HKP kaput--- and silent!!!
Nothing about RTG. RTG was getting bad parts(allegedly not genuine) from HKParts the way I understand it, when it was owned by Adam. I think they may have gotten sideways with each other over it. Might be someone with better or maybe even more accurate details can elaborate.

I’ve added a link to my post above. It’s the top sticky in the RTG sub forum.
"...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."
HKParts sold vented 10.4” gas blocks as OEM, and they were not. I had one that looked like someone took a punch set to it and banged the crap out of the Rear end of the block. While occasionally HK releases some not-up-to-par items, I’ve never seen anything like it. In addition, if I’m not mistaken they initially tried to pawn off their Version of 416A5 trigger guard as OEM. It didn’t last long though as we all knew better. We bought them, but we knew they weren’t OEM as HK doesn’t make the A5 trigger guard with a spring loaded pin like the A1 and HKParts A5 “type” trigger guard. As for HKParts. Luckily I have Most of what I want/need. And as I’ve stated before, unless HK steps the F up and starts stocking what we customers need to keep out firearms and projects moving along, I’m done with ‘em.

"Just because you're paranoid doesnít mean they're not after you!"
ETA: I found the stuff I read a while back. I read it long enough ago I didnt remember the details, apologies to all for my stating misinformation. But anyways here it is from RTG site:
And just for clarity sake I have zero connection to either party other than being a customer. I am still inclined to buy from HKParts just not with my card ( I do this with other web merchants as well). Also have bought from RTG and been happy as well.

They sucker who they can and then try to quietly deal with anyone who objects.
I was willing to stomach the fact that they charged more than everyone else because they often are the only people with the HK item I need in stock. But since it's clear I can not trust them to sell me the genuine article, even when paying a substantial premium over a clone part, I have no reason to do business with them anymore.
Think about that? You sell two parts, one for more than twice as much because it’s “Genuine HK German” but they are really both clone parts. The kind of greed and deceit that takes... the same greed and deceit that landed Adam in prison for cheating on his taxes and illegally selling guns.
