    I think the timing would be off compared to other hosts. People were able to get around the Zenith block, but as I understand the SP5 has a higher block.

    Timing would not be off as long as the trip surface is in the same fore/aft location on the carrier and release lever.

    Have another beltfed with him, but has been there for a while so place "in line" is fine even with possible timeline. Also have everything necessary for 33K build but wonder if he could get to it in time if he does shut down in June.

    Calling him Monday.
    Yea all of us in Virginia are worried right now. They democrats welcomed voting for a child f*cker for a second time and think that is normal but don't want us owning guns.

    Had a guy at a gun shop explain to me not to get the SP5 because it takes proprietary HK mags!������
    it seems to cause some people real emotional anguish not to insist, at every opportunity, no matter how irrelevant to the discussion, that you....

    I had a guy tell me that it is an overpriced firearm and wasn’t worth having. I asked if he could elaborate and he said it was an “ancient” system and wasn’t reliable. He went back to his “it is too expensive” as he was drooling over some KAC parts. He proceeded to tell me that he heard the army is going back to the old M110 because HK couldn’t deliver a rifle that was as accurate/reliable/or well built. He has a “buddy with an MR762 that will not shoot better than 4” at 100yds”. I just smiled and shook my head.

    I like certain brands more, but I don’t hate certian brands more.

    Iím bidding on one on Gunbroker right now for $3125.

    Seems a bit steep considering the retail pricing (but OOS everywhere) and Iím not sure where to stop bidding since guys are continuing to bid.

    Are more being imported or should I just stop being poor and keep bidding?

    Do you guys call people like that out?

    Not HK related, but I recently bought my first shotgun. I went to a LGS because I was in a hurry and needed 00 buck.

    I ask the guy behind the counter for it and as he hands it to me he said ďThatís exactly what you need for a home invader! If they donít run away at the sound of racking the action first!Ē

    I asked him why Iíd want to give away my position by racking a slide, and if he knew anything about wall penetration with 00 buckshot verse a .223. Plus, a .223 has 30 semi auto rounds, whereas my pump shotty has only 10. Told him to do some research and stop giving bogus advice.

    But I guess I just like being ďabrasiveĒ...

    I didn’t call him out, me and the store owner got a good chuckle out of it because he knew how many HK’s I own/owned.

    Eurodriver,

    I did call the guy out. But I have a tone I use which is both mocking but also invites the person to join in the mocking. It's hard to describe but it is useful. Usually I just ignore this kind of stuff, but this was too silly and HK hating by gunbros usually sends my eyes to the back of my head.

    Honestly, I am waiting for them to come down to MSRP. I have (and I know you have) too much stuff already to pay that much extra. BUT I have bought plenty of overpriced guns just because I wanted to the damn thing so I'm not judging you.

    I think H&K is planning to import more SP5s, but if you gotta have one now...
    " Political tags ó such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] ó are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    More SP5s are coming. Though $3k’ish seems too high, wait until they are no longer imported and people will talk about how they should have bought one when they were “only $3500”. That said, if you wait a bit you will likely find one for MSRP.
