I just purchased my first HK branded weapon, an HK SL7 with 05 scope mount and 5 mags. If I wanted to put a period correct optic on the rifle what would that be? ZF??? Thanks in advance.




UPDATE! (02 Mar 17)

It's an IE date code rifle, 1984, and the internals are like new. I was able to source a 4x32 Zeiss DIATAL-C, Made in West Germany, to go along with the rifle. I'll have it out on the range soon to dial it in and see what it will do.

Congratulations on a nice package--- the magazines alone and scope mount are quite expensive--- what scope is shown on the manual (?)--- some model of Diavari (Hensoldt or Zeiss) would be consistent!!! :biggrin:

Beautiful rifle! What time period is that from?
I'll have to run the date code to determine it's build date. I believe they stopped manufacture/importing in '84-'85. Someone with more background, or a link to a sticky, may be able to provide more information.

Beautiful package! You might have to take the top hand guard off to see the date code. Is that a B-Square rail in the one baggie and an A.R.M.S. rail in the other? Nice you got a manual with it also. An original can run you 40-$50.

An older Zeiss or Swarovski in a straight 4 or 6 power would be correct. Just be mindful of the rear sight. the scopes eye piece has to clear it. The Leupold 3-9 Compacts fit with no problem.

Yes. Package contained 3 mounting options for the optics. I was very happy to get the 05 scope mount and the extra mags. I'm tracking some only Zeiss, 1" tube, scopes on gunbroker now. The rifle may make an appearance in a deer hunt this fall!

Check your state hunting regs, the 10-rounder mags might be illegal for hunting. You might want to get some extra 3-rounders for that reason. Assuming you miss with first shot, of course!
