POTD: Pew Pew Pew with a Heckler & Koch MP5 SD

    The question is does the Heckler & Koch MP5 SD really go Pew Pew Pew, or what sound does it make if we have to type it down? Perhaps Phopp, phopp, phopp is a better description? For sure it is going to be quite a hush sound compared to the normal MP5s below.

    Notice how much smoke is coming out through the ejection port as well.

    In case you didn’t know, the MP5 SD is still in production. SD is short for Schalldämpfer, which is German for “sound suppressor”.
