Ah, good, I'm glad this discussion started. I saw it a few days ago, coincidentally a few days after I got an urge to get an MP5.
I have a UTG M87 SOS and an LPEG made by Crosman (which I am fixing up, painting, modifying, and going to sell) and I will be getting a g spec early May, and I am looking to get an ICS M4. I want to get an MP5, I'm not sure why. I guess because I like the look, have heard good about the UTG MP5, and it is a SEAL weapon. My team and I are going to form a milsim SEALs team, and where Penguin lives there is a lot of water around, so I intend to use the water to my advantage.
So, I wanted a gun around $100 that has good ROF, FPS, and accuracy. I also don't want to risk taking a $350 AEG underwater. The MP5 looks small enough to put in a dry bag, which is what I intend to do with it. Since the stocks are detachable, the gun should be able to fit in a smaller dry bag. So, am I making a good choice in getting this gun?
