With the recent importation of these fine MP5 type pistols, have you seen any in Iowa?

Update:  I got one.

Nary a one, but with the show circuit shut down that's to be expected.

I think Hart Bros in Mason City had one recently, not sure if they still do.

We recently got in a PTR 603 - but its been converted already

I like PTRs.  They are little easier to SBR than a SP5.

Easier to convert to F/A as well

ours have been really reliable, and I prefer to buy US made when I can

it took about 300 rounds to break it in - and i would guess there are 1000 rounds through it now. No issues after the original break in. I would guess shooting semi there would be zero issues at all even before the break in period.

no issue with the mags - it takes our mp5 mags just fine as well

its on par with a standard mp5 cycle rate wise

eta: we will have both at ofasts at the end of the month - ill get some video from it.

Facebook vids from ofasts - a good one showing the rpm of the little mp5

It was a great show, as busy as we could handle

The bar was easily the most rented gun of the weekend

I bought the SP5 at Farro's, I put a little over 1k through it at the princeton range last week. Mostly shot subsonic through my Silencerco Hybrid but a couple hundred were supersonic. Not a single hiccup, ran great and was more accurate than I was expecting. The trash everyone left in the range didn't stand a chance .
