Is there such a thing as an mp5 build? Does anyone ever work on them and build them like aks? I saw mp5 reciever sheets that have to be folded and welded.

Yes, but very expensive, and not easy like an AK or AR

They can be expensive and require greater attention to detail. It does take a greater skill set to work on since welding is involved.

While you're at it, why don't we have a BMW build party! Then we can hold a "build your own" nuclear reactor party!

Some things can't (and shouldn't) be built in your garage.

dont be suprised if some agents from "rogue nations" join up on Calguns and start sending you PM's about the build party ;)

cool dj an dj, i am glad you know how to answer an honest question without being a wise guy, i am sure you must have taken the build party for being a jerk, ahahhahah! now that was funny. thanks everyone else, i was just curious and it makes sense.

HK Parts.... a Calguns advertiser has flats and complete kits available now.

Watch for full auto bolts etc. as this may become your worst nightmare.

cool prodrive! is it even worth looking into going through this process or do you feel like your already over your head?

What is your ultimate goal? To have an hk style firearm, or to build one?
If you just want to own one, just buy it.
Otherwise you may want to visit some of the hk forums.

As nice as they may be, it is very expensive. I have been on the ropes for a while about getting one, but the price tag always comes to mind.

I may be wrong but it may be because of the size requirement here in CA? Not sure...

They sell .22 MP5 at Big 5 and pretty much every gun store. 10 round mag. WAHOO

German MP5 parts kits start at $1500 and go up from there. Some folks convert the much cheaper HK33 kits to HK53 specs and build it as a pistol to retain the short barrel. HK33 parts kits start at $399 with us made 16" barrel. You need to have access a flat bending jig, hydraulic press and welder (tig or mig) among other tools to complete.

Doesn't seem any harder then any other gun. Just gotta pay attention and make sure to get everything straight and lined up correctly before welding.

I've wanted to build one but the welding scares me off each time I get serious about it. Although the one I want to build would be a 10mm, not a 9mm or .40 :D

That's the way to do it.....an expensive as all hell gun with even more expensive ammo.....I applaud your sir:clap:

I reload :D

A SBR 10mm MP5 with my long slide G20 and my personal reloads...that's a happy thought

My ultimate SHTF load out is a Mech Tech CCU and a G20. Up close, you got that hand gun, and long range, swap uppers and reach out and touch something.

NO, they really are harder to build. The machining and tolerances on HK weapons are much tighter than AK's. I have a Vector clone that even after 4 trips to the factory won't run 100% - and Vector had a much more sophisticated operation than any "build party" you will ever see.

Go over to HK pro. The board is replete with posts about clones (built by real companies) not running correctly.

25,000 smoke detectors with Americium 133 chambers and it's a start.

I've worked with more complicated machines with tighter tolerances then an HK before. I'm not scared of a challenge, it's the only way to broaden my skills.

Sorry to hear about the problems with your Vector clone. I myself have been pretty lucky with my Vector 93. Had it for about 1 year now. Take it to the range every chance i get. I had maybe one or two failures to eject out of the 400 or so rounds. I blame it on my substandard reloads.:o


I been pretty "lucky" with my own 53 clone build aswell. So far so good, with the bolt gap set at .018", #15 locking piece used, functions as it should. Goes "bang" everytime i pull the trigger. Not rocket science to build these weapons.
