HK 41

Apologies for lousy photography. I accidentally snipped off the flash hider in the shot, but it looks like any other G3 flash hider. This is a April 1966 dated HK 41 from my collection. Pulling things out of the safe for spring cleaning and thought I would share some pics. Santa Fe Division of Golden State Arms... back in the good old days when California had not gone off the deep end on guns...

Awesome pair of rifles! I have a 1966 41 with the slim synthetic forearm, Id love to fine a metal one with the bipod to put on it.

I used to shoot that in the 80s and can tell you that forearm is toasty at the end of 20 rounds.

Really a outstanding pair of weapons. Makes me want to get out my humble HK stuff just to love them.

Was at a Julia Auction back in 2017 and they had a 11/62 marked Golden State G3 with the metal forearm/bipod and thought it was the coolest thing.

The Santa Fe guns...

Are things of beauty from a different era. Like a "G" FAL.

Thanks Tony, I believe I gave you the serial numbers on those years ago, back when I posted them on the HK Pro Forums.
