I can see a very brighte future of this project

It's not very often to see forum members cost pictures of their HK builds, due to the difficulty, most people send their HK builds to a smith.

Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see the finished product.

I got the whole front end welded on today and I'm working on cleaning up the welds to make them flush. The trigger group is just about done as well. I am building it as a pistol first then once I can get all the paperwork done I'll put a collapsable stock on it. It ought to have a great muzzle blast to it!!!

You may want to trim that piston down some more, it still looks too long.

SWEET! I need one.

Which locking piece are you going to use for it? Looks like it is going together quite nicely for you, good luck with it.

Hey, did you sleeve the barrel for the front sight base or did it fit tight with out one? If you sleeved it do you have some details on what you used? Thinking about doing a k version of my FMP.
Thanks

And nice work

The barrel itself was too big for the sight base. I machined it down on the lathe so there was a couple of thousanths of space in there. When I got everything where I wanted it I silver soldered it back in place on the barrel as was originally done by the factory. The barrel I have not had a chance to measure. A MP5 forearm fits tight on the front and there will only be enough length to get the flash hider on! It's getting closer all the time!

Looks great. I have a question about the buffer. How did you overcome the recoil buffer were it extends into the stock? I see its clean but the bolt cant just be hammering up against the backplate.

Thanks

I shortened the rod as well as the snout on the carrier. The bolt still moves the same distance as originally, but I am putting one of those buffer pads in it as well.

So you not using the buffer assy at all? Just the pad?

Link Posted: 9/18/2005 9:00:38 PM EDT
If you do not install a real buffer, your receiver will get roller dimples in it.

As the carrier slams into that stupid little pad, the rollers get forced outward and leave horrid protrusions in the receiver rail slots.
