I owe a call to Jeff (GBear) however I have not had the time available to do just that. I need to get a few moments where I can really sit down and focus on what he has to say. With that being said I am looking at doing a custom mp5 build and had a few questions. I want to get a custom pistol built that is 922r compliant from the get go so that I can ultimately submit a form 1 for SBR in the near future. I understand the whole deal of having to maintain 6 US made parts when making a sporting rifle so I dont want to get into that but....

I can't get one of the mp5 parts kit from hkparts.net can I? Those are more geared towards someone who has a NFA sear right? Seems like if i spend close to two grand on one of those I would still have to spend money on extra parts and swap them out. Seems like a waste on genuine HK parts to me.

Would I just order all the separate parts from hkparts.net (keeping 922r compliance) and send them directly to Gbear? If so, where is a complete parts lists available for a normal MP5? I can't seem to find one anywhere. I can only find the 12 countable parts from the ATF.

I looked at chopstix builds but his pistols that have 922r compliance are a long wait from what he has told me.

Any insight/suggestions would be great!

Thanks

Jeff could have probably answered this in less time than it took you to post it :)
But I am always here to help when I can...

You can buy the kit from HKParts.net and replace 5 of the parts with U.S. made parts (the receiver will be part #6)

1) Hammer
2) Trigger
3) Sear
4) Charging handle (MP5 and MP5-N kits only)
5) Handguard
6) Receiver

This will allow you to use any stock you want as well as German mags. If you opt for an F kit, you can not use a U.S. made charging handle so you can use the U.S. made trigger box instead (assuming you use an SEF lower). If you want to use an ambi-lower, you'll have to use a U.S. made stock which does limit your options.

922r isn't required if you do a pistol build. That's how I did mine and plan to SBR it.
As soon as you SBR it, it will be. The OP is simply looking to have it 922r compliant so when he SBR's it, it will be ready to go.

ordering a kit from hkparts.net and having the buttstock present in my house PRIOR to being approved SBR would be along the lines of 'constructive intent' wouldnt it?

I'm not an attorney so I can really give you legal advice, but it more would apply if you had a completed firearm that it fits on. As a parts kit it is merely that, parts, since you can not readily assemble it into a firearm.

Parts kit and stock is fine. When you get the pistol build back, the stock better not be in your possession until you get the approved Form 1 back. You could also have them build it as an SBR and transfer back to you on Form 4. Then you can skip the SBR engraving and all that business.

thats a good point too but id rather shoot it as a pistol while I wait for form 1 to get approved :D
