H&K MP53 Grouping Capacity

#1
As anybody had any expierence of H&K MP 53, I am trying to put together a package, and need some info if possible.

Grouping Capacity for 5 rounds

Anybody fired it beyond 200m with any success. (open sights)

I don't know the details, but I was under the impression that H&K wouldn't release a weapon for sale until it had been test-fired and achieved a certain level of accuracy.

Ask Phil at the "Singelton International" website, he used to be H&Ks sales and training director in the US and is the most clued up H&K user I know

Do you mean HK53? What type of package you organising?

It's been a while since I've played with 53s, most have been binned now the L22 is in play. There are a few knocking about in AAC and the SF world.

As for success; not a bad bit of kit, I found the balance quite nice.

Are you using expandable, fixed or folding butts, single, 3 rnd burst or auto versions?

I should have some info in work if you let me know exactly what you're after.

Phil reckons the grouping at 100m should be sub 50mm.
Yer, he knows his stuff, did he tell you about being third man on the balcony LOL

You can easily hit targets at 300m using just the fixed iron sights. It is a bit dated these days however in terms of add ons (i.e being able to put a UGL on it) and the fact that parts are apparently becoming harder to source. Personally I thought it was a great bit of kit.

HK 53, and the HK MP53 are different.
Really? What the Hell's an HK MP53 then?

I know the MP5, and I know the HK53, but I've never heard of the MP53.

And that's my fault how?

The HK MP53 is a cut down version of the G33 IIRC.

No, the HK53 is a shortened version of the HK33.

Right then - are we after the HK53 or HK MP53?
and apart from the name different users apply to them the exact diff is???????????

gowan, have a guess..............

right, the HK53, the best thing ever for tititus, designed for dumping 40 rds into a tight space asap, if you dont feck up your target with the burst, the muzzle flash with shock and awe him to death.

the muzzle velocity is absolute pants due to the short barrel, i cant remember it off hand but effective range drops off VERY quick.

I would honestly love to see someone take on a fig 11 at 300m in a serious shoot against other assault rifles with a '53.
honestly.
