    Default HK91 rip-off?

    I just purchased a HK91 and upon further research I am starting to worry I purchased a franken gun? The fixed stock is not factory and now while checking the bolt, I don't see it stamped with the IA code that the receiver is. Instead it is stamped P-12/03... The actual bolt carrier assembly or housing is stamped HK 1/79 and the barrel is marked IALF. Do any of these parts seem correct for a IA stamped HK91 with A022 serial prefix?

    stan5050,

    Welcome to the Red & Black road. It's a journey that will empty your wallet on occasion, but you end up with a nice collection of HK firearms.

    Again, welcome to the HK ENABLERS forum.

    Where did this HK91 come from, and by that I mean from an individual or a company?

    Not sure what you have, but there are a lot more knowledgeable people on this forum that will speak up. Give them until the end of the day and then see what they say. Their knowledge will surprise you.

    I own an HK91 IB and it's all correct as it were. But I did this careful search six/eight years ago. It wasn't any easier then and I just rolled the dice and got lucky. You might be surprised, but you can find MOST of the needed parts with correct date codes, but it will cost you.

    Besides, you have not told us why you purchased this. Safe Queen? Every day range rifle? Lots of things go into this equation.

    From a individual, a lady recently lost her husband and was selling his collection. This was one of the rifles that I purchased from the estate and truth be told I should have done more research prior to purchasing. I just felt weird negotiating with her due to the circumstances so I bought pretty much on the face value of what I assumed it was.

    There is your first and fatal error. You should have explained that you wanted to have the gun inspected so she knew what she had... Now did you buy the gun at a deep discount for what an HK91 would normally sell for in your market??

    Welcome to the site!!!
    For an IA in the A022XXX range, the following should be proper:

    - bolt carrier (HJ, with possibly “WBA” or “WHA” marked on rear, and notched semi-automatic)
    - bolt head (HJ)
    - barrel (IA LF sounds correct)
    - stock (HJ)
    - forearm (?)
    - charging handle/plastic (HJ)
    - aluminum dust cap
    - blue-gray finish
    - "SF" trigger pack housing

    Can you PM me the full serial number for the Firearms Reference Data?

    bolt carrier has WGA marked on the rear
    stock is non factory and not marked
    forearm is marked 1 IA
    charging handle is plastic and is stamped 4 HJ
    what is the dust cap?
    i would say blue gray is accurate
    SF trigger pack, are there any markings?

    I am not allowed to PM yet

    Your Bolt is most likely of Pakistan Ordnance Factory origin like this:
