Borderline if not outright fraud in the description. The seller KNOWS full well this item is not rare (in Europe) and has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Gray Room. All the recently released by H&K clear stuff was supposed to be part of a Swiss Police bid effort.
Past that, this is just a stripped frame. For that money the "winner" (choking on my own laughter here) of that auction could have had FIVE of the complete "schnittmodelle". I paid EUR 1670,00 for mine back in August, and that's about what all the others sold for over there too. None of that **** is rare, H&K sold off a butt load of these frames, complete guns, and clear G36 furniture components and the dealer who bought them seems to be out since he hasn't listed any of this stuff for sale since September.
The "winner" got heeled, and hard. Every other bidder on that auction should thank him for jumping in front of them to take the hit.
EDIT TO ADD:
As I noted above, the dealer I bought my schnittmodelle from is currently advertising none of this material. Another one however.....
So, apparently the person who paid $11K for one could have had 55 of these frames (assuming they have that many in stock) for the same money.
And now you all know where to order your own for cheap. I do not generally use my Type 08/SOT FFL for anything but my own affairs, but for FOR THIS ITEM ONLY I will do imports for HKPro members who want one of these frames, at below market rate.
Think of it as a group buy without sending your money anywhere except the actual vendor in Germany. They ship your frame to my exporter in Germany, you pay me nothing until it's here in the USA ready to be shipped to you. Note that they have either Compact or full size.
You're welcome. Merry Christmas!
