Conceived at the dawn of the millennium the H&K MP7A1 was created as a lightweight and compact personal defense weapon also known as a PDW. It was designed to take the place of sidearms and larger caliber SMG’s issued to vehicle and aircraft crews where assault rifles were not practical. Another advantage this submachine gun had over standard sidearms was that it was chambered for the 4.6X30mm round. These steel cored, full metal jacket bullets fire at 2,400 fps and are claimed to penetrate 20 layers of Kevlar and then still go through a 1.6mm titanium plate. Needless to say the H&K MP7A1 is one little gun you didn’t want to mess with.
Officially licensed by Heckler & Koch this airsoft replica of the MP7A1 is manufactured by KWA under contract from Umarex. This highly detailed model features authentic H&K trademarks and sequential serial numbers. Just like the real steel the body of the MP7A1 is constructed of reinforced fiber composite and is within ounces of the real firearms weight. It features a 25 slot rail which runs the full length of the receiver and is equipped with both front and rear flip up iron sights. The sights have dual apertures for long or short range sighting and can be removed entirely if desired. Other features include a 2 position collapsible stock and integral folding foregrip.
Being a gas blow back the controls and function of the MP7A1 are identical to the real steel to include a fully function charging handle and bolt catch. The magazine release, fire selector, bolt catch and charging handle are all ambidextrous so it doesn’t matter if you are a left or right handed shooter either. Just fiddling with all of the levers and switches is fun enough but when you finally squeeze off a burst you won’t be able to keep yourself from smiling. This beauty shoots like nothing we have seen to date. Its action is smooth yet crisp and it sounds meaner than hell. It is equipped with a high capacity blow back cylinder which is much larger than those found in other KWA pistols so it produces a nice kick and doesn’t suffer from cool down even when you empty the entire magazine in one go. At a sizzling 360 fps the MP7A1 is potent enough to make someone think twice about rushing you and with a heavy .28g round we were able to effectively engage a torso sized target from 180 feet away making it just as effective as an AEG.
Whether you are a sniper in need of an above average sidearm or a high speed player who wants something as maneuverable as you are the MP7A1 may be the very thing you have been looking for.
