Having a blast with the HK MP7 room broom (VIDEOS)

Typically just seen in B-roll from various frogmen type units, the Heckler and Koch MP7 is hard to come by in any form. Larger than a pistol but smaller than a comparable subgun, the 4.6x30mm caliber MP7 is rare in the U.S. unless you are talking about post-1986 dealer samples or military use (the SEALs really dig them) due to its fun button, which makes the above video from Mike at Garand Thumb a great watch.

A latecomer to the whole late 1980s attempt at producing a personal defense weapon for NATO military use to replace both sub guns and pistols with a compact firearm capable of penetrating a steel helmet or Warsaw Pact body armor at under 100-yard ranges for use by support types and officers, the MP7 followed in the wake of the arguably more successful FN P90.

If you dig the above video, check out the below HK SMGs for comparison.
