I just found out the HK rep told Jim at The Bullet Hole (http://www.thebullethole.com) that they have moved the HK 91 tooling from Brazil to the US and will begin production for domestic sales ASAP.

MSRP: Under $1000

Oh ya. :D

That's pretty damn awesome if true... I've always wanted an authentic HK-91, but haven't wanted to pay $2,000+.

This would be really good news if true.:cool:

Wow... I'll buy one... after debating a Century CETME or G3, the chance to get an authentic H&K in .308 would be too good to pass up! And it's cheaper than the M1A I have been considering instead...

Sounds odd, Brazil uses Imbel made FALs.:( Maybe the guy got the wrong country, maybe he meant Mexico.

Anyway there is also rumors that POF is making US made receivers from Pakistan, and I heard they are really close to HK.

Sign me up. I've been debating over a G3/Cetme but would rather have a brand new made by HK rifle.

Now how bout a semi auto G36 to go along with it?

Seems too good to be true... Available and affordable from HK? Never happen, lol.

I'm not entirely convinced either, but it would be nice if HK took some interest in us poor peasants. Just passing on what I heard. They might have heard it wrong or I might have heard it wrong but there it is in all questionable glory ;)

As stated at HKPRO, maybe they meant JLD's use of Portuguese HK tooling? To the best of my knowledge, Brazil is neither a licensee nor user of HK products.

POF has hinted at importing some stuff, perhaps as 80% receivers.

I'll believe it when I see it. I really think no major company is going to tool up for a production with the possibility of a new ban showing up.

HK built a major plant in the US last year. Why not produce new rifles at that plant?

You heard a rumor in a gun shoppe! No way!

Did this guy try to sell you a Glock 7 as well.:D

Ahhh, gun dealers.:eek:

I think that has to do with the XM8 (in anticipation of getting a new contract from the Army???)

Any gunowner who would rather protect their investments than see a wider availability of firearms at affordable prices is no better than Feinstein or Schumer.

Building a plant here and tooling up for a new gun, even if you move the machines here are two seperate things. I really think none of the big (Sig, H&K, etc) companies are going to bring out new versions of rifles until after November. If Kerry is elected there WILL be a new ban coming. If Bush is elected then we have a better chance of no new ban.

At SHOT 2k3 I got a big giggle out of HK claiming that they were "Renewing their commitment to the American civilian market."

Hey, Heinz! Maybe Anglisch ain't your first tongue, but "renewing" would imply that you had a commitment in the first place, ya knob! :p

If you do decide to make your 91/93/94/36 rifles here, however, there are enough sufferers of Iwannacoolgunvirus to make it profitable. All you need to do is come to terms with your fear and desire. ;)

...and price them appropriately as the German answer to the Kalashnikov... Ha! Last time I checked, the standard HK customer won't buy one of their guns if it isn't overpriced. Remember when they brought out the USP at the same price as the Glocks and Sigs? Sales were mediocre. They jacked the price up and sales increased...

If it didn't cost an arm, two legs, and a dark-haired virgin it wouldn't be an HK. And I like HK. :D

The current price of a USP 9 is about $20 cheaper than a Sigarms 226 9mm from www.impactguns.com ....

The USP9 in on sale though, won't last too long. Although if I had the money(I say this a lot)... :D

I thought the price of all German firearms went up due to a tax or some such in Germany.

Pinned&Recessed, mcmoyer, Sactown: I agree.
