    Default Break-in period for SP5 prior to SBR

    Recently got an Sp5. Super pumped! Going to SBR it. Went and shot probably about 60 rounds at the range the other day with it and had zero issues. Fun gun that badly needs a stock or brace. :)
    Think I'm good to go with SBR'ing it or should I get more rounds down range to make sure everything is fine before submitting my Form 1?

    I filed the paperwork the same day I got it, went to the range the next day to shoot and ate 150rds without trouble. Shot about 500 more ever since, some suppressed, still has zero issue.

    I say unless something is obviously off why sit on it.

    the form 1 is a "permission slip". Having a form 1 doesn't make the gun a SBR, it is your PERMISSION to make it into a sbr.

    So submit the form now, keep using the gun, and if any issues pop up, resolve them. When you are comfortable proceeding, then get it marked, and put your stock onto it.

    Somewhere on another board someone asked why people choose the gunmaker and guns they do. When I bought my first HK, the guy at the LGS told me he couldn't say this about every gun in their inventory, but don't worry about any special prep or anything and just go shoot it. He was so confident he said he would buy it back if I had a problem. I've got a Sig, Walther, Ruger and a Colt - all of them have had some issue here or there during the first 6 months of "ownership". HK seems to avoid the problems every other gun experiences. I don't believe any gun should have a break in period.

    No break in needed. It’s an H&K, not a PTR

    I think the only reason to wait is if you want to remark it. I didn’t and efiled as soon as I had the serial number. This was the shortest turnaround for me ever... less than 4 weeks from acquiring to sbr. I did already have the stock from my clone sbr for immediate use :) and needed to visit my engraver on other business in that time frame anyway.

    Thanks everyone!
    Good point on the quality of Hk versus others. Never had an issue with my USP Tactical. Has run 100% from day 1.

    I think I’ll submit my paperwork tonight then! I’m pretty stoked for this gun! I’ve been a long time mp5 fan (too much rainbow six as a youth 😄 ).
    I wonder which will take longer the sbr paperwork or finding an a3 stock? 😛

    E-file will take longer. Plenty of A3 stocks out there...

    Starting at $500+

    eFile Forms 1 get approved much quicker than mailing them in. It took my 24 days to get both my 416 and SP5 SBRs approved.
