    I remember that sign like it was yesterday, still have a bitter sweet taste of that as well.
    $495 seemed like an awful of money for a little piece of metal but I bought one anyway.
    I distinctly remember justifying the price by seeing other people buy them and thought to myself if I have to sell it I’m sure I’ll at least get my money back.
    A little over a year later Vollmer ran an ad that he was paying $900 for them so I sold it.

    The morning coffee on occasion has an extra bitter taste to it sometimes because I wished I had bought a coffee cup full of those damn things.

    I assume you mean the 1974 version. Those were basically HK91s with some minor changes. I've sold a few of them over the last 10 years and they do bring a decent premium over the HK91. I would say between 3K and 3500 depending on the rifle and condition is fair. The 1965/66 version will bring considerably more (7-9K).

    days to plan this out.
