Our Assessment:  The Hesse H91, produced by Hesse Arms, is an American civilian variant of the iconic Heckler & Koch G3 battle rifle, renowned for its use in military forces worldwide. Designed to replicate the G3’s distinguished features, including its roller-delayed blowback system, the H91 is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO (.308 Winchester), offering both the power and versatility desired by shooters. While aiming to maintain the aesthetic and functional characteristics of the original G3 for the civilian market, the H91 has garnered a mixed reputation due to variability in manufacturing quality and reliability. Despite this, it holds appeal among collectors and shooting enthusiasts who value its historical design and potential for customization in modern shooting activities, though potential buyers are advised to closely evaluate individual units for quality assurance.  Please see our photos and good luck on your bid!  – L.S.
