The HK MP5 submachine gun, developed by Heckler & Koch, is a lightweight, air-cooled, selective fire delayed blowback with a roller-delayed bolt weapon, which fires from a closed bolt position. This Navy SEALs weapon uses a 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge, 15 and 30 round capacity magazines. Its sighting arrangement consists of aligning concentric circles and mechanically adjustable iron sights.
The MP5 has four different types of muzzle devices: slotted flash suppressor, blank firing attachment, adaptor for launching rifle grenades (22mm) and cup-type attachment for launching tear gas grenades.
There are notches on the receiver housing to permit attachment of quick-detachable scope mount for daytime optical sights, night sights or a halogen flashlight. It can also be used with reflex sights and laser pointers.
