No .45 ACP MP5, just the UMP and its civilian counterpart, the USC.

they did make an MP5 in 10mm though, right?

Yep, they made an MP5 in 10mm for the FBI. Even had a bolt hold open. They also made a .40S&W version.

It would seem they made MP5's in both 10mm and .40S&W. (http://www.hkpro.com/MP5-10.htm)

The MP-5 in 40 & 10 mm had a bolt hold open feature. I never used it and would change magazine after a few bursts.

Bill Fleming was a Class II manufacturer here who made lots of HK conversions the factory said couldn't be made (or that they wouldn't make). He made a small number of .45 acp MP5s that used Grease Gun magazines, and a smaller number that used Thompson magazines. Picture of one here:

Every time I see someone mention the UMP or the USC, I want a USC SBR with a can, much like the UMP pictured above...

zach, that's what my SBR is that i'm waiting on from the ATF. i got the usc conversion done by www.hdps.org so it looks just like the one in the picture except it currently has a 16 inch barrel. after i get my paperwork, i'm cutting it down to 8. or, buying one of the other barrels with the integral can thing.
it's a lot of fun to shoot, even with the 16" barrel.
