    Default Omega or Zenith?

    So, I'm looking into something in an MP5k configuration. I thought about SBR'ing my HK94 or my SP89, but decided to leave them in their original configuration and get something new. Looks like both Zenith and Omega make nice-looking stuff. Any comments on one compared to the other?

    Of course, I'm going to recommend Zenith.

    Do you want it to look nice, or run well? I'd go with the option that provides a warranty should it ever be needed.

    I would definitely go with a PTR 9kt, especially over the Omega. Large manufacturer With all parts except magazines manufactured in house. Great finish, great shooter, and great customer service with lifetime warranty. Zeniths are great but if you want to go the SBR route, you will need to consider 922r...

    Ah-ha, so PTR makes them also.
    I want it to run well, though I'm just using it for recreational shooting. I like the retro look without a rail on top.

    Hands down, the Turkish manufactured MKE on 50 year old licensed HK tooling (if you can find one).

    Zenith, no question about it, I have an sbr’d Z5RS and its my stick. Don’t get me wrong, I have a PTR91 and love it - they’re an awesome company. But Zenith has been around too long to be overlooked.

    Think of it like this - would you prefer to go under the knife of a surgeon that’s been doing it since the 70’s, or some kid that just graduated medical school?

    Go Zenith. I have the previous iteration of Atlantic's in-house MP5 offering and am not impressed. My Zenith Z5RS has been rock solid reliable with everything I've put through it. Better looking too.
