Welcome everyone to the 90th edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or only has a Fudd appeal? Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.
In our last edition, our poll showed that you, the readers, by the narrowest of margins deemed the woody AR-15 to be fudd crap.
At this time, the original auction has ended with a final bid of $1,511. Sadly this wasn’t enough though to meet the seller’s reserve, but the rifle has been relisted by the seller. We can only hope it finds its way to a new home soon.
In this week’s edition of HGFC, we look at a rare T&E only HK94. As is tradition, this collectible German gat is currently up for sale on GunBroker for $5,025 Current Bid or $20,000 Buy It Now.
HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP?
Rare or Ridiculous HK94?
Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:
“Hot Gat, but where’s the traverse and elevation mechanism?” – Rusty S.
“Hot gat, but not practical gat.” -Daniel Y.
“Run this as your primary with an MP7 as secondary, and poors will actually spontaneously combust in your presence.” – Will P.
Selling this collectible gat is GunBroker seller Keystone Arms, located in Huntsville PA. Let’s see what they had to say about this highly desirable HK.
When nothing but the Rarest of the Rare will do, look no further as you will not want to miss your chance at one of most sought Heckler & Koch Models to ever be produced!!
We are proud to offer up today this incredible Heckler & Koch HK94, chambered in 9mm!!
This is the rarest variation of the HK94 you can obtain!!
This First Year Production Heckler & Koch was built in 1983 wearing the “ID Date Code” Chantilly, Va Import Mark and the Ultra Rare T&E Only Markings!!
The T&E Only markings stand for (Testing and Evaluation), meaning this HK94 was used as a test sample for Heckler & Koch!! Just imagine the History with this piece!!
This incredible example shows some signs of handling and uses which is to be expected of an HK Test Sample Firearm!!
If you are struggling to find that Extra Special Centerpiece for your Collection, Don’t miss your chance at this Once In a Lifetime Opportunity to add the Holy Grail of Heckler & Koch HK94s to your Elite Collection!!
First things first, I love roller delayed blowback guns, and then topping it off with something like this Aimpoint 5000 is just icing on the cake. If this isn’t pure ’80s-’90s nostalgia, I don’t know what is.
The weird elephant in the room (and maybe some think it’s cool) is the barrel shroud. It certainly looks better than a long exposed pencil barrel, but to me, it looks like an oversized cheese grater.
It’s hard to find things I don’t like about this platform, but the missing paddle mag release is a bit of a bummer. This isn’t going to be a deal-breaker for whoever buys this gun, but it’s certainly a feature I really wish it had.
So is this the ultimate HK collectors gun or just something only your local HK fanboy would appreciate? With a price tag above $5,000 it’s certainly desirable, but is it worth it for that price? As always I leave it up to you, the reader, to decide.
What do you think? Is this Rare HK a Hot Gat or some niche fanboy Fudd Crap? Be sure to let us know in the comments below, and cast your vote to let us know if this Rare HK 94 T&E gun is a Hot Gat or Fudd Crap:
