    Default My MP5SD Continuing Saga.

    It seems that I can never leave my MP5SD alone. For reference here are a couple of my previous 'SD episodes -
    https://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk-nfa-t...uppressor.html
    https://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk-nfa-t...-my-mp5sd.html

    I was scanning the NFA Sales forum on a well known firearms site and I noted a WTS HK Sales Sample MP5SD suppressor at a very reasonable price. I looked over the pictures of the suppressor being offered. It wasn't very pretty, but then again it was cheap. So what the hell, I bought it.

    Here are a few pics of the suppressor being offered:



    (Notice the missing finish in the knurled area and the scratches left of center)





    The seller eFiled the Form3 and I received the suppressor within a couple weeks. When It came in, I looked it over closely. There was minimal carbon buildup within its interior. In addition to the obvious scratches the exterior had finish missing on most high spots plus scratches at the muzzle. All of this indicated it was carried much more than actually used. I decided to see what I could do to make it appear prettier.

    Since this HK suppressor has an aluminum tube, I tried some Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black on a small scratch to see what would happen.


    Damn! The bare aluminum turned black and the scratch disappeared. I decided to attack the whole tube. I wiped the exterior with mineral spirits, let everything dry, and swabbed Aluminum Black over the entire thing. I let everything dry again and then re-wiped the exterior with mineral spirits for a second time. Here are my results:

    (The S&H rebuilt Qualified suppressor on the top and the S&H cleaning brush handle on the bottom)


    (The S&H rebuilt Qualified suppressor on the left)


    (The S&H cleaning brush handle with brush and Qualified suppressor on the left. S&H take down tool up front)

    All in all I impressed the hell out of myself.

    Very nice results. That wear on the muzzle cap looks typical. Even HK literature depicting operators has frequently shown worn muzzle caps, probably to give authenticity to the picture. Considering that HK recommends cleaning the suppressor by firmly tapping the muzzle on a block of wood to loosen buildup (from what I recall), it’s not surprising the finish takes a beating.

    edit: I like that S&H handle, still available?

    I have no clue. You need to contact Curtis Higgins and ask him.

    Per a PM request, here is my currently configured MP5SD. It is a fully transferable, Qualified built, registered receiver, push pin, weapon.


    The weapon has been updated by Mike Woodward with a real HK MP5SD suppressor cage and barrel. They were acquired from Gatewood Supply.


    The original Qualified suppressor has been rebuilt and updated by Curtis Higgins. It is shown above. That suppressor is now threaded to fit my HK factory barrel. In addition to the original Qualified suppressor and HK Sales Sample suppressor, I have a Knights Armament MP5SD wet suppressor for it.






    In keeping with the wet suppressor use, I have decided to keep the weapon configured with a three position Navy type trigger group with a left side extended selector lever. I also have a real HK optional MP5SD carrying case to haul the weapon around in. A real HK leather sling is also attached. Just because.


    I don't know what more I can for it.

    I talked to Curtis. He said he would make one for $70. However, he was going to be away until the end of August and to call him back then.

    Very nice; I'd love to see testing results (or hear your subjective feedback) for your different model suppressors. My SD is an RDTS build using the HE suppressor (with non-standard threading) so I haven't tried any of the other models (except a TPM suppressor on an APC9SD).

    I sense you’re looking for an impartial judge to declare this gun officially “done”, so I’ve just done that for you.

    You should call it quits for SDs and move on to something else, preferably something different so you aren’t tempted to revise your entirely done MP5-SD.

    If you need suggestions, how about a Shiloh Sharps in .45/70? You might enjoy falling block cannon breeches, loud cartridges, and very long range elevator sights because mister I think you have silent short range close-quarter battle needs thoroughly accounted for.
