I think an HK 94 would be a great gun to have. And I have seen something about these, I am assuming they are lower cost and show more wear than most others. Does anyone know anything about these such as cost and where you might could find one?

The 94 is just an MP5 is semi-auto only and with a long (16") barrel, right? Frankly, I don't see the point.

There is one at a local gun shop near here. The price tag is astronomical, and it looks pretty well used.

What are the "CA DOJ" guns you are referring to?

I had a HK94, (A3 actualy, teloscoping stock, with foregrip and barrel shroud) I sold it back in 97 for an astronomical $3000.00

I don't miss it a bit. Whenever I think I'm getting wistful for one, I realize I'm really just wistful over not being rich eoungh to afford one. A 16" bbl AR type actualy weighs less for 1/2 to 1/3rd the price, and is much more potent with .223 vs. 9mm, for the price of the HK you could buy a 9mm upper for that AR that takes cheaper UZI or Sten magazines, and still have plenty of money left over.

It's only claim to fame is the "HK mystique". It'll launch 30 9mm bullets as fast as you can pull the trigger. It's nothing that a $200 Hi-point, or a $350 Kel-Tec Sub 2000 won't do for a fraction of the price. The HK would be tougher or more reliable, but it's not $1500+ more reliable, IMO.

Bernie, the CA DOJ dumped their HK 94s several months ago. I'm not sure how many there were, but for a while it seemed like everyone was advertising them. I transfered a couple of them, and I had a strong urge to buy one, pay the $200 to SBR it, and then suppress it. It would have been a fun project of very little value other than cool factor and just plain fun, but that is good enough reason for me. I never got around to it, but perhaps someday.

At the time they were selling for about $2250 (+ or - about $75). I think CDNN had some for a while as well. I'm not sure if any of them are left. The DOJ guns were in various stages of external wear. As with many police trade ins, they were carried (trunked?) much and shot little, so the internals were supposed to be great on most of them.

I'm not sure who might have any left, but the prices are probably slightly higher now. I see them pop up on HKPRO every once in a while.
