    Ya that’s a quick turn around. Not that it couldn’t happen.
    But this seems too good to be true. Everything is just too perfect.

    1. Full size civi MP5 - seems too good to be true
    2. Available in 1 1/2 months after the initial leak? - way too good to be true
    3. Factory paddle mag and navy barrel - WAY WAY WAY too good to be true

    Now any other gun company I wouldn’t be too skeptical.
    But being an H&K fan is like being an abused spouse. I keep hoping they will be better and I keep getting let down. But I keep coming back for more :)

    I’m excited for this release. I wonder how the companies like Dakota Tactical, TPM Outfitters, Brethern Arms, etc are going to be impacted. I hope that in the big picture it doesn’t cannabalize their business in a negative way.

    Bet it'll drive those prices and demand down in a hurry. "Cheap" clones will be fine...the poor's gotta get their rollerlock on too.


    I want this to be true (SP5 is my #2 on the wish list: https://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk-handg...ml#post3569724), but I have strong doubts.

    Those pics of the various SP5's are highly suspect...

    Why are they all of a sudden doing threaded, lugged barrels with paddle mag releases? Even the 94 clone?
    Why are they all of a sudden going whole hog and doing all those variants?
    Why are they all of a sudden going to do long-barrel "pistol" imports?
    Why are they all of a sudden doing suppressed commercial guns?

    This isn't very HK at all...a leopard don't change it's spots.

    That suppressed variant was approved by the Federal Police years ago (I think 2013) at the same time as the original SP5K. I doubt H&K is planning on selling it.

    The quality builders like Dakota will be impacted, but they will just need to adapt to continue to be successful. They won't likely be able to compete, price-wise, with HK on a 9mm MP5. But they can do .40/10mm builds, or 5.56 pistols, etc. There is lots of roller-locked goodness that we have no HK-provided solutions for, and quality clone makers will continue to have a market.

    That said, there is a personal reality that plays into this. I was going to pick up a full-size MP5 build from Dakota sometime in early-to-mid 2020. That was on my short-list of acquisitions, but I'll be waiting to see what develops with the HK-branded offering now.
    Own: HK91, SR9, PSG1 clone, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, 2x P8, 2x P8A1, USP9, USP9 FDE
    Future: SP5 inbound

    Some will close, others will have to shift from building to retailing and gunsmith work. That market has already been squeezed by the higher quality low priced clones that are available as well as the SP5K. If you look at what Dakota has done in the past couple years it’s clear they are responding to a more competitive “High end clone” market. Selling B&T guns, doing more gunsmith work, and coming out with the “Core Classic” line of lower priced H&K clones. The market has changed since they started, back then it was a Bailey gun or a pre-ban H&K.

    BTW, I think Brethern is already out of business.

    Even if they do produce it, they won't produce it regularly. Availability will be sporadic, and they'll still be expensive, so clone builders will survive (especially if HK doesn't make enough).
