Hello all. Mostly been on the AR and handgun side of things, just started thinking about MP5s and clones. Unfortunetly, my state doesn't allow SBRs or FA to the people, so I gotta look at pistols or virgin receivers. I spent some time looking through the threads, but I see no good online sources for publications. I would be looking for manuals in PDF so I can tell for sure if a build would be in my future or if I want to just buy a BW89-SP. In one of the threads someone was talking about the cocking tube. There is some type of difference in length? Pics or a good way to find out all the info. needed to make a good guess as to the difficulty level to me.

If your thinking about Bobcat, then consider getting an HK-94.

There have been alot of former police HK-94's popping up lately. They cost more money, but according to SteyrAug (our resident HK guru) there is no comparison in quality. You should be able to find one on Gunbroker.com for $2,500-$3,000.

The HK-94 is basically a semi auto MP5 with a 16" barrel.

I thought about that, but Iowa codes and Fedral codes won't let me build a rifle into a pistol. As I stated in the first post I want a short barrel and the only way I can get it in IA is to own a pistol. Thanks for that info on the DOC's released 94s. Now I just need to educate myself on the assembly of HK style weapons.

I've got a Bobcat MP5 clone and LOVE it, my buddy has a SW5 MP5 clone and he loves it as well.

I would have to recommend Bobcat, they quality is superb as well as their customer service. With a lifetime warranty, how can you go wrong?

How new is your Bobcat? I have heard that they initially had quality issues. Not much has been said about recent products. I could take that as a no news is good news, or be smart and keep asking people about their personal experiences. I choose the second option. Got any pics you can post of it, or IM to me?

Did you buy it as a complete rifle, or just the receiver?
