    Default Quick range report: Zenith Z5-RS

    I was able to get out to the range last night and try out my new Z5-RS. Mine has some mag wobble that was posted about previously and I wanted to get it to the range before contacting Zenith about it.

    I loaded up 10 rounds of 124gr NATO in a mag, and put them down range with no issue. From there, I rotated through all the mags the pistol came with and shot about 100 rounds through it with no hiccups or drama. I didnít try to wiggle the magazine while shooting since I didnít want to accidentally slip and put a round in the ceiling.

    Everything shot as smoothly as one would expect from any MP5, either HK or clone.

    The pistol is hard to shoot without a brace or SBR conversion. Thankfully I have a brace on the way and one of these days will file the paperwork to put an A2 stock on it. Last nightís range trip was basically a quick function test of a new firearm. And that function test went well!

    Congrats! Those Zeniths are a ball to shoot and with little practice you'll be shooting one ragged hole in no time, even with irons! Enjoy!

    Those Zeniths are junk what with the wobbly mags and all. If you want to get rid of that one, now that it's used, I'll take it off your hands for $1200 ;)

    Bidding starts at $1800!

    :)

    Itís a fun little gun for sure. Itís pretty awkward to shoot without a brace or stock. I was hoping that my brace would have arrived by now but it should be here soon.

    They're only junk if said wobbling causes it to get stuck / hung up and cause functional issues imo

    Take your wife or GF to the range more. If you want her to get the bug, you've got to expose her to the disease.

    we've got three full auto MP5's in our armory that no one is issued. Two of which were converted to fire simunition rounds. they all have about a 1/4 inch of mag wobble but all run flawlessly.

    Congrats!
    I'm sure you will enjoy the RS I have the RS and the K both fun to shoot but my RS is my baby, eats everything I feed it, very accurate as well,
    mine is SBR'd and i have both A2 and the A3 stocks,
    I am a much better shot with the A2 as it just fits/feels better for me.......Enjoy!
