The ejector lever in my MP5SD recently broke (Flemming sear gun), and I ordered a current generation replacement that is labeled to be for the HK94 and MP5. However the new lever is a bit longer than the old one (see photo showing the original, broken lever below the new, longer one).

Is the new, longer lever correct for my MP5?

Thanks.

Never seen one break. I have only seen them wear and develop a shiny wear mark at the rear and front tip.

Yours has a strange wear pattern towards both the front and rear like it was contacting the trigger frame. Does your pack have any side to side play or your bolt head any unusual wear marks from contacting the ejector lever? Looking at the picture of the one you broke it looks like it was possibly from the bolt head impacting it as it encountered some type of lateral resistance possibly due to some type of deflection (maybe some side to side play of the grip frame) and then shore it off.

Yeah, no kidding. That's a lot of wear on the side. I'd be very suspicious about alignmrnt. The inside support is just bent metal from the pack frame, and it can get widened from excessive force, especially after the ejector loses alignment and misses the channel in the bolt head a few times.

We have seen quite a few HEAVILY used MP5's that had broken ejector levers. There are actually 3 generations of German ejector levers. Only the German's use the correct 3rd Gen ejectors while the Pakistani's still use 1st gen (most common to have reliability issues and fail), the 2nd gen ejectors were only used for a few years and were replaced with the 3rd gen which has been in use for at least a decade now. Even on factory HK guns they fail from time to time but for the most part they last a long time. When they do break most of the time we have seen it happen is where the bend is up front.
