Years ago when HKs were available, I never even saw a HK 94 for sale as they were scarce at least in my part of the state. A collector provided me this HK 94 today. Just cleaned it, and the condition is excellent and not shot much, it seems. It also has the A2 stock.

In another picture, you see it beside the SP89 that I obtained from him several weeks ago. I had a SP89 HK91 and HK93 and am glad to own a German design that is ageless and classic again!

Keeping these and enjoying target shooting.

Pictures follow.

One question to those here who know more than me (almost everyone!): The 94 has a date code of II, which should be 1988.

The owner replaced the hand guard with the surefire.

What is the correct original hand guard? Is it the thin style hand guard at that time, or had it changed to the wider one?

I bought a HK 94 in the late 80s and it had the wide handguard.

Is that the original factory barrel shroud? I have one on mine and it's the exact length of the exposed barrel. Yours is pushed forward by the surefire light. How does it look on the muzzle end?

I bought one brand new in 1988 and it came with both the wide and the narrow handguards, 3 30 rd curved mags, sling and manual. I believe it was a bit over $900.

Yes both are Tac Latch releases as he had the packages still. They work well but I never had one of this kind so am getting used to these.

I am going to keep the 94 original length but may SBR the SP89 so I can put a choate folder on it. I want to keep both original. Years ago my class 2 friend who I refinished for converted my first SP89 to a MP5K-PDW w a transferable sear - and Gemtech suppressor topping it off -- but this SP89 will remain a semi auto gun. It seem to me originals are really neat. Plus transferable HK sears are so much more expensive than in days ago!

I have an IK Hk94 and IK SP89. Both are being SBR'd. I didn't go with a lugged barrel on my SP89 only because it wasn't original for that year. I've thought about adding a sear to the collection as well but can't justify the price tag for the few times I'd use it. So mine will just stay as semi auto.

Just shot the 94 after cleaning last night-- what a joy as there is almost no felt recoil due to its pleasant weight. It is much different compared to the SP89 in that respect. When I stand back and compare the weight, extended length and A3 stock, over the SP89, I appreciate it. With a SBR, one can add a choate right side stock folder to the SP89 of course, but if you get a chance theHK94 is a definite winner.

Here's the company that makes the HK 94 barrel shrouds. You need the full length with forward grip but it also comes with a set screw.

Do you have one of these? I have seen the web site and picture there, but I'm looking for a little more personal insight from someone who owns or has handled one.

I am considering one for a USC/UMP conversion and would very much appreciate photos and comments.
