Hi guys,

As i'm still fairly new to airsoft I was wondering if yous could help me out with some advice?

I've got a budget of 300 maximum. And I want my 1st gun to be full metal and brand new! Basically i've narrowed my choices down to these 2;

(1) G&G PM5 A5 - Posted Image

(2) ICS SG 552 - Posted Image

So anyway I guess what I want to know is out of these 2, which would yous choose and why?

As for the manufactures, I know ICS is pretty "Top Drawer" but don't know anything about G&G for quality, reliability, etc. So are G&G AEGs any good?

Cheers in advance to whoever replys!

I would say get the MP5 as it is a decent make not the best but in my opinion prettymuch better than ICS as you can still buy things other than an ICS brand to fix it and im pretty sure G&G is an offspring of G&P and to me their the best at AEG'S.

G&p and g&g are in no.way related.
Is get the Sig, they're supposed to be really good.

If its just a pick bettwen the PM5 A5 and SG 552 its no contest the PM5

The MP5 is a classic gun so getting parts, accessories and mags new or second hand will be simple. Its also not too common a model which will help it stand out and I think it looks bad *** for a MP5

Well this was one of the reasons that I liked this type of MP5, as it is a unique model. But on the other hand, I like the originality of the 552, as I haven't seen or heard of too many people using it.

Anyway, my main concern is what type of quality are G&G guns? As this is the only manufacturer (that i know of) that does this model of MP5.

Also can anyone give me their recommendations of good quality manufacturers? Apart from the obvious few, TM, G&P and Classic Army ....
Cheers

I have a G & G M4 Blowback and have had no issues with it plus all the aftermarket accessories I've bought fit no problem.

Not used either myself, but after-market spares should be a serious consideration if you will be playing with (and wearing out/breaking) your guns regularly.

I'd go with whatever one you can get the worky bits for most easily, as without them you've just got a cool looking model. B)

A point of note, i've only owned a couple of ICS's and despite being 'nicely' built, both of them have been a right pain when it comes to reliability.

Looks very similar to my modded TM Mp5 B) well it does when I take the PEQ and Silencer off and add the PDW QD Flash hider. :lol:
