The MP5/10 and MP5/40 are easily identified from the original MP5 by their straight plastic box magazines. Other external differences include a bolt hold open device. Since the MP5/10 was introduced in 1992 they only come with late MP5 features, such as wide "tropical" grips and late model trigger groups.
Due to the modularity of the MP5 a wide range of tailor made models can be created. These include forearms with integrated lights, semi-automatic trigger groups, accessory rails for optics and laser, etc.
The MP5/10 and MP5/40 are variants of the MP5 chambered in 10x25mm Auto and .40 Smith & Wesson respectively. They were produced in the 1990's and featured some subtle differences from the MP5 design.
