I plan to add a light, laser & scope onto my gun and have found the following Tri-rail mount for the suppressor, but it only fits on a MP5SD, and a suppressor on 53 will more than likely have a larger diameter than the MP5SD suppressor correct?

I really like the design of that one, it looks solid and is aesthetically pleasing. If in fact it is not wide enough to slip over the 53 suppressor, is there any way to get one specially made that looks and acts in the same manner?

Maybe even just a double mount rail system since I plan on getting an Aimpoint to mount on a low-profile rail that is attached to the receiver, but that still leaves the light & laser to attach some how.

This is the low-profile mount, but it is for an MP5, are MP5's & 53 receivers the same width where this one would fit?...

Is there any Aimpoint that has a laser built in that isn't 8 Million US dollars? :)

This would then just leave me with figuring out how to mount the light.

I found a few other options of B&T rails, but it will prohibit me from putting on that classy looking SD handguard.

This is the only close alternative, but I would still like something that slips over the suppressor so I can have the original SD handguard...

I'm just a bit confused, because one is for a 51/53 model...

And the other is for an SD model...

But since I am in fact doing an SD, would I get the SD one and not the one for the 53? Because of the way the suppressor slides inside of it right?

I asked Jayson about the diameter of his .223 suppressor so I may add on the MP5SD Tri-rail mount and he said the following...

I am not sure, but I believe that mounts onto the cage of the SD receiver and not the suppressor. An SD suppressor is only about 46mm in diameter the cage would be about 57mm.

Also it would not be a good idea to mount anything to a suppressor.

How would that Tri-rail mount onto the cage of the SD receiver, wouldn't the SD handguard be in the way?

Per B&T's website, the max diameter of the Tri-rail is 57.5mm, so I guess it would fit on the cage if it is only 57, but just barely.

If it is not a good idea to mount anything to a suppressor, I would think that B&T would know that and design it so that it attaches to the gun by means of the cage then? I'm going to email them now, but if anyone knows in the mean time...

Any ideas?

Why isn't it a good idea to mount anything to the suppressor?
