MP5 Build Party Notice, postponing

Recommended Posts

I hate doing this, but I talked to George about postponing the MP5 build, wanted to give anyone interested a heads up.

My laptop is taking a dump. I thought I could get it to last till tax season but existing problems are getting worse. So my budget won't allow a new computer and an expensive weapons build this soon.

Another thing, which was brought up in the MP5 threads was welding this thin metal. So me and George are planning to build a few G3 as guinea pigs to get familiar with the HK flat bending/welding/assembly process. These rifles are way cheaper but we aren't going to get quantity discounts as right now we're the only ones thinking of experimenting with them.

This test will also give use the hands on building experience, ideas, and time to rethink and optimize tooling and processes for an MP5 build party.

Hope y'all are still interested in an MP5 build, even though it probably wont be till around summer. We're going to try and still put together a group buy on those contingent on how the G3 builds go.

Again, I'm sorry for anyone who wanted in on an MP5 earlier than summer, but the computer thing was unexpected and I'm trying to find a way to spin it into a positive. Hopefully the G3 build are a beneficial experience so we can have more control over the MP5 builds.

Can I come and see this done? I'm very interested in stamped guns. I know we have previously talked about this but just making sure I would be okay to come to this.

So what kind of time table are we looking at now? I know you've learned quite a bit after this one.

I assumed you meant when, as far as how long it takes to do what I did it took maybe an hour.
