The wait is finally over. Following the latest trends in compact firearms, Heckler & Koch recently unveiled a shorty version of the civilian MP5k, the SP5K PDW. Your partner may say otherwise, but size does matter. If you're like me, we all know that shorter is better.
It doesn't get much more aesthetic than an SP5K, and now you can own one straight from H&K. Mechanically, this is the same as earlier versions. The gun features the iconic tri-lug muzzle device, paddle magazine release, and fluted chamber. Sporting a 4.5 inch barrel, this is classified as a pistol. This means braces and sturdy slings are in order unless you want to make it an NFA item. Same goes for those wanting the uber aesthetic vertical grip instead of the smooth fore end.

Heckler & Koch SP5K PDW Press Release
Who wants a copy when you can own the real thing?
The SP5K-PDW is semi-automatic civilian sporting version of the ultimate close quarters weapon – The HK MP5K. The “K” designation is from the German word for short – kurtz; thus the K model’s shorter barrel and receiver.
But no matter the size, all SP5 and MP5 models share the same HK roller-delayed blowback operating system, which is legendary for its accuracy, reliability, and smooth shooting dynamic. Originally perfected on the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle, this system has been used on many HK firearms still deployed around the world.
The SP5K-PDW was designed and manufactured to meet the definition of a civilian pistol. It is loaded with authentic features, like a 4.5” barrel with Navy-style threaded tri-lug adaptor, paddle magazine release, and fluted chamber.
The SP5K-PDW is manufactured in Heckler & Koch’s factory in Oberndorf, Germany. It retains many of the critical elements of the MP5 and MP5K, including its 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.
