    Default New SP5K, can no longer install paddle magazine release! FYI

    Following the steps by @bystok but my gun looks like it already has a bushing or something in the place where it should be empty and new paddle assembly installed. This is a brand new gun so nobody has jacked with. got it straight from my dealer any help appreciated.

    What a bummer. For once am disappointed in this HK purchase. For reference mine is a BK date code. buyer beware if your considering purchasing get an older date code!

    NOTE: upon closer inspection this does not look like a bushing. It looks like a permanent blocking inserted to prevent the paddle magazine release. Has a slight bit of overspray from black paint on it.

    That sucks if they changed things. I wonder what else may be different.

    Just checked mine (BH date code). No block or obstruction noted like yours. I wonder if Michael's Machines @hk21man or any of the other smiths have experience removing this with their paddle-install service?

    Wow. When did they start doing this? Is there changes to the shelf too?

    Didn't the very early SP5Ks lack the receiver block for the carrier?

    Yeah unfortunately from the looks of it, there’s no way to install the paddle mag release. I’m not sure what HK’s thinking was on this mod.

    Alternatively, you might be able to sell your SP5K and go with something like a Zenith Z5P. They are pretty good from what I hear and have a paddle mag release already installed along with Threaded barrel. Additionally, they use a real pin to attach the trigger pack instead of just a shelf.

    Now, they are made in Turkey by MKE but use HK tooling. Not real German production I know, but this gun may get you exactly what you want and can be found for as low as $1600 some places.

    Here is a good video review:

    It doesn't look like it's welded. Have you tried disassembling it?

    Wow.

    That's a pretty uncool move on HK's part.

    Actually going to the extra effort to block something harmless that customers absolutely want to do??

    That's pretty dumb.
