    Default Official manufacturing statistics top secret?

    Ive been trying to do research on the number of official guns manufactured each year by HK and other major manufacturers but the data is no where to be found (or my googling skills suck)

    Does anyone know if this data exists?

    Is it ever published?

    If not, why is it a secret?

    AGG (his handle) or Tony has the most complete list of HK firearms, dates and serial number ranges probably available in the wild. Matter of fact he recently started selling his collection of data. I would recommend reaching out to him.

    Info is for US manufacturing numbers is available online via the ATF website.
    "...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."

    I have been told that HK’s production capacity is 30k guns per year. Take it for what it is worth.

    Link for the lazy: https://www.atf.gov/file/133476/download

    In 2017 HK manufactured on 50 Rifles. Don't overlook that they only open the new GA plant as of 11/2017. For 2016, they manufactured ZERO pistols and ZERO rifles. Past years' numbers no where near 30k, but they might surprise us for 2018/2019.

    Numbers from my previous posts on the topic:
    In 2013 HK made 5,569 rifles out of their old Newington site
    2,082 total rifles in 2014
    2,051 rifles in 2015

    You’ll never get this from HK, especially who they sell to and how many. Some governments they sell to probably aren’t interested in having that information made public.
    Do you even HK, Bro?

    Yeah I figured, with governments, no disclosures or background checks.
