was in fact what I was looking for.


    Will I have to use a PEQ box for it? IHOP said it was a long type motor, but since I wont be ordering the motor and gun from the same place I will check before ordering.

    The MP5k doesn't have much (if any) rail space, so you'll either have to get a rail kit for it or find some other alternative.
    You'd get the performance (if not better) of the 9.6v with a 7.4v Lipo... Unless you're trying to avoid Lipos for the time being, then yes you'd need a PEQ bow or some sort of external enclosure.

    Marushin makes a rail kit for it.

    Save up. TM's making a High Cycle MP5K soon, so you'll need little upgrades. But if not, the TM, CYMA or Galaxy will do well.

    The MP5K uses a long motor, just like the M4/M16.

    A 7.4V 1200 or 1600 mAh Stick Lipo fits great and the 1200 mAh leaves room for the charging handle to move.

    This is going to be my first "baby". I am going to start a build, and turn this into a fantastic CQB/Back-Up gun. Really make it... mine.


    So the charging handle is operational? I was planning on, at some point, putting on a buffer tube and retractable stock, so if I could wire it to the back thatd be nice...

    A simple modification to the charging handles allows the fitment of a 9.6V stick battery, but the charging handle really serves no purpose what-so-ever...

    I like charging handles... I do not know why but I love using them, I use them before/after every reload... Always have, probably always will. Thanks Sparky!

    So this is what I am planning on doing, if any of this will not work with the gun please inform me, or if something would be better...

    Gun:
    CM041K Full Metal MK5K AEG Airsoft Gun

    Internal:
    Pre-Lightened Lonex Red "Extreme Toughness" 10 Tooth Piston
    13:1 Ultra High Speed SHS Gear Set w/Gen I Bevel
    SHS M110 Spring
    Lonex Titan A1 "Red" Balanced Motor [Long]

    External:
    I would like to, if possible, add:
    Full Metal RIS
    Vertical Foregrip(Most likely Magpul)
    Laser
    Flashlight
    M4 Stock(Whatever fits a battery)
    Possibly new iron sights(will depend on how I like the originals)

    Internally, I think I still need a nozzle and piston head, maybe a new bucking. I do not know what kind of nozzle to look for.
    Externally, I am not sure what will work on this gun, not all external upgrades are really needed, just things I would like. Suggestions or tips are welcome.

    If there is anything else I need/could add let me know, and if there is anything I have that I could get better of that would be wonderful(depending on cost).

    Seems like you know what you want to do, but have you looked into the ics mx5?

    I had not, but I just did. I would prefer the MP5K platform, and I would prefer it a little cheaper for upgrading. I enjoy creating things so thats why I was going to get the CM041K and add on what I wanted. I just need to know if everything will work.

    That should put you at 30ish rps with a decent 7,4v li-po. As for the compression parts, Lonex should get the job done nicely. I'm doing a CYMA MP5K build myself soon, but i'm willing to sacrifice looks for performance and will use an external 11,1v li-po. Firefox makes an 11,1v li-po that will fit inside an MP5K, but it's too underpowered for my taste. It only delivers 24A cont., I prefer 50A+.

    I am not sure what I am looking for in terms of what will fit. I would like to get it from one of those sites already listed.

    No. It will be cheaper to get a lipo+charger (if you need one ) from Hobby King. Just find the dimensions of your average 8.4v stick battery and look at the dimensions of the lipo. A 11.1v buffer tube lipo would probably work best. If your worried about shipping from HK they have some US warehouses though selection is limited.

    BTW I love HK iron sites. But that is just me.
