It's a long story, but my 995 stock is cracked, so I called up to find out what I needed to do. A nice lady took down my info and transfered me to a very chatty tech.

Told him the situation, he asked if I was OK with replacing the stock myself, and said he would get one out today.

Now the chatty part.

I asked him if the camo stocks were still available, because I'd like to purchase them. He said no because they cost too much. I told him I saw a pic of one on the HP forums, and he IMMEDIATELY said in a bragging voice, "Oh, then you must have seen the new stock that's coming, right?" Of course, the fabled stock, I joked. He laughed, and said they've had to make a LOT of changes to it, which is why there's been delays.

I asked him if there had been a final product yet, and he said that they were happy now finally with the new stock after the last changes. I then asked if it has gone into production yet. He said the goal is April 1 for production to start.

So I asked him if there were any chrome parts for the 995 or C9s that I could purchase and he said none left now, and warranty repairs were going to the black. He said too many people called up to order them to customize their guns, but they just gave 'em away because they're nice.

That was about it.

April 1st... April Fools Day, huh? Well, here's hoping, but as Yogi says "I'll believe it when I believe it." :D

"Going into production" leaves a very, very, very large window open as to when they'll be ready and for sale. Too many false promises for my blood.

Nothing new, they'll continue to say that the new stock is almost ready for another 15-20 years probably.

I bet Duke Nukem Forever comes out before we see a new stock or a 4595.

No offense but you also said they told you "New stock NEXT WEEK". So im going to have to go with the idea that theres nothing coincidental about it being put into production on april fools day.

That was from a Ohio dealer that also attended SHOT, NOT HP. Today it came from the horse's mouth.

I do love irony, and I think it would be hysterically ironic if they go into production on April Fool's Day.

So fun story!!

11 AM, my door bell goes off once. I look out the window, and there's an unmarked white van outside my house. Ya, time to grab the 'ol C9.

Go back to the door, and the van starts pulling off. Did I just get cased??!?

I wait until the van is out of site, phone ready to call the PD, and I open the door. YAY!! MY NEW 995 STOCK!! Nice! Less then 24hrs and it was in my hand!!

I gotta lay off the coffee......

Smells kinda fishy to me. I think they would use a black van and not a white one......

Oh and I heard about the new stock once too.
