    Chevy Chase and the HK 91

    Below is a scene from the otherwise forgettable 1983 movie "Deal Of The Century". Not an HK expert, but did the HK91 really have a fold-down optical sight and a built-in bottle opener?

    No the HK did not. The Galil did have a bottle opener built in though course it was likely just by accident as it uses the same area for the bi-pod to recess into. The optic appears to be a SUIT style optic for an L1A1 FAL. How they mounted it with the ability to flip up off to the side- is for the movie.


    Galil bottle opener shown about 1/3rd the way down.

    Also you wouldn't want to try that with the commercial "plastic feet and hollow metal tube legs" version of the bipod. That said, the HK63/91 is amazingly robust for a stamped steel receiver rifle. As previously noted the bottle opener is a Galil thing and the only way you could have fold down optics is to take a Larue folding mount back in time and install it on an ARMS mount.

    Best scene for me though is when the guy tries to rob Chevy Chase.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.
