I bought three of the turkish "mke" mp5 flats back in the day. At the time I had no idea the higher quality LSC flats were on the horizon.

I paid at least 3x what LSC flats currently go for each flat. Dayammm. Well maybe not that much for one of them i think.

If I could go back, I would do it exactly the same way, because I value authenticity that much. Nothing against the LSC flats, its just a collector thing. The old "mke" flats were very high quality and made on legit hk tooling, the closest thing you could get to factory hk aside from an hk94.

That being said, in light of the new LSC flats, are people still looking for, buying, trading, "mke" flats? Do they still command a premium?

I'm not sure if I want to sell any, maybe I might let loose of one. Just curious about their current market status though.

And yes, it's been a long time since I posted on hkpro. Got bit by the ak bug a while back. Still love my hks though.

I don't see them being worth anything more than an LSC. Wait for the builders to pipe up though. They know more than most about flats.

I'd be the wrong guy to talk to also. I prefer to buy the flats as ready to weld on receivers... ready to go. Flats don't blow my skirt up. Somebody will go for them, tho'... where are all the MKE fanboyz?

I have also only used the MKE flats and would say that there are people out there who would pay the premium as they are HK licensed flats. The most recent one I purchased for 280.00 and thought I got a deal. CHOPSTIX kid ( joe at Dakota Tactical) can build on them and it will come out mint. I would say the market would be 275-325 on one if you were to sell.

Those who say they want one but wouldn't Pay more than the current LSC price probably will never own one. Remember not too long ago the LSC flats were 300.

So the LSC flats are more popular due to price alone? Most of who I talk too prefer the LSC flats over the MKE. On a $3,000+ gun, I don't think the small price difference between the 2 flats are a deal breaker.

NO... the LSC flats are more popular because they're still being made. The MKE things were a couple time thing...

Old thread I know. Anyone know how many of these MKE flats were made / imported and a rough guestimate on how many unaltered flats might be left?

And.....would it be considered by most here sacrilegious to turn one of these into a reverse stretch being that these are licensed HK flats and a reverse stretch was never a factory gun?
