Is it Chrome Lined or Melonite? Or? Proof Marks of any kind? Date Codes? American or German Mfg.?
I need some clarification, if you all care to disclose and assist my education. Thanks.

No. MP5-N is 1/2x32. To make American customers happier, the thread pitch was changed to 1/2x28 on the SP5 and SP5K-PDW.
Thank you @Marine0303.
But are the dimensions the same as a Standard MP5 barrel, so it can used lets say in a preban HK94? Is it CL or Melonite and MORE IMPORTANTLY is it American Made or German Made? I understand the Navy/Commercial TPI that wasn't even a question. Thanks for any imput.

The only difference in the barrels should be the thread pitch as James already mentioned.

They are German Manufactured.

Not nitrided(ML) or chrome lined either.

It is my understanding that at the pressures and temperatures of 9mm, there isn’t a benefit to chrome or ML lining any 9mm subgun barrel. Given your experience across a huge sample of HK barrels in all calibers, would be interested in your thoughts and observations.

Based on my very amateur understanding of nitriding, I would think that it certainly isn't a detriment, and would provide some additional corrosion/erosion resistance even if it's not "necessary". Chrome lined on the other hand can affect accuracy.
