IF Date code HK94A3- bought as unfired off an ARF member (Dalton68- awesome transaction/seller btw) and sure appears to be that way......



Also in the picture is my Kifaru MMR and Marauder that arrived the same day. Felt like a little kid on Christmas day :)

Unfortunately, I purchased it to be a looker . I just can't bring myself to fire such a beautiful example. If ORF ever gets off the ground with their Receiver, I'll probably buy a German parts kit and use that as a shooter. Then again, I'm being deployed for training/Middle East next week so maybe when I get back I'll have a different attitude :)

However, about the SBR- I haven't taken apart the gun yet and was wondering if the barrel is an exchangable (seperate) piece, or if it's part of the receiver. So basically, can you take out the long barrel and pop in a short one or does the original barrel have to be cut down?

Also, I don't think anyone could say turning it into an SBR doesn't make it look alot better. However, what happens when it's time to sell it (and at this point I have no intentions but who knows in the future)? Is it harder to find a buyer for an SBR or is there just a longer wait while paperwork processes. Thanks....

The barrel is press fitted and pinned in place.
A 5-10 ton press is needed to swap out so it is a H&K familiar gunsmith only proposition.

The good (and bad) news is that a flood of 94 police trade ins hit the market, so if you want a shooter, you can pick one up quite cheaply.

What do cops want to use semi auto 94s for when they can get full auto MP-5s?

IIRC, most police standard operating procedures call for semi-auto only.
Whether this is politically correct or sensible is left for others to decide.

Show me the way... Where are these 'cheaper' HK94s that you speak of?

God that is a BEAUTIFUL piece of German engineering!

As are the cops.
Nice gun - make sure it gets shot.
Only weird people don't shoot their guns.

*Edited to add that that's a beautiful '94 man.*



I guess cheap is compared to the $3300 - $3700 most other 94s get... I would bet that this round of police 94s will not last very long...
