    Average price is $35. Factory HK mags, around $70ish.

    Stay away from the ETS MP5 mags!! Total crap!!!

    :cool:

    Well, if you want a real H&K MP-5 it makes quite a bit of sense.

    Sadly not an option for us hampered by FOPA, hence my comment.

    I’m confused as to how or what the FOPA has to do with semi auto MP5

    Too little to late, NOW my clone is lost all its value.

    Who made it? If it's made under license, it'll still hold a good deal of value. For an example of this, compare a Springfield SAR-3/8 or an FMP G3S to an HK 91.

    I'd love to have one if it had a 16" barrel and a stock and didn't cost all that much more than my 9mm AR. I'd even be willing to overlook the fact that it doesn't use Glock magazine like the AR.

    But at that price, in "unwieldy-oversized-pistol" configuration, I'll pass.

    Dang it, I just bought a Zenith Z5P a few months ago, hmmm, might need the real deal to go with the SP5K I bought a couple years ago.

    So I'm guessing the trigger pack can't be exchanged for a full auto one?

    Once you disassemble an HK the price becomes obvious.

    And it confuses AR folks that the HK upper is FFL, not the lower. That blows their minds.

    They are also making the 16" barrel version available in the US. Still will be expensive.

    For the cost....even though I love HK, I would rather have an AR

    There is nothing too impressive inside an HK. They do like to overcharge for them though.
    The upper being the FFL item isn't that unusual. The millions of Ruger MK owners know all about it.

    Welcome to the party pal.

    I would have paid that price, 10 years ago.

    If they sell a 16" carbine or if you cared to SBR the "pistol" with a real stock, it would be nice to have a PCC that worked.
    The popular 9mm ARs are not exactly paragons of reliability.

    One of the most fun guns I have ever fired.

    Interesting. I'm still waiting to see how the clone from PSA works out. Hopefully it'll be available sooner than later.
