G3k complete! We’ve been desparate to build such an item for ages, but haven’t
had the time to get hold of some of the component parts (yet). Well AndyR
has had the time, energy and the effort to design and build his own version
of this gorgeous replica (seen to the right).
for the latest on his newest published project, including some gorgeous photos
and truly ingenius bodging. You can find more about it on the GunWorx
page, and their G3k
I found an image on SecurityArms.com
of a similar weapon, the HKG53k, that is based more on the MP5 receiver, but
using a 5.56 calibre (I assume), thus it looks a lot like the above image.
Someone reminded me where the image below is from (I’d forgotten ages ago).
I originally found it on a photo page on RedWolf
Airsoft, and the owner is listed as someone by the name of “LTS”
This started me doing

The kind of
information I am constantly looking for is where to get the parts for
the conversion, and the kind of machining and work that needs to be done (preferably
from anyone who has attempted a similar project). Photos, weblinks and other
information is gratefully accepted. If you have any such information, please
get in contact with me. Arnie
‘lazy’ solution: I did get a quote for a pre-built (built-to-order)
model from The Q-Project
Of course, these quotes
Curiously enough the
As I mentioned before
With the G3 stock and MC51/A3 foregrip removed there isn’t a great deal
of room for a battery. What you can do, is mill out the top of the G3 receiver,
and remove the cocking handle tube. You can then use the freed up space to fit
an AK style stick battery, much like the MP5k. To get to the hop-up you will
then need to pry the ‘shell-eject’ cover back manually with your fingernail.
In the project shown in
this article, the gunsmith has come up with a cunning solution, that maybe
one day TokyoMarui will take up in their models. The magazines contain a battery,
and battery connectors have been fitted to the top of the flip-up catch that
covers the bb feeding hole (please note image #3, and #4 below).

it started? I still haven’t got round to starting this project
myself, my personal aim is to start the job in the summer when I have some free
time and cash to source the parts (I’ll probably need most of the parts from
an TM MC51, and an TM MP5k). Until then all the information here is sourced
from images and conversations with other people via email, so you’ll have to
forgive me if any of the info here is incorrect or not detailed enough.
and Koch: Firearm Numbering Systems –
lists a lot of H&K models with images and parts diagrams
– Umm.. it’s in Japanese and it’s got an image of an airsoft G3k =)
‘Myguns’ page – this page has more image’s of the LTS MC51k, so I
assume that LTS is a member there
– the only documented and
complete G3-Kurtz conversion out there. Nice one Andy!
