    Does anyone have any experience with MP5 recoil? How bad is the recoil compared to an AK 47 or M4A1?

    How much does a Mp5 typically cost and are there any legality issues?

    Mp-5

    Recoil, negligable. Much less than an AK. I have been to MP-5 operators course and learned how to fire an entire 32 round magazine, full auto into a 1" circle at 7 yards. Learning Phil Singleton's (Ex-SAS) method or controlling recoil is WAY cool. M-16 and Thompson on rock and roll and keep a 5 shot burst inside a pie plate at 75 yards.

    Cost, expect to pay 7-10k for are real one. Plus $200 transfer tax plus 8% (or so) sales tax. Can get you to $11k in a hurry.

    These appear to be a good option soon, at least for just SBR MP5's with semi only...

    An SBR MP5 with a silencer would be a very neat toy.
