Well what do you call the first SP5Ks then? The US version?
People have become obsessed with a twisted vision of what these are supposed to be which is a rifle/pistol to be used and enjoyed.
In a way collectors destroy the very items they claim to love. Hoard them up, dry up the market for items no longer produced, drive up prices so only fools with too much money can have them. People can no longer afford to obtain and enjoy them so they die in private collections while the world moves on to other things.
If these materialize I'm happy for that. I won't be running to blow $2k+ for a gun that 20 years ago nobody wanted for $700. My POF serves me perfectly fine.

I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms". I hold them up, not the other way around.
And you were talking about $700 HK94s back then too. That wasn't a thing since the 80s. By the time the import ban and AWB hit, their desirability went up. Its not that people didn't want them for $700. Its that they thought "Well, some day." Until all of a sudden, they weren't allowed to have them anymore. Then BANG. They are worth $2800.
A lot of factors in there for pricing .. the import/AWB, collectors market, and so on for sure. But $700 roller locks is from a bygone era.
Own: HK91, SP5k, G36k, HK416, P30L, 2x P8, P8A1, USP SD, USP9, USP9 FDE
Future: SP5? Assuming I can find an honest seller.
Man, there is all kinds of twisted thinking starting to enter this thread.
Local HK dealer got back to me. Got an order in for one at $2300. He said he expects it 2nd week in December.
