But if you get 000550, keep me in mind. I really want that #.
Own: HK91, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, USP SD, USP9, USP9 FDE
Future: SP5? Assuming I can find an honest seller.
I concur that you might want to wait until the SP5L comes out so you can at least have an actual rifle and won't have the issues associated with a really long barrel extension / resale issues. Good luck!
Bobmo, I had a Cohaire with a pinned and welded faux suppressor. It didn't affect accuracy as far as I could tell. I sympathize, being a refugee from the PRK. Sounds like you're going to convert it to a long gun and probably run it featureless, not a bad choice considering the options. Should you ever make your own escape, you can sell it in CA before you leave and buy another in a free territory. Good luck with your project!
I own a Bobcat Weapon BW5FS with and pinned and welded/fixed faux suppressor. It is classified as a rifle, and I put an A-3 sliding stock on it. Mine will shoot 2-3in. groups @ 25 yards free hand, and that is plenty good enough for me.
Oh for the love of all that is holy, do NOT do things like that to an SP5.
