    I hate them. You know why? Because of all those times in the late80s and 90s that I missed multiple opportunities to purchase an HK 91, 93, or P7 for a reasonable price!!!
    I was a dumbazz, no other word describes it. :mad:

    I think they are very cool pistols, but even if I had lots of cash, I’m not sure I’d pay what ppl seem to want for them...they’ve gone crazy in recent years.

    I remember well back in the day before the ban they were always all the same price. When I was a teenager around the time my folks got me my 1st AR15 I remember seeing all 3 HK's (91,93,94) for about 650 bucks. I think the retractable stock was another $50 or so. Also remember the very cool looking desert camel ones that came out in limited numbers.

    Then I remember right around the time of the band this one gun store had a bunch of SP89C but they wanted like $2000 for them and I just saw it how ridiculous is that why would someone pay $2000 for an SP89.

    If only...

    I have to say however that the SP5K is, I think, better than an SP89. The SP5 is, I think, far better than an HK94. The SP5 is, by far, the closest to an MP5 w/the paddle mag release, PDW barrel, etc.

    The main reason the SP89 and HK94 are more desirable is 2 fold. They arent making any more, so they are more collectable. The paddle mag release can be added to them really easily. And you can swap in a FA trigger pack if you have one. The SP5 has a sear block in it, and lacks the shelf to support a FA trigger pack.

    I would have to sell all my MGs to afford a HK sear/trigger pack these days.

    My P7M8 is fairly rare, only about 200 were imported by RTG that were chrome. It is by far the prettiest gun I own 79997390_2413499838901306_3041038086260654080_n.jpg

    Whatever number it was, it was the 5.56 version of the HK-91.

    You’re thinking of the HK 93
