H&K MP5SD (+ Internal Pictures)

Introduction: H&K MP5SD (+ Internal Pictures)

About: K'NEX gun builder here at Instructables. More or less retired from the community, but I still pop in now and again.

Hey guys. Well, I have been working on this gun for almost (if not over) a week now, and I am not entirely happy with it. But as I cannot put my finger on what is incorrect,  I think you might be able to help me with that.

As you can see, this is my H&K MP5SD, the first one on this site. This is probably my all time favorite gun. The very first gun I ever posted was a MP5SD (a VERY VERY bad one. See step #3). So I decided, as May 19, 2012 was the day I joined and the day I posted my old MP5SD, I would post a better version on my one year anniversary. I am a day late, but what does that matter. =D

This gun is comfortable, hefty, and the permanent silencer looks great on it. The stock adjusts from being "closed" at 26 1/2 inches (total length of gun when stock is not out), to 30 1/2 inches open (total length of gun with stock out). Four inches may not seem like much, but it is better than you think.

As I said before, the gun is very comfortable, but I would say it is rather flimsy. The stock's bars are only a grey rod wide, so it is not very sturdy, but it is really the best possible under the circumstances. The mag can shoot tan connecters, or green rods, and I would expect it to get 50 ft., but that is just speculation.

The sights are alright, and are as close as possible, and don't look to bad. Now, you may be seeing a TON of broken pieces, but you really only need the four shown in the last 6 or 7 pics. Don't freak out,  not all of them are needed.

Some features of the gun would be:
New mech (see the last 7 pics)
Adjustable stock
Good range
Great sights
Accurate looks
Open to bottom attachments and sights (see pic 25 -26)

Overall this gun is more for looks than it is for shooting ability, but it can do both. Go ahead and take some time to look at the next 3 steps, as they will show you how I got to where this gun is now. (Note: No FP shown in pics)

Step 1: MP5SD V.3

I only changed a few things in this to get to the best version (V.4). Among those changes being:
I took out the fake charging handle
I exchanged the mag fore something less-wide

Step 2: MP5SD V.2

This was my very first version. As you can see, I have a G36 stock on, instead of the classic MP5 adjustable stock, as I had not developed that yet. Many of the other changes are apparent.

Step 3: MP5SD V.1

This was my very first version, and among one of my very first guns. It is pretty bad...

    It’s pretty good. It’s very flimsy and I hate flimsy guns. My MP5 is very sturdy
