I say this all the time, but never get a "second", so maybe I'm the only one who feels this way. I have a few HKs and I do believe they are, in fact, better built guns than GLOCKs.

BUT... I just can't get used to a gun that has sights designed to put the bullet BEHIND the front sight. It says on their web site that this is intentional. Add to that, there aren't a lot of options for after market sights. Of course can't blame them since, 1. the demand is not there and 2. the sights are different across so many models, both in heights and dove tail cuts.

So, I GLOCK is on my hip and I'll be taking one to the USPSA match tomorrow (if the crappy weather lets up, but that's a whole different rant. ) The HKs do look good on the shelf in the safe.

HK and Sig are the Ferrari and Lambo of most guns. Glocks are like Fords..reliable and pretty cheap.

If you have high cap mags in the Hk pistols you should be able to sell them because 9mm is still available in quantity and relatively cheap. I think most people want the .40 and Sig .357 but if you price the 9mm right they will sell.

NONE of my other brands do either. The one exception was my M&P 45c but it had a loose ejector so at least it had an excuse!

Perhaps I am dense, but what do you mean by “sights designed to put the bullet BEHIND the front sight” Do you mean point of aim = point of impact (Image 2 or 3) a six o’clock hold (image 1) or something else?

Image 3. From the shooters point of view, the bullet hole impacts behind the sight, rather than crossing it (image 2) or above it (image 1). If one is used to image 1, then a gun designed to shoot to image 3 will shoot quite a bit low for them.

In this political climate, you put any gun on the shelves and they will be gone in weeks or days.

Although I think Glocks are more popular than HKs, I do notice that most folks who own both brands prefer HKs over Glocks...and I am one of them.

I've always loved the USPc in 9mm. Bought my first one in 02' with ambi safety/decock for $630 out the door new. Carried it for years. Sold it like an idiot. Picked up a second one last year with the LEM trigger for $750 and am happy I did so. One of my favorite pistols of all time.

I think the reason you don't see many for sale is because people don't want to get rid of them.

My only regret to buying the USPc 9mm is that I can't find an LEM kit anywhere. P30 LEM spoiled me.

What price are you going to ask for them?
