Parts are non-existant, and they kick harder than my 30.06 rifles.

I have an HK 630 in 223 which is the 770 little brother. They are a fine shooting rifles which has a quick attaching scope mounting system. The mount fits all the models the same. It's generally about $300.00 to $400.00 if it can be found. This rifle really throws the brass and it also screws the brass with gas groves from ejection system. Reloading the brass may not possible if you can find it. Fit and finish is excellent from the factory but finding their stock mags is hard. I did manage to find a pair of their optional 10 rounder to fit mine. Those were new and very high buck. The rifles keep their value depending on their condition. I've turn down some nice offers on mine, because they are rare, hard to find at a price which is fair. A plain Jane one (bare) in fair condition was about $1100.00 but that was years ago. Shoot yours find out how light they are. Enjoy having a well built rifle...........

The SL7 is the para-military version, and has HK91 diopter sights. It looks a whole bunch like a G43. As stated above, mags are stupid expensive[but rare]. I've owned several SL-7's, and sold them because of unavailability of parts and the profits I made. Quality rifles for sure, but like all early HK stuff...far more expensive than competitor's offerings, making everything rarer and pricier. HKpro.com can give you tons of info.

Congratulations!

Got my hands on HK940 nr. 246 from 1983, with user manual and guarantee stamped from German dealer. Tempting to sell, but I rather keep it in the family for future generations.


The HK630, 770 and 940 has barrels made with cold hammer forging. A process developed in order to turn the "genius" of MG34 into the mass produced MG42. Extremely expensive production tools, but a lot of gun barrel for the money- at large scale production.

Cold hammer forging increase (MG) barrel life from 10.000 rounds to 15.000 rounds. In addition the HK barrels used in the 630, 770 and 940 are polygonal.

Polygonal rifling to the right- easy cleaning and less material tension in the barrel.



The 630, 770 and 940 are byproducts of high end military production lines. Owners can consider themselves to be fortunate...

HK has a 20 year guarantee for providing gun parts after terminating a production line. Believe the 630, 770 and 940 production line was terminated in 1993.

HK630, 770 and 940 are "demilitarized" AG rifles. German gun control laws forbid use of military gun parts for civil use. This makes it hard to get parts for the 630, 770 and 940s.
(10 round mags were made for export only.)

However, with a barrel that can be fired at least 15.000 rounds for the next 200 years, and still look good, - who cares. (I myself shoot a navy Long Krag from 1907 on a regular basis...)


-The rubber padding in the back of the reciever housing is crucial, and it will be worn out- it can be purchased from a US producer at low cost.
-It is reported a weakness in the trigger mechanism. In case of trouble:A replacement part can best be made out of knife blade steel, it will keep forewer.
-The rod inside the recoil spring is hollow, if any truble- replace it with a solid steel rod.

With a HK770, and its .308 ammo, it is plenty room for using the metal from AG/AG3 mags and welding 20/30 round 770 mags...using the lips from a 3 round mag...

By the way: You probably realize you have to lock`n load before you enter the hunting ground

Thanks for the info. A little advice for you. If you haven't hit the newbie thread yet. Please do so. And when I made this deal. I was ill informed about these kinds of rifles. Mine didn't come with a magazine. It was only the rifle and scope base. Not the g5. Just a base that works with the square ports on the receiver.

My dentist has all three, .223, .308 and 30-06. For a long time I wanted a .223 real bad but he told me if you think you're going to reload for it think again, it slings the brass a mile and tears the crap out of it. I actually found a pretty good deal on one a while back but finally decided against it. For now I think I'll just stick with my AR-15. I have a Model 270 in .22lr and it's my favorite .22 but it is ammo picky. CCI mini mags is the only thing it digests consistently.
