Sometimes, less is more. You don’t need to hint at 5 new releases when there is only one thing that everyone wants to see…
After waiting and waiting weeks and weeks for a release date for the GBBR AKM, what do Marui go and do? Yeah, they ambush us with something truly lust-worthy by releasing this sneaky peek;
That, ladies and gentlemen… That is a Navy lower for an MP5.
It’s not a G36, and it’s not one of the other few H&K rifles that look similar, but not exactly the same. The safety marking in white is in that location on the MP5, on most other H&K rifles it sits further up, unless it’s a ‘53… and fuck it, I’d buy one of those as well anyway.
It also looks like it’s a rather matt finish compared to Marui’s older MP5s… A blessing to be honest, as they weee never the best in overall looks and ended up as a shiny bit of plastic in short order.
Could it be the NGRS (Next Generation Recoil Shock) that people have been waiting Marui to make for over a decade? Could it be the first GBB MP5 that’s actually not a disappointment? (I’m looking at you VFC, WE doesn’t know any better).
Could it be a Boys (Smaller scale AEG for the Japanese market) or Resident Evil model?
The answer is; we just don’t know.
But we will… On the 23rd of April at 11am GMT (20:00 Tokyo), Marui will give us a few more answers to the questions we all have.
- What platform will it be?
- Which model MP5 will it be?
- Can I slap it like it owes me money?
- Will that mad fucker Marui Promo man finally bang his Anime girlfriend?
Hopefully we’ll get a few answers to at least 3 of the above questions, but don’t expect a 2021 release… Marui tend to have a 18/24 month gap between first tease and release. With the way things are at the moment, it could be even longer.
Oh, and there’s also a Glock being teased…
I’m literally throwing guesses at this one, half because they all look the same to my untrained eye, secondly because… It’s a Glock. Not groundbreaking, unless it’s RMR cut.
Which Glock and what platform, I don’t know. It could be AEP or GBB, it’s likely not a NBB or springer, although never say never.
As for the model? Possibly a Gen 5, but I wouldn’t have a clue as to which model. A 17 or 19 seems unlikely, given that they’ve released one of each within the last 2 years. An updated 26 would be welcomed, as would a 43 or other as yet unreleased model.
If I had to put my money on it, a 43X or one of the Gen 5 models would be my particular guess. If it’s RMR cut, I’ll buy it no matter the model.
More news as it comes on Saturday… But for now, I leave you with an idea of how awesome this could be…
Sorry, wrong folder… This is what I meant to post;
