Bobcat Weapons BW-5 9mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

That long but necessary tube is the only thing keeping this from being an exact copy of the fully auto H&K MP-5. This firearm required a bit of care in selecting its best ammo, because of overall cartridge length issues, and because of the higher velocities obtained from that 16.5-inch barrel, much higher than from any normal pistol. This was a handy unit, easily capable ofbeing fired one-handed.

The Bobcat's trigger mechanism was contained in a steel housing, with a separate poly pistol grip. The rifle came with three 10-round magazines, but 30-round ones are available. The BW-5 came with an excellent manual. It had a black epoxy coating for the metal finish, with other color schemes available.
The arrows point to the non-folding bolt knob, top, and to the clip fastener for a three-point tactical sling. The standing bolt knob would make clearing a potential jam easier than digging for a folded bolt. The safety moved through a 90-degree arc, but was easily moved. If you like 9mm, this one may be for you.
