The rail mount should be left apart from the weapon at the factory, placed in a separate, foam cutout!!! :biggrin:

The rail rubbed off some of the finish at several places on my SP5K. It doesn't bother me because I know it will get a lot more wear over the years.

Put the rail back on if you wan to hide it.

Yup.. Guess I got an excuse to paddle mag it now
For what its worth that can be done without a refinish. TSC and a few others do it without touching the paint on the gun. They can even swap the barrel to a new b&t barrel or someone elses with 3 lug without a full refinish.

That's par for the course for that Mid-Life Crisis optic mount. These guns - particularly the -K versions - were designed for close quarters where an optic isn't needed an only adds weight. I can kinda see where it might make sense for a full-size MP5, or a '33/93/53, but aside from those, I took mine off and never intend to install it again.

I was very careful on disassembly, but you'll always have the 'moon-mark' on the top of the receiver lug where the clamp bolt rides down. Oh, well - shoot the hell out of it and enjoy it. The first scratch is the hardest, and after that nobody cares anymore.

Yup.. Already over it.. I guess shooting it will probably fix it anyways right..??

it's just like getting a new porsche and getting a knick or something. I'm a pretty anal retentive guy when it comes to tangible investment grade goods.

sharpie. no one will ever notice.
One of the first things I thought of tbh, in a joking sense.. I like to be an honest person though.. and I'd never dare take a sharpie to an HK.. rather live with the mar

Yup.. I think it's a stupid add on.. and they probably wanted to move extras.. I read the manual before removing it but I never messed with nor touched any mp5 hardware before.. Shot a cetme once though I think a few years ago.
