Need some feedback on first gun for a friend.
Ok so a friend of mine has decided that he wants to get himself a firearm. He has apparently owned a couple old black powder muskets his dad used for hunting but other than that has never owned a handgun, shotgun, or modern rifle. He said it is just a general purpose gun, and he seems to have fixated himself on an H&K 91. These are the specs he has given me.
Heckler & Koch HK91 .308
# Cal./Gauge: .308
# Barrel(s): 20'' including muzzle break.
# Weight: 12 Lbs. 3 ozs. as pictured.
# Sights/Scope: Bushnell Banner 3-9x40mm
# Stock Dimensions: 14 1/2'' LOP
# Butt/Pad: Serrated hard plastic.
# Metal Condition: Good to very good. Minor handling marks.
# Bore Condition: Very good to excellent. Bright, shiny and clean.
# Extras: Hardcase, 7 magazines total, additonal collapsible stock, black synthetic fore arm, and magazine pouch.
The Price is listed as $2900.
Personally I am a cheap bastard and would never spend $3000 on something without a V-8 in it but some arms are simply expensive. Especially as a first "real" weapon for someone. He says he's shot pistols rifles and such before but just hasn't owned any. So bullies what are you opinions on this particular weapon? Is it worth 3k?
