    Yes, but they are currently selling USPs with one mag, that are selling with three mags elsewhere, and they're also selling extra mags separately.

    That's called smart business!
    If you're not going to shop around, you get what you get.

    Unless something is coming straight from the factory - new, I don't expect it to be sold exactly as it was originally sold.

    If those are new pistols straight from H&K or other manufacturers I would put a call in to their main office and let them know about it. Furthermore, I think that crooks are crooks and if they're doing that there, where else are they ripping you off?

    That's an ignorant mouth-breather way to do business.

    I thought he was talking about police trade ins.
    It's silly to expect anything more than what is being offered on a used item.

    If a new item, yeah, it better sell with what the factory sent in the box.

    CDNN is notorious for doing that, removing mags and selling them at a markup. They got me on that scam with my sarsilmaz. Amazing gun for the money tho.

    Never heard that about CDNN, and I've been a customer of theirs for 15+ years.

    However, I do know that Sarsilmaz is pretty famous for that.

    What is going on here? Every other shop that has the LE Version come standard with 3 magazines. Do you think they are stealing the 3rd magazine to resell to people? Their price on the package is $770 dollars LOL I don't mind paying more to support a local PA FFL, but if you are scamming people by removing the 3rd magazine.........


    Anyone else notice this?
    There was a SKU at PSA that had 2 mags for a VP9LE, so it is possible... but that price is outrageous!
