Field striping is not too bad pretty much tool-less on the HK one.
The A2 fixed stock is currently available at hkparts.net. A cheaper rail to mount a red dot sight can be had. I used the one for the airsoft mp5.

Like the 9mm mp5 the Walther HK mp5 has just 2 pushpins to separate the lower from the rest of the rifle. Can't be that hard to take apart right? As for cleaning I just use CLP to clean the gun and use the bore snake to clean the barrel.

If you go the GSG route you can replace the screws with the pushpins except for the one at the end cap would require a little modification. These are also available at the same site.

Of course my rifle was purchased through an IP.

I own the H&K version mp5 that was made by walther. I love it! It is so accurate and fun to shoot. Well worth the money. Im actually looking for a 2nd one.

The stock that I got from HK parts.net was not a perfect fit but nothing me and my drill could not fix.
I wonder if I can remove the fake silencer, shorten the barrel and have it rethreaded. Then have a cleanable silencer pinned to it so it won't be a sbr.

I saw a thread about the $100 silencer by Weber here in MDshooters and AR15.com.

Sounds like a good idea. I've been wanting to SBR/suppress mine but, that sounds even better. One less stamp to buy.

Does anyone know what the difference is between the GSG version and the Walther MP-5 22 ? Is there really a build/quality difference. I see the Walther (Sold as HK, in HK Box) is hard to find and some sites claim it no longer exists. I also see this version selling for $600-$1000 on GB. Any Ideas ?

The GSG can be finicky on ammo. It will cycle CCI Mini Mags pretty good. THe H&K one made by Walther will pretty much cycle anything. I have cycled Remington, Winchester, and cci. Also the GSG is different enough that many of the H&K parts may not work.

The H&K one going for over $500 is retarded. I paid $400 for one from a member here.

Even the H&K one has pot metal for the barrel.

That link shows it is no longer available as do most sites. Atlantic claims they may come back in stock. The last 3 sold on GB were over 1K. Here is one of them https://www.gunbroker.com/item/775779625

Guess there are a lot of HK Fans paying for these.

I think I paid around $600(?) for mine four years ago. It wasn't worth that, 1K-no way!

Have you had any problems or do you just feel it isn't worth the money ? Looks like you can at least get your money back !
