If you like more heft and metal over plastic, the HK is for you man.

Yup, one under the front sight and one on the rear of the gun where the stock connects to the receiver.

Not sure if you mean support arm or trigger arm... as an appleseed instructor, we teach the chicken wing on the trigger arm for unsupported shooting...

Whoever this guy is... he is doing it right


If you are trying to be tacticool and make your profile smaller, then more power to you... But using the method shown above, I can shoot about 3 moa unsupported at 100 yrds using my ar.

I've always felt more solid with my trigger arm pressed against my side (not out to the side).
I shake and sway much less. Maybe I'm just passing on my own habits to her.
Either way I could care less how I look, I thought it was the proper way since it actually helped my groupings.
Maybe I was holding out my arm wrong? I'm absolutely open to suggestions.

Do an Appleseed! Even if you are a decent shot now, you will learn a ton at an Appleseed. Just go into it with an open mind and listen to the instruction... Try it our way

Can you mount a pistol grip on the MP5?

I've been wanting one for my 22 caliber 3-gun matches.
But still can't find them here in So Ca.

$479 at Big 5 right now.
They aren't in the ad this week.
Last week they were in the ad for $499.

Dont know how long the $479 price is good for.

Anybody have any info on 25rd rebuild kits? Or converting your 10rd to a 25 for out of state usage?

I got mine at Big 5 in Folsom for $479. Everyone loves shooting it. Very accurate and a lot of fun.

My buddy tried my MP5 last week and immediately went out and bought one. He checked out the GSG too and wasn't interested.

Considering an MP5 SD glad to hear everyone's experiences with it. Big 5 still has a few. Riflegear had them on sale, but of course they are sold out.

Casper - you're set up looks sweet. I saw a GSG 5 at Martin B Retting and almost bought it, then looked around and found I liked the Walther one better.

Thanks. It really functions well in it's current set up and I find I barely use the magnifier really.

Glad you were able to check out the Walther before buying!
Hope this thread helps some people out.

Default Resurrection!

Hello!

I bought a HK MP5 .22 about a year ago. Love it. Its really fun once you can find a bunch of ammo to pour through it.
So far it eats everything Ive fed it, regardless of the brand. Its very accurate with the diopter sights, but what the heck. Its like putting an air foil on a Honda Civic! And unlike those air foils, these really do something.

I found this article a few months ago, and went searching for it again due to Caspers sweet set up on the sight and magnifier.

The sight/doubler selling now for under $200, as opposed to the$1200 three years ago, but have some shady reviews on Amazon. So I was wondering if anyone is currently using the rig originally out lined in this thread, and their results. Better inexpensive alternatives?

Its such a fun rifle to play with. Im sure there are far more people who own this plunker today, and far more mods. Id rather add to this article than start a new one. Let it be a journal for everyone now.


This is a pretty good thread for a legal short barrel conversion...


The full auto demo on youtube makes me giggle like a school girl..

My personal additions..
HK MP5 .22 & GSG5 Lighted Forearm
Single Point HK Sling
4 25 Round Magazines

MP5 Rail Mount by metaltech. Works very well. That being said, its short.May not hold offset or long accessorys. It costs $16, and the HK rail costs $99. Be aware of your needs and compare.

Looking for additions I bought a Barksa 4x30 IR Sight w/Green Laser & 140 Lumen Flashlight combo.
Too big and heavy for the .22lr. I still play with the sight on the..22. The laser went to my 9mm, and the flashlight is in my semi for pre trips in the dark. Not for the .22lr. It will fit, but its heavy, loose, and looks like the sail of a submarine when attached.

Thanks for reading!
