The G3 snap ring is a circular spring located in G3s that employ the retractable buttstock. This part is necessary in the assembly of the retractable buttstock as it is used to secure the locking ring to the clamping lever. It is an original factory part made in Germany by HK. Now, you can order a 4-pack of snap rings for just $2.95 and ensure that your retractable buttstock remains in working order.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. Though the retractable buttstock on the G3 is not necessarily needed for functionality, it is an integral part of the rifle. 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. Not only are they readily available, but also they are cheap. Now is the time to take advantage.

These are the spring that fits over the grove in the front triple tree aka Sight base.
They are used to hold rifle grenades on but are also used to hold the blank firing adapter in place.
On a lot of rifle built during the useless Clinton ban (what a joke that was) these were removed.
I bought a pack to replace them on my guns so I can use the original blank firing adapter if I choose.
My package had all correct style rings that look new.
If your like I am and just want everything that is supposed to be there to actually be there then this is a good price for these.
I believe these are grenade tension springs, not stock springs. All of the stock springs I have seen are flat clips, either with holes for snap ring pliers or slide on that do not require the snap ring pliers.
