So, finally got round to taking a photo with the 552 on. Feedback welcomed :) sorry for the long grass

 

Would be nicer with a tan MOE pistol grip and the 552 sprayed Krylon Tan. At the moment it has a cobbled together look, while nice with AKs and Soviet/Eastern European military loadouts, it doesn't work on Western weapons too well unless you stick to a specific house style with the rifle.

 

For example, I kept my M27's furniture completely standard black- for it to work with a tan/MTP/Multicam loadout I added a tan sling, dark earth rail covers and a tan foregrip. That gives me a rifle which has it's colours broken up by a minimal amount of tan parts.

 

Now as you've gone for solid tan furniture while keeping the barrel set and receiver black, if it was my rifle I'd buy some tan magazines and spray the 552 to match the furniture, as well as installing an MOE pistol grip in tan.

yeah, the plan is eventually to buy a fusion engine for it (never give up lol, by the looks of things I may be able to buy one just before christmas) and then get a MOE pistol grip, and MVG, both in tan. Then I will save and eventually buy (hopefully) a G&P m16-a4 and install the fusion engine into that, turn it into a DMR and install the gearbox of the combat machine. Then I will add a tan silencer, maybe krylon the 552, etc and all. I have ambitions, people should, however mien are very high, and not entirely sure how long they will take me to achieve. But i can dream at the moment :)

The day Flex's dreams are achieved will be the day the forums rejoice! Ha ha, i joke but it would be interesting to see if you do end up p*ing a very basic weapon. But like Tac said, it would look better with all tan furniture, maybe some MBUS? A suppressor wouldn't look bad either.

haha yeah, pretty sure my dad says the same thing. Someday it will happen, I hope... thanks for the feedback as well :)

Actually..no lol, when ever someone says they've painted it I always expect like mixed paint because of the two tone and the other colour.

Nice one!

painted it with halfords black spray paint and it's held up to 10~ hours of handling over the last couple of weeks, it's how I test the adhesion

 

now just to get that G26 advanced I always wanted and a UGL

Just a weird question,

 

Do people prefer mp5sd's with the sliding stock or full?

Sliding stock is the best on the MP5. It's one of the main advantages of the MP5 for CQB, as well as looking damn good.

Ok, as I've got an mp5sd6? Full stock at the moment but only use it for cqb anyway, it alters between that and my m4 so I figured might be best. Just got to learn how to rewirw it.

 

Final question- how the hell do you a) take the fire selector off and mp5 B) get the gearbox out

There should be a hex bolt on one of the fire selectors, probably on the bottom of it. Undo that and you can take that one off, and pull the other (with the connecting bar) out.

As for the gearbox removal:

  1. Remove the motor plate
  2. Disconnect the motor
  3. There should be 2 screws on the inside on the plastic dividing wall between the gearbox and the motor cavity. These need to be undone
  4. Lift the gearbox out

There may be a couple of other screws you need to remove before taking the GB out and it could vary per model- I was used to my old CYMA MP5A5 and I haven't had that for a while.

If it's a fixed stock, it's not an SD6. Fixed stocks are either SD2 (SEF trigger group) or SD5 (ambi trigger group). The SD6 is a sliding stock and ambi trigger group version.
