I picked this up in a pawn shop on monday

Its my first HK firearm, and i've pretty much fallen in love with it

Its an HK 41, built in 74, looks like it hasn't been shot very much

I've seen this over on arfcom. Welcome to the boards! I wish the pawn shops around here had stuff like that. Good price too!

Sweet. That thing is in great shape! How's she shoot? Funny how the forearm looks kinda blue in the second shot. Welcome to the boards.

How many non-sequeters is that?

Very nice, looks all correct, right lower etc. These originally came with the standard brown leather sling. You bought that gun really right, I would never get rid of my 41.

Haven't gotten a chance to shoot her yet :(

I'm hoping to get out tomorrow or friday, I'll make sure to post a range report once I take care of that

That is one of the main reasons I went and bought it, havent seen any others for sale anywhere on-line
And I don't think you ever will... at least not one that will be for sale for very long. DEFINITELY a collector's peice, IMO.

It almost makes me not want to shoot the thing
You know, I wanted to say that, but who am I to tell you what to do with our own gun? lol. Personally, I'd shoot a few rounds through it just so I can say I shot it, but I defintely wouldn't make it a daily "shooter".

I just got a great deal on an "IC" date code HK91. While they're still in fairly abundant circulation, they're becomming hard harder to find, espcially since a lot of people are converting them to HK51's now-a-days. I'll shoot it, but it won't be "shooter" by no means.

There was a thread about conversions. The 91 - 51 conversion is one I will not do, at least not on a German receiver. Sure, the big bang and flash is fun, but I want to actually be able to hit something.

LOL... yeah, me either... I've seen vids of those things being shot... I want to keep my arm hair too!

There's another post of a guy who got a line on a 1966 HK41... original owner, alleged less than 20-rnd through it... he got it for $3K. Now THAT's insane!

Not that I have any intention of ruining this rifle, but what is this conversion you speak of?

I'm curious

Excellent deal on an excellent rifle!!!
What a first HK purchase!
Personally, I would clean and oil really good and put up. Buy a shooter or clone if you must throw brass!

It a conversion firearm developed by U.S. gunsmiths... essentially, you take an HK91 and convert it into a .308 caliber MP5.... yes, literally. Shorten the barrel and put MP5 furniture on it... a .308 sub-machine gun. It's common to chop-up a genuine HK91 becuase the final HK51, if done correctly, is actually (for now) worth more than the sum of the 91 plus the converions cost.

Similarly, for your reference, same hold trues for the HK93... converts to an HK53... 5.56 sub-machine gun.
