    Not sure if this belongs here, but I thought that some may be interested in some pictures of a roller lock MP5 clone. This is made by PTR Industries, in the little town of Aynor, SC. I was checking the fit of several new magazines, since this has become the new truck gun. It is set up as a pistol, officially, with the SB folding brace, and I have 5 standard 30 round magazines for it. Simply put, I really like everything about this weapon, and with the Trijicon red dot sight, is super compact, accurate, and reliable.
    Anyway, here are a few pics: 081FAFB0-7557-4B56-9513-1B771597D1CB.jpeg D1D52C8E-1C82-47E5-8DB5-3E3537C2646B.jpeg 15D22E46-D854-4DFB-99D1-D1D331CE97D3.jpeg A40AE66C-25E1-422B-8426-4AC48F52A2E6.jpeg

    Great truck gun choice.

    I got to try the HK Sp5 at the range recently, I am amazed how smooth shooting those are.

    Edit: I know yours is a PTR, it still operates the same and I would buy that over the overpriced HK.

    I always wanted a real Mp5. I was excited when I heard they were going to make a civilian version. However, the price is uncalled for. There are so many better options for a compact shooting platform.

    I would go the clone route too. You still get that cool factor but don’t break the bank.

    Throw a can on it and it becomes even more fun.

    I don't know anything about these type of firearms, nothing, but I always wanted one for self & home defense.

    I hope I didn't screw up but just today I bought a Brugger & Thomet ACP9 PRO with swing out stock/brace, steel Magpul sights, and 5 - 30 round magazines. I've never shot or even handled one of these type of firearms. I hope the B&T that I bought is a good one.

    Worked with the LASD SEB team when they got 30K worth of H&K equipment in the early 80s. I got to run the course several times to let the guys figure out what they were doing wrong (resting the things on the magazine in prone). Used the heck out of their MP5s, great shooting sub gun.

    Truck gun during my class III days was either a ParaFal or an M3.

    @Caeserslegion have you noticed it being picky on ammo? Mines a blast to shoot but is very picky. Can't cycle blazer, federal or Winchester in 115 or 124 to save it's life. However s&b runs like a sewing machine in any weight.

    My MKE runs just like my HK’s. I’ve been pretty happy with it. It’s the K... 1367AE13-46B8-4F4D-93B3-6D9E0B064973.jpeg

    I have the K model PTR clone. Flawless with about 1,000 rounds of steel cased Wolf ammo. I did meticulously follow the prescribed break-in procedures from PTR with about 300 rounds of brass Federal (when Wal-Mart still sold ammo!). I'm a big fan of the gun - I put a folding brace on it and keep it in a Vertx backpack with an armor plate in it. I did replace the open rear drum sight with a factory correct rear drum from HK parts. Other than that, bone stock.

    Still trying to figure out what I want to do about an optic but I've shot 2 pistol caliber carbine classes with it using the iron sights and haven't had a hiccup.
