    Hesse HK91

    Dare I buy a Hesse? :scared: I have a century cetme, but I stumbled upon this. What's a good price, and what should I look for? Same stuff with the century or no?

    With the big fat receiver on it? If so, I would not buy it. They are pinned together and not well done. YMMV.
    It always looks darkest.....just before it goes totally black.

    I'm not sure. Do you have any pictures of what the "fat" receiver looks like?

    FAC is the ugly one I was thinking of. Not sure about the looks of the Hesse but most folks say to run away. Those same folks say they are a step below a Century. It would be nice to shoot it before you buy it. No more than $500 is what I would pay but that is just me. Take a feeler gauge and check for gap, etc. so you know if even the basics are right. A good price always scares me and used guns need thorough checking.

    Fac is aluminum and there were some springfields built on them. They are thick. The Hesse steel is the origin of the century receivers. Too tell the stainless vs steel century, the thicker material, an the proper scope bases are two ways to tell. I imagine though it's a stamped Hesse, as they were the most common.

    I have a HESSE and she shoots fine. I have heard horror stories about them though, so make sure it's in good condition like the others said. As with all the other brands you must check the bolt gap an CT gap and the other factors mentioned here. I have pics of mine http://www.militaryfirearm.com/Forum...l=1#post217752.
