I have been looking at several posts regarding 1974 production HK93 rifles. There seems to be some contradictory info out there and I am wondering just what is correct.
1. What is the correct color blueish gray or black? Or are they both correct?
2. Should the barrel have threads or splines and should the muzzle device be welded on?
3. Are the receivers stamped 19/74 or 1974 or some other combo of month and/74?
4. Should the rifle have a slim forearm or wide?
5. Is there a large serial number spread even though only 52 were made?

Attached are a few images of a gun I recently had the chance to handle.

It must be a very very early 93. It is configured exactly like the HK43 which was brought in the same year. Assuming HK just changed the markings when they transitioned to the early 93s I'd point out the 43:
1. Was black, shiny..
2. Had a slimline forearm
3. Date stamp looks correct
4. I can't speak to the serial number spread or the muzzle device.

Welcome to the site!!! :biggrin:
Based upon my current data: :wink:

1. Correct as pictured
2. Probably correct as pictured (what are the barrel markings?)
3. Appears correct (last 2 digits covered--- PM me the full SN)
4. Correct as pictured
5. SN range for 1974 (11 0 001/in Switzerland through 11 0 045); for 19/74 (11 0 114 through 11 0 167)

Thanks guys for the info. I appreciate it. I believed the gun to be correct, but I am no expert and there does seem to be some conflicting or at the very least confusing opinions on the internet. :)

What is it that makes the Bold one so knowledgeable on the HK line? Have you worked there? Are you related to Heckler or Koch? Where did you obtain such knowledge Oh Wise one? :)

Welcome to the site--- I have seen numbers 11 0 001- 11 0 188 (109 highest for "1974" and 114 lowest for 19/74")!!! :biggrin:

Post test: What are the serial #s 46 through 113 the 67 between 45 and 113. And would those be HK43s with HK93 markings PS. I see my confusing question now. question 5 was a specific answer to a specific question. But I am still curious about those 67 rifles as I have an opportunity to purchase one when I leave my current State, everything same as one pictured but maybe flash is not welded. I have no access to loo just recall

11 0 09X will be an HK93, with the "1974" date code on the left receiver!!! :biggrin:
