Default 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.

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?

Non MOE

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,

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