Hellow Im new to this forum. I was interested in the hk94. Can the barrel be shortened for law enforcement use? Has anyone ever tried one of these?

Search around the forum using the search function. And google "SBR".

The barrel can be shortened for anybody's use (except in a few crappy states).

#1... Welcome to the forums!

#2... You can shorten the barrel of almost any rifle to a length of less than 16" (asumming your state laws allows you to own a "short barreled rifle") by filling out an ATF Form-1.

You stated for LE use... the same laws apply to LE officers unless it's use is specifically for your agency, at which point your agency will purchase and own the rifle and will have to fill out other forms (which I am not certain of which ones exactly).

Not sure, do you type fast, or are you just a hunt 'n' pecker?

Typing - 7th grade in 1981 - who knew how valuable it would turn out to be?

thanks for the replies. Has anyone ever shot one of ties. Also where can you buy them. I live in California and the gun
laws suck. I'm not sure if I will even buy it, but I'm thinking about it.

I like mine alot, I am in the middle of having the SBr done right now. You can buy them all over on the net try gunbroker.com if all else fails. Kommiefornia though I don't know about them they have some real bad gun laws. I have no idea if you can get one or not unless you find a pre-ban.

I think the situation is even more dire. Grab a sandwich and read up:

Pay special attention to Article 2, 12280(b)(1) - it looks like you must prove to have been the owner before the Roberti-Roos ban went into effect in 1989 or 1990. Another good place for information is www.calguns.net.

You can still get one, but I think it also has to have a magazine that holds no more than 10 rounds, and can only be removable with the use of a tool (which are available on the intenet).

You might want to go to Toys R Us ang buy a bunch of hula hoops to practice on, you'll be needing to jump through a bunch of them.

For LE use have the department buy it or provide a letter to let you get a real MP5. Might as well have the full-auto option if you're only throwing 9mm around.

I love my HK94, and I enjoy the MP5s at the office, but since we only have the choice of MP5 or a 12 gauge, I'll take the 12 gauge with slugs when we go door kicking. YMMV.

If you are in Kalifornia, you can not buy an HK94 as it is specifically named in the original Roberti-Roos ban list, regardless if you remove features. If you are LE, I am not totally sure about the rules for getting one, but I know there are exemptions, but you need to get letters from you department, and there are restrictions on keeping at after you leave, especially if you SBR it. No SBRs in California for civis.
