Had high hopes for these but it seems from the pictures circulating on other forums that as actual owners have received these HK has gone to great lengths to prevent full auto Sears from working in these. As a sear owner, I’ll be happy with my preban hosts and PTR.

I would have been surprised only if no such changes had been made. This thing is simply not an MP5, no matter how badly buyers want it to be.

Sad, but woefully true. That having been said, for the buyer that does not own a sear and who wants to SBR this, it’s a decent gun (although I won’t say MP5).

I suspect this is the initial "first guy on the block" syndrome that happens with a lot of new products upon initial release. I suspect the prices will eventually stabilize below MSRP as supply begins to meet demand.

It's when H&K decides to discontinue them and/or an import restriction that will likely drive prices to much higher levels.

As I under stand it, the bargain on these was at Brownells. They had them for $2599 and were running a 12% discount coupon code. That would have brought them down to $2287.12. THAT would have been a great buy IMO. Whoever got in on that really scored.

LGS got one yesterday and I did not get to make it over.
Will try to slide by today to check it out presuming it is still there. I want it but won’t be buying it.

OK, I guess I get it now. It’s the nomenclature. I watched that video. If we call it the SP5 then all is right in the world. I honestly never thought about it that way. Stupid of me I guess. Similar to calling your AR an M4 or M16.

So I am cured of wanting an MP5. But I really would like an SP5. Lol
