Just posting some of my lesser seen stuff as I pull them from the back of the "don't shoot often" safes.

Now just about everyone has seen a HK91, but not too many people have seen them like this. As the old timers will surely recall, this is how they arrived from the factory in those days of freedom prior to 1989.



This is what $400 bought you back in 1982. I remember paying a whopping $800 for my brand new HK91 and HK93 and feeling like I had just been robbed. After all you could get a Colt AR-15 for about $300 in those days.

I remember spending an unheard of $25 for each extra HK91 mag. Cheap by todays standards ($40.00 dealer from HK) but not cheap when compared to $5.00 surplus G3 mags. Oh well.



Got a early Arlington, Va Import sporting an original blue grey finish. Later imports were black.



And early imports with original styrofoam box, test target, manual, sling, etc. are the kind of thing that make HK nerds wet themselves like star wars nerds with a box of unopened series 1 action figures. I even have the HK mailing label on the factory carton.



And I even have the all steel bipod (which I recall being rather hard to get back in those days) which was a hell of a lot better than those cheaper hollow tube ones with the plastic feet that most people got. You know the ones with the feet that are broken off and the owner has tried to superglue them back together like nobody is going to notice.

Anyway for the younger crowd who were probably born in the early 1980s there was a time when you could simply walk into a gunstore and order one of these new, imported from Germany for about a 1/3 more than a Colt AR-15 brand new in the box. If not for the 89 Import Ban HK would probably still make the 90 series and a brand new HK91 would probably cost you about $1,350.00 or so.

So.......you're saying these are better than CAI Cetmes?




Nice! Regret not buying one back in the day.

I regret not buying a 91 or 93 back in 1984/85 when they were $500. But that was big money to me back then as a Army PFC/E-3.
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 10:07:13 PM EDT
Ahhhh....memories. Bought a 91 in 1986, and a 93 in 1988.

Made out great when they sold in '96, but I'm missing them.

Oh well, paid for my daughter's hospital stays with just those two guns profits. Money well spent.

Has that ever been used?

Beautiful firearm.. Darn shame...

I have a NIB one too


Actually I want to sell it but the price on 91's has tanked recently.
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 10:17:19 PM EDT

You make me sick.........

My first experience with black evilness was a 91 that a guy at the range let me shoot, as a high-schooler, back in the mid 80's... I completely fell in love with the thing.


I want a 91 in the worst possible way Unfortunately I'll probably never have one, seeing how life hates me and such.


I'm disgustingly jealous. I admit it. That thing's just pure, unadulterated beauty, to my eyes.

Yes, just not a lot and I'm pretty meticulous about many of my firearms.

Later on I got a second 91 with a registered sear so that became my "shoot the shit out of it" and I kept the first 91 clean.

Keep it. If you sell it you will regret it. Plus you'll be sitting pretty in 20 years.

How true. I was looking at an MP5, REAL MP5 for something like $600 or $700 if I remeber corectly. I also remember when my Company Commander wasn't real happy that I wanted one and made it more than difficult to get. 1984 and I was an E4 and at Campbell. Man, I hated that clown. I'm glad I made his life hell while he was there.

I was 3 in 1986, so no FA for me.

I hate you so much right now.

Yup, for about $900 (HK 94 $550, Registered Sear $150, Cut, crown and sear intalled $200) for a total of $900 + the $200 tax you could have a full auto HK MP5.

And what do I remember? People saying "$900?!? Jesus Christ who would spend that kind of money on something like that?"

I remember seeing the Yugo AK's in 308 for $480 and thinking, not a lot of people going to pay that price.
