West Hurley M5 Pistol questions -
Posted 19 February 2020 - 12:28 PM
1) Would this have a steel receiver if the serial number were under p200? It is not in my possession so I am unable to verify if it is steel or aluminum yet.
2) Why did the WH drums only hold 39 rounds?
3) Will a 50 round drum work in it as well?
4) It has the blade sight on front of the finned barrel but I want to install a Cutts compensator on it and wondered if I need the pinned or the threaded compensator to do so?
I appreciate any helpful insight you guys can offer, thanks!
Sorry for the all the questions, just starting out with these but am no stranger to the machine gun world.

To my knowledge all A5 pistols had aluminum receivers ... A drum is a drum ... 10, 39, 50, or 100 round, they all insert the same. They had 13.5 inch barrels that again, to my knowledge were not threaded, just equipped with a press on ring sight ... If you want to install a cutts type compensator it should be pinned. (You won't want it flying off the barrel)

A new kahr type smooth comp should fit on and be able to be pinned in place.
