    Can't say I'm surprised. There was a price to be paid for concentrating on military contracts and not putting any civilian product out. There's a single unsold SL8-4 with that wonky thumbhole handgrip for $1999 at my local Cabelas. Too pricey and there's cheaper better alternatives. Oddball orphans gathering dust screams a manufacturer that is out to touch with the market.

    I remember when my friend could take his legal HK93 to the range with its legal 40 rd mag on it. HK has nice quality products.
    You work your whole life ,then you die. At least guns have given me some fun on the way.

    In fact, the situation is so bad that, as The Firearm Blog reported just last month, H&K employees jointly voted to increase weekly work hours without paid overtime, as well as nixed a one-off payment of 400 Euros per head for the month of July, so as to provide their beleaguered company some form of relief.

    Something you'll never see from UNIFOR?...
    But there is only one person that I see on CGN as being truly despicable by every ethical and moral standards and worse: to be dangerous to the community itself, and that's Cyclone the subversive.

    I knew HK were making guns, but that they try to sell them is news to me.

    Their prices are really out to lunch. They're worse than SIG.

    You can't argue about there quality or design, there main "market" is LE and MIL, however in todays economy with the "lowest bidder" mentality, it's a "race to the bottom" unfortunately.
