Make: Heckler & Koch
Serial Number: 75706
Year of Manufacture: Modern, FFL Required
Caliber: 9 mm
Action Type: Semi-Auto Pistol
Markings: The left side of the slide is marked "Heckler & Koch GMBH", the standard markings are present. The serial number is marked very lightly on the left side of the slide above the 9x19 stamp. It is also stamped more clearly on the barrel, visible through the ejection port.
Barrel Length: 4.5"
Sights / Optics: The gun is mounted with an interesting front blade with a channel down the middle which when viewed outside shows like a solid vertical line. The rear sight is a "U" in a dovetail slot.
Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are integral with the frame of hard synthetic/composite material. The grip/lower frame is in very good condition, and is marked "HK VP 70 Z" on the left side.
Type of Finish: Matte Blue, Synthetic
Finish Originality: All Original
Bore Condition: The rifling is visible the entire length and deep. The bore could use a good cleaning. There is some fouling present but no apparent erosion.
Overall Condition: This gun retains about 75%+of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows just a few light wear marks to the high points as on the right side of the slide below the ejection port and also on the left side of the slide, at the rear. The gun looks to have spent the majority of its life packed it grease, which has discolored the metal a bit, accounting for the only 75% assessment. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about Very Good condition.
Mechanics: The action function correctly. We do not test fire guns. The slide does not lock back when the magazine is present and unloaded. The included magazine holds 15 or more rounds.
Box & Accessories: There is no box, but one high capacity magazine that cannot be shipped to states with high capacity magazine restrictions.
Our Assessment: This is a high quality and seldom seen handgun. This fairly large frame should minimize the recoil from a 9mm cartridge. The gun appears to be double action only, and is comfortable to hold. Here is a great home protection gun, with double action only safety and manual safety behind the trigger.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun is not legal to transfer in California and cannot be private party transferred either.
