LOL let me give you short answer Hell no...
MKE comes the closest IMO
What is the consensus among owners, are any of the clones as good as or better than an original HK, 91,93,94,89---??
You went full retard, man. Never go full retard...
MKE isn't as pretty but it's as good.
The fit and finish on the last few MKEs I saw was HORRIBLE. like crappy SW bad...
07 FFL/02 SOT
So not worth wasting money on the clones?
In my humble opinion, original HK is the standard, and all others fall short to some degree or another, even if they come close. However, for the money, you get a reasonable facsimile which will function about as well, depending upon the maker, and the quality of the parts you choose. I have not seen or used an MKE, Springfield Armory, FMP, Vector, the latest DJF guns. My opinion is based on observation of the web and owning at various times a CA 89, a Turnfab MP5K clone, HK94, an HK SP89, and a Dakota Tactical D54P... I still own my SP89/MP5K-N, HK94/MP5 sbr, and the D54P.

Personally, I would not buy a genuine HK roller lock due to the fact that I shoot thousands of rounds through my guns in semi and full auto. Seems like a waste of money to buy an HK just to shoot the hell out of it and kill it's resale value.
Get a good clone (Ghilliebear or Chopstix) and use the money you save on the gun purchase for ammo or towards a full auto sear.

My PTR 91 has been just as reliable/accurate and looks just as good as my HK 91 and when I bought it new was 1/3rd the price/value
Yes Virginia, there are ancient conspiracies in high places
German guns, German girls, German cars, German beer and German dogs.. what's not to like?
Thanks for the information.
