Anubis-custom MP5A5 Taclight GBB | SWIT Review

Today we are going to introduce one of the greatest submachine gun of all time– Heckler&Koch MP5, but not a reguler MP5 it's “MP5A5 SF taclight GBB” version from Anubis-custom. It's based on WE MP5 Series and Anubis have combine it with taclight handguard and upgrade the inner barrel to VT INOX series.

MP5 Having been adopted by 40 nations and numerous military, law enforcement, intelligence, and security organizations. First introduced as “HK54”, later modified to numerous types, as a few close bolt smg of that era, MP5 shortly became a top choice for special forces and elite police such as SWAT, GSG9.

First of all we would like to show you the direct comparison with the original MP5A3, starting with the fire selector.

This mp5a5 version features “3 rounds burst” mode and unlike the early model, which is written in “S-E-F”. This version is illustrated as a bullet icon. And typical pistol grip of MP5A5, the early model of MP5A3 however, has a thumb groove on the grip.

The rear sight has 4 holes on it, representing different combat distances, the smaller hole sight provides a more accurate shot. And the receiver is made up of stamping steel, heavier than zinc alloy that brings you a more realistic gun weight and handling experience.

There are two options to release the mag.Either simply pull the lever or press the mag release button, but that requires a longer finger lol. “Kal” on the mag well represents “caliber” in German.

Here comes the most unique part: taclight handguard. This type of the handguard is a 80s style version, no modern rail on it, just merely a slot for tactical flashlight deployment, surely gives you a cold war vibe!

To install the flashlight, just simply screw in the slot and you are good to go. On the other side of the hand guard, this rectangle area is for operating the flashlight. press the area close to the muzzle to simply turn on, press the area close to the mag well to activate the strobe mode.

Shooting test:

Temperature: 82 F

Gas: 12kg

Bullet: 0.25g 6mm BB

Muzzle Velocity: 340~350 FPS

Our Review of this gun:

Just like WE MP5 GBB, It has authentic weight, solid rate of fire, great recoil brings this gun to an ultra-realistic experience. The gas performance is very well. Clearing a whole 30 round magazine in semi auto is not a problem. burst mode provides you a quite decent accuracy. It is a good advantage to take down your enemy and save the gas.

Full auto is no doubt the best way to shoot, but original MP5 from WE sometimes it runs out of gas quickly, and may not be able to complete the hold open procedure. After Anubis-custom upgrade it can now operate better in same temperature.

The best part is the taclight handguard, although there's some mp5 taclight handguard on market but none of them can fitting WE MP5 well. It usually uninstallable or very loose after installed. But now you can pick this MP5A5 with Taclight hanguard from Anubis-custom, which is huge benefit for both night & CQB gameplay.


This Anubis-custom MP5A5 Taclight GBB SMG is definitely a worth to buy product. Decent price, steel parts, surprisingly good gas performance and mechanical tolerance while comparing with other brands. If you are a fan of special forces, or a tactical shooter game enjoyer, this gun definitely should be on your wishlist!
