    Default TPM P5SD: MP5SD Review and footage

    My ATF Form 4 for the TPM SD suppressor was approved within 41 days (unheard of speed), but my local ranges were subject to my state's stay-at-home orders. Here is some GoPro footage from yesterday's trip. This is my TPM P5SD SBR (2 stamps)



    I had one failure to feed on the second shot: the bolt carrier just didn't strip a cartridge out of the POF magazine. After reseating the magazine, no issues for the rest of the shooting.

    How it handled: I was expecting something closer to a suppressed MP5 with a full sized can. This TPM P5SD is significantly quieter (from my experience). I swear that the bolt carrier cycling was louder than the actual gunshot. The felt recoil was closer to firing a .22LR rifle. If my glasses weren't fogging up due to the face mask requirement, I'd mag dump... it's that good.

    Things to note: A lot of smoke is trapped inside the suppressor and barrel. You can see it venting any time I applied pressure on the trigger or locked the bolt to the rear. Constant shooting made the suppressor too hot to store away after my range time ended. I ended up leaving with 5 inches of can sticking out of the soft carry case.

    Specs:
    • TPM P5SD (short barreled rifle, 23 day approval)
    • TPM MP5SD 12 inch SD Suppressor (41 day approval)
    • KCI and POF magazines
    • 120 rounds Winchester 124 grain 9mm NATO plus or minus 2

    I love my MP5SD, it's by far the quietest 9mm I have ever shot. I also think the sound of the bolt/carrier is about all I can hear shooting the SD. Enjoyed seeing your vids, I subbed to your channel!

    Hope to run into you at Elite sometime.

    Did you send TPM a parts kit, or order straight from them?

    Sorry for the late response. I contacted TPM Outfitters via E-mail and arranged to purchase an MP5SD clone in pistol configuration, with NFA engraving information in advance. The suppressor was already built so it was Form 3/approved and shipped first, the engraved pistol after 2 weeks.

    TPM does great work! I had them convert an SP5 to an MP5SD, and it was back to me in two weeks looking like it came straight from the factory.
