POTD: U.S. Marine with Suppressed H&K MP7

    What could possibly trump our previous U.S. Marine with camouflaged H&K MP7?

    Well, quite possibly this uncamouflaged but suppressed H&K MP7?

    The pistol grip says MP7 A1, and the suppressor says Rotex II, made by B&T Switzerland.

    The suppressor would be this one, dedicated for the MP7 and its rather small caliber: B&T Rotex-II™ SMG/PDW suppressor, cal. 4.6mm x 30.

    The MP7 suppressor was developed by B&T in close collaboration with Heckler and Koch especially for the high performance submachine gun MP7. It is the perfect choice for this weapon and successfully in service with countless MP7 users for many years.

    Above you can see a U.S. Marine preparing to fire a suppressed MP7 during an embassy reinforcement exercise in Bucharest, Romania. Note the flip-up sights on the Picatinny.

    This happened during an annual multilateral security cooperation deployment in the Black Sea, Balkan and Caucasus regions that is designed to enhance participants’ collective professional military capacity, promote regional stability and build enduring relationships with partner nations.

    Below, at another event, you can see U.S. Marine Cpl. Dillon Bradshaw from Alpha Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team Company Europe (FASTEUR), Naval Station Rota, receiving instructions on the operation of the MP7 machine gun by a member of the Romanian intelligence service’s Brigada Antiterorista.

    Aimpoint sights on the MP7s.

    The two pictures above were taken by U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Esdras Ruano in 2015.

    The top, main picture was taken in 2016 by U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Clarence L. Wimberly.


    You know you can’t have a H&K MP7 (you can’t afford it, and you’re not special enough), but IF you could would you rather have yours Suppressed (you can’t hear it) or the Camouflaged one (you can’t see it)?

    Only one choice please, and let us know in the comments below.
