In fact, me thinks they definitely won't be lower, perhaps even a bump in price for their yearly adjustment for costs...And don't expect the price of the weapon to go down when the US production starts!
Common... we've got tom make 'em like our Cadillac's with spinners.Also, in addition to price going up...
I am very concerned about the US made Hk's getting more...."creative" in the form of USP "Classic - Special Edition Series". Gold engraved "Anniversary Editions". Charity Fund P2000's. HK45 new "Beavertail" Series (Special Edition -of course). Stainless framed USP/P2000 "Classics" (also Special Edition). Homeland Security 10th Anniversary Special Edition P2000. Hk "Personalized Home Defense Edition" with an engraved picture of your-self or loved one on gun. Hk "Elite" Series - Special Edition, with special "Custom" wood backstraps and/or side panels. Choppers theme USP full size Special Edition Series. Any Hk Pistol (insert movie, or NFL team), "Special Edition Series". And....finally, HK1911(SE); "Platinum, Diamond, or...Casino Special". P7R (Rail), Collector's, Anniversary, Charity, Platinum, Stainless, Beavertail, Diamond, Las Vegas, Soprano's Edition....take you pick or add your own. Adding HUNDRED$ and turning into a free for all along with many-many questionable aftermarket support! Endless....
Some of you out there (are already liking this), NOT good.
Dear Hk GmbH, PLEASE, PLEASE, do NOT let this happen.
SwissArms/SigSauer (Swiss and German) and SigSauer US really don't get along from all of the info that I have gotten over the years.Thinking about it kinda piss me off..
Why the hell did SIG-Sauer Germany allow their pistols line to be Kimberlize by SIGARMS US? Don't SIG-Sauer Germany have any control over the US made pistol?
Well, if the frame and other components are made in Germany and Wilcox is making SOME of the parts, plus assembly and finishing, I think there should be SOME reduction in price, although not as much as I was first hoping (dreaming) of. Maybe down to $800-825?
Also, anyone heard any update/change to the rumor that the Wilcox barrels will be conventionally-rifled? (Apparently, barrels will be one of the parts Wilcox will be making, which I find ironic, since SIG and S&W import barrels from Germany [Sauer for SIG and Walther for S&W] for their American-made pistols...)
