Not sure this has been brought up: There is a HK 3-lug flash hider you could weld to get about another inch. Wouldn't look silly (but couldn't use a suppressor either.) Might get you over 29" w/ other stock solutions that are close but no cigar? You wouldn't actually have to weld to the bbl. Just weld the latch closed. Would be easy to remove w/ a grinder if you ever permanently left MD w/o doing any damage to the bbl.

Your point is moot unless he has a stock on hand and readily available to be installed on said MP5.

Never done AK before but thank you very much for the reply and walkthrough. Sounds like I might have to sell before moving...

This is a lot of fun to shoot and measures 26.5" to the 3-lug. I could install a VFG and fall into the legal firearm category. An SBR is preferable but at this point $200 is better spent elsewhere.

I like this full size so much I am considering selling the Z-5P. This AT94P is super smooth and, knock on wood, has eaten the flat point point ammo from KCI/ATI mags without any hiccups.

Currently running through 135gr HP subsonics from LAX Ammo.

Add in some cutting and drilling! I bought the 3D part from this guy:

flood@farrow.tech

I bought the POF and tailhook used, so it wasn't too bad.

This a company that is making adapters as well as modifying stocks BUT they require the "F" stock, which is 4 position and much more money than a POF. But man, this Techsmith outfit is killing it with their stuff. Lots of adapters for a bunch of the PCCs.
