they sent me a new 40...........sorta.........
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.
As has been stated for years, H&K really does not care about the civilian market. If they did they would be producing highly desirable firearms at their GA plant since they can't be imported in the configuration we want. I doubt if they will ever give us what we want, the good ole days of the '80's & early '90's are gone forever. Just think of what could have been, US made semi-auto 416 A5's, MP5 SBR's, G36's, and HK433's. It's enough to make you tear up at what could have been.
A Diamond is just a piece of coal that made good under pressure!
We’ve been one election away from climate/market change since the:
1934 National Firearms Act
1968 Gun Control Act
1986 Hughes Amendment “Firearms Protection Act”
1989 Assault Weapon Ban
1993 Brady Bill
1994 Assault Weapon Ban
The politics are not going away, they knew that when they first got in the game when they exported the first 3/62 G3’s.
By 11/62 they had to make changes to the rifle to please the climate and continued exporting roller locks until ‘89.
Found an interesting article: How Foreign Guns Invaded the U.S.
“Overseas gun companies flock to the U.S. for an obvious reason: to access the richest civilian firearm market in the world, one that operates with notably lax regulation. Gun control in Europe is far more strict.”
The article is primarily based on handguns. It talks about companies like Barreta, SIG, Taurus, Glock ...etc., I didn’t see Heckler and Koch mentioned one time.
Getting back to Jack_Bauer said. If your primary civilian market is based in the US and the civilians are asking for semi auto rifles that you can’t import/export; one would think that if you were interested in that market you would of broke ground for a manufacturing facility here ....30 years ago just after the ‘89 ban.
What’s the hot new color frame for this year?
