    Does that MP5 on the top pic use those “old style” handguards or is it some custom thing?

    • The Don

      I assume the top picture is an quite old picture (probably from the late 1980s / early 1990s). The car is an old Mercedes which is not in use anymore. By looking at the window, I assume it’s one of the few armored patrol cars.

      • A bearded being from beyond ti

        I see.

    • Petto

      That’s a HK53 which in early days had several types of handguards

      • Tom

        The mag does not look wide enough (might just be perspective but my money is against). It looks far more like a normal MP5 with the older slimline foreguard which is pretty common in German police use.

        • Petto

          Yea , i been looking at that image without zooming it and it really looked like Hk53 heh , so my bad ^^

  • Ambassador Vader

    The most gangster style arm rest. I wonder if HK did the moldings? Probably not since Germany still has a little bit of money.

    • iksnilol

      Maybe the (most likely German) manufacturer of the cars did.

    • gunsandrockets

      Sure! And HK only charges 1,000 Euros for the molding.

      😉

  • Anonymoose

    Widen the spaces out a little and put an HK53 in there!

    • Ken

      Why stop at that? I say MG42 or MG3.

      • Anonymoose

        HK25? GMG?

        • SP mclaughlin

          PDW sized G11?

          • Indiana Finney

            Carbine length MK-23?

          • Some Guy

            So… just a Mk23 then?

          • Uniform223

            SNAAAKE!

      • Matt Grizz Gregg

        Why stop at that? I say get a trailer hitch and tow an M65 atomic cannon.

        • Ken

          In that case, 16″/50 caliber Mark 7 naval gun firing a Mark 23 nuclear shell. You may need to put it on a railway carriage, but at least the US Army still has 15k conventional 16″ shells lying around.

    • Frank Grimes

      Zyklon compartments?

  • Major Tom

    And now there will be a rash of police car MP5 robberies because the secret is out.

    • noob

      Let me ask you a question: when you came pulling in here, did you notice a sign out in front of my house that said “MP5 Storage”?

      • Major Tom

        No.

      • demophilus

        “Don’t you realize, man, that if Bonnie comes home and finds an MP5 in my house, I’m going to get divorced?”

    • MartinWoodhead

      Not Really Germany doesn’t have a major gun crime problem and german police are very professional though they do have a sense of humour.

      When my brother ran into them after his tour in iraq the comment was ” for you Tommy the war is over and followed by I always wanted to say that.”

      • Blake

        Uh did you mess up the quotation marks or did they really say that whole thing?

      • DataMatters

        Sure, no problems over there which is why the cops all have submachine guns within easy reach.

        • glenn cheney

          As I predicted in other forums of less restricted verbiage, Herr Merkel has been banished to the historical substrate, arrogant EXIT speech not withstanding.
          The locally based BMW armored divisions have been met and turned back by incendiary devices of unknown origin. Beemer toastamundae.
          Some of those blue super rock n’ rollah everything proof vehicles now stashed here n’ there state-side s/be inter-agency augmented, and sent to reconfigure the platform in addition to the armament deployed in those areas affected.
          Maybe they could use the crews as well. They need them much more, for now,, than we need them.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Thats straight up gangster.

  • iksnilol

    I look that hideaway compartment that opens. Wouldn’t mind something like that for an SBR AK.

    Or cut down shotgun.

  • datimes

    I would have preferred that over going to the trunk.

  • Drew Coleman

    Can I get one of these for my truck please? I never use my door pockets…

    • PK

      Actually… yes! They pop up for sale in the USA now and then. Surplus can be so entertaining.

    • Russ Kell

      Alas, LMC didn’t have them in the catalog.

  • Badwolf

    Even better if you can store the gun facing front, car had small port, and you can fire it in place.

    • noob

      If it is parallel with the skin of the door you’d have to drill the port all the way through the front quarter panel.

      • Badwolf

        I was just kidding… but okay

  • Harry’s Holsters

    I wish someone would make these for AR Pistols. I’m going to take a look at the doors in my truck! haha

    • Emperius

      MPX with retractable stabilizer, done.

  • Bunga

    Czech Police has similar set-up for their MP-7 equipped cars.

  • cm smith

    Those of us old enough will think of the “Sheriff of Cochise” 50’s TV show with a 30-30 in the door.

    • nick

      old enough ? heck, 30-30 is still my patrol rifle 🙂

  • demophilus

    Wait — I’m confused. Aren’t PCCs obsolete?

    • Mazryonh

      Not for general police work (and MP5s that aren’t limited to semi-auto fire are SMGs, not PCCs). Most of the time, body armor worn by hostiles is pretty rare. Besides, PCCs and SMGs are generally much easier to suppress and use less smokeless powder than rifle-caliber firearms.

  • glenn cheney

    I am certain, in due course, the Dept. will receive the bit by bit return of the subject of interest.
    On a less serious note, as all gaze in wonder at the hardware there are some that evaluate the necessity of reconfiguration. You’d think there was some urgent need for instant access.
    Obviously, I am under-informed.

  • Rooftop Voter

    Air Marshalls leave their duty piece on the floor of aircraft bathroom. Oooops.

  • Mazryonh

    Now that the MP7 is available they probably don’t need these custom moldings if they decide to deploy it in cop cars. The MP7 is much more compact than the MP5, and can just be stowed in a relatively small case that can be tucked somewhere convenient in a cop car.
