More Proof They Hate Us

Via SayUncle, it appears that H&K has settled their lawsuit against German Sports Gun for the GSG-5. There will be no more imported into the United States. I should have picked one up before they become collectors items.

    Yep. I’d say current GSG-5 owners are looking at a pretty decent 10-year return on investment if they choose to hold until 2019.

    Still, I do hear the S&W M&P15-22 is a better rifle.

    So now we can’t have GSG-5’s, which are a .22 version of SP89’s that we can’t have because of the import ban, which are semiauto versions of MP5’s that we can’t have because of the ’86 machine gun ban. Are we gettin’ rolled back here, or what? I suppose that Wii version of the Heckler & Kooch is next to go. Then we won’t be able to have an imitation of an imitation of an imitation of the real thing.

    In H&K’s defense, they’d have to set up production here to be able to make SP89s, as you haven’t been able to legally import guns like that since daddy Bush’s assault weapons ban, which was never rectified.

    H&K entered a licensing agreement with Umarex, which might be why they want the GSG-5 off the market: http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2009/09/18/umarex-has-licensed-hk-416-mp5-and-mp7-for-22-lr-clones/

    H&K licensed a .22 MP5 to Umarex, which might be why they want the GSG-5 off the market.
