    Default B&T releases MP5 retractable stock

    For everyone interested, I pulled this information from thefiremanblog. Interested to hear everyones opinion on this stock. I think its awesome personally and wanted to share.

    "Despite its advanced age, the HK MP5 is still in use by many police agencies worldwide.

    As part of the Mid-Live-Improvement, many users have upgraded and retrofitted the weapon in recent years with B&T parts (handguards, optical mounts, etc.).

    At the same time, various authorities have repeatedly asked B&T for a well thought-out telescopic stock. Since B&T offers such a telescopic stock for its own APC, the request was gladly granted.

    The new B&T telescopic stock for the MP5 is convincing in all areas. It is up to 62 mm shorter than known shoulder rests when inserted, it can be pulled out immediately without using a lever and it has 3 locking positions for optimal adaptation to the shooter and its equipment.

    In addition to these improvements, B&T has also succeeded in reducing the weight of the shoulder stock to 495 g, which is between 21 % and 47% lighter than comparable shoulder stocks."

    What is wrong with the original HK stocks ? People balk at paying HK price , do you think they will pay $700 for the Swiss made stock ?

    Cause no one has ever paid to put a high $ B&T product on an HK before?

    Looks like B&T is up to taking that challenge worldwide...some will bitch while others will spend! JAT

    I don't like the look of those personally. The HK stock is classic and looks much better.

    I was thinking the same thing.
    I don’t like AR stocks on HK’s either. Doesn’t look right to me.

    Agree, looks very off, I will pass.

    HK should do a run of the classic ones and at a fair price, this forum alone would have them sell out.

    If you don't like the aesthetics, that's understandable. But to say it offers no benefit is a blatant lie and show of bias and nostalgic reaction. The new B&T stock is lighter than the original collapsible stock and has three positions, something many people have been wanting for decades and the only way to achieve it was to modify the original stock. Not everyone wants to modify parts nor pay the money to modify it, nor should they have to. Now they don't. B&T is a fantastic company and they know what they are doing. I honestly don't even think that the stock looks that much different from the original, at first glance they are very similar aesthetically.

    Lighter weight which is good, but that buttpad looks a bit small? Maybe it wouldn't be an issue, A2 is best anyway.
