Video: H&K MP5

The 9 mm Heckler & Koch MP5 (machine pistol Model 5) is one of the most identifiable and reliable submachine guns ever produced, and is the firearm that put H&K on the map. The MP5 was the right submachine gun for law enforcement at the time of its development, and since its introduction in the mid-1960s, the technology used then has stood the test of time. Although there are now more than 200 variants of the gun, including a semi-automatic version, modern undefinedmodifications have often been as simple as the addition of a Picatinny rail. Because of its renowned ease of use, modularity, level of user safety and its proven accuracy, the MP5 remains popular today worldwide, having been adopted by dozens of international militaries, law enforcement and security agencies, as well as many U.S. Special Forces and SWAT teams.  

Learn more about the MP5 in this “I Have This Old Gun” video segment from a past episode of American Rifleman TV.
