I just got my second pistol back from Zenith. I hand cycled some Gold Dots through it and it seems good to go. It appears like all they need to do is some minor alteration with the magwell angle and it makes the thing feed much better.You are having the exact issue I am having. So what ammo can we use on this thing? I haven't had any issues with FMJ at all.
MP5s have always had issues feed JHP ammo, that is nothing new.
Welcome to the site. With my MKE RS I started out with a few hundred rounds of 124 S&B and she ran beautifully. I then went to 115 without a hiccup. I was using German HK mags and have not yet tried the MKE mags but will soon once the snow melts here. I suggest trying different mags, different ammo and also, make certain you are not relaxing your grip as a limp wrist situation could cause a FTE on new arms.I am having similar FTE problems with my new Z5-P. This seems to be more than am "isolated" incident. I was using ZQI 125 grain ammo.
Aren't we polite today? Why don't you keep your negative feelings to yourself and not post. I didn't start a new thread because this thread had several occurrences of a similar problem. Using customer service and having to return a weapon is no excuse for poor quality control. Others should be made aware that they might have to return their weapon for it to work correctly.Yo, instead of bitching on the forums, why don't you engage Zenith about the problems you are having. Their customer service is top notch and I'm sure they will remedy the problem.
I have to agree with chip though he may not have been absolutley politically correct, the proper order would be to contact the importer first and give them a chance to make things right. Then if if they haven't done the right thing, tear them up all you want on the boards. I admit I have jumped the gun and flamed companies without giving them a chance but it ain't right. In this case Zenith has taken care of every single issue I have heard about until the buyer was happy without fail. I had a cosmetic issue with my first one and one week later I had a replacement that was just incredible. In a way I'm glad I had to send the first one back because the replacement was sooooo nice. Perfect in every way and awesome looking welds. I am a welder myself and I even think they look perfect. Anyhow, give them a chance and you won't be disappointed.Aren't we polite today?

No they will ship it directly to your door.Noob question: Does the firearm still have to be shipped to your FFL after warranty work since you've already taken delivery and filled out the 4473?
I've had mine for almost a month but have yet to shoot it. I really hope mine doesn't malfunction to the extent of the OP's.
I purchased a Z5-RS from Atlantic Firearms during the recent sale and took it to the range today. My goal was to run a few magazines through to confirm reliability prior to submitting a Form 1. Unfortunately, I also encountered the same problem with an empty shell casing falling into the trigger pack and disabling the firearm. As I was not able to disassemble the weapon on the range, it put an early end to my range session. Looks like I'll also be contacting Zenith and Atlantic in the morning...I am having similar problems that others(including the OP) in this thread have had that include empty casings falling into the trigger module/lower and causing jamming that requires one to disassemble the equipment to remove the shell casing. Multiple magazines,USA made(from HK Parts), MKE/Zenith and HK (both new and used), were used with similar occurrences. It seem that the majority of the earlier posters that had similar problems had to send their equipment back to have the magwell alignment corrected and/or other parts replaced.
