Have you ever needed a great, reliable cheap CQB gun for backyard wars or the local airsoft field? Well look no further!

Source Me!

Quality of body. Plastic/Metal parts.

Very few things on this gun are metal, honestly. Of course the gearbox is metal, but besides that the mag release, bolt release, front iron sight, body pins, trigger, and fire selector are pretty much the only metal parts.

One badd factor is the lack of rails, but external rails are cheap online, and some RDS's are made to fit directly to the M5 body

Despite that the plastic gives a great lightweight feel to the gun, making it very easy for you to single-hand wield the gun (actually comes in handy, especially in CQB). Or if you want, get two and go Rambo-style on your opponents, believe me yours friends will be jealous when they see you blazing them down in CQB with TWO guns.

Now though, do NOT let this discourage you. The gun is a VERY sturdy plastic and has taken many blows with almost no scratches! I have honestly abused this gun though, and some thing have broke.

Broken parts-
-One pin(Pin can easily be replace by a sanded wooden dowel spray-painted black. Looks better anyway)

-Screw on the PDW Stock(Causes the rod to fall out, making the stock totally useless[Usually ends up falling off]). I fixed this by shoving the small metal rod back in and putting black duct tape on each side. Works just fine now!

Otherwise this gun is VERY sound for being such a cheap Chinese gun.

The mag is made of great metal, however the paint is cheap, and does give-way to give the mag a cool heavy-war feel. It's hard to explain, but I personally like it.

I would also like to note that the gun feels great in your hands, is very well weighted, and is overall very comfortable.


The FPS on this gun is made mostly for CQB. This gun does it's job wonderfully in CQB, although it is on the fairly in-accurate side of airsoft.

The RPS on this gun is something to brag about however! On an 8.4v battery the firing rate is unbelievably fast for having a stock motor. Personally, I would buy a VB 9.6V 1600 mAh battery and tape it to the front of the gun where the Tamiya connector is at, and then leave the grip off(hold the gun just above the mag to avoid breaking the mag).
A battery of such degree makes this gun shoot blazingly fast, which is what you expect and want for CQB.

The Hop-Up on this gun is sub-par and could use a change-out. It tend to curve up on .20g bbs even with the hop-up all the way down. It's not too bad of a curve, but it deffinetily is noticeable.

The Barrel is also sub-par quality, and could use some replacement. It's not a very long barrel so it could use a good 6.03mm tight-bore for any accuracy whatsoever.

Due to the bad hop-up, I recommend getting some .23 or .25g bbs for this gun. They will help you in the long-run for accuracy.

This gun has only jammed once in ~50,000 bbs due to .12s being so irregular(trust me, that was early in my airsoft career, DON'T USE .12s, THEY RUIN YOUR GUN!)


Would I recommend this to anyone? YES! For your money this has to be the BEST CQB gun on the market.

Just get a 9.6v, tight bore barrel, and a new hop-up and you will be even happier.
