OLIMKI will become famous soon enough
HK MP5 A3

Well maybe

I did a three full auto gun purchase deal with a LGS located in the Italian part of Switzerland. The other two guns were a Colt M16 A2 and a select fire CZ 75 automatic. For full autos you have to apply for a special license, cost $ 150 and it can be used for up to three guns but from the same seller and the same day. Waiting time is 2-4 weeks.

This is the third gun I bought.

It’s an odd one since there are no manufacturer’s markings and no proof marks. Model designation on top and serial number is also unusual for HK. Kal. 9 mm is German though.

One theory from the HK forum is that it may be surplus made in Germany at HK destined for MKE (Turkish) before they had the machines, and assembled later. Who knows, but it was cheap enough to tempt me at $ 1600.-

Nice find and at an unbelievably low price. The MP5 is a blast to shoot especially with 9’s being so cheap. Congrats.
