    Zenith trigger pack is made in the US? I would have thought Turkey.

    You can always get an A3 stock later, eventually I'm sure production will increase and they'll be available for reasonable prices.

    I have both and I never even use the A3 stock. It's cool, but it's not as comfortable and the gun looks great with the A2.
    2nd on the A3 stock not being the go to. I prefer the folding stock. You can get one made by B&T for half the price of the A3.

    I checked on Zenith website. They sell trigger, sear, and hammer as individual parts. 922r compliant. It says made in USA, and same as what HKparts sells. It's unclear to me who actually makes these parts. They don't have a drop-in trigger pack though.

    According to the Zenith website, the 922r parts are made by PTR. I think that the Zenith pistols come with full MKE parts and that the 922r parts are only factory installed in the Zenith 16” rifles since rifles have to be compliant. Pistols do not.
    Do you even HK, Bro?

    Man, if that ever flies, there would be a ridiculous caseload for all the tons of guys with braced 11" AR pistols next to their 16" ARs and folding stocks in the safe. Endless intent everywhere.

    My intent was not to not stir the "922r" or "ATF" pot. It can be redirected back to the OP in a healthy way with cost-effective solutions to help get an SP5 stamped.

    All the ATIs Ive seen are $450-500. Anything HK even in terrible condition is $500+, many on gunbroker are $800+ auctions with no buy it now. Im going to list it and think about it. A2 stock would be easier to shoot, but in my mind, Die Hards variation of the MP5 is the ONLY way to fly...

    Got my sp5k and I sunk in another $600 with in the following month for all the fun upgrades and accessories. Did not learn my lesson and got the sp5 when it first become available. Another $400+ into the fun parts and stuffs. Just do whatever you like. Resistance is futile.
    My friend told me.

    I feel your pain:
    B&T 3-lug barrel: $399 (I know...)
    Barrel swap: $500
    Stocks: $275 for folding, $450 for B&T telescopic
    Aimpoint T1 and mount: $600
    front grip: $50
    Form 1: $200

    Totally NUTS!
