    Got ahold of an MP-5 A4 today. Got a heck of a good deal on it, too.....

    The scope will be gone tonight as will the crappy Pelican light knockoff.....

    I already own another MP-5, so I was thinking of customizing this one and selling it; I'll be donating the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project in New Mexico, so.....

    Give me some ideas on how to make this the coolest MP-5 I can!

    I'll be selling it after I get it fixed up and shiny again. Proceeds go to Wounded Warrior Project. I'll post details of the auction do everybody here has first chance bids ;)

    The MP5 is a very fine firearm to say the least. One of these days I hope to make it up to the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot and fire one.

    This baby shoots EXTREMELY well. I almost want to keep it and sell mine.

    Heck if you live anywhere near Georgia just stop by and bring your own ammo. I'd let ya shoot it ;)

    It was just some cheap Tasco typa junk optic. I gave NO IDEA why the guy had an 8X optic on a sun machine gun!

    Oh she's select fire! Only problem is she doesn't like to spit more than 8-10 rounds without jamming. Oh well, nothing a lil TLC and about 50 hours of careful, anal retentive Gunsmithing can't fix ;)

    Lol. It ain't mine for long. Like I said she's gonna be a charity weapon. I've got $7700 in her and I'll probably sell a couple random "half custom" guns I have ( guns my customers ordered, made deposits on, and the buyer never finished paying for and picked up) to finance the work I do to this baby!

    That is true, that is true.

    Maybe once she's finished I'll post a video of rapid fire, full auto goodness.

    Think I should chrome her out? Or lots of shiny silver maybe?

    I would have it refinished, side swing stock, a nice aimpoint, and don't forget a quick detach suppressor. Then you have a gun to have wet dreams about.
