Having a blast with the HK MP7 room broom (VIDEOS)
By Chris Eger
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.
