Considering that it is HKparts selling them, I thought the price would be higher.

For a USA made barrel they should be $250 and after the initial batch is completed the other B&T dealers will have them for less. Just FYI for those that don't want to overpay.

Was it you that told me they we're going to be made here? Maybe someone else. But still, I'm waiting until the other B&T dealers can get them.

Wasn't me. I was told they were produced in Switzerland since day one.

Unfortunately it seems they will be the only ones selling them. At least for the time being.

I want to say it was dakota tactical on here that said they were getting the barrels for oem use(ie installing on their own firearms) but that hkparts had an exclusive agreement to sell them at retail.

Edit: Yep

We have been given the new B&T MP5KN barrels under and OEM agreement which allows us to utilize them in our D54 family of firearms however prohibits us from sales of the barrels themselves. Retails sales of the barrels are currently an HKParts exclusive.

Yeah... I'll just say that's complete horse **** that B&T shafted their other dealers from carrying them. Reminded me of the mistake HK made a years ago with outsource their parts biz.

Yeah, but DT is getting them from HKParts at "dealer cost". Basically adding layers, there-by increasing costs to the customer or to be absorbed by the dealer.

As a community of HK fans were always paying more for less and then find ways to justify why it's a good deal. I just don't get it.

How do we know anyone was shafted? Perhaps HKParts was the only one willing to fill their MPO so they received the order.

Yeah, maybe... Maybe not, but I'm willing to bet a buck that millions can be made by controlling supply and keeping competition out. Yes, that can be called capitalism, but it can also be a monopoly as well.

When you have a bunch of extra cash floating around because you don't pay taxes (or buy a company from relatives for pennies on the dollar), you can make exclusive arrangements with suppliers.
