The most practical, standard-issue SMG ever developed, as of 2556.
This weapon is one of the best submachine guns in the galaxy. Fully customizable with addition attachments, this gun is deadly in the hands of veterans. One downside is the pistol round has issues taking down shields, though it destroys flesh and bone. DMR uses this weapon when he needs a close quarters weapon that can spit out a lot of lead in a very short time. The MS5 is popular with the Civilian Militia and certain groups within the New Galactic Republic's armed forces.
