    I have high hopes for the new LWRC offering, hopefully it's got the secret sauce from the MP5.

    It might be the gun the UMP should have been.

    The mpx has great potential, but it’s Sig so skip the recall and go with B&T.

    Honestly, the B&T is the only PCC that I have any actual interest in that has come out recently. Everything I thought I was gonna like such as the Scorpion Evo just didn't really do it for me. Nothing wrong with them really, but I knew I'd never actually shoot it. I think that last 9mm PCC platform I bought was the B&T TP9.

    I shoot my old school Uzi just because I have a real one and it's like breaking out the M1 garand. But mostly I shoot one of my MP5 derivatives and my TP9 from time to time. Given that the APC Pro takes the same magazines I could see actually shooting that one when I finally grab one.

    Can't remember the last time I shot my Colt 6450, it's been awhile. One day when I finally get a Gustav M45 (Swedish K) I'll probably put a lot of trigger time on that one just because I've wanted one forever.

    I'd take the MP5, it is better built and sturdier. I feel like a bolt catch on the MP5 would close the gap in terms of reload speed as many bring up that point when comparing the MP5 and MPX.

    The MPX is a 6061 extrusion and I hate extruded 6061 receivers lol.

    My factory HK MP5 has a trigger that is "to me" indistinguishable from my MKE 94P or my HK 94.

    Regarding the MPX, after shooting several examples I decided not to buy. I actually found magazine changes to be slower and I didn't care for the feel and balance of the MPX. I assume most of that is 30 years of shooting HK platforms and just being accustomed to that.

    I only shot one suppressed example of the MPX and couldn't really say one is better than the other. I suspect if you were raised on ARs you will enjoy the layout of the MPX more and if you think stock AR triggers are crap, then you really won't enjoy the HK trigger.
    My buddy has real HK guns. He is one of those guys that buys a $400 stock to make it more HK WARTIME legit. Stuff I know nothing of. The Zenith trigger, I found acceptable because itís a RDS - center mass type gun.

    I did just order an ambi safety for my Zenith, wish it came with.

    I could agree with this. I do like the HK, but that lack of bolt catch is just hard for me to get used to. This is America Damn it!

    That would be a little more expensive to feed.

    MP5 is the better gun. They've been around for many decades and their reliability is proven. While the MPX has more "modern" features(in reality its just more like a AR15,boring and not innovative), I keep seeing reports of broken trigger groups. Heard they are not the best suppressor hosts either.
