Update: after a few more emails they have agreed to replace the AP5. I sent the old one off today, I'll post an update when the new one arrives.

Thanks--- it should have been replaced long ago. ;)
Was the problem ever determined? :unsure:

Sorry for the necro post, but, I JUST got the replacement AP5 from Century. I'll make a range trip post today after I test it. Got a box of Aguila and a box of Federal (both 124gr)

Well, I fed 80 rounds total of American Eagle and Aguila 124gr through it today. Money-into-noise speed with a full mag from each after a few slow fire.
Ejection was solid on every round and it seemed to have no hang-ups anywhere.
Accuracy is TBD but I shot five rounds at 50yds resting on my elbows with the irons and it was okay.

Wish I could see 50 yards, let alone find the center of a piece of paper ;) Hope this MKE pans out for you.

Thanks man, I'm very cautiously optimistic.
There's 1k rounds of 124gr SAR on the way to me in the mail to stress test it before I commit to a tax stamp.

And I feel you, I'm near sighted as a church mouse lol, thank god for diopter sights!

Just got 1000 rounds of 124gr in to test the new AP5 Also, HK Web shop has SP5 mags for $64 free shipping and you get a free AR mag pouch if you buy 3+ So I snagged three German mags for future testing.

AP5 UPDATE: 200 rounds of SAR 124gr between three different shooters, both bag rested (20 rounds) and standing magdumps with MKE mags and KCI Gen2 korean mags.IIt's now at 280 rounds total of three brands of 9mm.

Ejection was consistently at 2-3 o'clock and 10-13 feet (I paced it off lol) Zero issues and it was just pleasant to shoot the whole trip. I think she's gonna be good!

Random thing I just found while cleaning the AP5, if you put a 9mm and the MP5-N thread protector in an ergogrip grip plug it fits the MP5 finger groove grip housing PERFECTLY And is super tight.

(The thread protector is just to make the rubber gasket wide enough for the grip hole A wood dowel or something of the same diameter does the same job)
