The '53 handguards are longer, I do not know by how much though.

Thanks for clearing that up for me :). I was kinda wondering why my VECTOR 53 didn't look quite right compared to the pictures of other 53s. I though that maybe the front of receiver was longer then a 53 receiver, now I know that they used a MP5 handguard for them, because it looks excatly like the first picture. In fact, I have the same exact kind of collapsable stock that you have on mine as well.

Gordon Miller has both lenghts slotted and not. HKspecialist.net. Adam Weber may have then too. HKparts.net. Chief, what IS that group and the optic on your '53?

HKAZ, you can read a bit of more about that particular weapon here
And, no, I'm not the "anonymous source in Europe". ;)

I wish you were chef, or at least whoever it was would come forward and give some more detail on that very peculiar weapon system!

Hey Chef,

I saw you were in Sweden. You ever heard of a bed company called "Hästens"

It's based in Köping.


I own the Arizona dealership here in Scottsdale. All day long I see "Made in Sweden" or "By royal appointment of Swedish court." I was just up in Stockholm during the summer for a few weeks, you have a beautiful country.
