    They would sell like hot cakes one would think.

    This has been discussed over on the AKFiles...there is more to the web then HK specific sites.

    This sounds like good stuff to me. Means zenith has had a great response to their roller lock products from the US and that they are expanding their roller lock product line. Now if a mp5-10 showed up on their product list I may just squee like a schoolgirl. In the mean time, they already have a couple items I'm saving for....need....more....$$$!

    Cheers

    Zenith should have focus on the HK market only from the start. I can imagine the wasted capital and time that could have been used elsewhere, like their Custom Shop that has yet to roll-out. They have been pretty good about most criticisms and actually have corrected some of the issues in the detail work so props to them. A 53 pistol would be pretty sweet, but what ever happened to a MP5SD that everyone was all the rage about a few months back?

    G41, man it would be nice, but I really doubt it. Even the 53 is a stretch as MKEK only manufactures these: http://www.mkek.gov.tr/upload/docs_p...18475KH264.pdf
    "...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."

    Actually it is a LOT like the Z43. The G41 was basically a modified HK33 that accepted STANAG mags, added a forward assist and LBHO. The 3rd burst feature would be irrelevant to a semi-auto only rifle.

    As far a I know, MKE never made any G41s and after HK stopped production they sold the rights to Franchi in Italy.

    So if you want a 9 pound, roller-locked rifle that fires 5.56, the Z43 is the only current production rifle on the table or ever likely to be.

    Default Zenith is now only focusing on roller locks, this could get interesting.

    Read an article about the HK G41 being manufactured by MKE in Turkey. Here is a link. It would be pretty cool to see some here in the US.....

    That said, I did finally get to handle one of the Z-43 with the SB tactical brace and Midwest industries handguard at a gun shop in Indiana. That thing is sweet! Definitely on the list for acquisition.

    Cheers

    I'm glad to hear they are focusing on roller lock products. They have been great to me and I really enjoy my MKEs. They are trucking along just fine with about 3,000 though my Z5-P and 2,000 though my Z5-RS. Both suppressed and unsuppressed.
