Does someone else want to track this in the main thread and post the major problems? I can track it but other than the mags and significant reblueing I don't know enough to list all of the problems.

Pete picking up his toys and going home really is a huge loss for budding HK collectors . He was willing to be the call-out guy on bad stuff .

That said there is still enough posted here to find MAJOR issues with this fake .

It would be easier to say what is right .
Looks like not much to me .

Frame is not HK nor is the receiver and on and on .

Post it and I will add some comments on what is bad .

It's posted. I don't mind posting the stuff that needs to be called out, I do it on stuff I know about. I just don't know what to post on these.

While looking into something else I stumbled upon this same gun that sold on 1/5/2020 to the current seller for $3,550 BIN.

So either seller knows it's a turd and is willing to take a loss or seller is trying a quick flip? It's the only item the seller has listed at a start price of $0.01...

Hunter McBride buys / alters / misleads / flips WWII items as well. Would have been a touch of fate to see a flipper get burnt by a flipper to get burnt in a new sale. Look at his AC41 with the big X on the slide that is "not been restored or refinish." Not sure how the big X got there under the bluing finish if the Russians did it after capturing it with the lovely blued locking block.

Like a bad penny. It surprises me how many folks will drop multiple thousands on a story, but apparently not willing to do a little research. Just saw it today and thought, haven’t I seen this one recently? Sad.
I guess that depends.. is the listing accurate and truthful? If the seller knows the item is fake and all of the problems that exist, is the seller honest?
