    I have seen some 4 positions, however I can't say for sure if they were "factory notches" or cut into a 2 position and refinished.

    The stocks from Numrich, you can be assured are Genuine HK. Them and IMA-USA are the gold standard for surplus firearm parts.
    I ordered one of these from Numrich just recently and it came in a clear plastic bag. No HK markings at all and no date codes which I see from this thread are no longer relevant. However my concern is it does not fit properly on my PCS full size clone properly. Push pin is very tight getting through second hole in receiver no matter how many times I have tried adjusting the stock to make sure it is fully seated to receiver. I have to use rubber mallet to tap pin in or out. Anybody else have issues with this stock and push pins? Wondering if I should return the stock since it just came in a plastic bag with no HK markings.

    Yes HK does make A3 "F" stocks with 4 position from the factory: https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/MP5-...on-5p17614.htm

    1999 according to this article: http://www.smallarmsreview.com/displ...darticles=3114

    What I'd like to find out instead is when the 4 position stocks were first introduced if anybody knows?

    There have been a variety of changes to the MP5 A3 stocks over the years. To the best of my knowledge, none of them had a convex shape to the butt plate. Even the prototype MP 64 had a concave shape.

    One of the earlier A3 stocks had an all metal receiver end cap. Then, HK switched to a metal end cap where the rear portion of the end cap was plastic. HK also came out with a "universal" buttstock that had slightly longer forks and the bolt hold open cutout. This was intended to be used on both the .223 guns as well as the MP5 series. On an MP5, the longer forks would not let the stock fully retract. HK produced both the earlier A3 and subsequent "F" stocks with, and without a bolt hold open cutout. Then there is the multi position F stocks. Actually never had one of those, I have too many A3s as it is. There may be more versions, but that's all that come to mind.
