In short, our ATF (our government), doesn't like foreign (German in this case), firearms being imported here for civilians. On the other side, the German government (their version of liberals), also causes problems exporting firearms.Your thoughts are particularly correct. That was part of my “LONG” story part. .
And some of us suckers will pay MSRP+ just to ensure our future kids may have the chance to sling ammo down range with our cute SP5K-PDWLet's not forget the panic buying of guns and ammo didn't help as well. Almost every manufacturer has no guns in stock not just HK you can find some guns but you will pay MSRP+
Yeah the days of buying pretty much any "cool" gun are probably gone forever in the country. Buy what you can now. Though if you don't have any ammo for it you probably never will now.All good points. And with the current U.S. political climate changing for the worst, I would highly recommend snatching up any new imports as soon as they show up. Who knows if infrequent HK imports will soon dry up completely?
You cant even buy HK rifles in Germany right now let alone export them to the US or anywhere. No German retailer has received a long rifle shipment in close to 2 years now. They will put you on a waiting list though if you pay in advance that is. Your money will be blocked for as long as H&K will take to make a delivery.What’s the deal with the importation of new hk’s from Germany why is it so hard to get new guns here from HK?
Maybe you'll be able to get a surrendered one.Yeah! Good for H&K, bad for us civilians. H&K won't have any resources to supply civilians for at least the next 10 years with the current military orders in the pipeline. And that's just the current estimate. If H&K keeps pulling in other military contracts, the civilian market will have no realistic chances to get their hands on an H&K rifle anytime soon.
And that also counts for spare parts. I'm hesitating right now to buy a used MR308 because of this.
I find it already remarkable that the french army is willing to wait 10 years (from 2017 to 2028) for the complete order to arrive. We will have laser blasters by then...
I guess we can bury our hopes to buy a new H&K rifle anytime soon.
Yeah! But the surrendered one's will fall in the hands of the Taliban or the Mali rebels, or wherever the french chose to lose their next battle.Maybe you'll be able to get a surrendered one.
