Presenting my LEGO® MP5K!
About this creation
Having been quite busy with college and work for the past few months, I have been doing a bit less building and have taken a lengthy break from my LEGO® MOC-posting sites. I am now back with some all-new models to show you!

Having toyed with the idea of building an MP5K for some time now and seen all the great MOCs that others have made, I decided within the last few months to try constructing one of my own. The Heckler and Koch MP5 family of submachine guns is one of the most well-made and widely distributed in the world, and I wanted the challenge of constructing an H&K firearm for the first time, which might then make it easier to build similar weapons in the future. Having chosen the MP5K as my project, I wanted to replicate one of its more modern and standard versions and settled on the ‘A4’ variant, which features four different fire-selector settings. I finished the replica during my Spring break from college.

This model bears the fruit of several significant breakthroughs I have made in my gun-building techniques. The first is my learning to build the width of a receiver in an odd number of studs. My MP5K is based off a 3-stud width, which can make it difficult to include normal features (e.g. working trigger, removable magazine), but provides the small submachine gun with a greater degree of dimensional accuracy when finished. The second significant stride I’ve made is in the trigger design; this is, to date, one of the smallest, working trigger mechanisms I’ve inserted in a model, and the MP5K is my first replica to use one of the curved animal tail/claw pieces as a trigger, instead of the less-realistic Technic angle connectors I normally have to use. I am also continually improving my ‘Studs Not On Top’ techniques for attaching detailed parts like the barrel and pistol grips while trying to strengthen the fragile connections that these components often have.

The life-size replica features a new, curved pull-back trigger, a four-position fire-selector switch, sliding cocking handle and bolt, line-up gunsights, and a removable magazine.

[Overall dimensions: 12.8” long, 1.8” wide, and 8.3” high (from top of gunsights to bottom of main grip). Total weight: 1.2 lbs. First completed on March 28, 2012; deconstructed on June 17, 2012.]



[The vertical foregrip incorporates thin Technic tires wrapped around its shaft.]


[The magazine removed; the magazine catch shown here does not actually lock the magazine in its place.]


[The cocking tab pulled back to open the bolt on the right side.]


[The bolt half-open, as visible on the right side of the weapon.]


[The weapon’s line-up, look-down gunsights.]


[As on most LEGO renditions of the MP5, the front aperture sight has been simulated by a rubber tire.]


[The four fire-settings available on the A4-variant of the MP5. This ambidextrous switch is physically linked to its twin on the other side of the gun.]




Thanks for looking; let me know what you think I should build next!

Possibly the best mp5k replica out there. The grip is fantastic. Would love it if you could check out some of my guns

Very nice job! I recommend doing the Heckler & Koch SL8 or MP7A1.

Gorgeous build and I get the challenge in trying to get the right thickness but I've been looking at an UMP-45 and was surprised by their thickness. I was wondering if you've actually built this too thin! According to the HK website the MP5KA4 is 55mm at it widest point which is approaching 7 studs wide...the UMP-45 is a gob-smacking 69mm which is over 8 studs wide!

Possibly! This is one of the many weapons I've considered replicating; stay tuned!

Quoting ABC MAN Cole, I would really like to purchase this! Please put this on CUSOO! Or you could make another one and I could buy it privately! I would offer a lot for this! If you built it, it would be a collectors item!
Thanks for your comment, and I really appreciate your interest in obtaining a copy of my LEGO replica! Unfortunately, I am not selling any of my weapons right now or making instructions for them due to the risk that they may be mistaken for the real deal. (See my homepage for more details.) Also, CUUSOO has strict rules on uploading modern military items; this would never be allowed there. ~Cole

Wow. Yet again you amaze me. All of the shapes, curves, and the overall look of the gun are perfect. How do you know the perfect pieces to use. The magazine is perfect. For your next gun, I think you should make a Dragunov.

Quoting Greatest Ever I've been waiting a long time for another creation from you... and this is awesome. I also have a question: Do you break your previous creations to make new ones? Or do you keep them all in tact?. I'm really looking forward to new guns! -GE
Well, I have taken a few of them apart (which is indicated on the models' respective webpages) and I usually leave my models intact for at least a year before I get tired of them. It's interesting that you've asked this question today, because I'm actually planning on taking apart my MP5K, Uzi, Karabiner 98k, and Walther P38 tonight to give me more storage space for my next projects. Thanks for the comment!

This is awesome! The angles are perfect! I like how you were able to keep it in a three stud width. Mine is four studs, but I'm not a Lego artist like you. love your creations, keep building!

A man's work of art...This was surely an eye-opener.Perhaps try building a SAR-21 Assault rifle?!Captain Pas has already done a good job on the working one...Perhaps you can give it a shot on your version of the SAR-21 AR...!

Quoting Lego Builders Very good creation! It looks kind of real, but I. Don't really like what you said on the intro. ;) -LB Jr.
Thanks a lot for your comment! When writing the initial intro you have mentioned ["Look closely; this MP5K is actually LEGO®!" which I have now replaced], I didn't mean to boast in any way about my creation. Many people tell me that my guns look like the real ones from the thumbnail-views, and unfortunately there are people on MOCpages who post pictures of the real guns in order to draw others' attention; my intent was simply to emphasize that this is a LEGO MOC, despite what the thumbnail may look like. I apologize if this sounded like vanity, and I really appreciate your feedback! ~Cole

THAT IS ONE OF YOUR BEST YET!!!!! The MP5 is one of my favorite weapons! You should do a Thompson M1928 sometime.
