Yes, the HK94....and yes, they stopped because they were no longer importable to the US as of March 14, 1989.

Were they all destroyed? ...no, what came into the US before the ban is all there is.
...hoarded? yes and no, they still come up for sale.

Above is correct ...They did import also a pistol version the SP89 that was imported after 1989 but it too was banned from import ..They are now importing a new pistol model of the MP5 into the USA ..And plenty of people POF/Zeinth etc are making semi auto pistol and in some cases rifle version of the MP5 and MP5K guns ..And people like Omega are offering semi auto pistol and rifle models built in USA on german and US parts .

The hk94 were not imported as much as the 91 so will go for more ..Cool guns though
