There is a guy on the Sigforum saying that he called HK to ask about the price of hi capacity magazines and was told that HK does not plan on producing them despite the sunsetting of the ban. Has anyone else heard this? I assume that we would still be able to buy LE mags, but this is definitely not a good thing.

Even if they dont, then they will still obviously be making them for law enforcement/military. Just order those :-)

I think HK needs the civilian market more than they realize. I hope their attitude bites their ass at some point.



Yep, let's bust HK's balls based on hearsay from some guy on a *SIG* forum.

They're already making the mags for Europe.. all they have to do is turn off the machine that did the LE stamp on them. Don't believe the hype.

OnPoint Firearms, a dealer I respect is saying the same thing.

If they don't offer full capacity mags for their handguns, they'll just see their market share slip to zero. No matter how PC they would like to be, if they want to sell handguns, they will have to offer what the market demands.

Did anyone miss this???

I often buy from dealers who are LEO/.Mil dealers as well.....they will have the mags.......which means I will have the mags too........



Exactly. They are making the mags, for Europe, LEO/gov, ...

They will be available, although it is possible that H&K themselves may not directly import and sell them to the public for a while.

I have already ordered 3 new *previously* LEO USP9 15 round mags from cals sporting armory - they are now sold out of these but have various other HK hicap LEO mags for sasle to everyone now.

They are going fast - if you want them you might to take a look now if you want HK hicap mags for your HK pistol.

CDNN is also dumping their new and demo LEO Pistol mags - HK USP40 15 rounders for $29, glock 17 17 rounders $14.99, going fast.....

My brother checked and one of the local dealers says he will have USP45f mags in two weeks.

+1

IF true, I'll sell my USP and buy another sig or 1911

Hell, keep em and import your mags from Europe. Forgot we can do that now. Either way, you can get em ;-) No big deal. I don't like it, but im not going to sell my MK23 over it either.

Well, H&K just recently got a major contract with the Feds to supply several milion dollars worth of P2000's in all calibers...including .357 Sig...so my guess is that they want to remaim "deniable" where this stuff is concerned. The Germans could care less about sales, just as long as they can say that "H&K did not import" the mags!

I ain't getting rid of my best USP 45f!

According to the Botach (yes, I know) email special of the day, they are out there (or going to be).

They had 13 and 15-round mags for the USP9C and USP9, as well as links to Glock and Sig mags.

Still very pricey, however.

Well, I guess I don't have to worry if they make "hi caps" for my P7M8 or not lol...

I just ordered two online yesterday. I'm not telling where so I can have them all!!!
