New picture of the HK Factory hand stamping requested by a member: http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/3457/forandrew.jpg
- remember guys, the stamping may not be good on MANY of the SR9T's, but stampings don't make MOA's! Always demand internal pic's!
- Ask: $3,599 (HK Claw Mount and Leupold Scope sold separately (see below)) – PS: As of today this is my “best ask.” =) I don’t like pricing things higher than I really want leaving room to 'haggle down.' No games this way :)
- Pay: USPS Money Order’s only please – safe for you, safe for me, by making fraud a Federal offense
- Ship: $49 INSURED to the 48-states – ONLY where legal. If it isn’t legal in your state, PLEASE don’t make an offer!
- FFL: I will ship FROM my FFL to your FFL ONLY
For sale is 1 of my 2 HK SR9T’s. =) It comes like-new in box with all the accessories you see below (except Leupold Mark 4 Scope/HK 30mm Claw Mount w/ 1” inserts – sold separately). I’ve reasoned with myself that this is a “sale of practicality”, as I have 2 rifles and only 2 arms to hold 1 with - but it still hurts just the same. With box and accessories this is a great buy for HK collectors and HK enthusiast alike! A very "young"- in barrel life - gun as well. :)
Accessories also for sale:
- 30mm HK Claw Mount with 1” inserts: $229.00 (PS: Will fit all 90 series rifles and retain zero!)
- Leupold Mark 4 LR/T: $699.00 (This is my personal scope and is like-new (only exactly 40 rounds fired), I have the box and ALL accessories - just not pictured)
- Ship: For any of the accessories bought with the rifle, no additional shipping charges are necessary! If bought separately, $12 shipping (insured) per item.
1 previous owner who sold it to me NIB. I did all the usual checks before taking ownership and do believe it was NIB. The seller was a dealer known well respected in the GlockTalk forums from AZ with a positive history and his own storefront! After I bought this I had the opportunity to buy my uncles SR9T which I thought he would never sell, so I did. And then I had two. I NEVER thought my uncle would sell his and when he did it had sentimental value to me and him. I originally thought I would keep both but it doesn’t seem practical now. So that’s where I’m left with two rifles and two arms!
I took it to the range once and shot exactly 40 rounds. That’s pretty low for a rifle of its age. The bore would pass for “NEW” but I am not that kind of guy. =) In the perspective of the barrels lifespan, it is basically like new.
In full disclosure I used a claw mount so it DOES have “scope marks” where the mount clamps to the receiver. That is what it is. The HK Claw Mount is the only mount I know and trust 100% to keep zero – which I thought far outweighs the negatives of marring the finish on the hidden recesses where the mount clamps. Function over aesthetics IMHO but I know some would like to know this.
There’s a lot we don’t know about SR9T’s. Unfortunately HK has not published anything to clear things up, so we are left to trust our 3rd party sources. There are A LOT of “weekend” HK authenticaters, and unfortunately a lot their information is from 2nd hand internet post which could be by random, faceless, non-HK officials. I speak from experience, myself being one of them on the weekend as well. :) I think I know how to spot an authentic HK, but then when I really think about it, I only know what I read and sometimes I don’t even know the reliability of where I read it from.
The yin and the yang is good, and we need these “weekend” authenticaters to stop the predators that would pray on unsuspecting HK enthusiast, but we also need to be mindful to question our sources the same way we question our sellers. The newest PSG1 “heads up” thread is a good example – where someone said buyer beware with the fullest intention to look out for other HK’ers since the PSG1 had a D prefixed serial number, when it turns out there were PSG1’s with D prefixed serial numbers – so in that case, buyer NOT beware. I am surely not busting on that person who yelled watch out, but I am just saying that the same way we are overly skeptical about our sellers is the same way we should be overskepticle about our reasons for being skeptical.
Anyway’s to the point I have two SR9T’s. Sourced from two different reliable sellers. We know HK HAND stamped them, and we know the stamp’s are crooked. This stamp looks exactly like my 2nd SR9T’s hand-stamp. One was from my uncle, and the other was a NIB SR9T I bought from Jeff of GlockTalk fame in AZ. The serial range also falls into the serial range that HK Pro forumers think indicates authentic SR9T’s – although regular SR9’s were made in this range as well. Anyway’s I believe both my SR9T’s to be 100% authentic. And ultimately what it comes down to is trusting your seller (see below) AND your own information.
I am a SELLER with over 10+ POSITIVE’s in high-value ($2,000+) transactions on HK-Pro.com and 20+ POSITIVE’S on GunBroker. I like to think I’m ‘good-to-go’ and hope to work with people who are gtg as well, with their own POSITIVE history in buying/selling of the firearms we all love. =) I reserve the right not to sell to anyone who does not display the same courtesy for others as I try to.
I try to take as many high-resolution pictures as possible to represent my listings as best as I can. I do not want to deal with buyer’s remorse anymore than you do, I want my buyers to be HAPPY =) So if you have any special picture request please ask BEFORE making an offer! But PLEASE no picture request ‘tire kicking!’
This item IS listed FS on multiple sites. I reserve the right to end the listing early if it sells somewhere else first - assuming no deal is already made. 1st come, 1st served.
Thanks everyone! For those of you who can swing it and adore HK’s – especially rare one’s, you won’t be disappointed!
