    Well I got it! They have two more for only $1649! I wish I could get another haha. I am leaning towards the A2 or B&T folding stock. What does your sight picture look like with red dot mounted like that?

    I hope islandfocus2 doesn't mind me posting this, but I just felt like I'd answer your question since he just posted in my thread with his sight picture:

    No worries, I don't mind :-)

    OP, if you're wonder my set up in the photo above photo on my Z5RS, I'm using the "MFI Ultra Low Profile Mount" that I purchased from HKparts.net. Here's the link: https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/Ultr...s-91p17962.htm

    As for the optic, I'm using the "Holosun HE503GU GR Elite" that I purchased at Amazon.com when it was on sale. LINK: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078G6P1MX...v_ov_lig_dp_it

    Congrats with your new Z5RS!! Now it's time to have fun with it!!


    You mentioned the B&T folding stock? I also have that too! I actually like having different options when it comes to stocks. I like to change it up every once in awhile so I have 3 different set ups for my Z5RS.

    A2 stock.


    A3 stock.


    B&T folding stock.

    I like all of the stocks, but I am definitely a bigger fan of the B&T folder- I love it personally.

    As someone who has a POF and an HK (and ive shot many Zenith guns) why do so many people prefer Zenith over POF? In my experience they are pretty much equal, with a nod going to Zenith but it still isnt worth the price increase IMO. Both of them perform just as good as my HK gun, with both of them coming out of the box much better equipped than a SP5k which I honestly just bought because it had HK stamped on the side of it.

    Well I think the finish on it is a big one. Plus it comes with 3 mags instead of 1 mag, and the MKE mags are more expensive afaik.

    I wonder if there is a bunch of variation on fit/finish in the clone market?

    I've seen and handled a few POF and Zeniths, found their F&F to be on the lower end, compared to an SP5k.
    The PTRs that I have seen, however, seem immaculate and on par (stories of functional issues aside, as seen here).

    I dunno. I'm happy with my HK.
    Own: HK91, SR9, PSG1 clone, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, 2x P8, 2x P8A1, USP9, USP9 FDE
    Future: SP5 inbound

    What do you mean? Zenith fit and finish isn't amazing or anything, it's about on par with POF in fact.

    Anecdotally, Ive heard Zeniths to be superior to POFs as well in terms of fit and finish. This perception seems to be formed by several gun talk forums; when folks chime in on MP5 clones it seems to form a consensus that Zenith have better fit and finish than POFs. One can argue this as pure conjecture, but regardless it does seem to form an opinion that drives the broader market towards Zeniths over POFs.
