For me, having fired such a beautiful weapon both on exercise and for 'real', it has to be the K&K MP5SD3 or the H&K MP10.
Even at 100 metres, on full auto, when that lovely little 3 round burst facility is used, even when the trigger is kept depressed. Result? Not more
than a 3-4 inch group per mag! Outstanding!
Not much was known about this weapon until the SAS stormed the Iranian Embassy in 1980 and now, every man and his dog has got one or wants one. Good
guys, bad guys, film makers and terrorists alike. All use these wonderful weapons incorrectly.
The H&K MP5 family are close quarter weapons best used for seige busting and the H&K MP5K is great for close protection BG work.
Either way, it is small, silent and deadly. As somebody said B4, only hammer is heard when firing and you have to strain to hear that!
The MP10 on the other hand, is just a 10 milly version of the MP5 and a S&W version at that, but it is so much noiser. Until they worked it out,
firing the MP10 was very much like firing the old Sterling SMG.
Whatever happened to the MP10?
