I love the SP5, if price is not a factor I'd say go for it! That said, you can't go wrong with the MPX, it's a great weapon. I SBR'ed mine.

I believe you made the right choice too. I love my 556R and it's a harder niche to replace for what a solid 556R in good working condition brings to the table. Mine could use a few more things but it will always do just fine with simply irons.Thanks everyone for the info. I’ve put hands on a 4.5 inch MPX but want the 8’. A LGS had a 4.5 in stock w/brace but it seemed a little short to shoulder. I get the “brace concept“ without having to SBR it. The LGS said it could take some weeks to get the MPX and an even longer wait for the SP5. I should’ve bought that Colt ar in 9mm for $1,000 new six years ago but got my Sig 556r instead.
Have you ever shot a 9mm MPX or similar? Once you have you would understand. Super soft shooter, staying on target is a breeze, light weight, costs about 700-1k less than a MCX. Also there is a fun factor of the MPX that can’t be beat.So can anyone explain to me why choose an MPX 9mm instead of MCX .300blk? What's the gain or benifit of this?
I think the MPX is perfect for me at home (CQB). I like it because it shoots so smooth and fast you can just keep tack driving your target with little effort. It’s super fast back on target especially suppressed. I don’t have a Rattler but I do have a 9” Virtus 300 BLK and for CQB, I’d grab the MPX every time. Rent one and let me know what you think. It may not change your mind but I still think you will like it. It’s worth a try. Oh yeah like you said…. way cheaper to practice with. 300 blk will leave a hole in your wallet. I’ll need to sell a kidney to get more subsonic rounds😂I believe you made the right choice too.

So can anyone explain to me why choose an MPX 9mm instead of MCX .300blk? What's the gain or benifit of this? A Rattler is not that much heavier or larger and if you want less ballistically, shoot subs. Someone will probably remark with, "buy them both", to which I'd retort, "just buy two Rattlers", lol. I just don't get it!
Unless it's to save money on ammunition for training what am I missing? Is it for less penetration compared to rifle caliber rounds? I'm lost...
Have you made a decision yet? I’m curious on which one you will choose.So I’m in the hunt for either the Sig MPX 8 or an HK SP5. Price and availability may be a factor in deciding but interested in your opinions, pros cons. I was once assigned an MP 5 so have a little history with H&K’s, not so much with the MPX 8. To brace or not to brace, that is the question. Pics plz Thnx
