One of you all set this up??

A GFM to BUY H&K outright, now that we can talk about. But the owners in their thickheaded arrogance would probably not sell, and so as I say, they deserve to go under. No sympathy for them here, none at all. My sympathy is for their employee's.
The most often heard excuse is, "The German government won't let us". Well, quit f#*king asking them for permission they won't give! EMIGRATE! You already started the process (20-25 years late) now follow through! Get the USG to issue H1B visa's for each and every H&K Oberndorf employee who wants to come, residency to be made permanent shortly after their arrival. Not all will come, there will be plenty of Americans going to work for them here as well. They may even be able to keep Oberndorf limping along for a while, but why, all the countries they want to sell military weapons to would be allowed by the US to buy those same weapons, so no downside there. Sh*t, we sell Colt M4's to Iraq, who thinks we wouldn't allow H&K USA to sell guns to France or whomever else. They would sure not be in trouble for selling guns to Mexico, or being prohibited from selling them to the Saudi's. There's no downside to H&K GTFO of a country who's government wants them dead, corporately speaking.

More profits usually means cutting quality and losing your world class status. Its a double edged sword my friend
I bet that if DNA kits were used on the upper echelon of HK GmbH personnel, one would find a genetic connection to those in the upper ranks in CA, NY, IL, etc.!!!
I see the term "military and police" thrown around.
As a member of the police side of the house...that transitioned his agency to HK's...HK does not give a flying **** about working with police...maybe short of NYPD, LAPD or Chicago PD...or maybe their own "polizei"
Getting paperwork and EUC's approved from Germany for pistols readily available here was a joke. Only a whopping 4 pistols came from HK direct and we said screw 'em and finished out our transition with a local retailer. If I had known then what I know now about dealing with HK for plain 'ol pistols (I was not surprised that 416 support was nonexistent prior to this) and that the Gen 5 turned out as well as it did, I would have waited and stuck with Glock for standard issue.
