Question, the HK 21E (E meaning export) wasn't produced until the 80's. So either a hk21 that was imported before 68 with new parts, 91 converted to a G-3 before 86 and converted one more time, or a sear rifle on god knows only what receiver.

The point that I'm making is there is no way that this is a german factory HK21E avalible on a form 4, But hey, if it runs, could be a nice toy to have around.

It is an HK91 transferable in which the receiver was swapped into a brand new late model 21E. It is 100% German.

As you probably know, all of the transferable MP5s are really HK94s with MP5 parts kits on them. Same deal with this except this one was a lot harder to pull off. I hear there are less than 10 of these in private hands.

NASA is using them for door gunners (not on the Space Shuttle, though. I think). I think there is a photo on HKPro website somewhere.

Of course, they have a training MP5 that ran 500,000 rounds before a rebuild as well.


Must be real nice to be a gov agency and get all the new toys.

Now the big question, just how many new corvettes would I have to give up buying each year to afford the new toy?

You need an HK91 full auto, a 21E post sample, and some labor. Came to around $30K.

I just realized that I really "need" one of those

I thought there were a few RR MP5s (HK54s) imported prior to '68...

Yes I heard 5 or 6. But I just brought it up because someone said it was strange that it was an imported gun made after 1968 and I wanted to respond that it is common with MP5s also to be conversions.

Likewise I have a transferable MP5/40. It was made by grafting an HK94 to a post-sample MP5/40 parts kit.

Ron,

I know thre are a few different types of 1200m sights. Is the one on the 21E an HK21 sight? I was thinking HK made the silver numeral ones for the HK91/MSG90A1 models.

I thought the yellow or orange numeral ones were for the 21's.

Do you know one way or the other?

(I ask becuase I have the same type you have on my SAR3 restamp.)

All I know is I bought a brand new HK21E and the sights came off it.

All right now Robert, We have been due a new video from you. So when is the 21E gonna shower some brass for us less fortunate souls?

Also, I believe I heard that Michaels Machines was picked to build this beast. So tell us how is his work compared to the other big names.
