    Finalized a deal today. My newest AR is no more. It's replacement? A H&K 93. [​IMG]

    None yet. I'll have some later. It has both stocks, some mags, 2 flash hiders, port buffer, wide forearm, and a few other doohickies. I think it'll be fun.

    I bought an HK 93 in 1983, sold it to a friend in the mid-80's, then bought it back in 1992. Glad to have it back. When I bought it, HK had a special and threw in the cleaning kit, the folding bipod, 3 magazines, site adjustment tool, and a patch. I also bought the skinny forearm. I almost sold it again in 2002 when I was buying a new car, but thankfully I held on.

    That 93 is sweet as shit. Mind me asking how much you shucked out back in '92? I need a rear sight too -- got a spare? [​IMG]

    When I originally purchased the gun ('83), it was 565 bucks if I remember correctly. When I bought it back in '92, I paid 1500.

    Sorry, no extra site :) The only thing on my wish list is one of the A-3 stocks. I have also owned an HK91, enjoyed it too.

    I got an H&K 91, and am waiting for PTR to make some cheap 93's.

    (BTW, the only valid reason to sell an AR is to buy an H&K.)

    But I would probably buy a stripped AR lower the next week.

    Thanks dude. I got a carry handle, port buffer, A2 stock, spare recoil pad, 2 40 rounders, 2 25 rounders, a leather sling, a 3-point sling, and 2 flash hiders.

    I bought the ARMS mount about a year ago anticipating getting an HK in the future, and the day has finally come. I'm up to my 3rd Aimpoint. I just can't get enough of those things...

    i can't wait until my friend's 91 gets done being built. it's getting one of his MP5's sear packs, so he'll have a belt-fed .308 auto. it'll be a fucking blast.

    Well tell him good luck on that project, cause its a :coolugh: project. Even though every single 21 I've shot has had at least a hiccup or two over the couple hundred I've put them thru. Should be nice though :wiggle:
