    I have an HK94 with a four digital serial number. Is there any chance they could match, aside from the date code?

    I was thinking more of legality--- no specifics!!!
    Also, the 1961 G3's that I have seen have been 6-digit SN's.

    First comment, their pictures suck!!!! Never photograph on a white background with a flash. You wind up with dark pics.

    I have been collecting to assemble an early 1961 G3 clone. The wood furniture, is early right Era, the forearm lacks the later low spot for the cocking lever so that would indicate early even for the wood. The backplate is the later backplate, the earlier backplates followed the CETME profile. The lower has the more rounded trigger gaurd of the early lowers. I cannot make out the flash hider to see if its the early style or not because of the crappy pics.. The early retaining spring on the fkash hiders extends along the side of it parrallel to the bore instead of wrapping partly around the circumference. I might post photos of examples in a few but the parts look correct early and if the backplate number stamp matches the rest of the major parts that is a good sign.Hk g3 9/61-img_1596_1499394867282.jpg

    First pic is one I snagged off the board of a 1961G3 reciever of a rifle that the cocking tube was upgraded, So same year HK for comparison although taking a closer look this seems funny. Engraving/stamping doesnt look right.

    This pic shows 3 different backplates, top is CETME, Middle is early HK following the CETME profile with subtle assembly differences and made to take the HK buffer set up.
    BOTTOM is a later HK backplate that the style came into use maybe in 1961 but definitely by 1962.

    Comparing the early lower to the later style. You can see the more rounded shape of the trigger gaurd compared to the more angular late style

    Comparing early to later style flash hiders. The early is the lower one with the retainer spring running parrallel to the bore. The upper the spring wraps partly around the circumference.
