In this guide we help you find the best mp5 optic mount so you can modernize your MP5.

Here is what to look for in a good optic mount for the MP5:

  • 4 or more points of contact
  • Perfect alignment to the axis of the bore without offset
  • Quality material that doesn't flex during repeated recoils

The easiest way to install a sight on the MP5 is to install a claw mount on the receiver.

Our favorite is the Sphur Claw mount made from 7075 T6 Aluminum and you can get it here on OpticsPlanet.

MP5 Rear Sight Base Rail Mount

The removal of the Mp5 rear sight is required. It works with authentic HK Mp5, HK94, MP5K, SP89, HK SP5K, and other clones.

It’s low profile so you can replace the rear sight and install any optic mount as close to your eye as possible.

They offer different length as well.
