MP5K Machine Gun....Notice anything?

Hey Guys:

I've only seen one other MP5K that looked like this. I've "heard" the rationale behind it being this way, but would rather those that actually know detail. What's missing and why is it missing? Is this rare? Thanks in advance.

I would think the lack of sights would make it less likely to snag when being deployed from concealment.

I too would like to here from someone in the know.

Pretty sure I have seen pics in the past. Cool to see it again, thanks for posting.

For a short time, HK offered the K in that configuration; no rear sight and just a front blade for maximum concealability.

^^^ This.

The SAS for one did this. You can see videos on YT that show them with K's set up like that.

I seem to remember that during the development of the k, this was the original (or one of) configuration. It was all an attempt to compete in the personal protection segment with the likes of MACs and mini UZIs. Years ago I into some SP89 prototypes at a Virginia gun show, at least one of which had these sights.

You are correct, Sir!

Thanks guys for the input. I was told a very similar version. No rear sights, for easier concealment and less "snag".

Was this at the Gray Room??? :biggrin:
Do you remember the serial number/markings? :wink:

Tony
It was at a Virginia gun show. Dealer had five different prototypes, each marked or configured differently. Documentation from HK as to their individual authenticity. This was when the going rate for a sear was about $5k (so how long ago?). He wanted $6k each or all five for $25k. I remember the sear price because I equated the price for all five prototypes as equal to five sears. Sears turned out to be a better buy. Not sure I could precisely remember the differences between the five, let alone serial number sequences or prefixes.
