Actually, the 91 per se was not imported until 1975 and that was SACO, HK Arlington was the importer as stated 76 on.

The 41 was imported in 1966 by Golden State Arms and in 1974 by SACO. The 1974 version (my main 308 rifle..) was very similar to the later 91. The 41 was available in Germany at the time in limited numbers.

Prior to the 1966 41, Golden State brought in some semi auto G3s, marked as such.

Unless you have a 41 or original G3, there wont be a major difference in value as far as importers. Some people like the later guns and some like the earlier SACO guns. The later 41s do bring a premium over the 91s but its not huge. The 1966 41 and the earlier G3 are spendy, Ive seen them for 10K +

are you sure SACO didn't import the 91/93 longer than 75? I would sware I have seen SACO 91 and 93's that were latter 75. I kinda thought HK INC started importing pistols in 76, but the riffles were a few years latter, ,maybe 77?

but very well could be wrong.....only one cup of coffee so far.
