PostSubject: MP5A5 convert to MP5K or MP5 PDW   Tue Nov 27, 2007 2:25 pm

Anyone know if itís possible to convert a MP5A5 to an MP5K or PDW? It looks like they are just about the same; only thing is that the A5 has a longer barrel and grip. Can that be switched?

I have an Echo 1 Vector Arms MP5A5 which I want to convert to a PDW (just the front of it) so I can put a new RIS mount on it.

Is it possible to maybe change the barrel? I have not received it yet...itís a Christmas present from my wife. Sad Is the whole top all one piece? Maybe it can be bought as a replacement part and switched? Hmmm.

I found this:

Maybe they can be switched...a bit expensive though...might as well buy another gun lol.

There are no conversion kits, though one could do it themselves. I thought of making one out of an old lpeg MP5A5 I used to have, but I figured the modification wouldn't look nearly as cool as if I had purchased a real MP5K.

As for the rails, you may be able to buy a new hand guard with rails on it. You wont get the shortened length like an MP5K, but still the rails.

What you can do, is get a shorter barrel, designed for an MP5K, and replace it. Find a new place to put the battery, and the rest is cosmetic work.

Right now I have this:
http://echo1usa.com/English/images/DSC_0677.JPG

I wanted a full metal AEG and this is clocked at over 400 fps. I will also get the A4 Solid Stock to put a larger battery in the back. (the MP5A4 was sold out when I bought this over the weekend)

Now I like this look better - MP5 CQC (minus the M4 stock):
http://echo1usa.com/English/bmz_cache/7/7a940c85cfc204f8d91801f0fa557865.image.750x462.jpg

which has this RIS on the front:

I would have gotten the Echo1 that has it but I wanted a full metal version with the higher fps...just because. I was just wondering if there was a cheap way of getting that RIS to fit mine. I will have to see how the one I bought looks at christmas time, maybe I will like it with the Mad Bull Silencer I got attached to it. Just my preference, I like the look of the MP5 CQC better.

Well it'll be a complete overhaul of the gun...im not even sure its possible.

what you'll need...

new top reciever: http://www.kapowwe.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=boneyard-a004m-mp5-font-cocking-tube&Category_Code=bone-yard-mp5&Store_Code=R

a shorter barrel, probably PDW length

i think thats it... though i could be wrong. I dont think any of our members have the knowledge to help you out. I suggest trying arniesairsoft.co.uk im sure they have plenty of members that would be happy to help you.
