    I have an APC9 Pro, an SP5K and I still want one of these SP5s and if they release a new SP5K.

    I like the MP5...simple.

    I already have a KAC handguard for it too

    This will be my first SBR. I think I want the fixed stock and the old Surefire forend so I can go totally 80s/90s boss with this thing. I already started looking for mags and they are either ONE MILLION DOLLARS or out of stock. I think HK may have done good on this one.
    it seems to cause some people real emotional anguish not to insist, at every opportunity, no matter how irrelevant to the discussion, that you....

    Only buy a Glock
    Only buy an M4
    Only buy a Toyota
    Only drink Coke

    They'll be bringing in mags. I'm seeing ten packs for $600 for new production mags- which is cheaper than some used mags anymore. Get the F stock, I had an A2 stock on my SBR MP5 and I don't ever use it- went collapsible stock then never looked back because it fits into a backpack. I want to get the MP5 KAC rail but they are rare and hard to find. You guys are getting in on new production stuff, so take advantage of what's available today on the market- not what was cool for period correct late 80's HK 94's turned MP5. I'll put up some pictures someday of my MP5's and German SIG pistols, but these days- hell add the new production HK pistols to go with your MP5's along with modern rails, upper rails, optics etc.

    Its a good start. Get the correct rear sight(hkspecialist has it for like 50 bucks for the real diopter rear sight). Those surefire forends are expensive but if you want the look well you want the look. The B&T ones can be found cheaper but the surefire looks better. Biggest problem is that you can't run a can with most of them without an adapter. For mags a lot of people swear by the pof mags. Places like RTG parts get them in batches and they are a lot cheaper. The MKE mags are good but they are not much cheaper than the hk ones.

    Operation Parts has one of the MP5 Ras rails in stock. They started remaking them maybe two or three years ago in limited numbers but they did a few runs. I'd buy one now although it wouldn't surprise me if they release them again before too long. Gun parts corp has the mp5f stocks new still for 350 bucks which is where I'd get one Greg. Honestly I prefer the old school a3 but they are getting harder to find(I like that its a little shorter) but the A2 is the best shooting stock followed by the b&t. People like the a3 though because it looks cool and yea makes the gun a lot smaller without making it thicker like a choate or b&t folded.

    I think the SureFire foreends are not only neat looking but actually very practical. I frankly think they're the best way to mount a light on an MP5.

The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    Not going to buy two until modification to the carrier block is decided to be GTG.

    If it can't be sear host, don't want it. Have SP5K's worked by TSC to scratch enough of itch.

    Need to do a 33K host anyway.

    Sounds like a good time to pick up a 94 to send to TSC. I just grabbed on on Gunbroker for $3,900 with an A3 and A2 stock as well as a pile of mags. They have taken a big hit with the SP5 release, but to me they are still preferable.

    I don't see the ATF going for a receiver modification.

    I would send it ASAP. If new gun laws as written in VA pass, Mike will be shutting down in all likelihood. Straight from his mouth.

    Have another beltfed with him, but has been there for a while so place "in line" is fine even with possible timeline. Also have everything necessary for 33K build but wonder if he could get to it in time if he does shut down in June.

    Calling him Monday.

    Ya he said the same to me, actually one of the reasons I was willing to pull the trigger now on the 94. I have a G3K with him now and just picked up a PDW.

    Why won't a two piece "bolt together" type carrier work? Wasn't someone building those to get around these type of blocks? I know it wouldn't be like a factory HK MG, but neither are any of the '94 conversions with shelves and all.
