1/31/19 - This is a great example of a rarely seen HK43 assault rifle, chambered in .223 (5.56mm) and made in 1974. Only about 300 of these rifles were imported into the US, before being superseded by the HK93 model. This gun is all original and retains almost all of its finish with just a few rub marks here and there - and a few tiny scratches on the scope mounting points. The majority of finish loss is on the muzzle brake. Excellent bore and furniture. Comes with a cleaning kit, original manual and a spare buttplate. The least common of all of the HK rifles currently in US, the HK43 can be a centerpiece of any H&K collection. An original, cased German Fero sniper scope in minty condition can be made available to the purchaser at extra cost.
