    I know it's pronounced "coke" properly but I don't like saying it that way... so I just say HK or H&K.

    That's actually right I believe. I don't think it has such an abrupt ending as "coke."

    Coke but with a gutteral "ch" at the end.

    Ask anyone that's taken German, its Coke. But its not a clean "k" at the end.

    The german reps that came down that brought the 416s in pronounced it "KO" but we also had a guy that had the last name Koch and he pronounced his last name like it was spelled, like "Kotch." so who knows.

    yeah, seems about right, but one of our guys name was Aaron Koch, from a full line of German decent and his grandparents were from Germany and he says they have always pronounced their last name "Kotch" must be the Americanized version.
