I have received a lot of interest in the Professional Arms MK5. This is not just another MP5 clone, it is a whole new weapons system based on the MP5 which will include a whole bunch of caliber changes that can be done in less than 3 minutes. It comes in the standard 9mm. along with caliber changes for .40cal; .45cal. It will aslo be offered with a .22 caliber conversion kit.

As you can see in this regard it's not too unlike our beloved XCR. I have been following it's development for quite some time now staying in touch with it's owner Andrew.

Here's a video of Andrew and his weapons system at the 2007 Shot Show. It ios a demonstration of the caliber conversion:



Here is another video of the MK5 in action being shot by Andrew:



I am excited by the upcoming release of this weapons system and I'm sure some of you will also be happy to see a quality clone of the MP5 (with improvements).

If you want to know more about this system you can visit their web site at: http://www.professional-arms.com/

If you are going to the 2008 Shot Show please feel free to stop by the booth and speak to Andrew. Tell him Roy at Aussie Arms sent you and he will look after you.

Andrew has also committed to a display the the Spring Knob Creek, April, 2008 so if you can get there be sure to look him up. I have reserved my place there to test fire this weapons system and I will report to those interested.

Retail is $2200.00 and $1000.00 for each caliber conversion unless purchased together and then they discount you $100.00 off each caliber converstion when orderd at the same time as the gun. I think I can do a little better than retail? ;D

He was only accepting orders with a 50% deposit, but as he now has so many orders he will accept with a 10% deposit. Shipping to start in July 2008 and he claims he will fill his orders and start shipping to new orders around September 2008.

They even have a .22 caliber conversion, and yes it is expensive but what isn't these days. I should be able to shave some of that down for interested people.

I would imagine they will sell, even at that higher price. There's not much competition in the 9mm HK-variant market, and Coharie/Bobcat/etc. seems to be the only game in town for 9mm variants, and they are hit-or-miss. Anyone wanting a reworked HK94 is going to dump around $4500+ to get it clipped/pinned/SBR'ed/restamped.

I passed up a deal on 4 HK94's NIB for $1100 per unit a few years ago. I wish I had jumped on it.

Has anybody looked at the Brugger & Thommet on DSA's website? I saw one in person, although didn't get a chance to fondle it, at a gun shop in Colorado Springs.

The TP9? I considered getting one and SBR'ing it a few months back, but it would really be nothing but a range toy, so it got bumped to the end of the list. They're not exactly cheap, either.

That's about where I am. As a semi-auto it would be a very expensive toy with no pratical use. As a NFA legal full-auto it would be more intriguing but pricey and still with little practical use for a civilian unless the SHTF.

I feel the same applies for that too. No real pratical use for it, but a great toy no the less.
