    I needed to come back and note that my skepticism on these actually dropping was completely wrong.

    It's amazing to me that this basically went from hearing about it here to in hand for members in a few weeks. Congrats to all who landed one and congrats to all of us going forward as this is an excellent move by our favorite manufacturer.

    Also, there are now upwards of 15 or more of these on Gunbroker, all at gouge-y prices. Seeing that number grow daily and knowing these will be a regular production item tells me that the unbendable laws of economics will favor the buyer in the very near future.

    I can be patient and enjoy Zeniths until that time.

    Also, pretty sure zenith themselves admitted to shitting the bed, skipping QC & rushing that batch followed by apologizing to everyone.

    Lol..what was your point again?
    Lets see the pics?

    Not making light of you at all or trying to be obtuse.

    I am just saying that it seems some of your recent experiences in the roller lock world seems to have been fraught with issues and dissatisfaction, hence my post.

    If you have issues with HK carriers and the paint on the new SP5s you have purchased, I for one would like to see that first hand with some pics to highlight your issues since I and many members here have not seen one in person much less the type of issues you are describing.

    There are some aspects of roller lock guns that are not quite up to current day manufacturing techniques since this was a gun whos heyday was in the 60-80s and so that comes with the nature of what they are, even if dare I say it's an HK made gun. So what you might think is a defect might be perfectly acceptable on what is essentially a MIL / LE gun toned down for the rest of us i.e. the civilian market.

    I agree but it all depends on how many show up. Low Supply and High Demand does tend to out the gougers. But that is the free market. I don't separate them much from folks who buy water for $2 a case and sell for 40 after a hurricane. Not quite that low but flawed characters none the less. They are opportunist's and that is their right. But those who gouge now shall never have my business. Even if their prices come down and they are the only game in town.

    Those who have acquired them I am happy for you. I want one, I like it, even though I have never held one. I will wait for reason and if it does not come, oh well. I don't need and won't pay to sit in the box seats. A hot dog and the nosebleed seats are fine with me.

    No contract or deal when they 'put you on a list'. They just say that to get rid of you and make you fell appeased. Happens all the time.

    That's my plan. And the correct drum sight would be a bonus. If these just stay at $2800+ though, this poor will probably be passing.

    Amen to that, vote with your money. After all there are plenty of businesses that place customers' satisfaction and loyalty above profits. I would like to read who got it under MSRP and those who price gouge.

    Ive seen comments about the sight like this before. I have to wonder, if it's the very sight HK themselves installed then how can it be "incorrect"? Because the 94 has a drum sight?

    Mostly a rhetorical comment but it kind of shows the odd way of thinking when it comes to this stuff.

    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.

    The correct sight can be had from HKParts for $25. I don’t see what the big deal is.
