I'll take such a foreign MP5 over a US one, even if the item is a little on the ugly side fit and finish wise.
In both cases you're comparing a Class III weapon to a commercially manufactured semi automatic weapon.

I'll take the semi auto made by the factory that makes the full auto original by the millions over the semi auto reverse engineered. Their R&D is already long ago paid for. If they're cutting corners for their commercial product, that's a separate issue.

PSA said these are coming out 2019 and they are trying for $800-1000 range. Why wait? Go to Gunbroker and get the POF for $1200 or wait for Atlantic to get them in stock. I was lucky to find 2 MKEs in that price range, one new and one used.

That said, I would love if PSA or PTR made a reliable MP5. More competition in this market is good news for consumers.

I just got the email from FedArm that the POF-5 is back in stock. Now I wait for Atlantic get them. FedArm told me about three weeks ago that they would be ready for distributors about one week from then.

Not permanent. Google "mehndi" to see some more images. Using a paste from the henna plant, women on the Indian subcontinent sometimes have their hands decorated with elaborate patterns. Lasts for a few weeks.
