I have been quietly observing this great site for some time now, and am about to make the plunge to buy my first HK. I would really like to get a German made HK45. It's just my preference and not an indictment on quality. From what I've learned here I have been looking for a serial number beginning with 126 and not hku. I have found one with 126 but the frame says HKI Trussville AL. This confused me about it's origin. Can anyone help me with that? Sorry about the long post.
