I'd like to build an MP5 and a G3 eventually. Anyone ever done one?
My experience with HK-pattern guns not actually made by HK is that it's a shady industry and very hard to actually end up with a quality final product.
Special Weapons/Top Notch and that whole conspiracy/fuckfest.
yeah it seems like a real bitch. is this for the g3, mp5, or both?
oh yeah i read a little about that.
i think i'll just buy the kits and receivers and build them when i can spend the money to do them right.
That's something I didn't know.
All I know is that I have met Todd Bailey and that whole thing is a complete disaster.
I once ordered an MP5 stock from Black Market Parts, they sent me a HK91 stock with the recoil spring and rod which was $169 more than the MP5 and then illegally charged me the extra amount and said they'd refund it when I sent it back.
Fuck those idiots.
yeah PTR's run about 1.3k i guess. not too bad.
Damn, I'd love to have a MP5/10 clone.
damn i really want a ptr91 now
One of my buddy's friend is an HK building machine. He does realllly nice work, they are very fun to shoot.
cool, thanks for the advice
Damn, what a dick.
Thanks for the warning about that guy though. You probably saved someone on here some money and time.
Keesh you need a '51. For a range toy, I always thought one of those would be completely tits. Big boom, big flash, and the guy over will likely have ever even heard of it.
Special Weapons is famous for fucking over the Taiwanese Police.
H&K refused to sell to Taiwan because it was a "potentially unstable" area or some other bullshit. Obviously to please China.
The Taiwanese police forces ended up buying the Special Weapons MP-5 clones, and they were disasters. Jam-o-matics. Local media caught wind of it and blew it up into a big controversy... especially when gangsters frequently get drunk at Karaoke bars and get busted with H&K MP-7s and FN P90s.
"Our criminals have weapons light years ahead of our police! blah blah"
Special Weapons has a mixed reputation. Some folks on the internet love em to death. I'd be careful.
When I get home I'll post up a pic for ya
fuck now i cant decide between a ptr and an m14
where can one get these $3 mags?
a JAE-100 M14 would be so awesome though
not even a grand more
even cheaper than dirt has $3 mags
