We now know why H&K guns are so expensive! It is because mansions, aircraft and yachts are so damned expensive!
US Hedge fund investors allege that Heckler & Koch Beteilungs GMBH (not to be confused with its US subsidiary H&K USA) majority owner Andreas Heeschen used part of a 100 million euro loan that the company took out to purchase 40 million euros worth of property, 12 million euros worth of aircraft and a 12.5 million euro yacht!
The lawsuit was filed in New York State. Heeschen denies the allegations.
