    Default Why is hk releasing the sp5k with that crappy optics mount

    To me at least it would seem that HK should have released the SP5K with an optics mount that is appropriate for absolute front sight co-witness like the BT-10266 for aimpoint t1 instead of the knuckle scraping mount that wont let you use sights with your optic. I know its a specific mount but jeez it does not seem like a stretch to have HK lengthen that design a bit so you could use more than just a T1.

    it's about the money. they in all probability got those kind of mounts for a song, then added a additional hundred or so bucks to the price of the gun

    It's just case candy. And a nice case too, though that probably won't be usable once it gets turned into a pdw. Just a quick option for those who would ask how they can mount their red dot to it, or why x other PCC has Tactical rails but none on the sp5k. Obviously people are going to get their preferred mounts, this is just the freebie option, like the zenith included extras. I hope it still has the handy this way forward arrow, I hate to get confused...

    yes indeed you are correct...its obvious that I need to embark on a course of Self-flagellation in order to prove my worthiness in order to obtain a trance like oneness with the perfect SP5K optics mount

    Here we go not even in hand yet and the "How Come" threads begin. I will answer why though. Because they do it their way. I like their way.

    I think HK anticipates that lots of folks (especially outside of the roller-lock game) will complain about not being able to put their favorite optic on the sp5k. So with this mount people have an option from the get-go. No one wants to use the original G3-style clamp, most other mounts would be too specific, and people like me would hate a permanent rail. So it makes perfect sense to me.

    If it helps the sales and make a little more money per unit, just do it?
