    I contacted a local class 3 dealer today in hopes to get started on purchasing a MP5K in semi-auto.. I was told that HK no longer imports that particular weapon. I want to know if there is anyway i can purchase this weapon. And I can not find a price on this weapon can anyone help me out?

    thanks,

    It will save you a $200 tax stamp and some paper work (as long as you don't put a stock on it). They are considered handguns.

    I thought the "K" was for "kurz" -- the German word for "short" -- and referred to barrel length. If it has a shoulder stock on it, it's a rifle. If the barrel is less than 16" long, and it has a shoulder stock, then it's a short barreled rifle (SBR) and is subject to the tax stamp. What am I missing?

    dude, there are the stock codes and designations on my link, from HK. I remember the MP5K from the federal stock system.

    Whatever you say friend. Let's not waste anymore space on this OT nonsense.


    For_Hire Vulcan may be your best bet. It won't be an original H&K but it will save you a lot of money.

    Vector and Bobcat(Red Rock Arms) are the only ones with decent customer relations. A lot of companies in the HK clone biz have very questionable quality and service, Vector is pretty good though.

    Heavy Metal is correct. K is short for Kurz which means short.

    The MP5K is the short MP5. It is not a pistol. Even without the stock it comes with a front grip which immediately disqualifies it from being a pistol.

    The SP-89 on the other hand is a pistol because it does not have the front grip or a stock.

    I thought MP5K/SP89= pistol version,
    MP5K-PDW= folding stock version

    You could have gotten one for $42 here: http://www.gunsamerica.com/guns/976731896.htm
    :confused::confused:

    Depending on how much $$ you have you can find a few full auto MP5K's but it looks like SP89s are scarce.
    Does the vertical foregrip on the semi ones make them an AOW?

    A friend of mine has a V53 from Vector, good fit/finish and works well. Their Uzi's seem pretty good, next to an IMI Uzi they still look decent.

    Bobcat? As in formally Special Weapons and how many other name changes?

    http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/055/ripoff0055501.htm

    I've owned several HK MP5 clones and I would never buy another unless JLD came out with one. The other two I owned I bought used for about half the price of what they sold for new and it was still more then they were worth IMO:barf:


    The only HK clone company I would trust is JLD. No experience with Vector so I can't comment on their quality.

    ive shot my friends mp5k. It's pretty fun. But burning through the ammo gets expensive.

    I thought the "K" meant "Kirche Gewer". Jeez, no wonder the parishioners at St. Mary's gave me weird looks! :D

    I've heard good things about Vector, and lots of very bad things about Bobcat. I don't have personal experience with either of them.

    thanks for all the links..I know very little about these companies but i'm going to get a MP5K just choosing one that will work very well is my only concern.

    does anyone have bad track records with atlantic, vulcan, or vector? if so would you please elaborate on both the positives and negatives?...thanks
