The firearms industry is stupid and ugly. Both HK and B&T have done a good job of recycling peopled busted, old sh*t but doing it so well that people pay a premium. Remember HK was once bought just so it could "fix" one of the worst standard issued rifles currently issued by a first world nation.
B&T is basically hocking tuned up CZ pistols, Steyr TP9's, Tec 9's, SCARs while HK is selling M4s w/AR18 gas systems, knock-off Mag 58 and Minimi's, and they still have their 1950's tech roller-delayed actions.
Everything in small arms now is recycled from something else...I just want something that runs right.

In my opinion what most HK fans want is the remake of the HKP7 M8/M13 and the HK 94. To a lesser degree the HK 93 &91. I heard they were asked about those in the past and the company stated that the moved on from those designs and sold the tooling. If that was the case who made/makes their HK SP5K?.
In the 80s they were a cutting edge company. Although their HKp30s are good pistols and so are their HKVp9, the USP(s) were not very popular. Of course the price didn't help. Their HK Mr 556 is out of the price range of most and is cosmetically just another boring AR15.
My advice to them is make something innovative that they are willing to sell to the citizens or bring back classics like the P7M8 and th HK 94. It appears PTR and other companies make a clone of the 94 and SP 89/sp5k models.
Gun manufacturers are like the movie industry--- all remakes and no originality!!!
Was the lady in the video from the original post bashing HK?
My German is pretty bad, but I think maybe she said she didn't like the company.
