A very curious looking AEG, this one. It has an mp5 receiver, but a shortened
cocking tube, a vertical foregrip, a shorter magazine, and no stock. It is about
30 cm long, and can easily fit under a jacket, or a very large pocket. It never
gets in the way, and never is awkward to carry. The k is matt black, and very
vicious looking, although not exactly as imposing as an M60E3. You can buy a
very useful shoulder holster type sling, which clips to your belt, and holds
the replica snugly to your side, and can be quickly released to fire.

Although the k is a very good AEG, it does have problems. Firstly, the AK type
battery is quite low capacity, and a second one is highly recommended. An external
battery bag is an option, although it looks poor, and can slip around. Also,
wires get in the way, and can get damaged. Another AK battery will get through
a days skirmishing, although the trigger happy nutters I mentioned earlier may
need another. Another problem is the stock, or lack of one. It is hard to hold
the k steady and aim at the same time, especially due to the relatively lightweight,
giving it a bit more kick than most AEGs. Thirdly, and finally, the battery
is awkward to replace, as you have to remove the butt plate and the foregrip,
and you have to make sure you keep hold of the three pins.
to fit an XM/M4 stock to an MP5k
You will need: A 180mm long
bolt, and a nut of the same width
A junior hacksaw
Some Loctite glue
Oh yeah, and an xm/m4 stock
Step 1: Remove the
stock, and slide the stock itself of, leaving the stock tube.
Step 2: Take off the mp5k buttplate, and drill a hole in the centre,
the right size for the bolt you have.
Step 3: Position the stock on the mp5k buttplate, and hold it in place
with loctite superglue.
Step 4: Put the bolt through, so it protrudes through the butt plate.
Screw on the nut, and tighten it as much as you can, then cut off the protruding
piece of the bolt.
Step 5: Slide the stock back on, and reattach the stock and buttplate
to the AEG.
This AEG is an excellent
