There are SA MP7s. I actually held one in my hands a couple of days ago.
HK won't sell these to civilians. The German export laws are very strict and the US import laws don't help either.
Plus there would be too limited demand and many LE organizations actually tell HK that they don't want civilians have the same stuff as they do.
The semi you say you've had in your hands has only a non-selective fire trigger group to differentiate it from a full auto capable gun. ATF Tech Branch is NOT going to allow such a gun to be sold in the USA, same-same G36/243. Different dimensions between the bolt rails and bolt carrier group would be necessary to prevent easily inserting a FA capable BCG in a semi receiver, same as with MANY other such approved designs, either factory guns (FN SAW semi) or the many semi buildups of previously full auto parts sets.
Thanks for coming out.....
EDIT: Nzfly posted while I was typing. Glad to see it's not just me being harsh with this stuff.

"We do bad things to bad people".
Won‘t = will not; for whatever reason - voluntary or not...
The HK243 is not a G36 with semi auto trigger group. Read the Kriegswaffenkontrollgesetz and the BKA Feststellungsbescheid for that matter.
According to KWKG they must have seperate production lines for civillian guns and the others.
Demand is limited for SA MP7s. I already hear people moan once it‘s on the market. Too expensive, rare ammo, not a walmart AR, etc.
A thousand sold units aren‘t worth that investment.
And WGAF? Well HK obviously does.
I had nothing but excellent experience with German costumer service.
Maybe if you freak out about anything like that, I‘m not surprised that your costumer experiences were bad...

No godly insight, just average for HKPro.....YOU didn't read the freaking thread, or you'd have it too, you just rapped off some generic BS that contributed nothing to the discussion. And I'm not the only one who thinks so. And now you're all butt hurt 'cause you got called on it. First thing to do, put down the shovel.
A SA MP7 is NOT "on the market".
That's exactly what a 243 is. Again, you don't know WTF you're talking about. Ever held a stripped 243 receiver in your hands to make the comparison? I have. Ever applied to import a stripped one and been told why "No" by Tech Branch? I have. Nope, you know what you've read, that's all. Those of us who do business over there are well acquainted with the fact that customer service there is not what it is here.
Dude, your situational awareness sucks. And if you think 1000 units is all H&K would ever sell of a SA MP7 pistol (or factory SBR for that matter) your market sense is even worse.
Few of us here care what H&K cares about. That's who. We love H&K in spite of ourselves and in spite of the fact that H&K doesn't love us. An "einbahnstrasse" if you will.
No freak out, just no patience for people burning bandwidth because they like the sound of their own keyboard.
