Was talking to one of the guys and he was looking for parts for his NIB HK91 that he has been going to shoot for a half dozen years ... or maybe a dozen years. When he found out that I might be selling one of my HK91s (more later) and he commented that he was interested but that had seen a lot of HK91s for sale for a few hundred, possible $400. When I asked if they were German HK's and not clones, he assured me that they were, but had not seen them so they might be well used. Also comment that some of the guys still wanted too high a price for their NIB HK91s, of nearly two grand. I offered to help him sell his NIB German HK91 rifle and then he could get one of my minty HK91s for his shooter, but he is primary interest is in picking up the HK91 and accessories that I have at the new current prices, which are similar to the 1980's (except with lower cost mags ;-)

Thus my question, are minty German HK91's really down to several hundred for selling price and are NIB in the box HK91s with all accessories really selling for double that or about the cost of a new Colt AR15? Or ....

Background. Always was going to setup one of the HK91s as a sear host, after got around to scoping and seeing which one is the most accurate. Picked up the heavy buffer, HK21 stock and was thinking of getting one of the 50 round drums. However, everything has gone slowly due to medical issues (hopefully now corrected) and never got the project finished. Over the last year have been playing with one of Mike's MM23eKs and this last weekend at least got to try a 308 kit in one of the full size MM23e/MM21e's. After shooting several HK21 clones over the years and finding all of them tended to beat the shooter and gun badly, was not expecting much, however, the friends MM21e (ok it is marked MM23e but will call it a 21e when the 308 kit is in ;-) was nice surprise and the MM21e is a great gun to shoot! I actually liked shooting it as well or better than the K that day (we were shooting steel at 250 yards and with six belt guns, including two water cooled so at times was hard to sort out non tracer 223 and was too dry for tracer). Thus I am thinking that might retire the HK91 sear host project and get a 308 kit for the K (of course the next decision is K length or full length barrel in 308, were of course both is the best choice ;-).

As always with out photos it never happened ... HK21e is in the background.

Not around here, I'm in SW Ohio. I saw a nice but no where near pristine one sell for $2K a month or so back at a gun show.

Thanks, not sure if he is confusing clones with German HKs or more likely trying to low ball me ... have noticed a few former friends do that when every they think you might be selling something, funny thing is their guns are always worth a premium over retail for some reason or another, like being a "straight shooter with no drop, defies the law of gravity ;-).

Unless he is referring to the C91/H91/FA91--- NO!!! :biggrin:
NIB w/all "HK91" ($3,250.00-$4,250.00), depending upon how fast you want to move OR waiting for the right collector at the right time. :wink:

Then I am sure he is wrong. NIB German 91's go for well over $2K.
I think he was trying to get one for $350 plus I toss in the port buffer, mags, scope, stock and maybe the PSG1 trigger pack for a couple hundred extra ....
One of the local stores purchased a WWII papered transferable Thompson for $1200 from a guy and are proud of it ...

Recently? Wow... pity the former owners that just got clipped. I wouldn't mind getting a GOOD price from a seller, but taking obvious advantage of an uninformed (and most likely elderly) seller just isn't cool. And they probably needed the money, causing the sale in the first place.

People know I recently bought a 51 with married sear for $5500, but it was from a friend and he knew what the guns were going for. You have to remember, we both bought these guns way back in the day and even at $5500, he more than doubled his original money. Besides... this is the guy I GAVE a sear to as a present several years ago.
