Was speaking with a contractor this morning and the subject turned to guns and ammo. He mentioned that he was looking for 7.62x51 ammo. When I asked what he was going to shoot it out of he stated be had an HK91 that he bought back before the ban and was wanting to start shooting it again. When I mentioned what a nice and valuable firearm that was he had no idea it was worth that much more than what he paid for it back then which he thought was around $1K.
Told him it was worth a good bit more than that today and said he ought to sell it and buy some other things since he never shoots it. I offered to let him tour the armory and see if there were several somethings I had that he might like and perhaps we could work out a trade.
From what I can tell a fixed stock, preban HK91 in excellent condition is worth around $2500 or so. Is that about right?
I've got an early cast receiver CETME but a real 91 would be pretty sweet. Thoughts?
