    Default H&K SP5 (MP5 is back).

    "The Heckler & Koch MP5 is arguably the most imitated pistol-caliber carbine in the world. But even a pretty good copy is still just a copy. The truth is, you can only get a real HK from HK.

    And now there is finally an authentic sporting version of the MP5 in the US, and it’s a real HK. The New SP5 will make all those generic MP5 copies out there look like nothing more than gun store consolation prizes.

    The SP5 was developed by Heckler & Koch as a semiautomatic, civilian sporting pistol that matches the look and feel of the legendary MP5 submachine gun.

    Designed and manufactured to meet the definition of a civilian pistol, the SP5 is loaded with authentic features, like a Navy barrel with threaded tri-lug adaptor, paddle magazine release, fluted chamber and chrome-lined bore.

    The backbone of the SP5 is the roller-delayed blowback operating system, which is legendary for its accuracy, reliability, and smooth shooting dynamic. Originally perfected on the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle, it has been used on several other HK firearms still serving today around the world.

    The SP5 is manufactured in Heckler & Koch’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany. It retains many of the critical elements of the MP5, including its precision-machined components and attention to detail. This high level of quality and workmanship is a result of making the SP5 in the same factory, on the same lines, and by the same workforce that has been making MP5s for years.

    For more comfortable shooting, the SP5 is equipped with an elastic “bungee” sling. The sling is easily installed by snapping it onto the sling swivel hardware located on the rear of the receiver. Using the sling makes firing the SP5 more stable and reduces fatigue.

    A wide variety of accessories can be added to increase its functionality. As the world’s most popular pistol-caliber carbine platform, the SP5 is supported by an aftermarket loaded with lots of great accessories, from rails and handguards all the way up to everything you need to make your own legally-registered short-barreled rifle*.

    Some hitting the street in the 2300-2500 range.

    There's a dealer that got one in very close to me, but he won't give me a price yet "because it just came in and the girl that checks things in and prices them isn't here today."


    Not sure I'd buy one other than potential resale later. To me, it's a downgrade from the Scorpion and MPX that I already have. Plus, HK is more proud of their magazines than Sig is of theirs.

    The hate that it's receiving by HK fanboys is the receiver block, preventing you from using your sear in it.

    No, this just came out a few hours ago. You may be thinking of the SP5k.

    I've been watching the thread on HK Pro. In addition to the dislike for the FA BCG block, there's dislike for the 1/2x28 thread (standard threads are 1/2x32), the finish, and a few other small bits.

    I'm on the fence. I've wanted a higher quality MP5 to complement my Coharie CA89, but I don't know about dropping that much money right now for a gun I already mostly have. And personally, I'd rather have no threads on the barrel at all (3 lug is better, and the thread protector just makes 3 lug use a bigger pain).

    Apparently only 500 hitting the shores for now. Another 500 perhaps in January.

    I'd be a buyer around $2000-$2200. One can hope.
