    We should see the HK243 by 2020 and MR556 A3 by next year. That’s enough new products to keep HK going for a while longer. If we ever see a SP7, you know HK’s in financial deep sh1t so be careful for what we wish for.

    ^^Lots of fun content here, this proves the relevance of HKPro in that we HK fans need somewhere to vent! Its hard to not notice all of the SHOT stuff other manufacturers churn out, while HK has a lot less action on the "hot new releases" front. Missed opportunities? Sure. Jim Schatz (RIP) himself acknowledged this multiple times. But to repeat some of the other comments here, HK isn't one to release fads or be quick to release a new product on the same timeline as other manufacturers because they have another year or so of R&D to make sure it is perfect out of the gate. THAT is why I'm here, and why I keep drinking the same sweet trickle of HKool-Aid. But for me the positives always outweigh the negatives.

    I want HK to announce full part availability at SHOT. That's always been my gripe. Legacy parts would be great but I would settle for currently supported products. How awesome would it be to be able to buy all MR and MP5/SP5 parts from hk? Need a rear site drum or A3 stock? Just click and done. Wouldn't that be nice? SP5 isn't there yet, but for the sp5k on the HK webshop there is currently a half page of in stock and two and a half pages of out of stock parts. (For the MR556: 1.5 pages in stock/ 2.5 pages OOS). I hate relying on GB and/or 3rd party sellers.

    Did HK say they are releasing the 243 & A3 or is this just speculation because they need the money? The SP7 is a dream but I like to dream too.

    Speculation, but if HK has any business acumen, they should release the 243 and A3 ASAP. We’ve been waiting long enough.

    IMO an MR556K and MR556C are more important.

    HK is not going to release any factory sbr’s. I wish they would but I don’t see it happening.

    I think that unless they start building them stateside, you're right, due to 922(r) concerns. In much the same way that German regulations cause some of the things I find problematic about the MR556 compared to the 416. (If I had my way, a semiauto only 416 would be identical to a full auto 416 with the exception of the auto sear and the trigger group parts that enable full auto fire.) I have a 416 upper on a BCM lower, so I don't have to worry about the things that annoy me.)

    That would make to much sense.

    i just hope/wish/pray H&K will throw their hat in the ring with competition to the Hellcat, P365, etc a P365 sized hammer fired pistol with 10+1 would be a big hit. or maybe at 81 yrs of age i'm too set in my ways.
