Novritsch SSP5 5.1 Hi-capa Split Slide GBB Pistol

Novritsch
Code:
326.99
  • Full metal construction
  • Optics cutout on the slide
  • Split slide design - Super snappy cyclic rate

If you want the fastest Hi-capa on the field but you don't want to build one yourself, the SSP5 5.1 is what you need! This full metal Hi-capa 5.1 GBB pistol is designed by Novritsch in Austria and has been considerably revamped to provide near-unparalleled slide speed thanks to its split slide configuration.

Out of the box, the SSP5 5.1 boasts light-enhancing iron sights with green inserts, making it great for low-light environments and CQB, but is also pre-cut for an optics plate meaning with the Novritsch optics plate you can add a red dot sight to further increase your speed advantage! Whether you hook it up to HPA for a seriously speedy speedsoft setup or you run it as a sidearm to your sniper rifle in the depths of the woodlands as the main man himself does, the SSP5 promises superb performance to keep every skirmisher happy!

Description

Hi-capa fans, you will want to see this! Novritsch is back with another GBB Hi-capa platform but this one departs even more from the usual Hi-capa formula. The SSP5 5.1 is designed for pure speed and accuracy and puts its money where its mouth is with its split slide and TDC HOP-up system which are sure to impress even veteran skirmishers with their own upgraded pistols!

There have been some speedy Hi-capas around for some time, but as far as mass-produced replicas are concerned, few come close to the cyclic rate and double-tap potential of the SSP5. This is the slightly shorter variant of the original SSP5, known as the "5.1" variant, and is equipped with a standard Hi-capa length barrel for a slightly quicker draw from a holster and a more skirmish-friendly muzzle velocity. If you want an ultra-fast Hi-capa without doing all the homework required to build one yourself, this is the best option! 

Starting at the tip of the outer barrel we can see 12mm CCW female threads, meaning with the correct adapter (available here) you can add a tracer unit or suppressor to the SSP5 to hone it in for the battlefield role you set for it. 

The outer barrel is also spiral fluted, and although the front of the slide doesn't move we are treated to a glimpse of the fluting through the faux compensator ports on either side of the fore-slide and the one on the top. The design of the front end of the SSP5 looks like nothing else on the market, so even if you want to build one yourself you won't be able to get this look easily!

As mentioned, the front of the SSP5 slide does not reciprocate, as in other split-slide designs. This has several advantages, including a faster cyclic rate, better gas efficiency and snappier follow up shots which are easier to control thanks to the reduced mass of the slide. The downside is that the recoil is somewhat reduced compared to full-slide Hi-capas, but if you are a performance seeker this is a fair price to pay for the edge it will give you on the field. 

Moving rearwards along the fore-slide we come to the optics cutout, which allows a red dot sight to be mounted on the stationary section of the slide using Novritsch's Premium Mount Plate. This means unlike other red dot equipped pistols, you will not have to reacquire the dot between shots as it stays stationary while the rear of the slide moves. Rapid follow up shots are a go with the SSP5 thanks to the considerate design mimicking the best qualities of real steel competition shooting pistols. 

Following the optics cutout we come to the grub screw adjuster of the TDC HOP-up unit, making a vast change from the standard Hi-capa which requires a field strip to adjust the HOP-up. The TDC style unit also has the advantage that it provides direct pressure to the top of the HOP-up nub which minimises side-to-side shot deviation for better accuracy and consistency down range. 

The moving segment of the slide meets the fixed fore-slide seamlessly, to the extent that it is hard to tell without racking the pistol whether it is a full slide or a split! This is a testament to Novritsch's build quality which is consistent across the entire replica. The side mounts the rear open iron sight which is fitted with light-enhancing green inserts, pairing well with the front sight and allowing for easier sight acquisition in low light. When the pistol is fired, the front sight doesn't move, allowing you to send a follow up shot down range far faster than with a full-slide pistol. 

The frame layout is that of a standard Hi-capa 5.1 with the same modular frame/grip assembly and familiar but extended controls. The grip itself has oblong style recesses and is slightly textured, making for a comfortable feel in the hands whether you skirmish with gloves on or you prefer a more intimate experience and all the knuckle pain that goes along with it! The rear of the grip, known as the "hammer spring housing" is constructed from high density polymer and has square-based pyramidal texture, adding even more grip to keep the SSP5 firmly in your grasp during energetic movements.  

The slide release catch is extended and textured on its surface so your speed won't be limited if you have smaller hands and the safety catch is also extended and present on either side. At the rear of the grip, the standard 1911/Hi-capa beavertail grip safety is present but is an extended design to ensure you are always able to disengage the safety quickly with a proper grip. The magazine release is a relatively low-profile design but is easily reached from a firing grip and has the advantage that its low profile prevents accidental mag drops in the field. 

At the front of the frame, we are treated to a 20mm Picatinny frame rail meaning you can add an aiming laser or tactical flashlight to the SSP5 with no need to source extra adapters or other fiddly bits. The frame rail is recessed in the centre to reduce weight, and inside the recess, you will find the Novritsch branding, F mark and model details. Along the left side of the frame, we can take note of the line of 5 threaded holes; these are designed for Novritsch's minimalist holster mount, allowing you to holster the SSP5 even when it is dressed up with a suppressor, tactical flashlight, red dot and tracer unit!

Whether you are a CQB speedster looking for a lightening fast Hi-capa to HPA or you are a sniper looking for a sidearm to keep the enemy at bay within minimum engagement distance and beyond, the SSP5 5.1 is one of the best options out there, packing pre-upgraded parts to give you all the performance but none of the fitting, installation and technical headaches!

Joule Charts

Special Instructions

These table can be used as a reference to see if the BB weight you are using will be over acceptable Joulage limits at some Airsoft Sites in the UK. To check if the weight can be used chrono your weapon using the BB you intend to use, and then compare it to the chart.

FPS, Power and Joule Limits can vary from site to site, so please get in touch with where you're going to play with in advance to avoid disappointment.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, with a 350fps limit for Automatic Replicas, 400fps for Semi-Automatic Replicas, and 500fps for Bolt Action Replicas.

Tap the tabs below to open the relevant chart for your replica.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, and is the equivalent of 350fps, using 0.20g BB resulting in an upper limit of 1.14j.
