Heckler & Koch Germany Not Accepting Commercial Orders Indefinitely
Last week, Heckler & Koch Germany sent out a notice to commercial distributors that they are currently not accepting new orders until they can mitigate and fulfill existing backlog of orders for their ever popular line of rifles and pistols, used by militaries around the world.
The letter states:
We regret having to inform you that due to overwhelming demands from the military and law enforcement agencies regarding rifles our company will be unable to accept new orders from the civilian field until further notice.
We will try to work off already existing orders within the scope of the remaining resources. In doing so, however, there may unfortunately be considerable delays in delivery which at present cannot yet be assessed in detail.
We are unsure if this will affect deliveries for Heckler & Koch USA, which is a separate entity from Heckler & Koch Gmbh. We will reach out for comment with H&K representatives this week at Enforce Tac in Nuremberg, Germany.
Heckler & Koch is currently delivering or about to deliver the following military & law enforcement contracts that we are aware of:
- French Army HK416F – 102,000 units.
- UK MoD/British Army SA80A3 Upgrade – 44,000 units.
- USMC M27 IAR – maximum 50,814 & 15,000 units.
- USMC M38.
- US Army M110A1 – maximum 3,643 units.
- Berlin Police SFP9TR – 24,000 units.
These are just some of the ongoing military trials they are taking part of:
