Midwest Industries M-LOK MP5 Handguards

Wisconsin-based firearms accessory manufacturer Midwest Industries just rolled out a new product that should grab the attention of H&K MP5 and clone owners looking to mount lights, vertical foregrips and other accessories. The new forends will fit full size MP5s ano the compact PDW MP5K and SP89. Each model features several M-LOK attachment points as well as all the tools for easy installation.

Standard pricing ranges from $105 to $119.95 directly from the MI website.

  • Personal grade one piece design
  • Simple installation, includes all tools
  • Mil-spec top rail
  • Extremely lightweight design, weighs only 4.8 oz with hardware
  • Slim 1.6 inch diameter for a great feel
  • One five slot M-LOK™ compatible rail included

A closer inspection of the product images reveals a yet to be announced QD sling mount for the SB Tactical pistol stabilizing brace. The brace pictured actually has two mounts which do not interfere with with the original functionality to maintain its “legal” (sigh) status. Pretty slick.

I’d like to take a moment to make one simple statement (opinion) to our U.S. readers: Repeal the NFA.

A shooter can dream, right?

    I love MI gear. One of these days I’m gonna finally get around to getting one of their handguards for my LR308.

    Very nice. One more reason I want an MP5.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Hopefully the NFA dies soon and American made MP5s become as common as AR15s.

    Why bother making accessories for pistol caliber shoulder stocked weapons that are about as useless as throwing a rock.

      Some agencies are still using these. I am issued one. This provides options.

  • JSmath

    Me gusta.

  • Mike Cramer

    MI ripped off the design of extending the slots under the triple frame from Dakota Tactical, who did it 2 years ago.

    It’s kind of funny. These arm braced pistols are just as useful as a SBR, but besides saving $200 and an 8-9 month wait, also have several other advantages. One of the biggest is that you can legally conceal one if you are legally able to CCW. Most states have laws against carrying rifles or shotguns concealed, but it is perfectly legal to have one of these in a backpack or bag. The same goes for transporting in a vehicle. You also don’t have to file paperwork with the ATF if you want to take one of these across state lines. There is also the issue of cost. These new SB Tactical braces list for $250, but that is a bargain compared to the $200 Tax Stamp, engraving and 922R parts.

    I’m kind of conflicted because I have both the full sized and k sized MKE MP5 clones. I’ve already sent in the paperwork for the full sized one, but these new SB Tactical braces look really nice. I guess on the k you loose the ability to use a forward pistol grip with a pistol brace. I could probably live without one though.
