What are my choices for a non-firing replica MP5?  I would prefer a (at least partial) metal one that can be disassembled.

If there is an existing thread covering this, please point me to it.

Emmm...full metal Airsoft?

Try, http://www.project-x.org.uk/glsmg.html. they had one but its sold. Maybe they can get more?  Or here, http://www.dwsuk.com/oscommerce/index.php.  And finally, http://www.deactivated-guns.co.uk/detail/deactivated_mp5.htm.  I think you will find they are expensive and you may just want to buy a clone?  Or you could go with a company called Marushin which makes blowback  model guns.  Collectors Armory in Alexandria, VA had them years ago.

Oh crap, I don't want a dewat.  Hell, I can get a clone for less!

It looks like I will wind up with an Airsoft to gut.

Citidel Guns in las Vegas has a MP5 in their store on the wall for display that uses a real HK MP5 receiver, serial number, stamped MP5 and everything, that shoots some sort of BB.  I talked to John about his gun and he explained that it was part of a pneumatic cartridge conversion that shoot BB's now.

After looking it over, the receiver was the real deal.  Gears turning in my head, but he wouldn't sell it.

Did it shoot for-real BB's, or was it an Airsoft derivative that shoots the plastic ones?

There is also a BB SMG made in Russia, called the Drozd.  It uses CO2 and an electric feed.  That MP5 may be some sort of adaptation.

Sounds cool, either way.

WOW, those UK deactivated guns sure have gone up since I lived there back in 92.  Just as well though.  You can not import them into the US anymore than you can import a live Mp5 or any other NFA item.  The BATFE takes a dim view of stuff like that...and Bubba, your new room-mate will probably take a dim view of you.

If it is just a wall hanger you are looking for, try ASP red-guns.  These are the hard resin training weapons that PD's use.  Not cheap but a hell of a lot cheaper than any other option.  A little Krylon Hi-Temp grill paint and from 5 ft away you cant tell the difference.  They have quite a bit of weight to them as well.  The only drawback (aside from the fact that they don't shoot) is that there are no moving parts.

I dont know anything about regs on the deactivated weapons.  Check out the Marushin MP40 blowback.  Maybe you could find something like that in an MP5.  I like the redgun idea...paint the stocks flat black and the receiver and barrell with more semi gloss for detail!  In fact I think you could order it black in color and just paint the receiver and barrell leaving the stock flat?

Sabre,
DEWATS and Live MG's are the same as far as the ATFE is concerned.  They MUST be papered and in the regestry before the '86 ban.  Gone are the days when you could order a DEWAT out of the back of Guns&Ammo or American Rifleman.

As to the ASP redguns, they are available in 2 color choices.  Red from ASP and Blue  from Ring's.
They are that color to identify at a glance as training weapons.  This way, the guy with the gun pointed AT him knows that he isn't about to get shot by his training partener.
