ICS AEGs are high quality, reliable, and often feature innovative designs, all while managing to be more affordable than AEGs by many competing brands. For these reasons, ICS is a popular brand with all spectrums of airsoft players, and their MK5 series is one of the best examples of this. The ICS MK5 is easily one of the best, if not the best, MK5 on the market, and it comes at an affordable price as well.
The MK5 is a compact 9mm submachine gun that excels at what it was designed for: close quarters combat. Often the weapon of choice among SWAT teams, counter-terrorism units, and other special operations personnel for building raids and other urban operations, the MK5 has earned itself a solid position in both Hollywood and popular video games. And, just like the real SMG, airsoft MK5s make an excellent choice for CQB/MOUT gameplay, earning them a place in the hearts of airsoft CQB specialists worldwide.
The MK5A4 features a full stock instead of the standard retractable MK5 stock. Essentially an MK5A5, but with a solid full stock, this allows this AEG to store large-sized batteries for performance. While one would usually equate a full stock as bulky, as in the case of the M16, the MK5A4’s stock is hardly noticeable, as it is only slightly longer than an MK5A5 with its stock fully extended. The stock also has a very streamlined shape, and does not get in the way any more than a retractable stock would. As far as build construction, this AEG is true to the real thing, featuring the newer “pictogram” lower receiver, and is fully ambidextrous. It also comes with a metal upper receiver, and the lower receiver, hand guard, and stock are all made from high grade polymer. In addition, both the front and rear sight are adjustable, and the rear sight rotates to allow the operator to choose from four different sized apertures for different applications.
Internally, this AEG is very robust and performs well; this is an AEG you can rely upon. It also features ICS’ newer Turbo 3000 motor for enhanced trigger response and ROF. Hop-up is adjusted via an external lever, making it much more convenient than a hop-up dial located inside of the receiver. The lever is rigid and will not move on its own or from light bumps. The charging handle still functions and can be locked to the rear, but does not open the ejection port. Because of the excellent value and performance this gun offers for a great price, this AEG is an excellent choice for both veteran CQB players and newer players who want a solid platform they can rely on.
