MP5 is for 2019.
Also, maybe they should chill on the new platforms- AK didn't work. AR-AK thing didn't work, PA-10 didn't work, AR-9 with LRBHO didn't work... do we need to see if both HK AND FAL will work???
PSA is learning (the hard way) what CAI learned (also... the hard way).
Sub it out to someone who has already demonstrated success.
Modding mag wells on WASRs did not go well for CAI. Building FALs did not go well for CAI. When they got their hands on the HK-33 kits from Singapore and Malaysia, they subbed them all out and the builds are very good. All of the C-93 pistols went to Vector, and those are excellent.
AR-9 for PSA recently became a success when they teamed with NFA. AR-22 will likely be a success for them in 2018, because they teamed with CMMG.
PSA should not want to team with Blackthorne, Black Market Parts, Special Weapons, Bobcat, Tactical Weapons Training (Academy), Top Notch Accessories, Cohaire Arms, Cohaire Ordnance Factory, Omega Arms, Acme Parts, BCH Manufacturing or any Bailey company.
If PTR has success, PSA should consider teaming with them.
