    Finishing up trying to make sure my MP5K-PDW has as many factory parts as possible. To my surprise, the factory marked folder has a more positive lockup than the standard choate. Really makes no sense since they're both made by choate. Perhaps it was used when I got it.

    Anyway, my forward grip has a slight amount of play. Not sure if it's just the nature of a sheet metal gun or if I'm using an aftermarket forward grip unbeknownst to me.

    Anyone know if this marking is German or US? Marked 3JC

    I was always under the impression that the HK grip only had a rectangle shape "pressed" into the grip. Yours clearly shows a date. Must be an HK?

    It is German but the new ones are tighter so if you are unhappy with the fit get a new one.

    The backplate on the hk marked stock is different. Fits better.

    I noticed the sling swivel is in a different position too.
