    Default MP5 offerings in Europe?

    Hey everyone.
    For some time now, I've been having an mp5 itch that has to be scratched.
    But it's kind of hard to get some good information what route is the best to go.
    The options I know of are:
    1. Search an old MP5 (SF if I'm very lucky)
    2. Buy an Sp5k, have B&T install a 3 lug and pretend it's a real mp5.
    3. ???

    I don't want a MKE or BT96 which makes it even harder.
    What options are there?
    Thanks

    Just get MKE guns. HK only has the pesky modified SP5k.

    MKE gets you the whole range of guns, including MP5SD and MP5K

    Not really, unless he is from the UK, in most of the bigger countries access to "the entire spectrum" should not be an issue. In regards to the civilian MP5 lineup, you will have the same availability in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland, Czech Republic and, sans Surpressor, also France and Italy.

    And if he wasn't from what you included in "most of the bigger countries" in Europe... What then? Oh yeah, I would need to ask. Oh wait, I already did that.

    No, you imply that country matters. It does not because there are no import export restrictions (unlike US where you can not have an MR223 due to US law).

    Neither are there local aquisition restrictions with some excetions, which one would assume that he as a resident of his place would know best about. And he would not ask about an MP5 if he can not own one usually.

    Generally practically every country in europe does allow ownership of up to fully automatic weapons for civilians with the right context for this privilege.

    Yeah the MKE guns seem to be fine but they aren‘t HK...

    It seems like the French have relatively easy access to genuine MP5s.

    If you are not planning to use it in full auto then I would get the HK SP5K, replace the barrel only if you're putting a supresor in the future. Is B&T regarded as a good brand there in Switzerland? Because that's what I would have gotten if I couldn't buy an HK. APC9! Would have been next. Good luck and let us know what you got.
