My local dealer gave me this HK brochure for the G3. He knows I love HK and thought I'd like to have it. He found it in his back room while cleaning out. Any info on it would be great. There is also a torn out page in the back that shows the price of the accessories for the HK91.

Get this: Oberndorf G3 basic with one mag--$225.00
Oberndorf G3 deluxe with one mag and wood stocks--$245.000
Retractable stock (early model) $49.95
Scope and mount (availability, Feb.1966--TBA


I can't believe it. Let me know what you guys think?

I have never seen any of those before but they must be from the 60,s & 70,s era & are probably very collectible. Thanks for sharing the photos.

WOW!
its a early 1960's, notice the A3 stock(last page), no tapered cocking tube, pre-production claw mount(last page), as well the 1st pic I think has the early mag well, which would have been 61-2? and not production

this is VERY early, looks like a date on the 4th scan(bottom of page). Or look at the back for a date/code


looks like enlish, then french and something else

Yep, I missed it. The copyright is 1961. The large fold open picture of the rifle says: G3 HK 2096 and then 6/60. I still can't get over the prices for the guns and accessories. Leather sling was 3.95 and so was the magazine loader. lightweight mags were 9.95. Hope you like!

Very cool but not very marketable! ;)

Would like to add to my collection of HK memorabilia if not transfered, traded or sold. :D

I like this line "Scope and mount (availability, Feb.1966--TBA" ... that's when I got out of high school ... and started looking into college and the military ... a great year 1966 !!! Incidentally, the "new" stamped steel process for forming the HK receiver lowers were not regarded favorably (as a quality piece) by most firearms nuts at the time.

the scope in the pre-production claw mount is a model 59 Hensoldt, this mount was made in march 1961(if I remember from my reading last night)

Thanks for the treat - makes you wonder about the marketing of that rifle. It does seem strange for me to think you'd have that type of rifle in the land of polar bears. I guess I've never thought of HK as that type of rifle. It would be cool to have a section on the main page of historic HK marketing materials...
Has anyone ever made such a compilation?
