    Default Sp5k question

    I went to the range today and was shooting my gun. I was shooting 124 grain men ammo. When I emptied the magazine the bolt didn’t stay cocked back. I was wandering if this is normal or not?

    Normal.No BHO on last round @ SP5K or most other rollerlocks for that matter.Good choice of ammo though!

    Thank you for the feedback. Was shooting it before w 115 grain ammo. Someone on the forum recommended the men ammo and haven’t had an issue since then!

    100, 115,124, 147,158 are all viable rounds

    personally I would stick with the 124 or the 115 - and yes I concur with MEN as a manufacturer

    115 wasn’t cycling through the gun correctly. I was having failure to feed. Guys on here told me to get some 124 grain men ammo and it would run perfectly and it did

    HK 9mm guns are recommended to be used with NATO spec ammo [124gr.] You can get away with 115 but if you are starting to get FTEs go back to 124. A while back an unofficial hack was to have the handguns [VP9] slide racked over night so one could use 115 ammo without issue. Use 124gr ammo as it was designed for it.

    As others have said these are designed around 124gr NATO. My SP5K has been 100% with everything I've used. 115-158.
