MP5 takedown

For the various MP5 variants, the steps to take out the mechbox are similar but not entirely identical. In any case, the first thing I will do is to take away the butt stock. Then:

For the ICS/CA MP5s and the TM MP5K / PDW

  1. Separate the lower receiver from the upper receiver. The mechbox at this stage is still attached to the lower receiver.
  2. Detach the safety switch on both sides.
  3. Detach the motor plate and the motor. You’ll find two screws inside the hand grip. Have them unscrewed, and you’ll be able to take out the mechbox.

For the TM MP5s and the UTG MP5

  1. Detach the safety switch on both sides.
  2. Detach the motor plate and the motor. You’ll find two screws inside the hand grip. Have them unscrewed.
  3. Separate the lower receiver from the upper receiver. The mechbox at this stage is still attached to the upper receiver.
  4. Detach the front barrel mount set and open up the upper receiver. You’ll then be able to take out the mechbox. Be careful when you install the body screws that join the two halves of the upper receiver back together. The threads of the female receiver can be easily stripped. ALWAYS tighten the screws with care.
