Built under a licensing agreement with Hechler & Koch, the Zenith Z-5RS is a semi-automatic version of the submachine gun used by the Turkish military. Manufactured by Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corp. (MKE), Zenith Firearms of Afton, Va., imports these pistols for the American market. This particular model was subject to recent Dope Bag testing, and was found to produce astonishing accuracy—sub-2” at 50 yards. Utilizing a roller-delayed-blowback operating system, the Z-5RS may be quickly employed for personal protection, and the 30-round-capacity magazines provide for a platform that is also fun to shoot. To learn more about this Turkish-built MP5 clone, check out this week's NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young. For more, visit zenithfirearms.com.
