As noted, the G3 OD buttstock is an original factory part made in Germany by HK. They were stripped from service rifles, which means you are not only getting a complete, fully-functional buttstock, but a piece of history as well. This injection molded synthetic buttstock could originally be found on the G3A3 variant. It can be located on the rearmost part of the rifle mounted to the receiver and the trigger pack via the lower locking pins. The buttstock of a rifle is designed to be held against the shoulder during aiming and firing as well as spreading the force of recoil. In the G3, the buffer assembly is located within the buttstock and backplate and serves to reduce the amount of recoil delivered through the buttstock.
Spare parts and accessories are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. In the case of the G3, the buttstock is necessary for proper functioning as the bolt carrier would fall out of the receiver if it were missing. If a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.
It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com has a wealth of authentic, original factory parts from HK for the G3/HK91/PTR91.
