Special Weapons SW-5

A U.S made MP5 clone, the SW-5 was available in two variants; a stamped steel receiver and a cast steel receiver. The one in the photos is of the cast version. They’re supposed to be more rigid and less prone to receiver flex during operation but are usually out of spec since the receiver is thicker. Most standard claw mounts for the HK series will not work on these cast receiver without some effort or modifications. (GRH)
