The UK predator that I have has different milling and cost the same as regular 170R
Just saying

At least a trigger hk barrel with one back, they can make more money later selling people additional backs

That. Upselling 101.

I like the milling but the stock barrel doesn't really match the intricate look of the body.

I would bet it has more to do with production and logistics to not include HK accessories on them.

Chances are these are milled and assembled by Planet and shipped to HK as a final product, and HK just sells them. For HK to install each upgraded widget would make the logistic chain more complex adding to the cost and increased risk for error.

Cool to see HK having their hand in various marker as private labels. Its a really good move. If i had to guess, it allows more sponsorship opportunities where as before there were restrictions on what brands and guns teams can and cannot use. IE if Revo or Outaws went with HK, they still have PE option.

Waiting for an HK Force.

The Predator 170R isn't the same MSRP as the vanilla 170R, it's slightly more, about 50/$75 i think.

Also the milling of the Pred is considerably simpler and cheaper to manufacture than this one.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
