MP5 good begginer upgrade compatable gun?
Ok guys, I am not new to guns at all, but I have never owned one. I am looking at an MP5 for target shooting and a good learning platform in order to do customizations and upgrades to guns. Is this a good choice? Or am I way off? Thanks in advance for any replies. By the way, I did search this before posting

Do you mean the MP5 .22lr? If it is .22lr, you might want to check out the S&W M&P 15-22. Accessories like the real AR15 can be put on there.

That's what I ment. And I saw that mentioned in other posts. How much is that gun typically?

Non MOE is about $400 if you are lucky to find a deal. Then about $500 with Magpul sights, stock and grip.

That's exactly the price range I was hoping for. I will definitely look into this. Is this a good gun for buying parts to do upgrades with? I mean a good platform to do upgrades to and are parts easy to come by?

Sorry i can't find any MOE deals and seems no one has it.

I never heard anyone replaced the stock parts due to broken or sort ever. It's a very well made and durable gun. Accessories for it are easy to find too.

Here's mine,

Pretty good reason lol. You do target shooting?

Is it only in 22LR? Or can that be changed? Or would I have to buy a different gun altogether?
