The NFA register is public domain? Anyone can search through it? Sorry if I dont know. I would think that information would be ATF eyes only.

No, the NFA registry is not open to the public for general search. Dealers are allowed make inquiries as to specific requests on guns that are in the NFA registry, if the dealer has a serial number of a specific gun. A dealer, any member of the general public, or even law enforcement (see 26 U.S.C. sec. 6103) can not make a general inquiry like, 'is there a Glock 18 in the registry?'

No one really knows what is in the NFA registry, and some would argue that even the ATF doesn't know what is in the registry, since the registry predates current methods of record keeping.

Has anyone ever shot both a genuine factory HK MP5 and an NFA MP5?

I assume you mean a registered sear MP5. So the answer is yes. I could not tell any difference between the two. there was a slight difference in dissasembly (no front push pin on the sear gun).
