Not an MP5K...

But I don't recall Willis, in Tears of the Sun, using the broomstick on his M4 anywhere during the ending firefight except at the start of phase 2 (when the team is hunkered behind the downed tree). And that's opposed to Cole Hauser, who holds the grip during his entire usage of the same weapon.

Though it can be argued that it was second nature for him since he carried an M60E4, with a built-in foregrip, throughout the movie.
