If the bolt slides freely back and forth it shouldn't be a problem, but I wouldn't be happy with the dent in a new gun. It doesn't look like a tool mark to my untrained eyes.
Hello HK PRO,
I recently purchased a SP5K and quickly was bitten by the rollerlock bug. After researching online about MP5 clones I decided to purchase one of the more well touted imported clones. I'm planning on doing form 1's on both the SP5K and the clone, but after I received the clone I found a defect on the gun that was concerning.
There is a small dent in the inside of the roller channel. I sent the gun back to the manufacturer for warranty inspection and I was hoping for a replacement. After spending $2000 on a firearm I expect a certain level of quality. The manufacturer contacted me and said I will never have any issues with this gun and that it was a tool mark that won't cause any issues.
I'm well versed on the AR15 platform, but I'm still learning about rollerlocks. I know there are many smart people on Hk Pro when it comes to the MP5 platform so I wanted to get some additional opinions on it.
Agreed....It should not have that obvious a dent. Unfortunate they won't make it right with no questions asked, If I may ask, which manufacturer?If the bolt slides freely back and forth it shouldn't be a problem, but I wouldn't be happy with the dent in a new gun.

Is there a symmetrical mark on the other side?
If you feel the inside bearing area of the rail, is it noticeable? rough? Pushing inward?
If the answers are no, you will probably have no issue at all with it and it is cosmetic only.
Not saying that it deserves to be there at all, just calling it what it actually is.

Thanks. I'm just gonna try to talk with them again and explain my concerns. They said they would extend my warranty for an additional year to six years, but I'm doing a form 1 on this gun and will be using a trigger pack so if something does happen at that point a new gun won't help much. They seem to have many happy customers so I don't want to post on a bunch of forums. I did post on another popular forum, but got zero feedback from the members there as it's not a HK specific website.Maybe start a thread on every gun forum? Not advocating trouble, just trying to help op.
The carrier is getting hung up and the rollers are trying to engage outside the trunnion. I had this issue on a home build, the cause for me was the shell deflector was hanging too low and caused the carrier to get hung up.. It's actually bad and can cause catastrophic failure if it's not addressed.
Without it being in front of me, it's likely the cause. See if it hangs up on shell deflector. Keep in mind you need to put upward pressure on it. Outward dents on rail are bad news.Are you saying that's what caused the dent? Thanks.
I don't think the question of whether a corresponding 'roller mark' exists on the left side of the firearm. Can we get a pic of the other side?
What was their resolution to the problem?Zenith has taken care of the issue and far exceeded my expectations. They've gained a customer for life.
Yeah, he kind of forgot the most important part.What was their resolution to the problem?
