Heckler & Koch is introducing the new 9mm SP5K pistol at the 2016 NRA Annual Meeting and Exposition May 19-22 in Louisville, Kentucky.

“The SP5K is a unique and historic HK pistol that captures the essence of the legendary MP5K but as a semi-auto handgun,” said Michael Holley, HK-USA Vice President for Commercial Sales and Marketing.

“It’s equipped with a special ergonomic handguard that protects the shooter’s supporting hand and enables a stable and comfortable grip. A bungee cord sling is also included and makes shooting an SP5K easy. It’s a fun gun to shoot and goes a long way in recreating the experience of handling and firing a real MP5 subgun.”

The SP5K has same cold-hammer forged barrel used on the MP5K, ensuring a service life of tens of thousands of rounds, H&K officials maintain. The SP5K is manufactured completely in Heckler & Koch’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany.

A Picatinny rail has been added to the upper receiver to allow optional sights to be easily mounted. The SP5K also comes “ready-for-action”in a custom-fitted, lockable, high-quality carrying case, according to H&K officials.

The SP5K is slated to be available in July 2016 at a retail price of $2,699.
