I didnt think that Germany allowed them to import or sell them with a paddle magazine release or a 3 lug barrel.Hope to see these! I do not understand why HK hasn’t produced these by now given their financial issues. If the SP5K made it’s way through German and American law and the clone market has attempted to answer the demand.... What am I missing?
Which is why I'm not holding my breath.
I'm not 100% sure about this but my understanding is that with them being a German company, even if they were 100% built in Georgia they wouldn't be able to sell them.
I guess the idea is that German regulatory law would some how prevent that. I doubt it.why not? all the clone makers sell them like that (zenith, POF, PTR etc)
so why did they wait until now to do that, is the real question here.SP5 and SP5K samples with 3 lug threaded barrels, and paddle mag releases were submitted to the German Federal Police. As long as they approved them, then they’ll be able to sell them as submitted for approval.
If we want to get technical...the innards of the MP7 are more or less from 1942 and it fires a far less lethal round.Also, the MP5 isn't cutting edge gun tech anymore, unlike the MP7 that was design around an armor piercing round. It's a 50 plus year old designed. Could the German government see things differently after all this time? Who knows for sure.
Last observation, you guys (in general not directed at anyone in particular) love to complaint about HK not loving you... they are loving you now!
