Description:

Originally manufactured in Germany in 1985 as a HK94 semi-automatic rifle, this firearm was upgraded by Fleming Firearms of Collinsville, OK (so marked on the left side of the receiver, hidden by the trigger group) into a MP5 sub-machine gun, with a remarked receiver, proper length barrel, welded sear trip on the bolt and a "0/1/A" (safe/semi/full-auto) marked trigger group with a pack modified to be compatible with a commercial "shelf" style receiver. With the closure of civilian machine gun registration in 1986, this H&K got in right under the wire, and would be among the last H&K guns to be fully transferrable. Fitted with a post front sight and a 4-peep rotating drum rear sight, bearing the MP5 marking and "IF" date code on top of the receiver and the Heckler & Koch Chantilly, Virginia address on the right side of the magazine well. The grip is right handed with the aforementioned markings on the trigger group, with a triangular forearm and a two-position telescoping buttstock. An extra solid plastic buttstock is also included.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as upgraded, with 95% plus matte black finish, showing some wear and scuffing on the trigger group around the selector switch and other lighter handling marks overall. The mounted furniture is also very good, and the extra stock shows some mild scuffs and stains. Mechanically excellent. A difficult to find item on the American machine gun market, and one of the flagship weapons of the 20th century. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
