It pains me to admit this, but my post on the H&K 97/Civilian MP7 was nothing more than an April Fools’ Day hoax.
For those who believed it, I apologize. But kudos to those who figured it out. I tried my best to make it as elaborate as possible. I bought an airsoft MP7, a box of 4.6×30, and a real MP7 magazine to try and make it as legitimate as possible. I had a friend take the photo me “shooting” it at the range, and the targets were shot with an FN Five-seveN pistol to make it look as real as possible.
With all the buzz the post generated on the net, maybe it will show H&K that there is real demand for such a gun, but for now there is no civilian MP7 in sight.
