First timer to HK pro, Thank you!

I purchased an HK53 10+ years ago as an SBR that was done by Fleming and S/H arms. Currently I am in the process of trying to selling the gun but do not know much about it. On other sales adds they talk about the flash hider, fore grip, bolt etc. The gun carries a semi trigger pack but have used a full auto pack in it when purchased to make sure it ran smoothly. I honestly don’t know what I have other than it is a HK. Attached are a few pictures and any comment/knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Michael

On cursory exam of your pictures, what you have is a Pro Tech conversion of what appears to be an HK German Factory HK93 converted to HK53, complete with remarking of the mag well. The 4-prong flash hider is correct to the 53, along with the longer handguard to cover the trunnion area. Some dolt installed an HK Port Buffer, however, which will have put immutable scratch marks into the upper receiver - which will be made worse through attempts at removal, so I'd leave it alone. Apart from that, the gun is technically an HK53 SBR but you would know the true designation from the ATFE Form 4.

I could tell you more with pictures of the bolt carrier internals, as some conversions used cut down HK93 bolt carriers, and would also signal whether a factory full auto bolt carrier was used or not. Use of correct German parts bumps up the value a bit. Also, a view under the handguards of the barrel markings and under the flash hider would reveal whether it's a cut down HK93 barrel or a German HK53 barrel, or an aftermarket clone barrel, all of which affect value, some dramatically.

Based on what you show above, I'd put the value at roughly $4,000 to sell it now, $4,500 to wait awhile, and $5,000 above market. With German Factory HK conversion parts, a few mags, and a true 53 barrel, you're closer to that above market number. The port buffer is a disappointment to a buyer unless they want it as a sear host shooter to burn through ammo, but Vector clones are good for that at less than half the price of a German gun.

I will take some pictures tomorrow and send as the above described. What is a port buffer please? I will review the paper work and see what it says.
Thank you,

Looks like a factory F/A bolt from here and also the carrier specific for the HK53. Good luck with the sale,
