Said to have been developed at the request of West German police units following the Munich Massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics, where police units lacked the precision shooting ability to effectively neutralize the terrorists to prevent the hostages from being killed. H&K was commissioned to create a high capacity, highly accurate, semi-automatic rifle for military and law enforcement use. Based on the H&K G3 series of rifles with a 26 inch, heavyweight, free floating, stainless steel barrel with polygonal rifling, no provisions for standard fixed sights, low noise bolt closing device (similar to the forward assist on the AR-15). The receiver has integral scope bases with Hensoldt PSG1 6x42 illuminated reticle scope, and adjustable trigger with adjustable shoe. The magazine well is correctly marked "PSG1 44-1171" and dated "IK" (1989), contoured grip with adjustable palm shelf, and fixed polymer buttstock with adjustable comb and length of pull. Includes nylon sling and a metal storage case with fitted interior, containing an HK Loga system tripod, sling, three extra magazines, cleaning tools, and small tools.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% original black finish with limited handling evidence. The case is very fine with light wear. The accessories are excellent. Scope optics sharp, with some wear and tear of the lens cup and eyepiece. Illuminator untested. Mechanically excellent.
