NEW WE MP5K Apache, could compatibility bring back a gun fro

Postby Jonny Scotland » Wed Jan 29, 2014 9:51 am

With WE releasing the new Apache MP5K the interest for GBB sub machine fun is hopefully going to increase but the cost will hold many back.

Unless a similar design from the past with a host of problems which in the now revamped mp5k could be solved...

The WELL MP5K as most will know is a God awful gun for one reason that the magazine leaks more then an incontinent shipwreck

If the WE magazines suffer from the same problem (being made by WE doesn't help) then the Apache is just a VERY expensive well G55, if it works then hopefully it is compatible and it's finally been made possible to have a cheap and RELIABLE gbb smg with a ROF close to 2000rpm

Not something KWA has tried yet though they have a better system

So finally to any techies or curious airsofter will the WE MP5K magazines fit AND work in a Well G55?

This could end in a very short no .

After years of the crappy Maruzen design, we finally may have something adequate. Very exciting.

I think he's asking about magazine compatibility between the new WE MP5 and the older WELL G55 or whatever it is.

I will say that it is unlikely that the mags will be compatible.

I generally have low hope for gas magazine compatibility. Each manufacturer thinks they've got the best design and so almost always have proprietary magazines for use with their own products.

I will be getting my hands on the new Apache later today and will come up with a basic overview if possible.

From what I've seen so far the three round burst is horrendously slow :/
