These are the same receivers and kits available from Federal Arms. NO PART OF THEM IS GENUINE H&K. The receivers are Special Weapons and the kits are mostly Special Weapons, with a few Pakistani contract parts. The ONLY advantage to buying this stuff is you can send them to a REAL gunsmith like Jim Gravitt at Protech and have a HK94 clone gun that will actually work, and have a decent assembly and finish. Unlike the crapshoot of buying SW5s from the factory. But it will still be a SW5 receiver and substandard parts. Plus the cost of having it correctly assebmled, combined with the cost of parts will result in a higher price than a SW5 already assembled. The best possible senario is to lay your hands on a REAL German MP5 kit, I've seen them on subguns occassionally for about $850.00, and have Jim build them onto the SW receiver. But for the price and trouble you could almost get a preban HK94.

Yeah, but no more HK receivers coming into the country. If only FMP exported semi auto 9mm receivers. Armed Scientist, I know these items are in the Federal Arms catalog.

TOAD has a thing on his website about how he got screwed by FAC and he is getting rid of all the kits. If I were you I would put this whole kit idea thing as far away as possible. All you need is to get in the middle of a pissing atch between TOAD and Harlan. Buy a SW5 POS and try to fix it. Or get a real one.
