    Congrats man! Thats awesome!

    How does it shoot? Whats your thoughts on that brace? Been looking for a brace for mine.

    I got 5 factory mags when i bought my HK kit. I was told that the factory mags were kinda rare and to jump on them when they come up for sale.

    I couldn’t tell you. The temperature dropped below 20 until today. I said screw that and stayed in, Ive reaches that point where I’m tired of being cold. Today was the best it’s been in a week but I spent the day getting ready for a call out in the morning.

    Hopefully warmer weather is around the corner. Until then this thing is going to have to wait.

    I love this brace. It was made and intended for the mp5k pistols but I did some parts swapping with an original chote folding stock. I couldn’t find the hardware anywhere but on a completed unit. Now I have a mp5k stock with adaptor I needs to resell. I actually got my brace a bit early. I harassed gearhead works via Instagram until they sold me a unit before they actually went for sale. I would have loved a collapsing stock converted to use a tailhook but it’s diy or wait. I’m not interested in potentially butchering an original collapsing stock so I went the route I did.

    I had the tailhook on my scorpion evo as well. It’s probably my favorite brace made other than the sba3 on ar’s

    Nice! I've always an MP5 clone, but the price has kept me away.

    I pickup up a Zenith few years back from AF and so glad I did. It was around $1600 and I found a hand full of POF mags for it. Pretty happy with it.

    I hear ya on the weather. Im sick of it here and we are already looking at places in AZ to move. Been in the PNW all my life and the weather, people, and political climate says its time to go.

    I was looking into the SB tactical brace. Looks like a solid setup and ive read good reviews on it. Ultimately the SBR route would be the best option but I just dont want to deal with the hassle of federal and state laws.

    Same here. I traded into my kit or I wouldnt have one. Although, lately it seems some AK kits are getting pretty dam spendy.

    I felt the same way. Then as I investigated more I convinced myself it was Zenith or bust, then... no more Zenith.

    You were a smart man. Push pin lower is the way to go IMHO. Now I'm with the masses waiting for Zenith's to return. Passed on the PTR K, which was probably a good move. Passed on the Omega K, which was probably not a good move. Thinking about a Parabellum Combat K clone, but they're like $2600. And Dakota Tactical? Too much for me.

    There is this option also. Not exactly the same though. GSG-522 is out of production. GSG had a lawsuit by H&K since it copied the MP5 too closely.

    Just got an email from A buyer club I joined. Looks like the zeniths are back in the pipeline. Too bad they fucked around for two years or they would have gotten my business.

    What issue? I've heard of one instance and they took care of it quickly.

    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms".

    I finally got to the range today and was able to put 500 rounds through my ptr. I haven’t fired a mp5 since 2013 granted that one had more options than safe and fire but I forgot how much I love the system. As usual it’s a dirty bitch to clean but man it was a pleasure to shoot.

    The US made mp5 mags feed fine so long as you hold them towards you. If they are permitted to wobble forward they will somehow release themselves and drop free. Reviews say they work better in hk or zenith guns. I guess I’ll see if I can’t recover something from them.

    My new POF mags worked great with the exception of one single mag. For some reason it only fails to feed. I downloaded it and had the same result. It locks up fine while tighter than the other mags. I guess it goes to the sale pile too.

    The ptr started a little rough in the first couple mags but after I got through the US mags and past 300 rounds it started to run really well. I had a lot of fun shooting this thing today. I’m pretty happy with my purchase.

    After I was able to scoop up a 6 pack of mags recently I looked on RTG and found a few accessories I had been wanting.

    Thats great the Zenith pistols will be available again.

    Is that an MI rail? I can’t stand the one that came with my pistol. The enormous ptr label kills it for me.
