Interesting, that SantaFe 41 looks to have green/Malaysian furniture installed on it, guess the original black would have been easy enough to switch out but not for the True collector IMO
lol depends on what you consider "Rare" if less than 400 ever made and only a few made it in to US. The subset of those that made it in are the 3/62's and Early 65/66's with the correct push pin hole location vs the 7/62's, 11/62's the later 66, 73,74's that had the push pin hole location moved/covered/eliminated. Then I would say pretty rare........ then you factor in a lot of those with correct pin hole were converted to Transferable MG's well who knows how rare lol............LOL that's absurd. Not that rare.
Totally agree with caf82313. At a minimum that gun has been re-parked and furniture switched out.Interesting, that SantaFe 41 looks to have green/Malaysian furniture installed on it, guess the original black would have been easy enough to switch out but not for the True collector IMO

Rare Pre-Ban Heckler & Koch/Golden State Arms HK41 Semi-Automatic RifleImported in 1966 by Golden State Arms, one of the first importers of the early HK G3 and HK41 rifles. Hooded post front and 4-position drum rear sights, standard markings and "4/66" date on the left side of the magazine well...www.rockislandauction.com
And I think most of those estimates are lowball even at their high-end. Either they are to lure bidders in or RIA is out of touch this this segment of the market, which would be surprising.
Agreed its too bad it doesnt have the #'s matching plastic stock.............I know an engraver 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣This one sold today and is only 20 serial number guns away from the RIA rifle, better represented, all numbers match except the stock, and a beautiful unmolested patina:

It'll be interesting to see what the RIA rifle sells for.
