The VP9 is not built like a P30.
The VP9 is a good deal at the current pricing, whereas now the P30 is an absolute steal.
I just want to know, definitively, where new P30's will be produced going forward - Germany or USA. I've heard conflicting news - one one hand, someone recently said that a conversation with HK employee indicated they definitely won't be made here; but an article which interviewed HK USA's head of marketing seemed to strongly imply that the lower prices were because of US production. Since current supply has been mostly bought up (except for .40, which most don't care about), it could be a while before we get new production, when we'll really know for sure.
If they're going to be made here in the US, I'm buying two German P30's this week, even at the inflated price. No offense to HK USA, but I just like mine being German made.
Overall, if the lower price is because they're going to be made here, it will probably be a good move overall for HK as a brand and for a wider consumer base - just maybe not for some of the purists on here, haha.
What is it then? GER or USA?

ATS579 I think this is inevitable but agree that it will happen sooner rather than later. Of course that depends on the market demand for USPs around the globe, but I can't imagine who's still buying these bricks... besides me... and California
ricky_bobby can you site some of these "several" agencies still ordering USPs (beyond repair parts)? I would be surprised to learn there's still demand from LEAs for new USPs (beyond occasional replacements and parts)
Keep your booger hook off the bang switch till you're ready to bring the hate
I cant stop thinking of how sigs transition to the US from Germany was like. Did they drop the price on sigs? Did German made sigs become more valuable??? Anyone ?
If you seek peace buy a USP.
