An HK911 wandered home with me the other day, which the former owner had had converted to "HK91" specifications long ago.

Taking it apart found a couple of the flash hider notches removed during removing the barrel extension and some residue with staining and pitting of the bolt ;-(. Rifle shoots fine, no corrosion observed on the trunnion or bore and the flash hider comes on and off nicely with normal "clicks". Looks like will use as a sear host to go with the XS drum a friend loaned me or part it out and make the receiver into a G3K.

JTinIn, do you remember this thead?
http://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk-long-gun-talk/162110-wtk-sale-price-trade-value-h-k-911-nib.html

I did sell this rifle. I sold it for my asking price of $2300. When I got the rifle it had some very minor
storage marks, it lived in a box for 20+ yrs. but very nice. It was sold to someone in CA. and their happy
with the purchase.
Could I have sold it for more? Maybe but I was not out to rape anyone, in the end everyone walked away happy!
Hope this helped, and im still lurking here learning what I can.
Cheers Rich.

That is the thread that had me thinking I would be better off selling than keeping the HK911 as was nearly new on the outside. However, with a few "features" (i.e. flaws) in the rifle from the previous owner and/or owner's gunsmith, most likely will not be able to get top dollar and still be fair to all with full disclosure (i.e. could have pinned a new barrel extension on and replace / polished the bolt ... ). Since the rifle had a few "features" decided was time to just shoot it and seek if was going to be an assembled parts kit or what ever.

Well the bad news (at least for the G3K at the moment ;-) is this is the smoothest shooting HK91 that I and the rest of the guys at today's shoot have ever fired by a long shot (the general comment was better than a FAL and nearer a 5.56) with everyone today was hitting the steel at 250 yards most of the time with iron sights and nearly 100% of the time once the German surplus scope was on, using M80 ammo (aka 150gr ball). Also tried the loaner XS drum (Thanks!) and it worked great on semi (did not get the full auto bolt carrier in yet and the HK911 is shooting well enough might have to get another 308 for a host gun .... one can have too many HK91s and never find a sear host if they all shoot well ;-). The difference in recoil is, I am assuming, in a large part due to the German heavy buffer in the SG1 stock that come with the rifle. A further bonus is the HK911 but hole stock came with a second German heavy buffer, at now extra cost (last German heavy buffer I got here was $250 and change with shipping ... it is going into a club foot stock for the iron sighted HK91 sear host or so was the plans).

Since it did not happen w/o photos ... will process one and link in shortly (or in the morning depending on how long pre cleaning oiling takes ;-)

Sell it in CA- use Calguns.net for their sale forum.

The '911' moniker is worth a premium here in the PRK, and any time an evil (legal) rifle comes in to cali, God creates a cute puppy :D

Value.. try $3000. If not higher. SR9s routinely sell for $2800+ here. Always easier to deal down than deal UP :)

Thanks will have to check it out and see if I need a certain post count etc. However, this one was shooting well enough may have to keep it and kick a FAL out to make room, as was living in the den (does make an interesting back up to the Rem 870 ... but maybe a little too much of a good thing ;-). It sounds like sooner or later all the SR9s and HK911s will end up in the PRK, no wonder don't see any them around any more. Since the HK911 does not have the poly rifling, might be worth a little less or maybe not since does have the threaded muzzle (not sure on the PRK in regards to off list evil black rifles other than the bullet button "stuff").

One of the shooters yesterday had to walk away before I clamped the scope to the fresh and unmarred surface of the HK911 ... which if was going to sell it was a mistake but if patting it out for building a G3K or using as a sear host was a non issue. Thanks and appreciate a good discussion.

Sell it in to California, we would be glad if you did. Post it up here on HKPRO first though, give the Cali 'pro members a shot before you post on Calguns, just my 2 cents anyway.
Be prepared to give out the serial number, some folks stamping in an extra '1' like they do the 'T' on SR9s, going to get people in trouble.
You can take the gun apart, and ship just the barreled receiver into California to the FFL for transfer. Ship the rest of the parts separately to their house.

Do I need to put and pin the barrel extension back on first?

I would love to buy it , but I not in country, btw I am new to this forum, but for the past 4 months, I have been looking at the 41, 91, and converted 91s to g3k clones, looking for who would put a paddle on a 91, who would do a trigger job for a 91, what accessories I could put on an hk-91 to make it better, I was thinking on learning how to be able to "armorer" mine if I were to buy it too, and what tools guages etc, I would need to buy to be able to service my own rifle.

When I get back to Washington that is.

I am thinking if I should buy 100 or 200 mags at the end of the month too, I think I would want only steel ones.

Definitely sell it in CA. Any guns whose immediate siblings are banned by name always do well. I'd consider it myself if I didn't just pick up an SVI.

It certainly isn't in summer shape but a trip to Dakota Tactical would sort that out quickly enough. It'd certainly be a selling point if you priced out an overhaul with him and passed it on to potential buyers.

If you sell it in CA you'll have to sell it as an upper separate from the lower, as it will be considered an "assault weapon" as an assembled firearm. Leave it up to the buyer to sort that out.

Post it here and then on Calguns!

JT, I know you've been contemplating the G3k conversion for quite some time now. Why not just pull the trigger on it? Since I'm in the process of doing mine now, I've been reading quite a bit and have heard nothing but great things about the G3k...as if the 91 series rifles were left at the doorstep of an unsuspecting neighbor by their biological parents, Mr. and Mrs. G3k :4000:

Decided the pricing point was such that building from a clone receiver was the way to go, plus gave options for scope mounts, shell defector and/or forward assist, however, the PTR receiver is back ordered for half a year.

The HK911 was working nicely on the 250 yard steel swingers .... Photos at: http://www.issmc.com/photos/HK911
