    Why did you unpin the front sight tower?
    He who walks unarmed into paradise had better be sure that is where he is.

    Barrel change. I went no loop because I am keeping it a pistol. The SP5K handguard won't fit with the loop. If you are going to SBR I would recommend the loop.

    Forgive my ignorance but what is the difference between an SP5K barrel and an MP5K barrel?

    Nothing, but an MP5k(or SP89) PDW has a longer threaded three lug barrel.

    Correction to my original post. Strange thing I hadn’t noticed before. When I said the two guns sent to HK for the PDW barrel swap didn’t have sling loops, I was wrong. These guns were sent in together, in the same box. Just noticed one has a sling loop, one does not. Guess they were just pulling parts randomly, I had absolutely no communication with them at the time regarding the loop.

Someone posted here a few years ago that gave an explanation (that I have since forgotten) what determined which got the loop. It was something like, guns going to certain LEO groups got the loop, others did not, but that’s not quite correct. I can tell you, I have a PDW barrel that came from an LEO gun with the loop, but two other PDW barrels from HK’s barrel swap that do not.
