Heckler & Koch Law Enforcement: You Have to Ask for the Police Discount

By    |   Thursday, 16 April 2015 02:25 PM

As with a lot of gun makers, German high-end gun maker Heckler & Koch has a deal for you if you're in law enforcement. But you have to ask. Gun makers vary on how public they are in the discount available to individual members, or retired members, of police agencies or the armed services. It's generally called something like "Individual Officer Purchase" program – the discount applies to people who are police or military buying personal weapons – and, in addition to giving police and the armed services personnel a break, it can be good marketing for the company.

"Many civilians buy what they see cops carrying. Local law enforcement has better positive contact with citizens taking reports," said one user, identifying as a police officer, in 2010 on an online forum, hkpro.com, which is dedicated to discussing Heckler & Koch weapons.

Users on the forum at the time mentioned hearing from H&K representatives that the program was getting under way, greeted as good news by forum users saying the high price was all that was keeping them from buying the high-end guns. In December 2010, a forum user identifying himself as a retired Marine Corps gunnery sergeant reported hearing from an H&K representative that H&K offered a police and military discount, with details available from "your local dealer" who could contact H&K for a price sheet.

And indeed, when H&K did announce the program on their website, they mentioned no specifics, saying only, "Contact your local HK dealer for more information. . .A special HK Individual Officer Program price list is available on request."

Some gun makers, such as Sig Sauer, simply post their law enforcement discount prices on their company website.

Glock, also popular with police officers, has no posted price list for its "Blue Label" cop-discount program and says the discount is up to individual gun shops, but allows that most discounts will be $75 to $100 off, depending on the model.

There are also individual gun shops offering police discounts. For example, SSD International offers a discount program covering many brands of firearms and other equipment, including H&K firearms.
