Hi guys,

Picked up an HK 93 the other day. It is in very good mech. but prob.
85-90% ext. finish. Its not going to be shot that much so would like
to pretty it up. It was imported by Saco/1976 and I would like to put
the correct HK finish back. Who do you recommend that has exp. with
HK redo's? Cost range?
Also looking for a lite bipod, A3 stock, and a German scope/mount
for it. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

RMM

I would give Jason at Investment Grade Firearms a try they are first rate and his work is beautiful.

If you don't mind waiting the closest thing you can get to a factory job is Terry Dyer. It just may take a year.

I agree with ARS recommendation - plan to wait a bit - Mark knows his finishes. You can also have the trigger pack tuned while it is there.

I've heard of Envirotech and Investment Grade, and of course, Terry Dyer, refinishing HK guns, but does that in any way diminish the collectibility or intrinsic value of the gun, or is this something more widely accepted in the HK collector community due to the fact that the factory HK finish chips and dings if you so much as look at is cross-eyed???

from their site:


We can touch-up black guns only, not the earlier blue-gray SACO imports.


Guess I'm outta luck.

Thanks guys for all the directions. I have heard good things about all those places.I've been collecting HK's for some time now but could always find that real deal occasionally. I was always able to find them in mint condition at the right price. Those days might be going so I've been picking up one occasionally at 85% up. I've always been a real condition freak on everything so what I pickup will have to be redo's. I feel that the hard core collectors will only except those pristine NIB ones anyway so that leaves us on a budget collectors and shooters buying everything else. The HK's recondition nicely and are exceptable to most if represented as that. I don't think it effects the value that much if done right.

How many of those Hk 94's that are being released from CA LE are going to be redone and hit the market as MINT.....NEW IN BOX rifles?????

Thanks for the help,

RMM
