    Default MP5 Barrel Question?

    I am considering purchasing an MP5 barrel. It is in the white with all the right markings on it. The seller told me that he bought it in the 1980's. My question is, has anyone purchased a barrel like this in the 1980's?

    I have seen several barrels in the "white"--- HK91/HK93/HK94/SR9/MP5--- I recall in the "white" barrels being sold in the 1980's-1990's as replacement barrels!!!

    Cool

    Does it look like this?





    It has 12 flutes in the chamber as I am thinking that 16 flute barrels were not around then. Not sure. Maybe Tony knows?

    It looks like that except, it has an IG date code on it too.

    If you save the pic of the whole barrel and call it up making it bigger you will see the date code of the barrel is IG 3W. Probably the same as the one you are looking at.

    Either 1990 or 1991--- I do know that the 1991 (KB), HK94's came with the newer barrels with 16-flute chambers!!!
