Haven't seen any good photos of the E&L Manufacturing MP5 SD barrel shroud installed.  I know that some of y'all have bought this product.  So...post photos please!  Thanks!

I got one of those barrel shrouds from E&L.  I was hoping it was a aluminum shroud but unfortunately is was plastic.  Its a decent barrel for the price, looks good just a bit long.  The barrel part is a bit too shiny though, so I sanded and painted it a duller black to give it a metal look.  The pics are before i painted and they were taken on a camera phone so they arent that good.

I like it, especially for <$50.
Showed it to Mrs elwd1 and all she said was "Super Soaker?"
What a buzz kill.......

are there any modifications to the E&L that need to be made for it to work on the GSG-5?

No they provide a replacement screw for the barrel block and the shroud just slips over and locks onto the barrel pretty much. Not hard and takes only a couple seconds to do really. Now getting it off takes longer than a couple seconds as it fits on there pretty snug. But not that hard to take off when breaking down for cleaning.

Are these SD barrel shrouds secured to the gun in any way (set screw, etc.) or just a snug fit over the barrel? How secure does it feel when shooting?

I got mine in the mail last night and although I am really impressed with how great the companty is to deal with and how fast they ship. The product felt really cheap and toyish. I didn't bother installing it.

It actually feels really solid once installed. I purchased my gsg w/ it already installed and didn't think I'd like it. But once in-hand it wasn't bad at all. I suggest installing it before you decide against it.
