HECKLER & KOCH USA Sporting Pistol HK M750900A5 SP5K Sporting Pistol Semi-Automatic 9mm 4.5" 30+1 Black HK's SP5K is a semi-automatic, civilian sporting pistol that matches the look and feel of the famous MP5K submachine gun. Its design meets the definition of a civilian pistol and marks the return of the roller delayed blowback system. The operating system is legendary in its accuracy and reliability. For more comfortable shooting, the SP5K is equipped with an elastic bungee sling. The sling is easily installed by snapping it onto the sling swivel hardware located on the rear of the receiver. The SP5K comes with two 30-round magazines.

HK SP5K Features

The Heckler & Koch SP5K is a semi-automatic, NFA compliant version of the MP5K and is chambered in 9x19mm.  It uses the same magazines with a standard capacity of 30 rounds, and is built with almost all identical parts to the original MP5.  Its forend lacks the vertical grip found on the original, however it does include an ambidextrous safety.  It also lacks a paddle-style magazine release and opts for only the push-button release, though it does come standard with an optics rail.

HK SP5K Capacity

The Heckler & Koch SP5K feeds from double-stack, double-feed detachable box magazines with capacities of 10, 20, and 30 rounds.  To load the SP5K, pull back the charging handle and rotate it up into the notch in the groove, insert the magazine into the magazine well, and smack the charging handle down.
The H&K SP5K is incredibly easy to carry through any terrain.  With a weight of 4.2 pounds unloaded and a length just over 14 inches, this gun makes navigating close-quarter environments an absolute breeze.

HK SP5K Ergonomics

The SP5K handles and operates identically to the MP5 with its semi-automatic roller-delayed action.  Its lack of a front grip leads many users to place their support hand around the magazine well.  Its charging handle is just like the original in its ability to lock the bolt to the rear and it retains the “slap me, I’ve been naughty” characteristics everyone loves about the charging handle.

HK SP5K Fit & Finish

The SP5K is built on a stamped sheet metal receiver and has many components welded together.  These welds are known to stick out like a sore thumb, but they are all incredibly strong.  Its trigger housing is made of a polymer material and is very resistant to scratching and cracking.
Fit and Finish

HK SP5K Concealability

The SP5K measures 14 inches long with a height of about 9 inches and would be nearly impossible to conceal inside the belt, however a proper jacket tailored by the US Secret Service could improve concealability.
