Pistol Review: HK's Upcoming SP5K PDW - The Best Civilian MP5 Ever!

Who wants to buy a knock-off when you can own the real thing?

HK has recently announced the civilian version of their famed MP5K platform, the SP5k PDW


Based on the company's adored MP5 and MP5K platform, the SP5K PDW brings a slimline design with a 5.83-inch barrel and 13.8-inch overall length. Weighing in at a mere 4.2 pounds, the SP5K sports all the traditional features that any HK fan would look for.

HK cut no corners with the SP5K outfitting it with their tried-and-tested roller-delayed blowback system, which is legendary for its accuracy, reliability, and smooth shooting dynamic. It was originally perfected on HK's G3 rifle and is still in use in countless firearms around the world.

The features don't stop there, the SP5K is loaded with authentic features, like a 4.5” barrel with Navy-style threaded tri-lug adaptor, paddle magazine release and a fluted chamber. Topping it all off, the PDW model also offers compatibility with MP5 stocks and supports 10-, 15-, and 30-round mags.

A fun fact of HK's "K" models, the “K” designation is from the German word for short – kurtz; thus the K model’s shorter barrel and receiver.

For those HK fans asking if the SP5K has true German-made quality do not fret, the SP5K PDW is manufactured in Heckler & Koch’s factory in Oberndorf, Germany. The SP5K like the MP5K is made with precision-machined components and attention to detail.

"This high level of quality and workmanship is a result of making civilian SP5 variants in the same factory, on the same lines, and by the same workforce that has been making MP5s for years." - Heckler & Koch
