    Default "Batch Flow" of HK Pistols to US Distributors

    I'm thinking to get a P2000SK and have been looking around at online dealers and local gun stores. It seems that these are pretty much out of stock where ever I have checked. I found one dealer that listed one as in stock for more than $1000, but I see no reason to pay such a premium.

    An observation that I have gotten more than once is that HK pistols are manufactured in batches, and it could be weeks or months until another batch of P2000SK pistols arrives in the US. Too, some have suggested that the P2000SK is being phased out and at some point in the near future-- if manufacture has not already ceased permanently-- that it will cease sometime soon.

    I'm in Southern California. Does anyone here know when the last batch of P2000SK pistols was imported, or when the next batch might be expected? Has manufacture of these ceased permanently? In particular I am interested in this package deal.

    Cabelas has it in "Limited Stock" but it doesn't appear to be the LE version.

    No intent to spread rumors. It seems plausible from a certain perspective: it is an old design, I'm unaware of any recent contracts from government organs for these, and they dropped the price. Who knows, that is why I am asking here.

    Ouch, $799. On top of that my LGS will add $50, plus tax and DROS. I'm not even sure Cabelas would sell to someone in CA.

    They did not drop the price of the P2000/SK series as much as they did for the HK45 and P30 series, but that is not an indication of any plan to discontinue the product line. There is another rumor about the P2000 that has been circulated for a few years now and it is just that: a rumor.

    I’m in SoCal, and it has been a long, long time since I shopped at Bass Pro. We have one near Ontario, but even so, a bit of a drive. Do they facilitate intra-chain transfers between stores? Even if they do, the ten-day waiting period we are required to observe out here means going out there twice, which I can avoid if I stick with something more local.

    What is the downside to shopping via Gunbroker?

    I’m glad to read this. It is on-roster in CA until 1/1/2020, what are the chances another batch of P2000SK reaches American dealers before then?

    No way of telling. HK is starting to send out small shipments of the P30/VP9 series and they go fast when they are listed. If you are holding off until the next batch comes in, and hoping that it is suddenly going to mirror the P30/VP9 series in price, you are going to be left without a chair when the music stops.
