Clyde Armory had some new-in-the-box G36Cs that just came out of bond, so I picked one of them up. If you're looking for new HKs then your best bet is to work with one of HK's "master dealers". They know which flaming hoops you need to jump through to get the weapon you're after (but it usually takes a few months).
The Major has it right. It's much more likely to get one through a master dealer or a dealer that has been working with HK for eons. HK makes really good stuff... they just aren't quite down with the whole smooth customer experience, especially if you ain't military waiving a big fat contract thing.
a few years back, but because of the demand, the reinstituted importing them. I think it had more to do with a over seas contract they had and lack of being able to produce enough for the US market. So that is not a false rumor, it is truth.

As for getting bbl's......GOOD LUCK!!!! The only way to get a bbl is through a parts kit. ATF is the problem there, not HK. When it comes to the other parts, it is possible, but HK does not keep a lot of extra parts on hand, and the ones they do have are generally reserved for agency repairs only.
Just thought I would weigh in on the info I know.
I am so Jealous of you right now. Who do I have to take out to get one of these beauties? Oh, thanks Josh for my G36K kit a while back. You made a freind for life here in Nashville. Any C kits laying around lol?
