Just got a used TW5. What should I look for?

Postby YellowThunder on Tue Nov 26, 2013 1:43 am

Hey all,

Total Noob here looking for advise. i just picked up a TW5 and I don't know when it was made, how many owners it had in the past, it's past history, or it's current status. All I know is it works right now and it seems like it's ok for the time being.

I like to make sure things are fine inside of the gun like worn parts, lubricating, greasing, things of that nature. Just to make sure I get some good years and fun out of this beauty. Is there anything I should look for specifically?

Thanks for your help guys!

I as well just picked up a used one and the only problem I have found it to be and from what I keep reading all over the net is there is a small gear set part number MP-GB-019 that might fail. The little red nylon cam cracks and rotates and causes the gun to not fire on its proper setting on the fire selector. It's a part that is 12.00 euro and can be ordered in the uk. I would just order one if I were you and every thing else seems like there is no potential for problems. Good luck and happy shooting.
