Device 06H

Experimental German rifle made in 1944, the first of the roller-lock delayed blowback designes that eventually became CETME and HK .308s. This one is in 7.92×33. It’s crude, simple and works well. Recoil is minimal, with two distinct stages. Sights are simple and I found them hard to see on dark backgrounds.

I shot a couple of rounds sitting at 25 yards to check zero. Zero checked out. Ammo: 123gr FNM.

These were taken during video filming in cooperation with Forgotten Weapons.

    Just were does one get 7.92 x 33 mm ammo ? Also does anyone plan on making replicas of this particular device ?

    That carbine is so ugly (the buttstock looks like a jr. high school woodshop project, for one thing) that it looks cool.

    I find that, at reasonably close distance, a two shot group like that is plenty. Looks like both you and the firearm are doing well.

    I’ve owned an HK91 since 1985. Its one rifle I will never sell.

    Two-distinct-stage recoil?
