    Default INFO STAMPED ON HK94s

    I am looking for information regarding the stampings on the top of HK94s. From what I have been able to ascertain, they will normally be stamped with either HK94 and a three, four or five digit serial number -or- HK HK94 with a 43-XXXXX serial number. I have read that the font that HK uses is DIN 1451 with a 5mm height. I have found the DIN 1451 font and it definitely matches the stampings on my SP5K, but my letters and numbers are approximately .150” high which is approximately 3.8mm. If anyone has a real German HK94 and a pair of calipers, could you please let me know the height of the stampings on the top of your gun?

    I am also hoping that some of you that have original German HK94s can post some clear pictures of the top of your rifle, specifically showing the proof marks to the right of the serial number. Thanks in advance for any assistance that you may be able to provide!

    Thanks Tony. I have already found lots of pictures of HK94 markings on the internet - they just don’t show a lot of detail. I am trying to confirm the appropriate proof marks that HK was using when they manufactured the 94. The first proof mark is what I’m hung up on. It appears that it is the Bundesadler “Federal Eagle” with a (N) for nitro cellulose below (both rotated 90* counter clockwise). The second marking is the manufacturing date code and third is the Beschussamt Ulm stag horn.

    Can you or anyone else confirm that the first proof mark is the Federal Eagle over (N) rotated 90*?
