I just picked up a Vector mp5 40 but its missing just a few parts i am looking for a .40 cal bolt head complete and a Hammer i didnt know if the hammer was the same as the 9mm. Is there anyone else besides HKParts.net and Robertrtg.com that would have parts.

Get a complete RCM .40 bolt head form HK Parts. The hammer is the same for all calibers. Hammer spring changes with pistol to rifle calibers

If your Vector is anything like mine, buy ALL the HK parts you can for it. I've replaced most everything inside and now the barrel believe it or not. I hope I can get it to work.

If you can afford hk go hk, but your not doing bad by any means with rcm parts. The hammers are the same though they use a different hammer spring by spec, but something that you could probably get by using a 9mmgreat for now. Get a german ejector while you are at it and pray you good one. Some a great some are picky. Mine is gtg, but can take a bit of break in and some people some tears and lots of $$ trying to troubleshoot and eliminate ftf/fte issues

Yeah, what he said! (i.e. buy the vector for the shell, and through everything else out.

Sometimes the front of the German carrier gets stuck on the smaller diameter charging tube. You might have to trim something to get the required clearance.
