Heckler & Koch Buyout

From HK with love to the shooting populace:

You still suck and we still hate you.

I have literally been waiting for weeks now after SHOT to post this, because I wanted to make sure I had thoroughly dredged the rumor canal first.  Remember that rumor about Cerberus Capital buying up HK that was supposed to be announced at SHOT?  Never happened.  No announcement, no nothing.  Now, while that may not kill the rumor mill, everyone I talked to said something along the lines of “what?” when I asked them about it.  There was absolutely zero buzz about it, and a few of the people that got asked about just laughed openly at the thought of it; which sort of led me to the conclusion that it was just another internet rumor.

I will hedge my bet by saying that it could happen, but if it does it will surprise the hell out of me.

Sorry fanboys, but no Bushmaster made HK piston ARs for you.  At least for now.

  1. I think the German government might not permit such a deal. Governments sometimes like to keep defense contractors locally owned.

    Interestingly, I found out that NASA uses HK21 machine guns.
