    Default New HK45C USA Made

    At my lgs this morning browsing and noticed a new HK45C selling for $699. I handled it for a bit and noticed that the slide had no serial number, date code etc. It was completely blank on both sides. The frame was stamped saying it was made in America. I've never seen a blank slide before. Has anyone else noticed this? Is this possibly one of the cost saving methods HK is using that brought us these new lower prices? I handed it back to the associate and decided not to buy it at the moment. Something just didn't feel right...

    Cross Creek put this out when the price cuts were announced. It's legit.

    I think we've all used to the SER#, proof marks, and manufacturing identifiers on the pistols, even those previously US made. I'm with ya, I like the markings but there is no impact to operation or quality, let's just hope HK GA got it right and these pistols are as well made/tuned as the German ones.

    If HK expands beyond HK45s to P30s, P2000s, VP9/40s, USPs...this will be the reality unless we are loud enough to let HK know we want words and numbers on the side of the slides...I think we do.

    I think it will (initially) be the hammer-fired pistols.

    I might have to pick up a US-made P30 LEM and TLG-spring it... ❤️

    I normally search out made in the USA stuff, but call me a snob, I like German cars and German guns.

    A US-made HK with a blank slide? Talking about a naked gun. I say we petition HK not to do this. The OP is correct. It just doesn't feel right...

    BMW and Mercedes both have assembly plants here in the USA. It’s (presently) the same thing with US branded pistols.
    The new guns, at the new plant, might be a different thing altogether.

    CIP/N, Stag Horn, DE, barrel/frame/slide matching SN are regulatory Germany - they won't be on a US gun.

    So do Beretta and SIG. A lot of SIG guys gripe about them not being the same as the German ones. Let's hope US HK's will be the same quality as we know and love. I'm not at all against HK making guns here FWIW. I just hope they prove out over time to be up to snuff.

    It's human nature that the experience of the machinists, metalugists, and gunsmith experience in Germany gives them an edge definitely during the start of the US operation in process and qc if nothing else. Hopefully, quite a few German employees got work Visas and are assisting for the foreseeable future.

    It has been publicly stated that HK engineers are here in the U.S. assisting the operation. No doubt the Germans have what is likely the very best (along with Austria) industry for engineering of specialized parts like firearms. Does that training pipeline and the wages of those professionals cost money, absolutely.
