Hi guys. I recently saw a SR9TC in a local shop. It looks in really good shape. It comes with 5 mags and the scope mount (no scope). It is also wearing a standard wide forearm with a bipod. The asking prince is $3000.00. Is this too much? The shop owner told me that they were only made in 1993. Is this true and are they really that rare? Thanks in advance.

If it's a true TC, then it's a good price.

The T and TC where SR9's that were factory after stamped, so you need to look close on the receiver to make sure it not just an aftermarket TC (end user converted off a base sr9 without all correct parts/factory markings).

Thanks Dano353, but I am not sure what you mean by "after stamped". Thanks again.

IIRC, an "after stamp" is when the letters were added by HK after importation.

Some of the stampings look pretty poor also, If it is stamped TC as far as I know only about 125 of them were.

Thanks for the help. I have the wife's official OK to get it if I REALLY want. I just have to talk myself into it now. I have never paid that much for a rifle before. I know it's nothing compared to some Class 3 stuff, but I still have to think about it. Thanks again.

P.S. Now that I think of it, the TC looked kinda "off" and were not an exact match to the SR9. Like it was added "after".

I wanted to add that $3000 for it if it is in excellent shape is a good deal.
I paid $3800 for mine NIB

Since this rifle comes without the scope, which would be the "correct" scope for it?

HK used the Hensoldt scope on the PSG1 and the MSG90.
I wouldn't worry to much about what kind to use , use what ever type you like.
The supersniper scope would fit the bill and it's $400.

You must have read my mind. I have 2 SS scopes on other rifles and will probably buy a third if a get this rifle.

Well,I bought it. I talked the guy into taking 5% off and throwing in a free oversized plastic case for it. So with tax, it got it for $3049.50 out the door. I ordered a 16x SS scope for it last night. The ser. # is in the 2800 range. I'll post some pics after I have the scope installed and after I get some groups on paper. Is there a manual specific to this rifle that I can buy somewhere? I already have a couple of HK91 manuals, but is there one for the SR9TC?

I also have a PTR91 KP and a stainless receivered Century G3. Both are great and shoot great. I bought this one because I didnt have an HK in my small collection and it is not like any of the other guns. Plus it has all the cool PSG-1 features I have always craved like that great trigger. Most importantly, my wife said it was OK. Thanks for all the help. I cant wait for my scope to arrive!

Congrats on the purchase, I hate to say it but I have never shot mine .
I kept it NIB as a safe queen They do make a manual but it is the SR9 one.
As far as I know they have never made one just for the TC.
I know one other person that has one also stamped TC.
There are only 125 of them ever stamped that left HK as a TC

I guess we're members of a club with at the most 125 members. How many 5 round mags did yours come with? Mine came with 1 and 4 20 rounders. I would like to find at least one more 5 round mag. Would you mind posting a list of everything that came with yours in the box? I'm am curious as to how they came NIB from HK. Thanks again for all the help.

One SR9 owners manual
1 - 5 round mag
and 1 cheap sling, they came pretty bare bones, no cleaning kit or anything like that.

The HK factory 5 rounders are sometimes hard to come by. I have seen them sell for as much as $50 or $60. Sometmes on HK PRO boards you might find one ,but not often.
Cals Sporting Armory had someFactory HK ones for $50 but they always seem to be out.
If you're not a member on the HKPRO website give it a look. Alot of good info and good people

Thanks for the info and I'll give HKPRO a try.

I was thinking about a similar purpose, but I wanted a true free float, e.g. MSG/PSG forearm, not the gimpy one it comes with that MAAAAAAY be free float.

No specific manual.

I bought my SR9T NIB, it's since been converted to TC. Mine came with an SR9 manual.

That's a great price, I think I spent about 2400 for mine. Over ten years ago, of course.

Thanks for the help guys. I just ordered one of those 5 round mags. I am also going to ask the gun store if they will contact the original owner for me and ask if he has any of the original paperwork, manual or even the box. Thanks again.

The box mine came in was so trashed I tossed it.

Also, try CETME 5 rounders, I got a bunch ofr like $5 each from TAPCO or somebody.

I run real HK 20s, but I'm not paying 50 for a 5 rounder.

They run flawlessly, but they are UGLY.
