Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew someone capable of TIG welding an small weld on my MP5 Clone that I managed to cut to deep.

Your best bet is to go to a local welding shop that does TIG welding. Show them what you have and what you want done. Be aware, the area will need to be cleaned and have the finish removed. I don't know where the spot is but there might be a finish issue to deal with after the fix.

I was told my a buddy (huge HK fan) that this guy has done extensive work on multiple weapons for him. I've seen the guns and they are nicely done.

Hello,

Yes I am looking for someone local but willing to outsource it if need be.

I managed to just cut it enough. I was planning on just getting claw mount to work properly and then send it away to get refinished but now I have to get the hole corrected and refinished regardless.

yes yes I know, noob mistake I get it but I understood what could happen and it did.

After looking at the picture, I would highly suggest getting a good smith involved with this fix. It would be very easy to burn though. There is also the issue of heat shrinkage wrapping the receiver. A smith that specializes in fixing SW claw mounts would be best. I think Joe at Dakota Tactical does this work. Personally I would have added a PTR steel rail to the top of the receiver. I bet that would be a better option, but that is my personal opinion. YMMV.

You may not like this idea and some others as well...... but if you have steady hands try using jb weld. I actually used jb weld on one of CA89/Mp5k clones and you cant tell where I did it and it has now had thousands of rounds through it, no issues what so ever.

Just a thought, just a cheap and easy possible fix before ya end up having it welded and causing more possible damage.......... Good Luck either way

This has past my mind, I was thinking about it but I still need the gun refinished so I figured if I can send it away to someone that does refinishing they could also weld it up and then do the refinish.

So before I decide to send this bad boy off and get it fixed and refinished I figured I give it a go with what I have available.

I Used some JB weld and did my thing. I will say from the inside point of view the hole looks completely filled. Plus the outside doesnt look half bad.

I also went over the entire gun and ground down/smoothed a lot of rough edges. Just need to figure out what kind of paint job I should do and go from there.

Any Ideas on how I should paint this?

There may be a thread over on HK Pro that you can search reference refinishing yourself and bake on yourself............

I look at it this way, If your going to shoot the weapon. Why does it need to look pretty and perfect? Yeah, I want my weapons to look good but I shoot them and they do have scratches and dings!

Oh, Looks like ya did a good job on the receiver by the way!

Jayson does good work. I have a Sig that he worked on for me, and I'm pleased with it.

Here is a partial picture of the one side.
I might just leave it like this and just throw a clear coat on the whole thing.

What do you think? leave it alone and clear coat it or go ahead and finish sanding and preparing it for paint
