It's happening! And I bet you guys thought I had taken your money to Gstaad for some winter frolic... The first sets are coming back to HK from the engraving lab and are being prepped for shipment. We are still waiting for a few batches of parts from the mother ship, but Christmas delivery is still looking pretty good! I've been riding herd on this even while I have been in the hospital getting my chemo. The nurses are pretty sure that I am some kind of evil Lord of War character with all the phone calls and stuff. I'd love to actually be able to show the folks there the product of all of this work. Lot's of gun enthusiasts at MD Anderson. Unfortunately, even a CHL is not good enough to be able to bring a firearms onto hospital property in Texas. Might have to have my wifey tote one in...
Anyway, things are looking good and it appears we are still on schedule.
And now to begin contemplating the next Buy. Here's the dealio: Part of the reason that the pricing was so attractive on the first go round was because of where the gun was made. We can literally choose from ANY current production item. With that said, it will still be the ones made here that offer the best price advantage. And while it would be complimentary to do the HK45C as the next one up, the pricing is not going to be stellar and I'm pretty sure the sales would not be nearly as impressive. With that said, I'm leaning toward a long arm. The MR556. We could have it tricked out with coolio upgrades and such and the pricing would be very nice, indeed. Nothing etched in stone, though. Of course, if the timing works out so that the MR762 is available...
Best wishes for a successful chemo round and I suggest keeping the toys out of the hospital.

Thanks for clarifying the HK45C as being a probable no go. I've set aside the cash & been holding off on buying one, hoping the next group buy would be for same & priced well. I'll start looking locally now. Good luck with the
next group buy.
The MR762 would be great! I was speaking to someone at HK this last week and they said the first batch of MR762's were done. All they are waiting on are bolts from Germany and they will be ready to ship:)

I'd be in for the 762 or the 556.
I was setting aside funding for the .45c but will be setting more to the side with it now! I'm down for pretty much anything you are going to set up, I'm just glad you gave a little warning for me to prepare. Good luck with your chemo, I wish you the best.
And your pistol looks sweet!
