Zenith Z-5P Pistol

    z-5P pistol

    Zenith Quest Corporation is set to release the Z-5P pistol in the US market.

    Zenith attended the 2014 SHOT Show and displayed a number of products that the company was considering for import into the US. It would appear that the Z-5P is one of the first that will be sold.

    The pistol appears very similar to a HK MP5. The guns are chambered for the 9mm cartridge and use a semi-automatic roller-lock delayed blowback operation. While Zenith does not state any compatibility with the HK, the guns are made by Turkish manufacturer MKE. MKE makes MP5 submachine gun clones.

    The front sight is a protected post, while the rear is a rotating drum. Magazines are steel and hold 30-rounds.

    The Z-5P has a barrel length of 5.8″ and an overall length of 13.7″. The barrel is threaded (1/2×28) for the addition of a suppressor or other muzzle device. Total weight (unloaded) of the gun is 4.6 pounds.

    All it needs now is a SIG arm brace.

    This gun should be shown at the 2015 SHOT Show in January.
