Were any of the HK's actually marked "G3" on the reciever?
Is this a valid HK serial # ?
HK492321
Found a guy selling one, says it is an actual HK. He says it has a flash hidder, threaded barrel and collapsable stock. There are no pics available so i want to make sure it is a real HK.
Any help would be great.
Thanks

Mine is marked HK91 then a single letter prefix and a six digit serial #. Under that will be a two letter date code along with the proof marks.

I believe G3 is the military nomenclature..probably denotes select fire...HK91 being the civilian semi-auto designation

Go list your question at sturmgewehr's gen. disc. board. There is a fellow over there Buddy Hinton, who is a real expert at this stuff. From his postings I understand that he was a distributor of HK products for a long-time. HK may have brought rifle other than HK91 marque.

All HK91's have a flash hider and threaded barrel. My 91 has the serial number "A 0xxxxx" (x's being numbers).

yes. some semi-auto G3s were imported by SACO in the early 70's. They even have a swing down lower but are semi-auto only guns.
