HK v. ATI Lawsuit Settled

MILWAUKEE, Wis.--Anthony DiChario, president and C.E.O. of American Tactical Imports, issued a statement last week that said litigation filed by Heckler & Koch, Inc. against German Sport Guns GmbH and its U.S. distributor, American Tactical Imports, Inc., together with all counterclaims, has been settled.

Production and importation of the original design GSG-5 ceased as of Oct, 8, 2009 with the signing of the agreement. The remaining inventory now in the USA can be sold by ATI, all distributors and dealers. ATI currently has GSG-5’s in stock.

All sales of the GSG-5 by ATI must conclude by January 31, 2010. ATI will continue to service every firearm that it imports into the USA, DiChario's statement said.

Son of a gun. I was thinking about selling my GSG 5 carbine but now I'm not sure I want to.

HK could proably make a lot of money by working out a licensing agreement, but I guess not.

I was actually considering buying one of these at one time because I want a H&K MP5 so damn bad. Thought it might quench the thirst a little bit.
