Heckler & Koch HK53 5.56mm NATO “0,1,25” Select Fire Pre May Dealer Sample Machine Gun


Status: In-Stock / Please Call to Purchase

This Chester County Armory listing is for a German-factory constructed Heckler & Koch HK53 5.56mm NATO Pre-May Dealer Sample Only machine gun.

The HK53 is Heckler and Koch’s compact, MP5 sized version of the HK33K 5.56mm NATO battle rifle.  This 8.3″ barreled weapon is completely German factory-made weapon, so it sports the original double push pin design, and is equipped with a factory three position molded trigger group that notes safe, semi, and full-auto controls that are marked “0”, “1”, and “25”, respectively. Models marked with fire control numbers instead of “SEF” like this were only intended for German export to the US law enforcement and military markets.

Overall, this weapon is in excellent mechanical condition, with only moderate wear on the internals noted.  The exterior metalwork is solidly intact, with no dents, dings, cracks, etc. of any functional or structural concerns. The bore remains bright and shiny with well-defined rifling. The bolt carrier notes some moderate finish wear and minor scarring of the bolt head. Cosmetically, this weapon appears in very good condition with only minor surface handling and use marks noted in the original black HK finish. The polymer furniture is also in very good condition, with only minor marks from handling and use noted. The weapon is marked with the number “2” on the trigger housing and magazine well by the original law enforcement agency that was the import recipient of this machine gun.

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 a “keeper” gun, that may be retained by a licensee upon surrender of their FFL license. It is currently on a Form 3.
