Called HK today, They told me 6 weeks for both the HK45 and Hk45c. They had told me before that the compact wouldn't be out till next year....... The question is, Do I belive them????

One can only hope that this is accurate information but you can never really be too sure when dealing with HK. I would love to have the HK45 by the end of the year.

Yeah, but my P30 was worth every grueling moment of the wait.
I know! The P30 is great and definitely worth the wait. I just hope the HK45 is the same.

I called in June and they told me Sept. I called in Sept and they told me Nov. One starts to wondering when, if ever, the HK45 will come out.

Sure you can believe them. They didn't give you a reference point for the start of the six weeks :) I like HK as they make good product, but you gotta wonder about their marketing department's IQ at times. Piss off enough people with incessant delays or lines of BS and it will come back to haunt you.

If this is true, I would have a great Christmas gift......too bad that it is not likely.

Not me, or at least not likely. Too much competition in the piston driven AR department. LeitnerWeaise is in the lead for me quickly followed by MagPul. Unless there is somethng dramatic with the other two the 416 is too little too late. The HK45 on the other hand is a different story. My G21SF is good, but I am hoping that the ergos of the HK45 will be much better.

I can't imagine putting the Magpul ahead of the Delta approved 416. Give me the 416 over the XM-8 copy any day.

Greg, that's a great point! If the 416 is good enough for delta, why would anyone want to say they would consider LWRC or magpul masada first? I'm sure both of them are quality rifles. But neither are being used by people who are in harms way with there choice of rifles to defend them selves with!

I really want the HK45 to hurry up and come out. Originally it was supposed to come out in the fall of 06. Right now it is between that and a Glock 21sf for a duty gun.

As for the 416 I will probably not be getting one. My 6920 will run all day long and I hardly have the same needs as a Delta operator. The real advantage I see with the piston would be with full auto fire, which most of us will not have anyway. The DI AR system is Marine approved and in my opinion that is as good of an endorsement as a rifle being Delta approved.

I bet we won't see the HK 45 until March of 08. Sad but true gentlemen.
