I should stop following this thread. I didn't even know I wanted a 53 until just now. Really awesome builds.

My MP5 kit has been sitting around for a few months now while I wait for a good deal to pop up for a tig welder. Then it'll probably still be a little while before I practice enough to be confident on it. I haven't done any tig since high school.

I'm curious, what did you use for the cocking tube and support? Were you able to get away with modifying 33 front end parts?

I wanted a 53, then I didn't. Maybe I think I want one again. Yours came out very nice, congrats!

Any plans to build a G36 or UMP now that there are receivers? Or just roller lock guns?

...MP5K?

For the cocking tube I bought a US made one from HKparts.net, the hole for the cocking support was slightly off too.

I used a 53 cocking support. I lucked out and found a 53 bolt, carrier and cocking support for cheap. My whole 53 build came in around $1000.

The 53 is an awesome gun. Itís definitely in the top for my favorite gun. Itís extremely well balanced.

Why do you do this too me?!?!?!?

MP5K..... yes, I am very slowly piecing one together. Iím going to do a reverse stretch MP5K.

UMP... I really want too, I wish I would have bought some parts kits when they were cheap. I definitely see a UMP45 in my future though. Iím just not sure how far in the future.

G36.... I wish but how pricey they are I doubt I will. I would be happy just to pick up a SL8.

Right now Iím tooled up for 90 series rifles, unfortunately I have almost built all variations of 90 series rifles. I have a G3K coming up and another G3 and hopefully the MP5K by next year.

Richard. Nice...31? 33? Whatever number it is that short. Cant wait to see the G3k.
Itís almost done, gonna test fire tomorrow and then drill and pin the front sight.
Then I will parkerize and paint it.

This G3K turned out pretty nice. Thanks for kit to build this. I have been wanting a K.

Holy sheeeet!! Look who it is posting things of content, instead of wigs on his side mirror.

All jokin aside,

Yeah, itís the same for a Cetme. Same style of flat, same bending jig. If you need any help or have any questions feel free to PM me.

Well, this will be my last build for a while. It’s almost done just need to weld the rear pin weldment and finish it. I had another kid so my free time is limited.


It’s just a basic G3 with original barrel.

In the future I plan on a MP5K reverse stretch build but that will be a while.

I finally got around to finishing the G3. Blasted, parked, and painted. I just need to paint the selector markings. I wanted to do this build in a blue grey paint but I still have a bunch of black paint left.
