The original Zenith imports were make by MKE in Turkey in a state-run, facility on HK tooling which was supposedly purchased in the 80’s or 90’s and “proofed” by HK semi-annually. I don’t know how much of the proofing thing is BS or if it stopped at some point. I’ve got a K-PDW model from them and it’s flawless. The new ones are made in the USA on non-HK machines. I would think that unfinished flats are imported, bent, and welded up, since that’s cheaper. I’ve seen tooling marks on the bolts, but I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one. Zenith has generally been a good company to deal with and has a reputation for taking care of customers.

Long story short, the Century AP5 and old MKE are both Turkish HKs; it’s even hard to really consider them clones. PTRs and new Zenith are US-based clones. POF…I have no idea. Good reputation for reliability, but not as refined as the others. PTRs are also pretty nice but are getting squeezed by these cheap imports.

Hope this is not a daft question but when you guys refer to POF regarding HK clones........

Are you talking about Pakistan Ordnance Factories or Patriot Ordnance Factory ?

They were licensed and provided equipment back in the 60's. They are no longer licensed by H&K and haven't been for a long time. There is a lot of confusion out there on this.

POF is similar to MKE in the fact that they were once licensed by H&K in Pakistan and made on the same equipment. Neither MKE nor POF have any current licensing agreements with H&K.

From what I've been told by friend who owns a POF they are also licensed machinery just in Pakistan instead of turkey. His POF (from like 6 years ago or something) feels fine and operates great, did NOT have mag wobble (their mag catch was properly sized). No real issues with his, I just dont like the 60's style metal lower and their paint job, otherwise They should be nearly as good as MKE (who i have a gut feeling are just a hair better). I've heard rumors online that POF can be hit or miss.. So far the MKE's i've purchased (2) and other peoples i've seen pick up in the gun store (3-4) not one has been bad or returned..  Any gun manufacture can put out less than perfect guns (even HK GASP!!!) It might just be slightly more common with POF or even MKE then it would be with HK.

I did trigger, sear, hammer, cocking handle, mag base plates and will get a US handguard once my stamp comes. Cost was a little over $120 not including the handguard. Stock will run about $160. I’ll eventually get a MAD bolt head and not worry about getting more base plates when I get more mags. You could also get the US trigger cage if they ever get back in stock.

You are referring to the POF guns...we are talking MEK, so I can only talk about my experience with the AP5.

I would have no hesitation in using mine for any type of situation.

I've run enough through it-now just at 3k since the weekend, that I know it can be trusted.

This thread has inspired me to get one for the wife, but I'm unfamiliar with the platform.

She's decent with a pistol, but I think she would be much more effective with a pdw.

Someone help me with a shopping list?

I'd like it short, optics ready, folding stock, and ultimately suppressed.

The AP5-P model is the "MP5K" model with the exposed barrel allowing mounting a can.

It comes as a pistol, so no stock and no VFG.  You'll have to SBR it to add both of those.

For folding stocks, there is the classic HK/Choate PDW folder  or the B&T one which has a UMP-esque look .  That's just a few options, there's a ton out there, braces too.  Just make sure you look at stocks for the "K" type receiver if you get that model, the mounting setup to the gun is different than the full size MP5 type receiver.

All of these are semi-optics ready.  They have mounting bosses on the top of the receiver that's H&K's old clamp mount system.  There are many options now for picatinny rails that mount to the clamp interface and open you up to any modern optics.

Thanks! Good info.

I was about to click the buy on this package: https://atlanticfirearms.com/century-ap5-p-pistol-w-sb-brace-and-sms-optic

I watched the vid concerning the optic. I'm not a gunsmith and I'm not sure I have anyone locally that I'd trust. I'm not too familiar with clamp style stuff. Can you lend a little more detail on an easy way to set up the gun?

Also - Is there a light option on the short configuration that I want? Thanks again. We are going to be homesteading on 10 acres and I want her to have something light that she's confident with and willing to tote around.

ETA: I'm in a YT rabbit hole now and finding some options.

Is the fitment going to be identical as an MP5?

Do the clamp style mounts for the MP5 scratch the receiver in any way? I assume it would since the only way would be to 'clamp' on the small top portion.

I would say consider the fullsize for the following reasons

More brace/stock choices, as well as handguards and light set ups

Adding lights and optics really crowds up a K version, the fullsize lets you have lots of room for manipulating the CH.

The fullsize is more pleasant to shoot (but not by a whole lot), and is easier to suppress (though the k is by no means difficult)

The K is shorter, but the fullsize is still able to fit in lots of bags

I'm a little torn. It will be a full time suppressor host for a can than should be out of jail within a couple months. I'd really like to keep the OAL down. The light mount I linked looks intuitive and clean.

I'm trying to find a sloped claw clamp...I was thinking an aimpoint or romeo optic. If I can sort out a retractable brace, I think I'm set. If I can't, I could go the sbr route for a folder. Thanks for your thoughts.

View Quote
You slide the mount on the gun and usually insert the little angled threaded clamp parts into place and tighten 4 screws to secure it.  The biggest thing to watch sometimes is you need to tighten all the screws somewhat evenly, or the rail might end up clocked to one side slightly, the top of the receiver is kind of rounded.  I just eyeball it make sure the rail looks level with the lined up irons and it's good to go, zeroing the optic will fix the rest.

One thing to keep in mind with optics mounted on the K models, you'll probably end up with the front of the optic uncomfortably close to the rear-most travel point of the charging handle, so just be careful there that you do make it too cramped, or worse case end up smashing your thumb into the optic or rail while racking the handle, been there done that.

For mounting lights, you're limited a bit by the small size of the foregrip and requirement to keep the charging handle area clear.  My personal preference would be the Midwest Industries MLok rail and something like a small scout light mounted on the 2:30 position.  You could still mount an MLok VFG to it and depending on how flexibly you are, either reach the tailcap with your thumb, or otherwise use a remote pad or button where comfortable.  There's a few ways to accomplish this though, keep looking around for videos and such to see what others have come up with.

If you want to go retractile instead of folding, The KES-K with tailhook brace  is one of the cleanest options.  B&T also makes one  but a bit pricier.

Or you could go the PTR route they have welded on pic rails on top (Hate that myself as i like classic look).

If you go AP5-P, you may wana just get the standard model that has 200$ rebate, you get a clip on pic rail included, as well as flash hider, and sometimes can get a pistol brace (which you're getting for like 50 bucks more instead of the 200 they cost).  Would let you have fun untill you SBR it..  You have untill august 31st to get one with the 200$ rebate. (mail in, but an actual check, not a stupid card)

Time for light, optic, clamp thingy, sling and more mags. I really should have gone to work today.

It should come with a copy of the Hk 3 point sling. It's not as good as the real thing, and the real thing isn't that great to begin with, but it is useable

I've got a Sig Romeo 5 on mine and think it's perfect.

Looks to me like the one MKE includes with the gun if you get the full package version that comes with the mount, flashider, extra mags, and cleaning kit.

For something like that mount or similar height, a micro red dot like he has there in a standard "low" mount will give you a sight picture where just the top 1/3 or so of the front sight hood is in the lower 1/3 of the optic window, so you're seeing over the irons.  Some companies make ultra low rail or direct mounts that allow you to fully cowitness with the irons, but IMO these kinda suck due to how busy the irons are on the MP5, it just looks too distracting to me.

Looks like the one that comes with the gun.

I tried a few red dots, a PRO, sparcAR, an MRO, and even a few prisms, but none really clicked. The irons work great up close.  I'd like to try an RMR or equivalent
