Between the rush on SP5’s and the rush on guns in general, I am not surprised. I got mine but it was delayed at one point because (I was told) when they came into the country something was missing and they weren’t going to ship incomplete units. I think the suggestion of getting a refund and buying on GB isn’t a bad one if you can deal with paying the full price.
there seems to be ample supply but the majority of dealers are still wanting $3k if they could live with a $200 profit instead of a $900 profit they could sell them at $2295 and order more I've seen dealers sitting on SP5's for months when if they just dropped the profit margin they could have sold a ton of them.
At that point I'd hope HK would commit to continuous production including more SP5k's
The Song Remains the Same
Ordered one last weekend when they popped up on Bud's, paid $2799 and picked it up yesterday (took 3 days to get it to FFL from when I ordered it). They were up on that site for a few hours and I figured they were back in stock, today they are nowhere to be found but are listed as anywhere from $1350 (on Brownells for some reason) to the full $3k. Honestly for stamped metal and plastic, I wouldn't but this for more than $2k
Hk 416 | Hk MP5SD(Build in Progress) | Hk SP5 | Hk VP9
I bought it for $2799 and once I handled it I thought "No way this is a $3k firearm" as I had never seen one in person before. I'm sure it will be a fine shooter but the construction/materials don't say "$3k" but rather "$1800-2k" tbh
Bob's gun shop in Monroe, Iowa has one for $2350 cash/check. He doesn’t ship so it would have to be someone local or willing to make the drive. No luck for me in Indiana.
