I started my subscription to Guns and Ammo (had a gift certificate so it was like $3 for the 1st year) and noticed that in the Dec 05 issue, they show that Hornady is going to make 4.6mm HK ammo for the MP7.

is the MP7 even going to make it here?

4.6mm?

I'm holding out for someone making a 1mm bullet at 17,000 fps.

That will go straight through a tank at 5000 meters.

I think the MP7 was competing against the P90 for a PDW platform.

I think the FN crowd would be happy to see 5.7x28 mm ammo make it mainstream here in the US. I'm not sure why there's even demand for 4.6mm HK ammo if the Mp7 isn't even sold in the market. I'd be shocked if there is a large supply of 4.6mm ammo, but no MP7, and a large supply of PS90s but no 5.7x28mm ammo

Maybe for LEO....

Have fired the MP7 at the HK factory range.. Was pretty cool.. Liked it better then the P90, and thought it would be better for a PDW anyway...

Same diameter, but the MP7's round has a conventional brass case.

Holy shit a gun that the Weaver dot sight looks good on!!!

HK has a pistol sidearm to the MP7, just like the Five seveN is to the P90. Supposedly, the pistol is going to be marketed, no word on the MP7 as it would make a ugly rifle with 16 inch barrel.

Just because Hornady is going to make it doesn't mean they will sell it to you.

FN 5.7mm (SS190) can't even be sold to individual officers.

Even if HK made a semi ONLY version (unlikely) it would be unimportable due to the Bush Ban. It is doubtful they will begin to make a semi MP7 domestically.

It was printed in an issue of Guns and Ammo, which caters to primarily hunters and fans of wood on firearms. It didn't strike me as being a LE/military magazine. Of Course it could have been a generic posting of some news.
