I'm wanting to acquire an MP-5 clone, and have narrowed my search to the offerings from Zenith and Omega. I'm at a point where I'd like to hear some comparisons/contrasts from people that either own, or have handled both. I've seen and handled plenty of Zeniths out in the world, but have never eyeballed/handled an Omega.
Zenith is MKE which is a Licensed manufacturer. All Zenith MKEs that I know of run great. Omega may help in regards to 922r if you are going to stamp it. However, MKE can be made 922r compliant as well. MKEs may also dry up due to the recent coupe in Turkey. Perhaps that gives them added value at some point.
Both pistols are great personally I like the Zenith line but the Omega offers a turn key option for those who want to SBR or a NFA Sear host. It is great to see all of the Options that we have now to feed our roller lock addiction. With other solid suppliers like Breathrean coming out with exciting offerings 2017 should be a good year !
I've held first hand several examples of both Zenith and Omega. For me the quality goes to Omega. Huge bonus is the fact since the Omega was built here in the US it is not neutered with any of the anti-FA measures found on the Zenith. With Omega you drop in a sear pack and ready to rock. On the Zenith it's arguable that once you disable the FA measures to use with a sear pack you have actually created a MG out of the receiver.
recently i purchased a omega mp5sd from atlantic. it functioned flawlessly right out of the box and the fit and finish was as good as anything i have owned hk. i did have a concern that the make and model stamping was a little deep and i saw on a forum thread where they are addressing that small thing. i have not owned a zenith but i do own a reverse stretch pof and the finish on it was terrible but everything else about the weapon was nice.
