Heckler & Koch HK53A2 5.56mm NATO Factory HK Pre May Dealer Sample Machine Gun w/ KAC Rail System


Status: In-Stock / Please Call to Purchase

This Chester County Armory listing is for a true German factory-made Heckler & Koch HK53A2 5.56mm NATO Pre-May Dealer Sample Only machine gun with an original Knight’s Armament Company railed forend installed.

This Heckler and Koch German-factory weapon was originally fabricated and assembled in West Germany in 1984, as indicated by its “IE” receiver date coding. Bolt carrier and bolt head are also IE date coded. It was imported into the US directly by H&K through their Chantilly, VA facility as a post-1968/pre-1986 Dealer Sample Only restricted machine gun.  This model is an original H&K factory-made, double push pin constructed weapon, so it will take all original H&K machine gun parts. It’s original hand guard has been removed (but will be included with purchase) and a new condition Knight’s Armament Company forend rail system with covers has been installed (KAC Part no 97198). This model is NFA papered as an HK53A2 and proudly displays its original A2 stock, as well as the 0,1, 25 contoured trigger housing developed by H&K specifically for use on US imported HK53 models intended for Law Enforcement use.

Overall, this weapon is in fantastic operational condition and well-above average cosmetic condition for a Pre-May Dealer sample model. The metalwork is excellent, with no dents, dings, cracks, etc. and only minor surface scratches. The bolt face is crisp and clean and the bolt carrier group shows very limited wear. The barrel remains bright and shiny with crisp, clean rifling.

Cosmetically, the exterior finish notes only minor handling and use marks in its original Heckler & Koch factory applied finish, mostly reserved to the left side of the receiver and the right side of the magazine well. Due to the heavy use by LE agencies on the majority of HK53 Pre-May samples seen on the market, very few examples retain this type of original quality physical condition to the original H&K factory finish. The KAC rail system that has been installed is in new condition, and will come with the original KAC box and manual, as well as an original HK forearm with integrated hand stop for the 53 (not pictured).

This Pre-May 1986 Dealer Sample Only machine gun is available for purchase by Class 3 FFL/SOT holders, only. It will come with one 25 round original factory H&K magazine.  This model is currently on an eForm capable Form 3 that lists “Imported NFA Firearm” as the manufacturer and “HK53A2” as the model.
