$2000 bought me the whole lot. 

I got a very low use German made HK91 with an Arlington, VA stamp on it. A factory 22lr kit, a claw mount with some Leupold scope, a telescoping stock, 45 magazines of various manufacture, some new, about 10 are aluminum. And a couple hundred rounds of 7.62 match ammo. 

Thanks dad. 



The box this comes in is awesome.

Very good!  Nice rifle, and that .22 kit is the bomb!!!!

The .22 conversion kit is a good $500+ on its own. Subtracting everything else, you probably bought a factory HK91 for maybe $500.

Yeah, I'd say you did ridiculously well.

You hit a home run for sure! Congrats on the new German hardware.

My dad said he paid under $500 on the rifle when he bought it new, so I guess he still made a few bucks on the deal. 

He hasn't shot it in over a decade and wants to get another motorcycle. So win-win.

A few, like maybe $3. Your dad has good taste, seems like a pretty awesome guy. Congrats!

That's the 91 .22 lot and not the  common G3 kit. The g3 .22 lot is $500 +. Those  $45 steel mags are priced  like late 80s prices.  I'm guessing the bipod is German and the coll. Stock is likely  commercial and not surplus (painted and not parked).

Bipod would be around $200 min. And stock in the $400 range. Mount is going for around $400 now.

I'm considering selling the 22 conversion and the collapsible stock. Don't really see myself using them ever. The stock is painted to match the finish of the rifle and it looks to be brand new. Also, the 22 kit has a manual that says it's for a G3. What are the differences between the 91 and G3 kits? Thanks

Cool. Crazy what they are going for now.

The date code on mine is IC so it's an 82 model.

You did good. I laughed when I saw the leupold because I saw a ton of guns set up similarly when I was younger. Those guys loved their deer assault weapons

I meant as far as the 22 conversions. 

I'm probably gonna put some type of low power variable on it.

Figured out the difference in the 22 kits. The spacer in front of the bolt carrier is not there on the surplus G3 kits. This one is IA (1980) dated.

Correct on the spacer. The extra length keeps the carrier from getting locked behind the hammer, allowing for full retraction of the charging handle in a semi gun, whereas a semi gun with the G3 kit will require a little care in charging, or a piece of hose over the recoil spring. There could be a little extra value to a collector for the 91 kit as they're less common.

My opinion is keep it since you have basically nothing in it in a sense, and definitely try it out first. It's my favorite accessory for the 91. I love my .22 kit and shoot with it often.

Yeah, I got the impression he was gonna sell it anyway, and I jumped on the deal when he said I could have it all for $2k. I've always wanted this gun when I was growing up. 

He has shifted almost all of his attention to vintage motorcycles and is selling most of his guns to fund that.

Well, you got a sweet deal even if he did make you pay.  lol    IIRC, I paid close to a grand for mine (just the rifle and 1 or 2 mags) back in the 9os.

Yeah, just for a point of reference, my first hk91 purchase was

Rifle, bipod, buffer, carrying handle, claw mount with no scope. fixed stock, 7 steel mags and 800 rounds of W. German 7.62x51 for $1300

This was 1989.

Back then the steel mags were $70 each.

During the ban days I paid $25 each for 5 beat up rattle can painted alloy mags and was glad to have them.

You have a cool dad.  

$45.00 was a lot of money when he bought that rifle.  

Good to see it stay in the family instead of thrown on Gunbroker.

Definitely. 

I put some rounds through it the other day. Back to back against one of my ARs I can definitely see why .308 battle rifles went out of vogue with militaries. It's gonna take some practice to become proficient shooting it off hand. 

Guess I need to stock up on some PMC bronze .308 Win.

That was a very good price back then,  I sold my 1978 fixed stock rifle with no extras for $1875 about that time.  Paid $375 new in 1978 or 79.

You did very well on that deal OP.

The .22LR conversion kit is pretty neat. I have the same civilian market HK conversion kit.

My only gripe about the kit - at least in my case - is that it is not that accurate. Best I could do at 25 meters was 2" groups on paper. I figure the muzzle end of the conversion barrel bounces around a bit inside the 7.62 barrel.

It is a lot of fun to shoot steel targets with the .22 LR kit.

Here is a review I wrote back when I first tested my .22LR kit.

I have a pretty good chunk of change invested in a PTR91 and it's accessories... good job OP.

Mine is less original overall, but shoots the same pills.

Thanks for posting that.  I've tossed the idea back and forth quite a bit with the cheaper G3 kits.

On the .22 kit, have you tried a bit of tape on the muzzle of the insert to tighten it up? How does the rifle shoot with 7.62?

I ask because my .22 kit is supremely accurate. Not 1 hole groups, but certainly better than 2" at 50 yards. Mine is used in an SAR3 that I bought unfired, that has maybe 300 rounds through it, so I wonder how barrel wear contributes to the sub cal. kit accuracy.

Mine shoots fine with Portuguese 7.62 NATO ball.

I will try the tape suggestion next time I have it out - good idea.
