Our take: The NEW SRC SR5-AS is by far one of the best CQB M5 AEGs on the market, and one of the best values! What sets this CQB M5 AEG apart from the others is its hefty reinforced ABS polymer external construction and compact size, making it ideal for indoor close quarters combat! By removing the stock and replacing it with a stock cap, the SR5-AS AEG's length is almost the same as an M5K. However, the SR5-AS features an inner barrel over twice as long as an M5K AEG! The nylon polymer construction of the SR5-AS is far superior to most other plastic body AEGs on the market, and is nearly as durable as metal! If you are looking for a CQB AEG, the SR5-AS is one of your best options, for an unbeatable price!
Lightweight & Rugged Externals:
The SR5-AS AEG, by SRC, features one of the best nylon polymer bodies on the market, with a comfortable textured grip and a hardened feel. This SR5-AS feels much more sturdy than any other M5 AEg in its price range, and is completely inflexible. For a more compact profile, ideal for CQb engagements, SRC has removed the stock and replaced it with a stock cap. This cap has an attached single point sling mount, which make it much easier to transition around corners and store the gun when not in use. The integrated standard M5 diopter sights make aiming at CQB distances quick and easy, and the rear diopter sight is adjustable for windage and elevation. The selector switch, magazine release, and mock charging handle are all fully functional, and have a crisp, smooth action. The SRC SR5-AS is one of the best CQB AEGs for the price, and is sure to turn heads on the airsoft field!
SRC Quality Manufactured Internals:
Featuring a full metal reinforced high speed Version 2 gearbox, this SRC SR5-AS AEG means business. The SR5-AS fires consistently over 300 FPS, however it is still low enough to be "CQB legal" at most indoor airsoft fields. With a standard 8.4v Mini type battery, the SR5-AS AEG fires over 750 rounds per minute giving you the high speed advantage on the field! The factory installed 6.03mm tight bore inner barrel extends all the way to the tip of the flash hider, giving you the maximum amount of barrel length and accuracy in the smallest lightweight package! Unlike most other M5 AEGs in its price range, the SR5-AS AEG comes with a full metal hop-up unit, which increases accuracy and consistency. The SRC SR5-AS AEG's performance, paired with its unrivaled construction explains why it is one of the most sought after CQB AEGs on the market!

Battery Charger Recommendation: This AEG DOES NOT come with a battery or charger. Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging), but more importantly, also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
