The Heckler & Koch SP5 9mm Pistol features one of HKs legendary Eight and a half-inch barrels that has HK’s iconic 3 lug method of attaching suppressors. HK has also included 1/2 x 28 threads just in case you’re so broke from buying the SP5 that you can’t afford a 3 lug adapter for your suppressor, you’re still covered. You’ll also have a charging handle on the forward left side of the gun that can be locked open and then slapped to charge the weapon. I’m not sure that there’s anything cooler than this, and it just adds so much to the nostalgia of the mp5. Another huge thing that has been sadly missing from every other MP5 or even all roller lock variants that HK has ever brought to the states for civilians, is the paddle mag release. This is the way the gun was designed and just feels so much better than the button that is also present, but I’m pretty sure that no one ever uses as long as the paddle is available. It comes with the wide plastic handguard, and this is my favorite handguard for the MP5, but there are many, many available to choose from, and further customize your SP5. I only had a couple on hand, but they all fit without any issue. It comes from HK with just an end cap with a sling loop on the back, but there are many braces and stocks available that should all fit just fine on the back of your SP5.
Shooting the SP5 is an absolute dream, and just like the real MP5, the recoil impulse is so smooth and pleasant and that comes from the roller delayed blowback operating system. This is a fairly unique operating system that very few firearms use. Basically 2 rollers on either side of the bolt recess into indentions in the receiver; upon firing pressure builds in the chamber until it unlocks these rollers allowing the bolt to move rearward. But, just that fraction of a second that the rollers provide, allows more pressure to escape the barrel making felt recoil lighter. It also allows the bolt itself to be lighter, so you don’t have a heavy reciprocating mass in the gun while firing, like so many other 9mm sub guns.
