    Carry over from the SP5ks which were the first ones introduced. You have a correct MP5 rear sight. Even on K's I swap them out. Castle sights suck.

    Does it leave scratch marks on the sp5 like it does b&t guns?

    Not yet. Haven’t gotten it to the range yet with the bad weather and Mother’s Day. My son has been finger banging it a lot, and he can screw up an iron ball, and I don’t see anything yet.

    IIRC when HK released those CA DOJ HK94s in the early-00s they all had the castleated sights as well.

    Yep, but that is how CA DOC ordered them.

    What's a castelated sight?

    It’s basically the drum sight with open notches instead of apertures. They were correct for the original, stockless, mp5k. They are better if you aren’t using a brace since it is difficult to use apertures unless you are going to hold it right up to your eye. The regular G3 and the Sig 550 have at least one open notch, I am assuming principally for low light conditions.

    On the MP5 that's not really the case, they are much, much more open than the 2,3 and 4 positions found on HK and SIG rifles. On 91/G3s and 93/33 you need that open sight because the other positions are fine tuning. On MP5/94s the widest aperture is pretty fast.

    That said, I once put a G3 drum on a MP5 and it was pretty nice.
