The HK MP7 Gas Blowback (GBB) Submachine Gun is a replica of the Heckler & Koch MP7. The HK MP7 is a relatively new addition to the HK line-up, having gone into production in 2001. It was designed as a Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) to improve upon the ability to penetrate body armor compared to standard pistol cartridge based systems such as the MP5 and USP. The MP7 is incredibly compact in size and light in weight but performs extremely well. As such, it can be used as a substitute for either a traditional pistol or a submachine gun with rifle-like effectiveness. The design characteristics of the MP7 include: a light-weight polymer body construction, retractable stock, folding front grip, and can effectively be fired either one or two handed. It is also ideal for both left and right handed shooters due to its ambidextrous fire selector, bolt catch lever, and magazine release.
It’s easy to see why the MP7 has recently been embraced by the military and law enforcement world. The MP7 has already been fielded by some of the world’s leading Special Operations units, and is now in use by organizations including: the UK’s Ministry of Defense Police, Norwegian Armed Forces, French Special Forces, Japanese Special Forces, German SWAT (SEK), and The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (aka DEVGRU aka Seal Team Six) among many others.
The HK MP7 GBB Submachine Gun’s features include: a fiber reinforced polymer body that is light and strong; metal top and side rails for mounting optics and weapon accessories such as lights and lasers; an integrated folding vertical grip for more stable shooting; easy operation by both left or right handed shooters due to the fully ambidextrous controls such as the charging handle, bolt catch lever, magazine release, and fire selector; fully licensed H&K trademarks give this gun a sleek look; integrated adjustable flip-up iron sights that, when folded down, can be used as pistol sights, or used as longer range sights when flipped upright; and a two point collapsible stock makes it easy to switch from a sub-machine gun set up to pistol oriented operation.
The HK MP7 uses a gas operated blow-back design which allows the gun to realistically simulate some of the blowback that is felt by the actual MP7. The gas blow-back construction means that you don’t have to deal with gearboxes, motors, or batteries to power the operation of the gun. Instead, the gun operates similarly to gas pistols in that the magazines are filled using gas, such as green gas, and the gun functions once the magazine is inserted into it and the bolt is charged.
The HK MP7 GBB Submachine Gun is the milsim style player’s dream come true. This gun is perfect if: you’re looking for an authentic replica of the MP7, you want a compact but high-performing CQB gun, you’re looking to transition into the incredibly fun world of gas blowback rifles or want to experience a more realistic style of play, you want to run a replicated version of one of the finest guns used by the likes of DEVGRU/Seal Team Six and other Special Operations Units, or you just plain want to be the coolest guy in the room. Either way, the HK MP7 GBB Submachine Gun provides the ultimate on-field experience.
