Ideal for backyard .22LR plinking or more serious range training, the new MP5 .22s offer an authentic feel and controls to the real centrefire deal. The rimfire MP5 are made in Germany, under license, by Umarex and have an MSRP of $479.

Rimfire MP5 rifle (HK USA)

The rifle model comes with a 16.1-inch barrel and a collapsing stock – the longer barrel is hidden inside a fake suppressor and the gun has been styled to look like an MP5SD. The pistol model comes stockless and weighs in at 5.9 pounds. Both guns feed from 10 or 25 round magazines.

TFBtv’s James Reeves got an early look at two of the first guns in the country, check out his video here for the best look at the new guns!

    You know... An MP5 in 22 caliber just doesn't have the appeal of a 9mm MP5 to me. I think I would rather just have a Ruger Charger. It feels to me like it is the same thing, but in an MP5 shell.
