HK marking on MG34

Postby Abominog » Tue Mar 14, 2017 7:03 am

I was looking at a front receiver stub. On the top front left there is a marking about 1/4" HK in a circle.

I don't recall any HK marking on the MG34. And I can't imagine it would be Heckler Koch because I'm unaware of any MG34 refurb programs.

Any ideas?

Are you sure it isn't the Israeli symbol? The K is odd shaped in that, since it's not really a K. A picture would be good.

There was an inspectors proof HK found on yugo or czech manufactured ZB26- and later guns. I've seen it on other guns as well. It is quite possible the MG34 had gone through a rework at one of the factories in one of those countries or had been built there. DOT was in Brno CZ of course.
Hard to tell of course since there are no pics like Jon noted.
