That was awesome. Even without knowing any German, it was very entertaining. Too bad I'll never get to own 90% of those weapons! :(

Oh and if someone figures out how to download it, let me know. I would like to watch it again with out it rebuffering every 10 seconds.

Oh man, I can't think of any other company, factory, or theme park I'd like to visit more than that place.

Although I think I would be tempted to yell at them for putting all the nice firearms in the mud, instead of selling them to me :p

Showing us this video and telling us not to do that is like telling Ted Kennedy not to drink. It just ain't gonna happen.

Why is it that when I hear the spoken German langauge, even with a female voice, it sounds like someone's intestines are being ripped out? Must be too many WWII movies when growing up. ;)

HK has some of the best engineered and built firearms. That was an awesome video.

Check out Meret Becker (http://www.meretbecker.info/), then change your mind. :D

I noticed it, too. I'm going to start the official HK 1911 rumor...HK will be manufacturing their own 1911 clone. :D It happened with the M-4, it could be true with the 1911.

How can I get a job like that? Not necessarily with HK, but I think it'd be cool being one of the dudes in the black polo shirts that did all the weapons testing.

Its not a rumor. HK has a very low priority 1911 project. I think all their effort is in the XM-8 right now.

Do you have a legitimate source to comfirm that? I don't think "defensivereview.com" counts, seeing as they declared the USMC was adopting the Glock 37 and .45GAP cartridge :rolleyes: .

Its appeared openly in American Hangunner. I confirmed it with someone I know in the firearms industry.

Search HKPRO and 1911forum for additional discussions.

Hmmm, prototype 31 round 9mm USP mag in the Grey Room.

Anybody want to bet some aftermarket company will try to draw up plans for a production version after 9/13?

Don't worry if you don't know German. I do, and the images made it all mostly self-explanatory either way.

Very cool video.
