Mind...blown...unless this is a late April Fool's Joke...

Nope, it is real.  HK is gunning hard for the US LE market, and it is painfully obvious that they are going to have to compete on price as well as performance.  This took awhile to get right, and hopefully (and traditionally), they will not need multiple generations, upgrades, recalls, versions, etc. that have been common for the competition.   

 

In the past, it has been hard to justify a pistol for service use that is double the price.  It is going to be much easier to justify a pistol that is slightly more expensive, but does not need a "match barrel", special trigger components or a special aftermarket extractor.
