U.S.A. -( Magpul is known primarily for two things – high-quality AR-15 magazines and excellent AR-15 furniture. But in the last few years they've expanded their product lineup to include high-quality products for multiple weapon systems including the CZ Scorpion EVO, the HK G3, and even the Combloc favorite, AKM. But following a very promising showing at SHOT Show 2020, they're finally dipping their toes into the realm of the roller-delayed, pistol caliber market of the MP5. Full details below from the official presser, starting off with the new Magpul MP5 SL Hand Guard.

Magpul SL Hand Guard – SP89/MP5K (MAG1048)

Our 5” SL Hand Guard is a high-strength, injection-molded polymer upgrade that provides improved ergonomics, anti-slip texturing, and M-LOK® compatible slots for mounting modern accessories. It’s an injection-molded handguard solution for SP89/MP5K and their clones that provides better utility and enhanced control of your firearm.


  • High-strength polymer construction for rigidity and stability
  • M-LOK slots at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions
