Was there ever any factory MP5SD's available for public consumption?

Thanx, Axe

I would say no. They should all be pre-may dealer samples. I highly doubt any slipped by.

It was designed in 1974 so it could not have been imported for civilian sales/use after 1968.

Since the SD didn't exist until after '68, there's no possibility a factory SD would be transferable to us regular folks.

An HK factory MP5SD gun itself is a "Post Sample" while the suppressor is a "Pre Sample". That said, here is my Qualified RR PP MP5SD. It is as close to HK factory I have ever fired. Actually, the Qualified suppressor is quieter than the HK suppressor.

Thanks for all the input. Friend of a friend is getting a "MP5SD" (transferable suppessed submachine gun) for legal fees payment but havn't got the complete scoop on what exact it is really.

RTDS in Cave Creek does some amazing SD clones, axehole. Pretty close to "Central Arizona" I reckon!

RDTS's work is great... they could use a tune up on their delivery times, however... :biggrin:

The only way for a civilian to own a non-post sample MP5SD is to have a conversion done with a transferable sear by the the likes of RDTS. FWIW, I have one of RDTS's MP5SD conversions and the gun not only looks like the real deal but functions flawlessly. Highly recommended.

Nice, I've heard nothing but praise for their work, I'll have to get one some day! I wonder if they would do one in .40.
My buddy has been talking to him about a .40 I believe he will do it.

Bought my Pre '86 dealer sample in 1992 NIB for $1,600, shot it for a bit then thought real hard and sent it to RDTS for an SD conversion. Got it home and installed a three shot lower, and never regreted it! The receiver is stamped 12/72. No lugs are on the receiver, so no optics for me. LOVE the SD!


Good luck!

Tune up on turnaround time? Try 2 weeks last spring for a full blown 53 with 93 rec. conversion, and a 94 mp5 sd conversion he. I could not believe how fast he and his sons did both of my guns! Ralph is one of the best guys on the planet. He has educated me a lot on HKs.
