    Default HK41 with Wood Furniture

    This is a weird one, especially the stock. Curios about what y'all make of it.

    The shipping sleeve:



    The label has come off over the years and is no longer complete. It was covering the "X0039" writing:



    Here's what's left of it:



    The shipping label is dated July of 1982 but the rifle is dated 1974:



    Sleeve removed showing styrofoam box and lid:



    Lid removed:

    Judging by the oil marks in the foam, there were originally three magazines.

    The magazine that is included has absolutely no marks to be found:



    It's absolutely identical to a standard aluminum other than the lack of markings.


    Front of manual:



    Rear of manual:



    Left side of rifle:



    Right side:

    As far as I can tell, the rifle is unfired. I did not take it apart nor am I going to but the whole rifle is still covered in storage grease so I hesitate to handle it anymore than is necessary. It appears to have had a carrying handle on it that has been removed.

    Right side of magazine well:



    Handguard:



    I'm unaware of any HK41's being imported with wood furniture at this date but it's in absolutely new condition and it does seem to be original.


    The butt stock is the weirdest thing of all because it has a small step cut into it just in front of the butt plate:





    It too appears to be in absolutely new condition and is covered in a thin layer of storage grease just like the rest of the rifle.


    Sooooo, what is going on here? You guys are smarter than I am.

    With regards to the P7, there are two classes of people.

    1. Those who know it to be the finest pistol ever produced.

    2. Those who have yet to fire one.

    Couple things I notice.

    Lots of wear on the manual
    Scratches paint chips below ejection port or possibly dust specs?
    Some chips? along bottom of mag well, possible dent bend near front left side. Might be a trick of light on finish
    Ejection port buffer has wear on it.


    Look at underside of bolt through mag well, that should give some insight into use. With use there will develop rub marks on underside.
    Also examine carrier and top of bolt face to see date codes if original to rifle. Do they match? What are they?
    Question for Tony, did they have the 3 digit code on the lowers of these matching the rifle?

    If this rifles serial number is not on the box then there is a good chance someone found a HK box on the loose and put it with it to try to increase desireability/sale price. Same might be case for the worn manual.
    That line around the stock looks like the right distance if you were going to trim the end to put a commerical recoil pad on it.

    I would look carefully at it with the question if someone may have refinished it.

    It may be a safe Queen that someone dressed up, it may have been a lightly used shooter that someone dressed up.
    Or it was refinished because had wear and tear to try to get top dollar for an early rifle.

    You really need to pull it down and look through the bolt and carrier markings to try to judge which scenario you have here. There is just enough things here you should be suspicious.

    It is a nice rifle.

    Per your request, my assessment:

    Correct

    1. green HK41 manual
    2. leather sling

    Not correct

    1. shipping container (should be the outer cardboard box with cardboard inserts--- outer cardboard box with styrofoam insert for a 1982 HK91/HK Arlington, as supported by the HK shipping label and mailing label date)

    Unknown

    1. aluminum magazine (correct for 1974, but not marked)
    2. wood furniture (was an option, and similar to the late, optional, HK41 5/66 wood furniture)

    Is there a number (e.g., XXX) stamped on the back plate of the stock?

    Thanks guys; I appreciate the feedback. It's not for sale though. I'm just trying to gather information about it. Tony, there are no numbers that I am aware of on the back plate of the stock. I do not have it in hand but will look the next time I do. Still, I'm all but 100% certain there are no numbers.
