BTW. The MP5 is a 3 pin swingdown as well (I grew up with one).
I would very much like to see a picture of an MP5 with a 3 pin swing down lower as I have never seen one.

Clipperman...

Again, the lower you are thinking about is the one called "Clipped & Pinned".

ummm.....
I only see two pins on that lower. One in the front (where the shelf would be on a clipped and pinned) and one in the back.

Where is the third pin?

The third pin is coverd by the lower. There are 3 there. Thats why they ARE called 3-pin Swing Downs.. Never-mind. Im not going to argue with you.

OK, you and I are obviously speaking two different languages.

The MP5 link you posted to has a RECEIVER with three holes. The LOWER only utilizes two of those three holes. The LOWER is NOT a 3 pin lower, as it can only hold two pins at a time.

A factory G3 has a 3 pin LOWER. One in the front and two in the back. It uses 3 pins simlutaneously when attached to the receiver.

A clipped and pinned MP5 lower uses only 1 pin, but is made to look like it uses two. A clipped and pinned G3 lower uses the two pins in the back, but the one in front is false.
