Our Assessment:  Now, when it comes to roller-delayed blowback rifles, you can’t help but think of the H&K MP5, right? Well, the SW5 is essentially an American-made clone of the MP5, with a few tweaks here and there.

Now, one of the biggest selling points of the SW5 is that it’s a civilian legal alternative to the MP5. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want an MP5? But sadly, for most of us, getting our hands on a real-deal MP5 is about as likely as finding a unicorn that farts rainbows.

So, that’s where the SW5 comes in. It’s a pretty good option if you’re in the market for a 9mm rifle that’s accurate and reliable. The SW5 comes with a 16-inch barrel with the same setup as the MP5 so you really get that authentic tactical feel when operating.  And who doesn’t love that HK slap!  If you’re a fan of the roller-delayed blowback system and want a reliable 9mm rifle that’s civilian legal, then the SW5 might just be the rifle for you.  Please see specs below and good luck!
