Heckler & Koch will launch the new SP5K semi-automatic pistol (civilian sporting pistol)—which matches the look and feel of the iconic MP5K submachine gun—at the 2016 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Ky. See a video from the exhibit hall here.

Designed and manufactured as a civilian pistol, the SP5K marks the return of the roller delayed blowback operating system to an HK commercial product, a system well-known for its accuracy and reliability. Originally developed on the G3 rifle, it has been used on many of H&K’s most memorable firearms of the last 60 years.

"The SP5K is a unique and historic HK pistol that captures the essence of the legendary MP5K but as a semi-auto handgun," said Michael Holley, HK-USA vice president for commercial sales and marketing. "It's equipped with a special ergonomic handguard that protects the shooter's supporting hand and enables a stable and comfortable grip. A bungee cord sling is also included and makes shooting an SP5K easy. It's a fun gun to shoot and goes a long way in recreating the experience of handling and firing a real MP5 subgun."

The SP5K has been designed to duplicate the quality and fine details of the MP5, including its precision machined components. The same cold-hammer forged barrel used on the MP5K is found on the SP5K, ensuring a service life of tens of thousands of rounds. The SP5K is manufactured completely in Heckler & Koch's Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany. 

A Picatinny rail scope mount is attached to the upper receiver, allowing for an optional sight. The SP5K also comes with a custom-fitted, lockable, high-quality carrying case.

Projected availability is July 2016. MSRP: $2699.
