Guys,

I really wasn't in the market for a HK93 but I walked into a local shop today and they have a nice looking (minimal wear anywhere) real deal HK93 for $1300. I had them put it on hold. So, now I have until noon tomorrow to decide. Is this a good deal? Anything odd/specific to look for? Any thoughts? Thanks!

I cannot believe you didn't walk out with it before someone came to their senses Go get it before someone changes the price

Oh yea, where is this gun

If it's a real HK93 then that's a steel of a deal. Just check it for wear in terms of dents and scratches. Make sure it hand cycles smoothly. Charge it once to cock the hammer and leave it that way, then charge it a few more times so as to see how smoothly the BCG travels through the receiver without having to cock the hammer. If the finish is black, it's probably been re-finished, which might be fine. If it's a very dark gray color of paint, that's original. Take out the bolt group and check it for wear on the sides where it rides on the receiver rails. Look at the hammer for wear on the face. If you have feeler gauges, check the bolt gap.

The regular price range for an HK93 is $1800-$2300, with the lower end being a well used shooter. Maybe a little higher for an unfired unit.

Somewhere in VA...LET'S GO!

For that price I can't see how that could be an original HK weapon but rather a parts kit and an unknown receiver...unless someone doesn't know what they have...hopefully not for the OP's sake.

Okay, now you guys got me wondering if its too good to be true. It was black...not dark grey.

Probably a Vector. Most gun shops carry grossly overpriced HK clones.

If it's a genuine HK93, that is indeed a smoking price.

Listen to Mr. Retro, he gave valuable pointers.

Get some pics for us!

Guys,

Thanks for all the replies. I got it! Upon further review, it is in fact a dark grey genuine HK. I tore it apart in the store and everything looks immaculate. I do not have feeler gauges but assume it is okay there too. It hand cycles rounds just fine. Bore looks great. Everything seems smooth. If photobucket was working at the moment I'd post some pics.....will do later. No sales tax in MT so $1300 OTD!!!!

Man, the wife was excited to see me come home with another gun

Looks outstanding. If it will make your wife feel any better, tell her I'll give you $1800 for it.

It's beautiful. I'd estimate its value over $2000 easily.

I hate you. You stole that, I've been looking for one for some time now.

Looks like someone didn't know exactly what they had.

Glad I was WRONG about it being a parts gun.

"SCORE!" as O21 said.

Nice...score!

Thanks again guys.

When I saw it I thought it seemed low but needed to check. I mean, how many genuine HK long guns can you find these days at this kind of price (well, maybe a USC). It was a consignment deal and I guess the seller needed some fast cash. However, I don't think the FFL even realized how low it was. I'm not going to sell it (thanks for the offers though). However, now I'm not going to be able to afford the Beretta Xterma2 12ga that I went in to buy either. Such is life.

Cheers! The first round is on me

Nice, get a Tach Latch II to make removal of mags.
Link Posted: 10/2/2010 3:28:12 PM EDT
good lord, I wonder what the owner of the store bought that HK 91 for?
Outstanding score and you have just given the rest of us crackheads a reason to go to every gun store on the planet. Kind of like going to garage sales.

I paid $2000 for mine over six years ago.


Great find.

Amazing deal. If you paid 1300.00, I can only imagine what the poor sap that walked that rifle into the shop was given.....

I can make you cry...

I had bought an HK43 for $600 arond 1989. Fast forward to the AWB, and Cali had implemenetd their ban with an enumerated list (specific models). This list did not include the HK 43 (early variant of the HK93), and someone in Cali offered me an insane amount of money for the HK43, which was still legal under their ban. With the money I got from that deal, I replaced it with another HK93 with A2 and A3 stocks, a P7M10, and hade a few hundred left over in change.

So, looking at it from a pure perspective of money out of pocket, I got an HK93A3 and P7M10 for about $300.


ETA: To the OP, nice job on getting the HK93. You can get the Xtrema another time, and you've already got ~ $700 in equity in your new rifle.

And I thought a Vector listed locally with 12 steel HK mags for $1500 was a decent deal...

YOU STOLE IT!!!!!!! SOMEONE REPORT THIS MAN TO THE POLICE!!!!!!!


lets see my first one was near mint and I paid $1800.00 for it like 8 yrs ago. I sold it about 3 yrs ago and then missed it so much i bought another one
only paid about $2350.00 for that one. on gunbroker.com..(also near mint)...

you just made yourself an easy grand

you should visit that gun shop on a daily basis: the owner must not have a clue.
Nobody sells 93's for that price not even the beat up ones

you should show your wife this thread it might make her feel a little better about your transaction
