    Not mine, no affiliation.

    Now that I look at them, I suspect they might be fakes. Can anyone chime in?

    “If you have an MP5, this is an item that should pique quite some interest!”

    Good luck with that fit, but I assume buyers are better informed than the seller. Man these are expensive!

    Good catch. At first glance I didn't catch that. Looks pretty close to the real deal.

    Are you saying that this is a "contract" case (?)--- I am not an expert on these:

    How are the "non-contract" cases marked?

    "Contract" is a term I use as I believe the ones with the phillips screws and ARMS mounts came out of Kuwait, think I read somewhere they were built for the Kuwaits not sure by who. Some ppl throw around the term Replica, I am by no means an Expert on them either but I thought "Fake" was a little harsh. I believe the originals were made with Slotted screws as indicated by my pics above and STanag mounts. So much talk of ppl laser engraving barrels and LEO mags who is to say Screws/mounts cant be replaced for authenticity? Here are a couple of articles with more details.

    Thanks--- added these to the data!!!
    Here is what I have surmised:

    b) “Operational Briefcases” (case made by Hofbauer to HK specifications; HK manufactured the handle and metal internals therein- 1. and 2.)

    1. markings (left upper corner inside the bottom of the case- circle with “>PP<””; upper left center of the top edge of the bottom of the case- “hofbauer D-82152 Planegg”; right upper corner inside the bottom of the case- circle with “0 upwards arrow 1” or “1 upwards arrow 0” inside circle with “1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12”; upper right corner of the top edge of the bottom of the case “Made in Germany”); 4 “-” flat head screws (2 each side) in plastic handle; hinges/keys are German-made; German Stanag mount; straight trigger arm (ambidextrous trigger pack housings or crooked (“3-arm”) trigger arm (SEF trigger pack housings); metal barrel shroud will not accept PDW barrels

    2. markings (left upper corner inside the bottom of the case- circle with “>PP<””; upper left center of the top edge of the bottom of the case- “hofbauer D-82152 Planegg”; right upper corner inside the bottom of the case- circle with “0 upwards arrow 1” or “1 upwards arrow 0” inside circle with “1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12”; upper right corner of the top edge of the bottom of the case “Made in Germany”); 4 “+” Phillips head screws (2 each side) in metal handle; hinges/keys are German-made; German Stanag mount removed by Kuwaitis, and replaced with ARMS Stanag mount in the U.S.; straight trigger arm (ambidextrous trigger pack housings or crooked (“3-arm”) trigger arm (SEF trigger pack housings); metal barrel shroud will not accept PDW barrels (Kuwaiti Contract)

    3. markings (left upper corner inside the bottom of the case- “?”; upper left center of the top edge of the bottom of the case- “?”; right upper corner inside the bottom of the case- “?”; upper right corner of the top edge of the bottom of the case “?”; 4 “+” Phillips head screws 2 each side) in metal handle; hinges/keys are U.S.-made; ? Stanag mount; straight trigger arm (ambidextrous trigger pack housings or crooked (“3-arm”) trigger arm (SEF trigger pack housings); metal barrel shroud will not accept PDW barrels (Todd Bailey/Special Weapons replicas)
