    Default German MP5K cocking resistance extremely high?

    Has anyone ever operated a German MP5K? Can anyone confirm how much More resistance manual charging should have compared to the regular mp5's ?

    I have a German K that requires a lot of force to pull the cocking back, especially the last 10%.

    Functions flawlessly though

    Shouldn't be any more than an mp5. Should be really easy. Wonder if the recoil rod is bent?

    It functions fine, manually cycling is another story

    I tried removing the trigger pack and manually cycling and the resistance was significantly less

    THINK may be the hammer but if there was that much resistance it should not cycle when it fires but it does that just fine

    Sounds like you’re on the right track, check the hammer and ejector.

    Been busy with work, finally got more time to poke around with this gun

    Basically it appears to be the trigger pack, when removed, its a lot easier to cycle the bolt manually.

    Im not really sure whats causing all the resistence.

    When furing at the range it cycles fine,

    Has anyone ever maually cycled a MP5K and MP5 and compared?

    Does your trigger pack have a 9mm hammer spring or by chance a .223 or .308 hammer spring? Some people swear a rifle hammer spring helps but I've always went with the correct hammer spring accordingly.
    I sold my HK's and bought a whole bunch of Century C93s. The best rifles on the planet bar none. I love the C93 pistols with the 12 o' clock slot!

    @jfk I'm sure it's 9mm. I tried a different pack from another armorer yesterday and same thing.

    I think it may be the cocking tube support bring a bit thick or tube slightly bent.

    The gun cycles fin when fired.
