Thank you guys for all the info! Very helpful. I ordered from Brownells on Dec. 3 mid morning. I was about to start calling around but it was just too easy to just click on the “pre-order” button, get a fair price, and roll the dice. (Plus they won’t charge the credit card till it ships!) I’ve spoken to CS twice and they both said “mid to late January”. Let’s hope that works out and they get enough guns for all the pre-orders. Having a SP5k sbr I almost convinced myself not to jump on the Sp5 bandwagon but who are we kidding...

Imagine if HK decides to sell the SP7 [MP7] you'll read everything from HK loves us to the it doesn't come with the HK customer service girl rep to wipe clean my mags.
No, the SP7 won’t come with mags at all. Instead it will be a top loading fixed box design that holds no more than 5 rounds. How’s that for no bananas?

SP7 would be a whine fest. Whine about the 5 round mag, then whine about they're sold out and can't get one. When restocked, rinse, repeat. That's bananas. :)

Just picked up my SP5 and it looks great! Nice finish and 2 30 round mags. Going to be sweet with a SB Tactical stock.

My LGS gave me a smoking deal on the SP5. I called to special order it two weeks ago and they were happy to honor the price I was originally quoted - this is a great reason of why I like to support my local shops. They only got one in and won't be ordering anymore, so please don't ask where I bought it.

Why would they not order more?

I don't know. They're a small shop and the owner told me they're not planning putting another order in anytime soon (seemed foolish to me). They only deal locally too. Obviously he hasn't checked prices on Gunbroker...

PSA for anyone interested - SWFA is taking pre-orders for the next batch, I was told $2600.

May or may not have to show up in person.

That's one of the many reasons why I DONT support local gun shops. They only get 1 in and it goes to their buddy

Seems like they need to take a class in running a business if they're not ordering more of something that is guaranteed money on the table lol

I'm not their buddy, but I'm a good customer. I called them as soon as I found out that HK was releasing these and they contacted their HK rep to put the order in for me. I'm not sure what you're getting at, but that sounds like some good customer service to me. It's not their fault that they could only get one, that's what HK allotted for them in this first shipment.

Dang, nice...is it a small town? I called / went to every hk dealer in metro Detroit and surrounding areas
Personal friend. He is my man mainly for AR 15 stripped lower transfers. But when I do get a complete weapon, he doesn’t mark it up much. I did call Williams Gun Sight and they quoted me 2350ish + tax. I’m 4th on that list as well.

Lots of differing information out there. A LGS who sells a ton told me this when I asked about being put on a list:

from what HK tells me, any gun store will be lucky to get more than one in the next 6 months.

He said it wouldn't be worth it to put anyone on a list. A handful of other stores were willing to put customers on a list. Several others were like "uh, we don't know".

I don’t know, just going by what I was told. I’m out no money and if one comes up prior to, I’ll buy that one as well. But to post a rebuttal about dealers only getting 1, many have posted in here of their purchase dealer have multiples and there is a sale of consecutive numbered pairs from one seller on Gunbroker to support that.

Just picked mine up. My LGS is evidently more greedy than some of yours: 2800 OTD incl. tax. No regrets though! Beautiful piece.

I agree and I hope you're right. Believe me, I hope they import a million of them. Some dealers were like yeah, we're supposed to get some while others acted like they'd be unobtainium after "speaking with HK". I am on a few lists, so we'll see!
