I was looking at your hk work, I have a 91 cloan and would like a 93 to go with it. How much trouble did you have in getting one together?
I had some help with my MP5K. I didn't think I could get good enough penetration without adding a ton of metal with my welder, really need a TIG for these, and I don't have a TIG. Alot of hand fitting on stuff, but not much compared to having to fab a closed bolt system on an old SMG or something.
I've done a CETME, the MP5K and about 3/4 done with a second CETME, but with G3 rear drum site and a paddle release, more like a HK than a CETME but using CETME guts.
The actual build isnt that bad. Its just the cost. If you're looking for a 223 HK, will probably be cheaper to find a clone, IE a C93, or MKE had some 223's I think, Vector etc.
HK33 kits are still reasonably priced, but figure in the cost of kit, barrel, replacement parts that may be unsalvagable from the kit, 922r parts if you give a shit about that, receiver (and bending jig if you use a flat) its a pretty expensive build. They are really quite simple firearms though
I've been thinking I want a HK53 clone, kinda starting committing to it but haven't gone all the way yet. A CETME-L in 5.56 looks like a neat novelty build challenge.
