If this isn't a sign that Airsoft is going to continue to grow in the future, then I don't know what is.

Well, today turned out to be a real treat.  I called up one of my besties, Trent F. Warren, and we went to check out Operation: Black Shield at SC Village.  I was particularly interested to see the new KWA FMT truck & trailer that I had seen the day before on their Facebook page.  "FMT" stands for Field Marketing Team, according to KWA.  Little did I know that their trailer was more than just a trailer.  It is a mobile showroom for all their guns, including ALL their known prototypes.  This thing was super fresh, super clean like Outkast. Heck, it even has air conditioning in it.  I wouldn't be surprised if they had a secret martini bar hidden away in there that flips out from behind a wall at the touch of a button.

While the big show was obviously the trailer, there was quite a lot going for their new Ford F250 Monster truck. Customized a la KWA.

Umarex HK MP5 A5 Performance Test

If you're not up to speed on the Umarex HK MP5 A5 Electric Blowback SMG, check out the first part of my review here: Umarex HK MP5 A5 Electric Blowback SMG Review - Part I

NOW...Here is a little video illustrating why I'm totally on board with this Airsoft SMG and am happy to have it in my arsenal.



 




When I first set eyes on the Umarex H&K MP5 A5 Tac Electric Blowback Rifle (EBBR) in person a month or two ago, I realized a month or two ago that I've never really dealt with an MP5 on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog here. This one was so visually and physically impressive, that I figured I would check it out, in case any of you wonderful readers out there were in the market for a high quality MP5.


So before I get too deep into the features of the H&K MP5 A5 Tac EBBR, I'd like to take a moment to talk about the actual manufacturer that Umarex partnered with on this one. Top Tech is a relatively little known brand, at least here in the states. It does not get as much time as I think it deserves in the spotlight as its more affordable counterpart, Guay Guay, or best known as G&G. Top Tech is G&G's high end line of airsoft guns and nothing short of impressive. I recall my first encounter with the Top Tech product line at Shot Show 2011. I was at the G&G booth and picked up one of the rifles they had on their wall, thinking it was just a standard G&G M4, but this one had significantly more weight to it, with a much more solid build than I was expecting from a regular G&G rifle. When I asked their staff about it, they informed me that it was a Top Tech blowback M4. Boom. First impression: mind blown. It was really nice, as were the rest of the guns in the Top Tech line. So this MP5 being a Top Tech as well comes as no surprise.

Enough jibber jabber. Check out the features of the Umarex H&K MP5 A5 Tac EBBR after the jump...

I know that I've reported in the past on the KWA LM4 Gas Blowback Rifle (GBBR) & Electric Recoil Gun (ERG), but since then, KWA has decided to not only douse each model with a bunch of Magpul PTS furniture, but they're also going to be offering the ERG platform in three different lengths:

The SPR length, for the designated marksmen out there.

The Scout, for a versatile, indoor/outdoor option

The CQB, for...well...CQB.

I forgot to ask whether the gas blowback models will also come in these lengths or if it will simply come in the standard 14.5" barrel length.  Oh well.  Now I have a reason to go back!  Haha.

Check out the video wherein I interview Mike from KWA about the new guns.
