A New HK SP5 For Sale in 2019
This civilian version of the legendary military hardware, the Heckler & Koch MP5 pistol, is a thing of beauty. It has changed significantly recently, of course, as the longer barrel pistol has replaced the retro styling that we came to know and love.
Now you get the 8.86 inch Navy barrel that comes with a threaded tri-lug for easy attachment of muzzle devices. You also get a proper handguard and a longer sight base.
It’s interesting that HK has opted for the longer layout. Especially at a time when the likes of Sig Sauer are going even shorter with their barrels on the Sig Copperhead. Check that out and other rivals for the Heckler & Koch that you can find here on our list of the best 9mm AR-style pistols for sale in 2021.
There’s no doubt that the new version is a more controllable and accurate weapon. It is still held to the same lofty high standard by people that rely on Close Quarters Combat weapons for work. Professional opinions matter, it’s just the way it is..
Mercenaries And Security Love Their HK
Private security love the compact size of a serious gun that can hold up to 30 rounds with the biggest mag and can still just about remain concealed.
They also love the Roller Delayed Blowback action that is the HK SP5’s signature, and the sights. Although theres’s a lot to be said for putting a red dot up there.
Special forces from around the world adopted this gun as their own, too, thanks to its portability and light weight. Also reliability thanks to that roller delayed blow back action. It’s a high standard indeed.
But there were always significant visual differences between the boxy civilian offering that some people still prefer, and the mil spec fully automatic version. That iconic civilian SMG was based on the snubnosed HK MP5K pistol, a serious sub machine gun for the mililtary and specialist LEOs in 1976 when the first prototype was launched.
To get the look, if not the feel, of the Heckler & Koch HK MP5 Sub Machine Gun, you had to buy a clone or get spares and the armorer’s wrench. It was kinda weird…
Not any more.
