The HK MP5 Rimfire 22.
 Comment(s)

The MP5 from HK is a legendary firearm with roots dating back to 1964. Since its inception the MP5 has seen use by military, law enforcement and security applications the world over. However, the sub machine gun was not readily a civilian firearm until the announcement of the SP5 in 2020. But now, the HK MP5 Rimfire 22 not only puts the MP5 into civilian hands, but it’s affordable to shoot.

Available in both pistol and rifle versions, the MP5 Rimfire 22 includes many of the same great features of the original. The barrel of the pistol version includes the same threaded tri-lug suppressor adaptor of the original MP5/SP5 with buttcap. Whereas, the rifle version features a sleeved barrel, giving it the look of the legendary MP5SD.

Both models include the roller-delayed blowback operating system, known for accuracy, reliability and smooth shooting dynamic. Additionally, the paddle magazine release allows for quick removal of the 10 or 25 round magazines, right- or left-handed. Also, the ambidextrous safety ensures right- or left-handed operation.

The partnership between HK and Umarex of Germany offers the only HK-authorized rimfire versions of the legendary MP5 platform. But even better for the end user is the price. I’m not just talking about the cheaper ammunition either. The MP5 Rimfire is a fraction of the cost of the SP5, at a meager $479.00.

“If you like the SP5, you’re gonna love the MP5 22. It can be a trainer, a suppressor host, or just the coolest .22 LR fun gun on the range. And let’s not forget the fact that, as a semi-auto 22, it’s an MP5 that most of us can actually afford to own and shoot,” said Bill Dermody, HK USA’s Director of Marketing.

Availability

The HK MP5 Rimfire 22 will be available October 1st, 2021, in both pistol and rifle configurations, with an MSRP of $479.00. For more info, please visit HK-USA.com.
