FBI still using 10mm Auto in HK MP5/10?

Discussion in 'Caliber Corner' started by glock20c10mm, Apr 8, 2012.


  1. Is the FBI still making use of the 10mm Auto in the HK MP5/10? I've heard yes, but haven't been able to verify.

    Can anyone say either way, and if so, to what extent?

    What a shame.
     
  6. Ummm, no they don't our local feeb's shoot their 10mm MP's monthly, i pick up their brass.
     
  7. I was told that by an armourer at HQ. Maybe it varies across the country.
     
  8. MP-5 in 10 mm. I wanna shoot it. That would be so cool. :supergrin:
     
  9. They are still using the 10 in some places. One on my employee's husband works for the FBI in PA and still uses the 10, but expects to be transitioned completly over to M4 in a few years.
     
  10. What type of ammo are they using?

  12. Nickeled Rem brass, UMC box stuff i think as there are always green/white boxes in the trash when they leave. I never bothered to look at bullet weight.

    A 10mm MP5 is so awesome that it's sort of like King Arthur's sword in the stone - the FBI doesn't have anybody awesome enough that they can even pick one up. That made them impractical for FBI use.

    dont expect the fbi to use full powered 10mm.
     
  16. Yep, but it is good brass:supergrin:
     
  17. Geez, I didn't know there was a full auto 10mm s.b. rifle.

    What a Frankenstein!
     
  18. Considering the FBI, DHS and etc buy a LOT of .40sw ammo I honestly don't see the reasoning in using a 10mm carbine. Sure the 10mm is more robust round than the .40 however I doubt the feds would use full house 10mm loads anyway. I also doubt the .40 JHP bullets used in 10mm would hold up to the velocities you would see out of a 10mm carbine.
     
  19. They got them back in the real early 90's to go with the then issued S&W 1076's, have had them since but it sounds like they are doing away with them. I've got to handle one but they were out of ammo so i couldn't pull the trigger:crying:
     
  20. I can't imagine there would be anything left except for forensic evidence after some agents with these cannons went blasting into a situation.

    My dad was in the FBI up until a few years ago. I know he had a 10mm MP5 up until the end. Not sure about right now though. I could ask my cousin, he is a special agent...
