    Saw this a couple minutes ago on an HK forum. I hope it's fake...

    The picture looks altered, and I can't imagine they'd stop selling into what has to be their largest market. I hope I'm right.

    H&K's official website is .de not .com

    The website mentioned on the letter www.heckler-und-koch.com/recall only links to a copy of that letter.

    In my humble opinion it is not an official H&K statement.

    I was at the NRA convention last weekend and H&K were very present there. I believe this to be a dud. I talked with one of the reps and he said they had a few new pistol designs in the works that were slated to drop the end of this year. No indication from him of stopping any U.S sales at all

    I saw figures saying up to 40% of their sales are to the US civilian markets. It would be corporate suicide for them to do this. Definitely bullshit.

    The phone number in the letter is also bogus. Wonder what the point of this was.

    Good eye on the details guys. Pretty good photoshop job with a lot of effort being put in with the fake website. I wonder if it's an anti 2a group looking to social engineer/data mine...

    Not very well thought out given the fire sale that it'd trigger for HK products. I myself was about to go grab a p30 on my way home.

    Pump and dump?

    There's always an idiot who will believe it, and run out and spend $2K on a $500 gun before their brain catches up. Shit if GB reacts I might dump a few of mine.

    Probably, but some of those groups have deep pockets.

    I was thinking just along the lines of them trying to obtain sensitive data in regards to sales and volume for their own nefarious gains. I myself would have for sure gone down to my LGS and swiped my card for a USP this afternoon if true.

    This might be an false offshoot for H&K stopping military sales to non-NATO countries per German law.

    I am a direct dealer with H&K and also got the leader in the mail today, it is fake document. H&K is still selling firearms in the USA, whoever did this went to awful lot of work to do it. H&K is investigating it

    Thanks for clarifying for us. This is a little disturbing that someone's trying to scam dealers like this.
