Heckler & Koch brings some fun to the MP5/SP5 lineup with the addition of .22LR rimfire carbines and pistols.

What could be cooler than two new MP5 .22 LRs in pistol and carbine configurations? Heckler & Koch is pleased to announce the launch of the coolest rimfires on the market. HK has partnered with Umarex of Germany to bring you the only HK-authorized rimfire versions of the legendary MP5.

These new guns have the look and feel of theMP5 submachine gun, which is easily the most famous of all HK gun designs. The carbine variant has a sleeved barrel that gives it the look of the legendary MP5SD, while the pistol variant is more like an MP5/SP5 with butt cap.

“If you like theSP5,you’re gonna love the MP5 22. It can be a trainer, a suppressor host, or just the coolest .22 LR fun gun on the range. And let’s not forget the fact that, as a semi-auto22, it’s an MP5 that most of us can actually afford to own and shoot,” said Bill Dermody, HKUSA’s Director of Marketing.
