    In the past, there were a number of Turkish imports made by MKE.

    Due largely to import laws, there were many significant differences in detail, so that many in the community shunned them.

    Now (August, 2015) it seems a new importer (Zenith firearms) is making a run at importing more authentic versions of the HK systems.

    Now, understand the price point is not for the faint of heart ($1,700 and up).

    Soooo, the question becomes this.... Has anyone actually had one in hand.

    Has anyone actually fired one (outside of YouTube).

    Are they worth the price..

    Lastly.... What does the Hive think.

    I'm interested in knowing this as well. I'm tempted and like MAC (youtuber), but would like to hear what the board thinks. I can't find one in my area to check out.

    I don't think that the rifles are 922r compliant. That's why they come with those goofy 10-rds mags and you can't just snap in a regular mag.

    I have not fired one, yet, but from what I have heard, they are nicer than the HK originals.

    I saw a youtube video on one and it fired great. For the price they appear to be a good gun. Definitely something to think about

    I really want to take a look at this:

    MKE Z-5 Rifle.

    I'd like to get a tax stamp and make it an SBR.
