So what about this TW5 Sytema after a day spent using it in a CQB ! At the level of the grip, we have something that inspires total confidence : It’s robust, it’s solid. There is no moving piece. I have never had a real MP5 in my hands, but it’s clearly the idea that I have made about it.
And suddenly, first small criticism, and there will be only two : it is the weight. Yes, 4 kilos, it’s a bit heavy, it seems 1 kilo more than the real one. Personally I have experienced worse, with much heavier replicas, but it is something to consider when buying since after, it will to wear it all day.
The advantage here is that it will be difficult to add weight (syndrome well known as “aircraft carrier” in french). Basically, we only put a red dot or a holo, which will not have the effect of too heavy the replica.
I just added a small Surefire Grip RS that some will recognize. At the level of shooting sensations, it’s a standard AEG, so no blowback. In spite of that, the sound, so soft in my ear, the reactivity, and the precision make that one finds oneself often enough with a little smirk, and I hope that I am not the only one in this case .
And after, just make a little “HK-Slap” when you change the mag for it to be total ecstasy. Let’s be clear : I am pro GBBR and other HPA user (as long as they have a Blowback system, the style of Daytona kit) and I do not hide it.
The fact is that this replica, like the AA-12 of Marui besides, in a certain way, reconciled me with the AEG. That’s it. I could also talk about the more or less rapid change of cylinder, which makes it possible to adapt to the style of play and the field where we will play.
This is not directly related to the in-game use, but it allows to play everywhere with the same replica, from 290-300 FPS for me, to more … well a lot of FPS with the red cylinder. Cylinder usable with this TW5 version max.
Otherwise, throughout the day, I have could note very good performance even if I can not advance on the basic accuracy. Indeed, like many people, here I have a second hand equipped with a precision barrel.
But originally, I know that there is a 6.04, which is not bad. As previously stated, we have to make reloads thanks to low-cap mag with 40 bbs and with the active bolt catch. It is always pleasant to have during an exchange of BBs, this small adrenaline rush when the replica stops shooting and when it is necessary to carry out the reloading.
This is one of the things that prompted me to invest in GBBR right away. And it is unfortunately this same system that brings me to the second small reproach. As much the system works very well, especially for something imagined in 2009, as much the mechanism inspires really little confidence.
It is strongly advised not to put empty mag in the replica. Indeed, the little rod detecting the empty mag is fragile enough and I have read on many forums that we could break it and lose it easily. Besides, for the little anecdote, the replica was sent to me without this stem.
I had to find the piece on the net, buy it and install it. Small aside also on the reactivity. I will not engage in an endless debate. I would just say she is very good. After, yes ! We can surely do better with HPA system, mosfet, titan gate.
.. everything you want. Perhaps. But I remind you, this replica date of 2009. And we should really be dishonest to not recognize this prowess. Because if it were so simple to do, everyone would have done it at the time, 10 years ago.
There were a few of these systems in 2009; systems that abound today. And whatever we have here is ready “out of the box”, and for a small fee (second hand). So, I think I’ve tell everything. In conclusion, this TW5 is a replica that I like a lot.
I started airsoft in 2007. It was released in 2009 and I waited for 2018 to buy one. It’s a form of consecration to get your hands on it. This TW5 is an AEG requiring a certain investment … both financial and muscular, but then provides a huge pleasure of play.
And it allows to play with a large smile behind the stalker, which is priceless !
