    I expect the same things apply as mentioned previously. Limited appeal and expensive and hard to find ammo that would have to be neutered for civilian use. A friendlier government environment doesn’t change the other stuff.

    I would disagree on the ammo ..Lot of places online have the non AP ammo for under 20 a box of 50 ...Sure its not the "fancy" ammo but ammo can be had for it plus as there is only gun that use it it is normal in stock ..Same with mags etc they dont go for much online when they do show up .

    I think it is manily the tick of getting there gov to ok them exporting a pistol model plus our gov oking it etc ..Why they dont built it here or maybe even a rifle or at least a braced pistol that I cant say

    IMOP there is enough a HK fan base here for a correct UMP and MP7 to sell enough to justify them

    I mean I would get a MP7 just to have it even if it was semi auto only and a handgun

    I mean the PS90 and 5.7 pistol sell pretty well even if they are netured in many ways and the "good "ammo is pricy and rare

    My hats off to FN for taking the chance on the ps90s, fs2000,fn249s. Wish HK would do the same. The MP7 would be awesome in a pistol platform.

    I can see not having the demand to deal with the hassle of importing a pistol version… But, with the current demand and market for braced pistols making the NFA a joke, and having the new facility in United States, I can’t see why HK USA wouldn’t hit the market with the lower-priced PDW for the civilian market

    B&T doesn't seem to have a issue selling their pistols. HK wouldn't either!! The SP5K doesn't seem to stay in stock long !

    I can say with 100% certainty, one was sold in the US (Hah!)... I don't know the exact number, but I know the ones in local shops around here didn't last long. Also, Cabela's sold a large volume of them through one of their promotions, and those didn't sit on the shelf long either. So I have to think it was a decent number? just my thoughts.

    That's what I was trying to get at. I mean if they sold to the public at a fast paced one would think to try another batch once it gets depleted, or at least sell the SP5, HKCS if you are reading this I'll get one to match his lonely lil' bro SP5K.

    If I can infer with my SP5K serial and I'm guessing it is only sold to US market, there's at least 42XX SP5Ks in the US.
