    Default New MKE 5RS first shots

    First range trip with my new MKE 5RS and my first time shooting a MP5 .Range was 10 yards from the target using Speer Lawman 115gr FMJ.It was a quick trip and only shot about 65 rounds. Needless to say i was pretty consistent with my aiming until i pushed it out to 25 yards and my groups grew some. All shots were fired slow fire and off hand at an indoor range. With my old eyes the black front site post was terrible with the black target and much better in the red zone. I'm used to my Glocks and their white front dot to help my aging eyes and i think a XS white dot may be a useful upgrade. What amazed me with shooting this MP5 was the smooth cycling and soft recoil,ive been shooting 308 for some time and this is a pleasant change.
    I used both MKE and KCI mags and had no problems with function or changing mags.

    Thanks for the review. You can paint the front site with glow in the dark paint from amazon, the best part is that it comes off if you get tired of it. Just scratch it with your fingernails.

    I believe the factory settings on the Z5RS is 20 meters approximately (22 yards). I readjusted my rear sights to 32 meters, approximately (30 yards). So far, it's been pretty accurate with 3 inch groupings at the center of the target.

    I'd also recommend a little bit of paint, ive used some nail polish my girlfriend had at the time and it works perfectly, so really no need to spend any money if you're feeling frugal and want a quick fix, and if you dont like it just a little acetone and you're good to go.

    Many years ago, I purchased some stuff called Bright Sights.....it comes in 5 colors. I tried the different colors to figure out which color MY senior eyes see best(Intl Yellow). I have used this product on all of my handguns and MP5 clones to help me find the front sight in an indoor range that is poorly lighted. Easy to put on, and to remove, but normal cleaning solutions don't affect it.

    Your manual may be different then my. 200rd break in period using FMJ 124gr Nato rounds. They want you to use hot round for break in period. I have one of the very first one. S/N #87

    Pulled straight from Zenith's website:

    "During the break-in period for your new firearm, we recommend you use NATO-spec or +P ammunition having a bullet weight of 123-124 grains. Following the break-in period, we still recommend you use NATO-spec or +P ammunition, but the grain weight is no longer as important, and 115 grain ammunition should work just as well. Having said all that, in our testing and experience we’ve also found that steel-cased ammunition cycles just fine. Of course, it is of critical importance that you ensure you are using the correct caliber of ammunition for your firearm."

    Nato 9mm 95% is 124gr and all Nato rds are +P with crimp primers.
