The Heckler Koch HK94 is the civilian version of the HK MP5 military series assault rifle. There are a few key differences. The trigger pact only comes in a semi-automatic version, it was only produced in the 9 mm version, and the barrel is longer to comply with USA firearm laws for the civilian market. It is currently considered a “banned” rifle thus preventing further importation in the USA. This is assault rifle is considered a collectors item. Class III NFA collectors will purchase this rifle and convert it to a fully automatic MP5 SMG by carefully following the law.

The MP5-N version is manufactured by Heckler and Koch and is presently fielded to Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance Companies and Marine Security Force Battalions.  It is currently considered the main weapon in the close quarters battle (CQB) environment.The semi-auto cousin of the famous MP5 is the the HK94 which was designed for civilian, police, and security markets.

Many owners modify the HK94 with a K-grip and barrel shroud to hide the plain barrel. The long barrel was required due to NFA laws prohibiting short barrel rifles. The size of the barrel does not affect function of this weapons but it satisfies the law.
