1. MP5A3, most accessories and do-dad available. Parts are cheapest (relatively speaking of course), intermediate bbl length makes is the most practical. A3 and A2 stock can be used without an adaptor. 2. MP5K-PDW, still get a threaded 3-lug bbl to add a can or flash-hider if you wish. Folding stock works ok. 3. MP5K, if you don't put on the PDW stock, it's basically a full auto pistol with a forward grip. No bbl attachment point for can or flash-hider. Small and cool, but pretty useless otherwise.

Dont get the K. If you want a room broom get a MAC. Get one with a stock, I say.

I would only get the K if it came with the briefcase.

hey... just the guy I need to talk to. welp I plan on getting a sear based gun. My aim is to eventually have an A3 and a PDW. Most likely I'll wind up swaping one sear amongst the two host guns. Most of the PDW conversions I've seen are also lugged, where as the K's aren't lugged or threaded. It's kind of bastardized but what can ya do? I think I've pretty much limited this to the A3 or PDW. The A3 is definitely the most practical of the group but the PDW is just so damn cool. I haven't shot either so I really can't compare the actual performance/feel of the two. rssc

I've got an M11/9 and while it's cool... it's no HK. An unmarried HK sear is so versatile, it's a great buy. rssc

Then how about the A3 and a V53?

Well I'm kind of holding on to see how people like their V53's. So far so good but we'll know for sure pretty soon. I'm sure if the V53 proves to be as good as I've heard so far, it'll probably be the third. rssc

A3 with RAS, forward grip, light and aimpoint. Then the K or PDW will have nothing on it, except for having a flimsier stock and a four inch shorter barrel.

With the full size Mp5 you can practice hitting a man sized target at 50 yards with a 3 round burst, then a 4 round burst, then a 10 round burst, with all ten shots in the paper at 50 yards. And if you want, you can always retract the stock and hose it around up close too. The full size Mp5 just has alot more to offer.

You know, I've heard that the K is quite a bit less accurate then the A3 due to the lack of a stock. Conversely I've heard that due to the PDW's folding stock it's actually comparable to the a3 (a little less).
Oh yeah, hope you've saved up about $11,000.

YEP, don't remind me. I may get the sear first then have the gun built up at a later date. That'll probably cost a little bit more in the long run, but the immediate out of pocket cost will be less. Ohh why couldn't I have decided to do this 10 years ago..... rssc

Hey guys thanks for the responses... I'm definitely going to get the sear / seargun first. I don't even want to wait 6 months... no telling what the sear will cost then! I'll have to SBR the host guns as I plan on swapping the sear between several different firearms. I think I'm just going to find the best price I can on a.) a sear or b.) a sear gun MP5 type firearm. If I get the PDW now, I'll get an A3 host gun later and vice versa.
