    Hey Guys,

    I thought that HK was ramping up production on these. Based on the SN of this gun that does not seem to be the case. Has anyone seen these for anywhere near MSRP as of late?

    When I called HK in Dec. they said that supply would be greatly increased by Feb. Apparently not.

    Exactly let the craze die down. They will eventually sell at msrp.

    .
    I could see a collector wanting one of these and paying a premium for the lower serial Number range but the average guy unless he was lucky enough to have a contact to get one at the msrp price, just wait.

    I just SBR’d my Z5RS and a SP5K last year, eventually I’ll pick up a SP5 when easily available and a lot cheaper....

    I really want one, but not at those prices. I'll wait a while.

    I guess PT Barnum was right, after all.

    For a about a 1000 less you could have one custom one built from a parts kit.
    Built as a pistol everything would be German hk except for the reciver.
    Not to mention it could be a sear host and you could if you so choose a rail welded to it and or have the front sight euro chopped.

    Well I should have said you could check and see what the current price is for a build. Been awhile since I had one built so iam not sure what the price is on a build nowadays.

    I have an very much like my SP5K as well. That said, these are much closer to an actual MP5 feature wise.

    For shooting a build is no doubt just as good. That said, as a shooter not sure what fun these are unless SBR'd I'd suppose.

    In time the real deal HKs will far exceed a build gun value wise. I think that many of these are being purchased as collector guns. I think that barring a legal disaster banning them those doing so will be richly rewarded in having something that's fun to own and that appreciates substantially.

    The legal threat however, I fear, has increased very substantially due to this nightmare pandemic.

    I believe they were available at retail there for about a week. Longer than I thought.
