Where to buy a HK SP5

HK aren’t just expensive, they can be seriously frustrating to find in the first place. So to save endless hours of surfing, here are direct links to our favorite dealers.

If none of them have one, there just isn’t one. But we think you’re about to get lucky…

We have dutifully included the H&K SP5 9mm in every ‘best of’ list going in recent times, while noting that nobody actually seemed to have one in stock. Especially in the final throes of the SP5K days.

The new gun, with the navy barrel, has bought the SP5 into line with consistent military and civilian styling. But it’s still hard to find one.

They were basically as rare as rocking horse shit. They still can be at times. Once you have one, it’s awesome. Getting one though, can be a royal PITA.

Unless you’re here, and you’re prepared to pay a little more than the recommended retail price, because, frankly, you’re tired of waiting and you want your damned gun…

Is the H&K SP5 Pistol The Best 9mm SMG?

The Heckler & Koch SP5 pistol is the best SMG in history, quite possibly, and has been into action with the likes of the SAS, Navy SEALs and many more in legendary MP5 submachine gun spec.

That fully auto and the mil-spec weapon has evolved over the years and now comes with a collapsing PDW style brace and a simpler handguard. The iconic threaded tri-lug adapter is still there though.

It is also one of the best submachine guns in the world, as voted for by the elite special forces, counter terrorist units and SWAT teams around the world.

It’s a 9mm that can hang on a sling, or you can fit a telescopic or folding stock to it and turn it into an absolute beast.

You can also buy 40-round magazines for your HK SP5 9mm ammo to give this pocket monster an added sting in the tail. Also, get ready to slap that paddle magazine release more than you should. It’s part of the ownership experience.

In various forms, the Special Forces have relied on the H&K SP5 9mm pistol for decades. And you can too.

Put the right red dot up top and this is about as operator as pistols get. That navy barrel with threaded tri-lug adaptor is way more famous than it should be, for instance.

The HK’s time might have come with the special forces, as the improved suppression capabilities of AAC 300 Blackout pistols mean that the likes of the Sig Sauer Rattler and Daniel Defense DDM4V7P newcomers are taking over slowly from the old Heckler & Koch Sporting Pistol.

But this is an icon, the HK SP5 pistol is already in the firearms Hall of Fame and it can still hold its own with any of those weapons in the right circumstances.

Fill it With the Best 9mm Ammo

If you don’t have a suppressor, then the HK and the cheaper 9mm Luger might actually be the more versatile weapon thanks to the large variety of 9mm ammunition on the market. And cheap ammo.

Seriously, fill this thing with the best 9mm hollow point and you have a total weapon of mass destruction on your hands, depending on magazine capacity.

9mm has taken over as the self-defense round of choice, which has brought great strides in the ballistics technology.

The barrel length on the HK means you’re really looking at a short-range, self-defense gun, that’s it’s main window. So the 9mm Luger makes a lot of sense, it’s just that Blackout ammunition gives you options.

Fill this with cheap ammo and it’s a faithful, low recoil range toy that does a surprisingly good job in terms of accuracy and repeatability, despite that short barrel length.

What is the Heckler and Koch SP5 Range

A good reflex sight on this and you can take aim up to 200 meters, and be pretty sure you’re going to nail the target. So yeah, with some hardcore ammo, this could even be a weird hunting weapon for small game and varmints.

The long distance accuracy really is scary good, although obviously the Heckler & Koch SP5 pistol is no AR-15 rifle.

It’s not really meant for that life. This is a weapon of war, particularly urban warfare where the compact nature of the HK SP5 pistol means that only the 300 Blackout pistols can really stay with it. It’s a great option for home defense, general shooting at the range and just as an awesome thing to own for the rest of your life.

A Gun We Will Remember Forever?

It’s an icon, one of the most famous guns of all time, and it will be remembered long after it is gone. The gun reviews and user reviews online absolutely love this thing. Not one of them says it isn’t good value and at this price, that’s something in itself.

Get your Heckler & Koch SP5 pistol caliber carbine platform for sale while you can, and if it’s gone by the time you click to buy, don’t blame us. We tried to tell you…

So treat yourself, buy a gun online and make it one of the best 9mm pistols of all time.

What is HK Roller-Delayed Blowback Operating System?

The system is sometimes confused with the Roller Locked system, but they’re different things. It’s a rare system and only a few manufacturers have dared to go this way, even though it has been us since WWII.

It’s a system that the industry agrees is designed and manufactured to meet improved standards of accuracy and reliability for the Heckler & Koch SP5 pistol. It’s all win then? Not quite…

The system does limit your loads to a narrow weight band, but that’s less of an issue with pistol 9mm, especially for the military that tend to standardize. So for this pistol developed by Heckler & Koch, it makes perfect sense for the H&K SP5 9mm Luger.

This video explains it better than we ever could, so enjoy it if you’re into this kind of detail stuff. This is the heart of the SP5 9mm Luger semiautomatic Civilian Sporting Pistol that was developed by Heckler & Koch to be the best in the world.

Can You Still Buy the H&K SP5K 9mm?

Yes, you can still buy the stubbier and retro looking SP5K 9mm with the classic bungee sling at the rear. Not through official channels, but there are still box fresh versions of the 4.43 inch barrel length Heckler & Koch SP5 pistol sporting version that you might just want more.

HK SP5K is still for sale in 2022. Get yours now.

Don’t think you’ll save money going for last season’s H&K SP5 9mm Luger Pistol Caliber Carbines and clever gun deals, though. The curious blend of blocky styling and retro tubes, precision machined components, picatinny rail and sling are still fantastically popular and this semi-automatic pistol is much loved around the world.

In fact this is arguably the most imitated pistol caliber carbine in the world. There are lots of clones out there, some are a pretty good copy and one day we’ll cover the best ones. But for now, we’re sticking to the originals.

Alot of people like the smaller footprint, iconic rear sight and front combo, and even the trigger pull of the old gun. The price was close to $3,000 the last time we checked…

The short barrel, the fact it sits so comfortably on a sling and the lethal accuracy and reliability have made the military version even more popular than the definition of a civilian pistol, the semi-automatic H&K SP5 9mm.

The Old Gun is Prettier

The consumer-grade semi auto HK SP5K 9mm and legendary Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun used to have a lot of differences, and we still like the old semi-automatic pistol compared to the new SP5. Visually at least.

The styling is just perfect, retro chic SMG that is a subtle homage to the old world MP40 SMGs that were standard issue in World War II.

The semiautomatic H&K SP5 9mm Civilian Sporting Pistol (Hence SP in the name) marks the return of the legendary HK blowback operating system that first surfaced on the HK G3 rifle for sale.

Now You Want a Pistol 9mm MP5 Instead?

You used to be able to buy a Heckler & Koch MP5 machine gun right now as used by military and Law Enforcement the world over. But you will need the Third Class firearms license and then there’s the small matter of the price tag for that select fire switch.

Actually 150K bought you a set of 3 HK MP5 vintage firearms from gunbroker Euro Optics. It was a hell of a set, with consecutive serial numbers, precision machined components and it pretty much is the ultimate collection for machine gun enthusiasts. And free shipping was included if we remember correctly. But it’s gone now…

They were designed and manufactured to meet the highest military standards, after all. So the rate of fire will blow your mind and your target away.

We’ll cover these separately to avoid confusing the issue too much. But if you’ve got $150,000 to spend on guns, for some reason, and you want the best, this was for you. But not anymore…

This was real, once, although it sold long ago and is really just an example now.

HK MP5 Machine gun for sale. We do find the occasional submachine gun, which requires a Class III license.

Modern semi-auto H&K SP5 9mm Pistol Alternatives

Now it’s a great gun, but the HK is very expensive. That’s why this is arguably the most imitated pistol caliber carbine in the world.

So you might want to look at the options with other semi-automatic 9mm AR pistols and the modern AAC 300 Blackout pistols.

So you’ve got the likes of the CZ Scorpion Evo 3, Angstadt Arms and others soaring up the Pistol Caliber Carbine charts. They all provide very real competition for the H&K SP5 9mm Luger semi-automatic pistol. As does the B&T GHM9, a budget alternative to the H&K.

Daniel Defense, the Sig Sauer Rattler and Battle Arms Developments are all waiting for your money with the best AR pistols in 5.56 NATO and 300BLK.

Palmetto State Armory could also sell you about 7 of their guns for one high price, high spec HK. But the trigger pull feels different and the rate of fire isn’t quite the same.

They offer a different system and a much lower price tag than the Heckler and Koch SP5 9mm Sporting Pistol. But then you already knew that, and here you are anyway. Sooooooo, do what you want, we guess…

But the Heckler & Koch SP5 9mm Luger is the archetype of the genre, the definition of a civilian pistol and the you really want to slap that paddle magazine release. You know it, too.

If you’ve made it this far, then well you might like to look at some alternatives, because you’re a big reader and we like that about you.

So have a look here if you want to check out the alternatives to the high price, high spec Heckler & Koch SP5 9mm Luger that law enforcement agencies and military units prefer, go here:

How to Buy Guns Online

OK so we get into the process a little more here. But really it’s easy to buy a gun online these days. You just select the best gun store for you nationwide, the State doesn’t matter. Then select a local FFL dealer where you receive the firearm and go through the relevant paperwork and background check.
