    Had a hell of a time getting all the tektonic dust out of my German 45c. Didn't see any in the U.S. made one.

    As early as 2011 as that is what the first group buy was comprised of. Wish I still had mine

    I was clearly talking about bosses, not engineers. You know, since we're being so literal here.

    But in reality, the whole jump over to people made in Germany was intended as an exaggerated extension of a subject that is kind of silly from the start.

    OP, I'm thinking some of these markings and or stampings are interesting to collectors. Made in Germany, the flaming bomb symbol, crests and such. I don't think HKs functionality comes in to question at all. If you get an HK you get a piece of work, an art form, a weapon of quality at a decent price. Yes, a decent price, they are not expensive for what you get.

    Flaming bomb! Now that would be collectible.
