CIVILIAN LEGAL MP5?? – TGC News!

December 9, 2019


This week on TGC News, the quiet scorpion and the classic HK that is FINALLY coming to the US! Welcome back to another episode of TGC News,
the only gun news show that covers things you actually care about, my name is Jon Patton.
I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and that you didn’t completely rage if you went
out shopping on black friday. Its Cyber Monday now and Taco Tuesday is tomorrow and Wu Tang
Wednesdays is fast approaching so let’s get into the news.
First up this week is something that has been a LONG time coming. Its from a small german
company called Heckler and Koch and after many years of trying, we are getting the closest
thing to an MP5 that the US has ever seen. It’s called the SP5. If that sounds familiar,
you may recall the SP5K which is a sort of Americanized version that was okay to import.
The SP5k has a button mag release which no one likes, it has a tiny little barrel with
a shroud which is only cool if there is a can under it and a couple other things that
aren’t what a true HK fanboy would want. And here comes the SP5. I’ll go over the basics
first. It’s a 9mm semi auto pistol that uses a delayed roller lock blowback operating system
complete with the locking handle almost made for slapping,much like the real deal MP5.
It comes with a 8.86 inch barrel, 30 round mag if you live in a free state, ambi safety,
rounded classic style handguard, a muzzle device that is both threaded ½ x 28 AND has
a 3 lug attachment, a rear sling mount AKA the spot where the brace gets attached, fixed
front sight and rotary rear, again much like the real MP5, and it weighs in at just over
5 pounds. It also has my favorite feature from any of the MP5 variants, the paddle mag
release. FINALLY. It’s also made in germany on the MP5 tooling. To me, this is the definition
of an enthusiast gun. You’re not likely to carry it but you are likely to shoot the piss
out of it and love it the entire time. The MP5 is legendary and this seems to be the
closest we’ve gotten yet to a civilian legal version. The price tag is inherently HK style
at 2799 dollars MSRP. And the mags are pretty steep as well at 80 bucks
a pop MSRP. At the end of the day though, I’m excited for 2 reasons. One, seeing the
German government allow this to come over here to the states to be sold is a really
positive thing. And 2, I have one for review and I am REALLY curious if it holds up to
my excitement levels. What do you guys think? Is this something you would ever consider
buying or is it still unobtanium for you? Sound off in the comments and let’s talk about
it. Next up this week is a unique NFA item that
comes from the efforts of 2 companies. The company that designed this silencer set up
is called Manticore Arms. They’re friends of TGC and have done some really interesting
parts and accessories over the years. The other company, I first learned about from
their chain drive knives, they’re called RatWorx USA and they are manufacturing and selling
the can. What makes it unique is that it is specifically designed for the CZ Scorpion
EVO pistol or SBR with the 7.75 inch barrel and it essentially is an integral can that
you can add on without modifying the barrel or muzzle in any crazy way. Essentially what
you have is a 2 part system. A new forened for the gun that also acts as the outer sleeve
AND the inner baffle stack or core as they call it, which is the serialized part. In
theory, because the 2 parts are not permanently attached to each other or the gun, you could
transport the gun without the can. The core comes out by removing 8 screws. Pretty simple.
The other thing that makes this stand out is that because you have a larger shape to
deal with than a normal 9mm can, they’re claiming 2.7 times more volume in fact, that means
that you will in theory get better suppression and sound numbers. They also claim that the
larger area also spreads out heat and the unit can be held even after shooting 100 rounds
through the gun. And now here’s the part that matters the most, the entire can and forend,silencer,
muzzle device assembly retails for $449 bucks. That is really solid value for money IF you
happen to have one of those guns. I feel like some guys are now going to buy one just to
have a can like this haha. And I need to mention this because recalls
can be a big deal sometimes. This one more than others. IF you are a re-loader, pay attention.
Accurate Powders put out a recall on 3 of their powders. 2495, 4064 and 4350. All of
which are pretty popular for rifle loaders. According to their recall notice, The storage
of these powders can or may result in combustion, fire damage and/or possible serious injury
or property damage. That is not good. We will put a link in the description so you can make
sure your powder is good to go. Our Guntuber of the Week this time is from
the UK. They bring a flavor to the gun world that we just don’t get here in the states.
They’re focused mainly on the things that are legal there, of course, BUT I think the
presentation is done REALLY well and the footage is outstanding. And I genuinely have interest
in the type of stuff that they are showing. Say hello to The Gun Shop. Do me a favor and head over there and get
subscribed. There is a link in the description for you guys to head over and get subscribed
to his channel and when you do, be sure to tell him TGC sent
you. And now, as you guys requested, Patton’s Armory.
This is a segment where I grab one of my personal guns and tell you guys about it. This is a
Smith & Wesson Model 61. This is a 22 long rifle gun, semi-auto pistol. And some of you
guys may be familiar with the larger ones I think it’s the 4412 or I don’t remember
the model numbers, but, the idea here is that the barrel is on the bottom, the top is the
reciprocating part the slide it’s pretty cool pretty unique and this is a very very old
gun. I bought this specifically to be used with very very tiny cans like the GSL pill
bottle and the Bowers bitty. The only challenges right now I have the inability to remove the
barrel lug, the locking lug on the end here. I tried, I got a tool really struggling, I
really got to send it to a gunsmith. So this has kind of been in a holding pattern, it’s
a really neat little gun. Tiny little magazine tiny little gun. I’ll even put it in my hand
so you guys can see what that looks like if it’s silly I mean my finger almost goes past
the muzzle. That is a tiny little gun. But with a can on there, man this thing is going
to be cool. Model 61. That is one of the more interesting guns that I have. Kind of in a
holding pattern, we will make a video with it at some other time. Of course, If you guys
wanna to see more of my guns, let me know in the comments. I hope you enjoyed this one. This time our questions are coming from our facebook page. If you enjoy our show go check that out. That’s difficult to say to be
honest. I got into guns around 10 years ago. I started making videos on YouTube, about
guns, about 10 years ago. My entire time being a gun guy, i’ve also been a content creator.
Obviously TGC has allowed to me to obtain all kinds of cool stuff, I guess to answer
your question, I would likely have less but I don’t think I’ve ever been the type of person
to be a minimalist. I’ll try to make an analogy
that covers this. Imagine a stray dog that has been fighting other dogs its entire life.
Its tired. Its aggressive. It’s always ready for a fight. Now imagine cornering that dog
with other dogs. It will probably react to any little thing they do. This is the gun
community. We have been pushed into a corner and everyone is tired and fed up so we overreact
on one another as a result. Yes it is a symptom of that. It’s WAY easier to talk crap on a smartphone than it is to actually do something. Like physically go to a place or perform some action that requires more than a light snort when you see a funny meme. We are in the age of the internet, and we
are trying to fight problems that are bigger than the internet. Well you can easily go work in a gun shop behind the counter. That’s a great
place to start. If you have some specialized skills you could try to get into a gun company
looking for people with that skill set. The gun industry isn’t different than any other
industry. College education isn’t required and anyone that says so is full of it. and if you want to ask a friendly fire question, send it to me over on theguncollective.com! That is it for this week’s show. Guys if you

    I aspire to be a gunsmith. I have some skills in the industry, a little experience, and a motivated attitude.
    I spent 2 years sending resumes and nocking down doors trying to get a job, even starting at the bottom.
    I had a few interviews, but in the end I thing the area around me is too saturated with skilled gun guys.
    I have now resolved to go to a higher learning organization, and work on making my skills more desirable.
    It may not be absolutely necessary to attend college, but it sure helps, if you can manage it without debt.

    I'm not sure the dog analogy is correct as to why gun people argue a lot with each other over politics. I honestly believe it is because we aren't all on the same page as to what we believe our gun rights should be. For example, I'm a straight up 2A supporter and believe any infringement should not be tolerated and I have a friend who is into guns just as much as I am but for some reason he doesn't believe machine guns should be legal and thinks background checks are a great thing. I would say the majority of gun owners I talk to have some difference in idea of what they believe our gun rights should be and I think that is one of the largest problems among us in terms of making positive changes in the political arena.

Even if you say the mp5 craps on those, I have to fire back and ask if it’s enough to justify $2800? I think only the hardcore enthusiasts will go for this.

    Why not sanctuary cities that ignore the 2nd entirely? That allows slavery? If you can ignore federal law [immigration] and now state laws, where would it end?

    Then, what about individual neighborhoods or gated communities? Individual houses? How granular does the option to ignore the laws become? Could each house have its own list of federal and state laws it doesn't allow enforced?

    Your description of the SP5k is a little unfair; it makes a good addition to any MP5 collection. The missing paddle mag release was silly but easily added. But the SP5k is essentially an SP89 with minor mods. The 89 is pretty close to the MP5k.

    And the 4ish inch barrel is extremely accurate and is more than long enough for the effective range of the 9mm round.

  • Reply Cult of Crasus SWTOR December 6, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    Sanctuary counties are BS and a waste of time, just a reason for local Fudds to get together and feel they are doing something. Say Virginia passes a law that restricts capacity to 10 rounds, and Appomattox County is a Sanctuary County. Say someone is caught with marijuana, and they also have a gun with 15 rounds, the moment the suspect is charged with too many rounds makes the whole movement hypocritical, weak, and without merit…..and it will happen. In Virginia there was a special session called for after a mass shooting, and the Republicans tabled all discussions, refused to move forward with any conversation or debate, and let down all their constituents and were applauded for it by said Fudds. When you had a forum that really mattered your reps were silent on your behalf, now you want to cry with sanctuary bs….weak.

    If the LEO community in the 2A counties actually honor that resolution, it will make a difference. Otherwise, it's just elected officials pandering to their constituency.

    don't need to be in a "sanctuary city" for the constitution to be the prevailing law of the land lmao … you can walk into a police headquarters in Los Angeles open carrying a rocket launcher and be WELL within your constitutional rights. No, i'm not making that up and trying to be provocative. that is literally the law here in the United States.

    Too pricey for a 9mm pistol, I had 2 SIG MPX sub guns then I came to my senses and traded them off for more guns and I'm much happier. If you have plenty of money to spend and don't care about an expensive shooter then have fun, but if you have one and baby it whats the point? HK should have competed with their competition in price but as usual company pride boasts about the Logo(Ego) of quality and price themselves nearly out of the market…….

    As for the gun industry, I worked in it for 10 years and did a lot of cool things, but be careful I found that it wasn't a good career move because there wasn't any benefits there. However I did manage to land a Security Contractor / instructor job because of the 10 years of firearms experience which was everything from suppressed 22 cal pistols to 25mm chain guns for the military. Yes it can still have a career option in the end somewhere else. Now I will say a very few Firearm manufacturers do care for their employees and spend money on them to further benefit company and employee. SIG Sauer careers for example, if you become a firearms instructor they will send you to places to learn more and make you a better instructor for their Academy and hope you like to travel. I've been to Ruger, Beretta, Knight's Armament, Century Arms, and a few others but no joy their guys, It's all fun to a point but you better have another source of income. Work along side many others from Remington, Barrett, Colt, HK, Taurus, Smith & Wesson and they have same stories as everyone else, fun at times but you can't live on low wages and support the gun habit too. Gun shops are a little different and vary because of the individual owner but lets face it the one who makes the money is the Business owner/FFL holder.

    For $2700 I would much rather get a Cobalt Kinetics AR or save up a little more and get a Laugo Arms Alien 9mm.
