    Default MP5 telescoping stock length question - I'm Stumped

    Cant figure it out.

    There's a huge gap between my butt bad and the end cap. But, there's a notch that is present in order to do so.

    For reference, this gun has probably been in this configuration for a long time assuming the stock was installed when the gun (HK94) was K'd and remarked "MP5K" in the 80's when the sear was registered and installed.

    So.... it's a reverse stretch HK94 re-marked back in the 80's.

    Here's the gun as is.


    Here's the notch that stops the arms from ramming into the receiver.


    With the notch, it stops here.


    Without the notch, it stops here.


    My questions were:
    1. Could it be for a 93 series? Maybe... but, the notch would still create the gap (as in, it was created to make that gap).
    2. Why is there a gap (caused by the notch, and, even if you surpass the notch... Technically, the arms of the stock are also too long.

    Wow, that is very odd! I would have said 93, but rail has BHO cutout and butpad lacks sling loop.

    That's easy, universal stock fork on a standard 9mm A3 backplate. Couldn't have been from the 80's because there were no 10mm or .40S&W guns and so no BHO cut stocks.

    To clarify, it's a frankenbuilt stock with what is likely a 93 Fork/butt?

    No the "universal" stock fork. The Universal stock, despite what some will tell you, is only for pistol calibers but will work for all MP5 variants because of the BHO cut out. It was a precursor to the F stock and has a similar LOP. They also share the longer extended backplate/buffer but yours doesn't have that.
