    I bought an HK91 in the 80's. The trigger completely sucked. In a world of compromise, HK starts with the trigger.

    Accuracy was also quite poor. About 3" groups at 100 yards with a Leupold Benchrest scope in place on a factory HK mount. I could get 2" out of it if I shot 110 grain bullets.

    But hey, they look cool.

    I don't remember what it was called but it was chambered in 5.56and was very much like the G3.

    I was issued all three of those at various times; that SD my was absolute favorite, soooooo smooth and quiet; the little K/PDW was my least favorite, although it has great looks.

    The SD has to be about the easiest - and most fun - shooting of all small arms. The only thing is that it's dirty and, of course, drops the velocity and thus energy of the 9mm.

    I like the Ks. They're definitely harder to shoot w the higher cyclic rate and esp w no stock. Attaching the PDW stock makes them much easier to shoot well.

    Just curious, were u military or LE?

    Situation dependent; protective detail, compact surveillance rig (plain clothes cover detail of operations) etc; another tool in the box, basically;

    Nice guns, probably (and I have shot a variety of subguns over the years) one of the best submachine gun platforms ever made.

    Awesome!! I was issued a MP5 by a former employer, I loved the unlimited trigger time we were allowed. When I moved to a supervisory position I had to turn in my MP5 and was issued a G36ke. It was also a great shooter but I preferred the MP5.

    I certainly like the MP5 far more than the UMP or the G36.

    I have a real hk 93... and one of the imported things similar.. but many have some issues..

    Pre 1986 hk stuff is awesome.. pres bush senior decided to screw us on that one... in my mind every bit as bad as obama and clinton.

    HK91 USP45 Expert, USP40, P7M10, VP9,....SP89 (sadly sold this one)

    Except for the HK91, magazine cost 3x any other magazine. The P7M10 mags have run as much as $150 each.
