Picked up another Turkish gun this week. For those that don't know, it's the AP5 made by MKE. MKE actually used to be licensed manufacturer for H&K and uses H&K tooling to make these "clones". So, essentially they are Mp5's with different roll marks. The prices on these were super inflated but finally came down once Century Arms (the importer) finally listed a decent MSRP.

Only had time to run two mags through it on my lunch break today. It's silly smooth. Like shooting a .22LR or at least close to it. I have a "cheap" PSA AR-9 and a CZ Scorpion that are both direct blowback and that requires a heavy bolt to absorb the recoil which cause a bit of recoil and general motion in the gun.

My favorite PCC before this was my AR that uses CMMG's Radial Delayed Bolt and barrel. It also uses standard p-mags with inserts that feed 9mm. Great setup for anyone that's familiar with AR's.

Still, the MP5 is just iconic and a blast. With the H&K SP5 prices skyrocketing, this is a pretty cheap way to get something that is essentially the exact same thing.

Here soon before it gets too cold I plan to take all 4 out for a side by side comparison to really see how big the differences are between them.

The CMMG 9mm:

Yeah, you'd think they'd sell a ton. I looked into a conversion briefly but I think you'd be around $8-10K after the gun, conversion and suppressor. A little steep just to be able to shoot 115gr subsonic. Definitely cool though.

Yeah anything with H&K ends up costing an arm and leg even converting their own guns into the way they're suppose to be(sl8,usc). I would think from the factory though they could build SD's for around 3k or less however not being built in the U.S. probably some NFA issues with importing SBR's and suppressors.

Yeah I suppose I'd trust Century enough to install the stock on imported pistol but I would not trust them with the integrally suppressed barrel and its installation. Honestly I'd probably even buy the SD with faux suppressor if imported like that, would just need to find a place selling new intergal barrels and already have all the other hardware.

Here's one place I looked at. Plenty of parts and they sell the suppressors too relatively cheap considering the niche for these suppressors. So if I'm reading it right, you are in for a little over $3K on top of the cost of the host gun. Something I'd consider if I ever found an actual H&K for a decent price. I just don't see the point of converting a clone. Probably SBR it at that point and get an A3 collapsing stock too. Plus a new lower and all the goodies.
