Picked this up as a somewhat off-handed purchase at a local gun store. Been wanting an MP5 clone for awhile, and hearing good things about the build quality of the new Walther/Umarex MP5, I kept my eyes out for one. Handling it at the store sealed the deal; this thing has a fantastic feel and heft to it for a .22. For clarification: The gun is a licensed as an official replica by Heckler & Koch, manufactured by Carl Walther of Germany, and imported into the U.S. by Umarex. All three names appear in various places on the firearm itself. Here are a few randomly snapped pics: Everything that should be metal is, with the exception of the magazine. The rear diopter drum sight is fully functional and has four different-sized apertures. The mag release is both a push-button and a paddle-type, with the button being on the right side just behind the magazine well. It also retains the bold-hold-open feature of the original, and the famous "HK slap" can indeed be performed to close the bolt. The two-position collapsible stock has a very slight side-to-side wobble and a bit more noticeable up-and-down play in it, but overall is sturdy for what it is, and has zero movement to it when the gun is shouldered. The stock construction is metal with the exception of the buttplate, and is based on the A3-style retractable stock, as opposed to the "F" style retractable stock seen on the MP5F. Field stripping the gun is quick and simple. There are two push-pins to remove, one at the rear near the stock and one just behind the magazine well. The stock and trigger group are removed, and that's it. Umarex actually made a nice video that does a lot better job than I ever could showing and explaining the whole process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLlaAKoSkjo I'll give shooting impressions once I actually get the chance to shoot it, hopefully this weekend.
