Murdoc @ GunPundit found a photo of 3rd Infantry Division troops examining a pile of H&K MP5K briefcase guns presumably in Iraq.

I have always thought this type of gun would appeal to tin pot dictators like Saddam. Why not just conceal the MP5K under a coat and then have the advantage of sights, trigger control, quick magazine change etc.

    Mp5k are awesome though they are sort of of weak put bullets kill no matter what.
    i go airsofting alot and im planing on getting on for CQB and i dont see why the terrorists dont just hide out in a hole with that gun because its so compact and just peek out of the hole and shoot

    Since they aren't technically an NFA item by themselves, I wonder if theres any chance some of these could make it to the states?

    The ones already here go for $2,500+.
