"Like we mentioned before, the MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason. We all know that’s technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting applications to speak of. It is made to put down scumbags, and that’s it. Mike Cabrera of Heckler & Koch Law Enforcement Sales and veteran law enforcement officer with SWAT unit experience points out that this is a gun that you do not want in the wrong, slimy hands. It comes with semi-automatic and full-auto firing modes only. Its overall size places it between a handgun and submachine gun. Its assault rifle capabilities and small size make this a serious weapon that should not be taken lightly."I haven't been able to verify, but there is a response attributed to JT that digs his hole even deeper on their Facebook page (in the comments on the photo of the gun in question, you'll probably have to dig a little.) It pretty much reads as an excerpt from the Brady Campaign handbook with talk of "falling into the 'wrong' hands" and defending H&Ks decision to not produce a "civilian" version to keep military and police safe from such a tiny lethal device.
