035 THE MP5 SUBMACHINE GUN
Since the mid-1960s the Heckler & Koch MP5 has become the most widely used submachine gun in the world, especially among counter-terrorist and special-operations units. Lightweight and offering a blistering rate of fire of up to 900 rounds per minute, the MP5 quickly earned a reputation for accuracy.
Fielded early by West Germany's GSG 9 counter-terrorist unit, it was soon adopted by the SAS. Today, military and police agencies in over 80 countries from Albania to Zambia use the weapon. Featuring specially commissioned full-color photographs and expert analysis, this engaging study charts the origins, use, and impact of the MP5.
