…in a LONNNNNG Video that goes into details about the MP-5 Lycaon…and YOU DECIDE and COMMENT!
Frank might not be as happy if he had torn apart as many of the Aftermath M-4’s as I have. It is a stardard “clone” but in earlier instances, even the stock tubes and bodies were plastic so “flexible” the snapped off…and usually quit working shortly after purchase. NOT INNOVATION…so lets hold out some hope that the ASG/GAMO partnership will push this brand forward.
