HK was burned VERY BADLY with the last assault weapon ban. It took a very long time to convince them to sell to civilians in the US again. You can bet that there are managers in Germany saying "I told you so" right about now.
That said, their customer service is awesome and their products are top notch. The only complaints are price and the fat-man-in-a-chair-internet-drama driven "HK hates you" nonsense.
