I've been offered an unfired HK91 still in it's
original grease, that has been in storage since
1981. What should I offer for it?

Is there anything I should check that may effect
it's value? I'm having difficulty with paying
over 2 Grand for a rifle, but if I'm going to do
this, this seems like a good find.

Thanks for answering here!

A true NIB HK91, huh?, What's the furniture on it? Slim forearm or wide? Buttstock, A2 or other?, Port buffer?

The HK Market is soft right now, but for a NIB HK91, $2000 - $2500 is the current range.

Yes, a true HK91. This is the original owner, It comes with all but the cleaning kit, including - original box, sling, 2 factory mags, test target, and owner's manual. 1981 model unfired.
(except by "Herman the German")

It has the wide forearm, 'normal' buttstock, no port buffer, and he didn't know about A2. Neither do I! It looks pristine, in it's original factory grease.

Questions for anyone:

What should I offer him? It this a collectable or should I use it as a weekend shooter? He says I should add this to my collection, unfired, and get a reworked G3 as a weekend shooter.

Well, if I were selling it I would not let it go cheap except to a long time friend or a family member. If I were buying I would try to get it cheap. What it is worth, is up to you. Do you want a "safe queen" or are you going to shoot it a lot? If I were going to shoot it a lot, then I would probably go after a less pristine example.

If your still thinking about buying the 91, I paid $2000 for one in "like new" cond., including 4 original 20 round mag's. Mine is a std. A2 with a wide forarm in all black, this seems to be the going rate for a good one. As for not using it...
what good will it be? If you keep it in perfect cond. shooting it will only lower the price by $100 - $200 tops! Unless I miss my guess it will cost you allot more than that to buy a "shooter" just to leave that one in the box. If your going to run hundred's of rounds a week through it then yes, buy a second one to shoot, (a nice G3 will get those rounds through faster), but if your like most of us you would be hard pressed to wear out a brand new HK 91.
