the TC(a true TC) is pretty rare, only made for around 1 year(94 or 95 I think)

there is also the SR9 T, which is the same as the TC but uses a MSG90 stock.

prices for a T start at 3k, TC...4K+

here is my T but it has a PSG1 stock(like the TC) and wide forend, both of these the orignaly owner claims were on the gun when it was bought new, true or not i dunno

You don't necessarily see a lot of TC's, at least I see more T's. Only difference is the TC has the PSG-1 buttstock while the T has the MSG90 buttstock. Forearm looks to be a fiberglas type deal, in addition to my original forearm, I bought a backup in case the original gets messed up. Really the original forearm is all but worthless and is a better setup with the 91 series wide forearm.

Basically these are just SR9's with the PSG-1 lower & trigger groups and one of the two different types of buttstocks.

As far as how the rifle shoots, it's better than I am right now. Maybe at some point I will be able to get its maximum potential out, but that's a ways down the road.

As Landpimp says, a true TC is rare, I was told by HK there were a total of 125 made. It's possible that only 100 of those were marked "TC". Mine is NIB. :D

You're one lucky guy! I doubt i will find one of those here in the philippines.. All they have here is the MSG, which is way over priced.

If you can get a hold of an MSG90, you really don't want a SR9TC.

If you still want a SR9T/C and assuming you don't need to dance through the hoops that is the US law (given your location), you can buy an SR9 for about $1,700 and just buy the furniture you want. It'll be significantly less than trying to buy an SR9 or SR9TC.

I'm not sure.

SR9 was HK's sporting type version of the 91 gun as modified for the US post-ban market. You see them pop up on gunbroker.com or gunsamerica.com every so often. They typically retail for less than a 91 of comparable quality. As far as I can tell, they don't demand a high price since you couldn't/can't change the furniture out without running into issues with the ban laws. Since you are in the PI you might not have to worry about any of this.

You can't but a real MSG90. They were only sold to military and LE because they came with a push pin lower (even though it was semi auto). so ATF considered it a machine gun. It kind of made sense because you can just slap a stock (non modified) push pin lower on a MSG90 and it will run in full auto.

But if I was to buy a hk 91 and put the Psg-1 trigger group and stock on it, it would be alright?

He is in the Phillipines, I'm guessing the same rules don't apply down there.

I personally am not all that familiar with the rules on parts counts, but someone else here can definitely answer your question.

Yep, you can do anything you want to a 91. Now if you have a 911 or plain-jane SR9, you are limited to the confines of 922r if you want to start adding "evil" features I think, but there sure are a lot of people that put bipods onto the SR9 series, and PSG1 trigger packs on the plain-jane SR9s. I can't imagine anyone ever caring if you put a bipod on an SR9, but if you're the nervous type, you might not want to.
