Top 9 H&K Semi-Automatic MP5K / SP5K Alternatives You Can Buy TODAY. Why Wait for H&K to catch up?

    With the recent announcement by Heckler and Koch USA that the SP5K (MP5K-ish) will be available to the U.S. market, also comes a flood of consumer emotions.

    Excitement: “This is awesome!”

    Euphoria: “Yipee Ki Yay, Mother F******!”

    Anxiety: “Is there any chance i will be able to afford one of these?”

    Shock: “How much above MSRP?”

    Depression: “What, no paddle mag release?”

    Anger: “Stupid H&K hates Americans.”

    Defiance: “I’ll never buy a neutered MP5K. Never!”

    Acceptance: “It’s fine. The Hi-Point Carbine is basically the same thing.”

    (No disrespect, Hi-Point)

    Whatever the reason, you now refuse to even consider buying the SP5K, even though it has been your dream to own an MP5 ever since John McClane shot some terrorists (bearer bond mega-thieves) at the Nakatomi Plaza high rise in 1988. I’m not projecting here or anything.

    Standby, you have options.

    The American market contains a handful of H&K builders/importers of MP5s that, while they may not necessarily be more affordable than the SP5K, can be more technically accurate when compared to the original.

    Both the prices and quality run the gamut – I could post rave reviews and negative experiences on at least some of the companies listed below, but it would only be unfair second-hand internet chatter. I guess the only way to know is to shoot them all side-by-side. Humbly, I volunteer for the job.

    Until that epic review happens, we are left mainly with internet research and word of mouth. Take some time to explore the MP5 “clone” options on the market. Here are most of the commercially available Roller Lock/H&K Builders listed in alphabetical order (if I missed one, let me know in the comments section):

    By the way, I don’t really think that H&K hates America or Americans, but that is a dissertation for a another time.
