HK 53

Post by Gir » Tue Dec 30, 2014 7:16 pm

Do they even make these anymore? I know Classic Army had one (CA-53) and KSC had one (Z530). I can't find them in stock anywhere?

Even if they were in stock, do magazines for these exist?

lol, you just missed it. Scott Messer bought a NIB CA33* from dan like 2 months or so ago, then bought another one, the RIS and all the mags that guges had. he probably has the last one in the area.

*edit - i stand corrected, it was a CA-33, which is basically the full length version. I don't know if anybody has a 53 length airsoft model.

Even a HK33 would probably work. I could try to cut back the charging handle, and use a MP5 grip as a replacement.

I gave him that too. A MC51 Metal front with charging handle.

He got it on...and it looks really good
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

I'm having trouble finding magazines as well. It's looking like this may not be the best purchase, unless there's a way to convert M4 style magazines to fit in the HK53...

330 Hicaps are still available from Hong Kong. Got two on my desk now.

Are you able to get more? Also, do they still make standard/midcaps? I just found out A&K made these for a short period of time as well. But I picked up a CA53 on Ebay finally (guy came off his high horse about it being a super rare piece :roll: ).

Standards are the real rare pieces as well as the 450 Hicaps.

330 are readily available.

Just saw this thread, yeah I got that short barrel onto the parts gun I got from chris and it looks really good, just need to find a shorter inner barrel and stuff for it and should be good to go. It's one of a couple projects I'm slowly working on.
