Magpul announces several new upgrades for the Heckler & Koch MP5 and clones. Fans of both the ‘80s action movie staple and the polymer-furniture geniuses can now merge their two loves and have the best of 1980s’ subgun movie stardom and usable furniture and hardware. 

Magpul SL Hand Guard for SP89/MP5K (MAG1048)

Magpul’s new 5-inch SL Hand Guard is a high-strength, injection-molded polymer upgrade that boasts improved ergonomics, aggressive texturing, and M-Lok-compatible slots for mounting modern accessories. This represents an injection-molded-handguard solution for the Heckler & Koch SP89/MP5K -- and their clones -- that increases the utility and enhances control of the firearm.

 Features

  • High-strength polymer construction for rigidity and stability
  • M-Lok slots at 3-, 6- and 9-o’clock positions 
  • Aesthetics reminiscent of legacy MP5 furniture lines as reimagined by Magpul

  • Color: Black
  • MSRP: $49.95

Magpul also offers an 8-inch SL Hand Guard with the same specifications as the 5-inch Hand Guard and other SL handguards, but specifically designed for the HK94/MP5. MSRP is also $49.95.

The Magpul ESK offers a variety of selector levers for the Heckler & Koch polymer trigger housings and its Magpul SL Grip Module (available soon). The Magpul ESK provides a modular, ambidextrous selector with enhanced ergonomics and a modern look for the classic MP5 SSL. With easier access to the user-configurable levers, the Magpul ESK allows quick firing-hand activation and deactivation of the safety. 

Features

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
