This would be a great kick in the balls to Frau uber-fuhrer Merkle.
Even better if they move 100% to the USA

Apparently the export laws here (ability to "make a deal") are less stringent than Germany's, at least insofar as their market. Their execs apparently took it in the wallet over that deal that sent pistols to Colombia (banned customer) via the Sig Sauer USA division.

Export laws were the reason that SIG (Swiss) joined with J.P. Sauer (West Germany) to build the 22x series. West Germany was less stringent than Switzerland. History repeats itself.
