is that from a flat?
I have a MP5K receiver that I need the front trunion and cocking tube welded in.
Anyone know of a good HK builder that can do this?

I wish I could help you, I'd love to test run it with a few hundred rounds.
Anybody thats a good tig welder could do it for you. Most custom bikers will know someone who tig welds, just ask around. Good luck with your build.
Excuse my ignorance, but if someone does that type firearm work for another, isn't that consider manufacturing and subject to the proper license ??
I also thought I remember a recent thread where Stan is getting setup for manufacturing and specializing TIG welding.
Did I do that?
I would only let one peson work on it. Jeff Walters aka Ghilliebear2000 over on the HKPRO Board. He has been helping me with my 91 7.62x39 prototype rifle. Video clip of prototype. http://s5.photobucket.com/player.swf...fs=1&os=1&ap=1
Tell him HART1 sent you. He is the best!

Yeah, Ghilliebear on the HKPRO forums can do it.
Its really not that tough to do yourself if you have a welder, the tough part is making sure that the trunnion is totally square with the rails before welding in.
However, if you were to do this for a customer (have it shipped, do the work, and ship it back or otherwise take posession) it is gunsmithing, IF this is a registered 100% receiver, the customer owns it and is asking for the work to be done. General gunsmithing, if it requires transferring possession of the weapon (overnight posession) should be done by a licensed gunsmith with a federal firearms license and logged into the books.
If however the person doing the job can do it while you wait, the receiver is 100%, and no transfer takes place, the individual doing the work is neither manufacturing or taking possession, and consequently needs no license or federal permission.
I believe I have a pretty good understanding of the topic, but as is true in all dealings with the feds, do not quote me.
