    Default MP5K

    Hi,

    I'm new here... but a long way fan of HK.

    My first contact with the brand, was with a VP9 3 years ago, replacing a Sig P229 9mm. Why I move to it? because the weight and trigger system. Oustanding.

    Now I'm looking an USP 9mm... I hope to get it after make some savings...

    Finally... I wold like some help with a MP5K, because after watch same pictures of others MP5, I'm not sure if this one is a clone... I would like to read same help, and if it isn't an original HK, any idea of it "version" would be great. What I'm sure is that it was made around 1977...

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you in the US? The color and the 'K' in 'Kal 9mm' suggest it's HK, but in the US the right side of the magazine well would be engraved. I'm sure you know this already, but that looks like a machine gun receiver.

    Look for a stamping that looks like an antler. Also, look at the barrel for markings.

    Hi Eodinert... thanks for your help.

    I couldn't find any other mark on the magazine well... or any other area of the receiver, except the serial number (just four numbers - no pre-digits).

    I'll try to get some pics of the barrel.

    The right side of the magwell as mentioned is missing the normal engraving indicating who the importer is along with city and state.
    Serial number engraved on top of the receiver is usually accompanied by a Hk nomenclature expressing the date the weapon was made.

    Since the weapon is obviously a full auto push pin receiver with no mag block there should be NFA paperwork for the weapon. You did not
    mention there being any? If it were me I would want to see it. Frankly, I probably would walk away from this as it does not appear "kosher".

    99.9% sure he isn't in the USA.

    Clearly you've never spent much time in New York.

    That clinches it though.
    Own: HK91, SR9, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, 2x P8, 2x P8A1, USP9
    Future: Done, until HK comes out with something new & nifty. Might start building an FNH collection.

    Agreed on not in the states. The pics are coming up distorted on my iPad, but from what I can see, it does at least look HK factory, but the blank right side mag well bothers me. Not expecting anything fancy, but based on the “kal” and the serial number I would think at least “Made in W. Germany” should be somewhere?

    My location guess is Germany or Switzerland--- so no markings on the right receiver!!!
    The serial numbers on the very, early MP5K's (early 1970's) were 5-digit, followed by 4-digit--- also, caliber markings and blue-gray finish are correct.
    The bolt head is HJ (79), with the "B" inside the circle, which seems to indicate a former LE/MIL weapon.
    PM to you, once you have 5 posts.

    You guys are good at picking up the little details. I’m going to go with Switzerland since it looks like OP is wearing a Omega Seamaster based on the bracelet.
