Zenith Z-5P semi-auto pistol - MP5 clone
Basically, an MP5 K version with a rail. Small, very nice.
Working out of the MKE factory setup by HK in Turkey, Zenith is producing firearms that are the closest to the real thing. HK produced the MKE factory equipment, and using Zenith is building upon parts that are identical to the HK MP5K, without the logo.
MKE-manufactured 9mm semi-automatic pistol with 5.8-inch 3-lug and 1/2×28 RH threaded barrel. Includes handstop forearm, Picatinny optics rail, MKE hard case, three magazines, military-style sling, two extra takedown pins, cleaning kit, and five-year warranty.

The Z-5P will accept most accessories made for the MP5. Charlie's recommends the SB Tactical pistol arm brace and perhaps some custom handguards.
See the review in TRUTH ABOUT GUNS by Nick Leghorn. It is a few years old, and the Zenith team tells me that much of their initial quality problems have been solved.
NOTE: MUST READ FOR FIREARM AND LOWER RECEIVER ORDERS:
THIS IS A SERIALIZED FIREARM. IT MUST SHIP TO AN Federal Firearms License holder. No civilian exceptions.
Also your FFL must contact us by email, and send us a scanned copy of their firearms license. We prefer a .pdf copy, and not a .jpg. This is your responsibility to obtain and have emailed to us, or snail mail. We do not have a fax machine. Best practice is for your FFL to note your name and order number in the email header. We will not follow-up with your FFL. They should send to: FFL@charliescustomclones.com . If you forget, you can email us at the return address of any of the order confirmations that you receive.
Note: California residents, click here for CA compliant processing. This will also work for New York residents. We will act on your behalf and instructions to ship to restrictive states, but ultimately, it is your responsibility to know the local and state laws. We are in Virginia, and cannot, and do not know all the nuances of other states. If we ship to your FFL, and there is an issue, we cannot accept a return, so please make sure that you know and follow your local and state laws.
