The Zenith Z-5 9mm Roller Delayed Carbine

    Zenith and MKE have been busy. While earlier this week we discussed the new Z-43P rifle, today we can relay the announcement of a 9mm roller delayed carbine. Sporting (get it) a 16.1” barrel and the apppropriate number of U.S. made parts, the Z-5 is 922r compliant firearm. Meaning it can be imported and sold as a rifle and not a pistol.

    In this configuration you are just $200 and a wait away from a more traditional looking HK style gun. Details, pricing and specifications can be found below.


    The Zenith Z=5 Carbine

    Aside from its longer barrel (16.1 inches) and configuration as a 922r compliant rifle, the Zenith Z-5 Rifle is dimensionally and operationally identical to a Z-5RS. A good option for those who would like to own a Z-5RS SBR, but are not willing to incur the expense or hassle of registration, this rifle comes equipped with a US-made 3-lug-mounted flash hider, a US-made tropical wide forearm, a US-made hammer, trigger, and sear, and a US-made A2-style fixed stock.

    The Z-5 Rifle is covered by a five-year warranty, and it ships in a 42-inch Plano All Weather Rifle Case with three magazines, a Picatinny optics rail, a military-style sling, two extra takedown pins, a boresnake and Slip 2000 cleaning oil.
