Toad say's HK gonna make civvie weapons..

This part makes me laugh..



I know you've been considering leaving the civilian market for a while and you announced what sounds like a large final blowout sale for civilian guns & parts. Was the timing of that move from civilian offerings impacted by a belief that this rumor regarding new HKs becoming available might be true?

If it does happen, it seems that it would certainly hurt civilian HK clone makers. Existing HK 94's, 94 clones, USCs, etc. could take a huge hit if these real HKs come to the states. What does your gut tell you about the vaildity of the rumor?

We are exiting the market due to the fact there is alot of overseas business that calls us everyday, they do not want POF junk, MKE and only supply 10-30 guns at a time and Hk germany will only be making plastic guns at that factory very soon due to high labor cost, USA is a great way to lower the cost of high labor guns...

We feel that even if Hk does start to do business in the USA our MP10 will give the UMP and the MP5 a run for the money big time when the 40, 10mm 357 sig and 45 acp versions come out early next year

Hell we are even going to be blowing out old parts sets like the sl8 starting in just weeks, if it is true we are getting out, if not we are still getting out. I do not care either way. Shot Show will tell the tale

Sounds more like Toad is havin a goin out of buisness AGAIN sale..

Personally I think Toad should be commended and possibly rewarded for his originality for making the only semi autos on the market that you can play Russian roulette with and have a 99.9% chance of living to bitch about it.

What cracks me up about Special Weapons is how they goloat about being better than HK despite the numerous shortcomings their re-engineered rifles have had over the years. How can one gloat or pretend to make a better product when all their are doing is making a cheaper copy of the real deal? Its like buying a Mercedes made in China that was built by a different company and then parading it around like its better than anything Mercedes could build. Go figure.
