    Default MP5 rear sight SP5k rear sight

    Is the rear sight on the MP5(shoulder fired) different than the rear sight on an MP5k or SP5k? Seems it should be but can't find a definitive answer. Thanks

    MP5k generally has a castle sight drum although you see many that have the diopter sight drum. MP5 has a full diopter sight. You can obviously use either on either gun and both drums have the same sight base.

    Thanks Veritas. The sight picture on the SP5K looks one way when shot as a pistol, then as you can imagine looks more open when shoulder fired set up as an SBR. Probably the diopter sight with 4 peep holes would solve the sight picture.

    The SP5K comes with the "castle" sight, as it is designed to be used as a pistol. If you employ it with a stock or brace instead, it is recommended to upgrade to the rear diopter drum. Be careful if you try to replace it yourself, as the springs and ball bearings within can be launched and lost easily if you don't know what you're doing.

    Thanks Marine 0303. Exactly as I suspected, the sight change.
