MP5

Yeah, I tried one in full auto mode out in Vegas at the Gun Store. Awesome firearm.

I now understand the difference of a full auto weapon like an AK (which I tried) as compared to a this weapoon firing 9mm. The AK has the power and I was on target with the firearm. But my shoulder felt the output from the AK and there was more force with staying on target.

The MP5 with 9mm... You don't even feel the kick. I think I could have fired the MP5 with one hand and I wouldn't have noticed the kick in full auto. Good close quarters splat gun. I basically outlined the bad guy on the target like a drawing pen on a writing board.

I'd love a full auto MP5 and I have the class III license but it's one of the more expensive full auto arms to grab hold of. Very nice though. Worth it.

I bet the MP5 it does fire very smoothly. The one thing that I would be concerned with is the accuracy. What did you think about that.

HK MP5
Visually appealing and a great performer.

What variant is this? I couldn't find one that really looked like this one on H&K's website.

I would be concerned

In Semi-Auto you can put a mag through one hole you can cover with a quarter shooting off hand at 25 yards and group 2 inches easily at 100 yards using a RedDot or iron sites if your eyes are good enough.

In FullAuto it is one of the most controllable and accurate which is why it is one of the TOP Critical Response Teams weapon of choice.

I like the UZI, but would take the MP5 over it and the MAC 10 (with a can on it otherwise it wouldn't be near in the same class) any time.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

I only wish ...

I have a Special Weapons copy of the MP5K. It has it's issues but is a kick in the pants to shoot. I only wish I could afford a REAL MP5.

Yes I've shot an older one many a time, actually quiet accurate at 100 yards in semi auto. I like it much better than a MAC 10 .45 thats for sure or the UZI 9 in full auto of semi auto for that matter.

Very controllable and responsive. You won't be reloading any of the brass because of the fluted chamber.

If I had the money to spend on a Class III MP5, I would probably look to finding a semi which could be converted legally to help keep costs down.
