    Default Which is the best MP5 Clone

    OK, so I have come into a little unexpected money and am looking for a MP5 K clone. After doing some searching here and elsewhere there really doesn't seem to be a clear winner in the MP5 clone war. What I am looking for is the most reliable out of box clone. Fit and finish are important also. Zenith seems to be quite popular and hard to get yet even they get a fair amt of criticism in the quality control dept. I do not want to spend the dough it takes for the SP5K. Thanks

    My vote goes to zenith. I sbr’d my Z5RS and it’s never malfunctioned in thousands of rounds. Mine was purchased before the shortage so no QC problems here

    Dakota Tactical.


    Period.


    Sorry, OP. I didn't read through your post far enough to see your budget limitations. DT is not for you. Or me for that matter.

    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms". I hold them up, not the other way around.

    If an SP5K is out of the OP's budget, Dakota Tactical will be also.

    Jay, you say reliability fit and finish will be important to you. In the price bracket your talking about in the clone market, Zenith is going to be where you find those things with the most regularity.

    And I was going to SUGGEST the SP5K rather than a CLONE. And drh2687 said, if he can't afford an SP5K he won't be able to afford the DT...

    Good luck. I just waited, and waited and waited but eventually scored a pair of sequentially numbered SP5K's and no, not for sale.

    The best MP5 clone is a german parts kit on an LSC flat.

    The best MP5k clone is pointless with the (albeit limited) availability of the SP5K. Keep your eyes peeled and be prepared to jump on quick.

    I like my Z5P, but you’re gonna have trouble finding one right now. Supposed to be more coming in later this year.

    I agree with AGG. I personally don't care for clones. If I can't have the real thing I don't want it.... Zenith and other's are wannabe"s...

    If I can't have the real thing I don't want it. Like wearing a fake Rolex.

    I disagree with the analogy. People buy a fake Rolex to trick people into thinking they can afford the real thing. Buying a MP5 clone isn't the same. You are not trying to pass off the clone as the original. You are looking at a value ratio. For the cost of 1 "real" thing I can have a Z-5P and a Z5-RS. When i am ringing steel all day long at 50 and 100 yards who cares what rollmark is on the gun.
