    Default HK91 Barrel Markings

    Hi everyone. As a long time fan and owner of HKs, I'm just now getting into the weeds with the many details about our fine weapons thanks in large part to this forum.

    So, I was wondering if there are any resources out there for barrel markings; what should be there, what should not be there, etc. I'm pretty darn sure my barrel is original as I've had the weapon a LONG time, but I did not buy it new.

    Thanks in advance for the FNG help :)

    edit: I forgot to mention, my rifle is an IB (1981) date code.

    If it's a real HK receiver, there's a 99.9% chance it's a real HK barrel. Barrel replacement on an HK is an extremely time-consuming ordeal (i.e. expensive), and the barrel itself probably costs less than the labor to replace it.

    Anywyas, from the HKPro home page, world of hk, here's info on the symbols on HKs:

    You may also see a tiny sort of circular or diamond shaped stamp, it's the Nitro Eagle. Many times there is a "js" on the base of the barrel as well.

    Thanks for the link AV...
    There is no doubt it is a real HK, I was just wondering if the barrel had been changed before I got it, and how to decipher the markings.
    Thanks again!
