POTD: Heckler & Koch SP5K – P for Pug By: Eric B


No Photo Of The Day is the same. Today we have the Heckler & Koch SP5K. Did you know that the P in SP5K stands for “Pug?” It’s true, I read it on the Internet!

Developed in the 1970s, the SP5K is a semi-automatic version of the renowned MP5K 9mm SMG. It’s probably more useful than a pug for self-protection and this firearm is one of my absolute favorites and a great PDW.

From H&K (Source):

Apart from statutory changes inside the weapon the SP5K is absolutely identical to the MP5K, particularly the interfaces for magazine, buttstock/receiver cap, handguard and sight mount. In conjunction with extensive accessory options the SP5K is a state of the art weapon system. In addition to the quick release Picatinny mounting rail and the slim line handguard with HKey mounting slots available as accessories is as natural as a buttstock support option and the ambidextrous operation of the weapon. The SP5K can be universally used both as a pistol or a shoulder-mounted weapon.

A lot of my friends have pugs, and they all seem to love them. How about you?
