In advance of SHOT Show, Palmetto State Armory has been teasing all week about the possibility that they will soon introduce an MP5 clone into the US market. That seems to have been confirmed at this point, thanks to an ARFCOM post their official account has posted these photos of their new MP5 receiver.
PSA expanded out of their AR-15 related niche a couple years ago with their PSAK-47, moving from machined receivers to stamped receivers to generally positive reviews and with downright reasonable price points. It looks like the MP5 will be their next platform to target, probably attempting to under cut other players in the field such as Brethren Armament and POF.
There are still many questions unanswered. Are they stamping the receivers themselves? Buying them from overseas and just welding them in house? Will it be a pistol version or an NFA item? What’s the price point?
Stay tuned and we’ll bring you the info as it becomes available.
