The G3 wood buttstock is an important component of the G3 and 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 and is also helpful in 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. Originally issued alongside initial-production G3 service rifles, the G3 wood buttstock is an original factory part made in Germany by HK.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to any firearm. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially components of the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary. Though you might not be inclined to view the G3 wood buttstock as a component of the rifle that is essential to its function, it is just that. Try keeping the bolt carrier in the rifle without it!
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.

Light cleaning, oil and install. This thing makes your rifle look great. There is nothing like a wood stock to give your rifle a old school military look.
No scratches or dings and the wood looks great on my PTR. I shopped around and these were priced lower then any of the usual sources. Thanks Keep Shooting for another great item.
I have bought these stocks from other websites and they were in bad condition and cost more money. The ones you get from KeepShooting are clean, new, and undamaged. I won't be looking elsewhere for H&K products anymore!
This thing is a great deal for the price. Wood is awesome. It should include the forward stock with this for a complete package.
Ordered two. One was mint and the other was in good shape.
Too bad these stocks won't fit on my PTR91 pistol.
I don't know how anyone could complain about what I received for the price, but it is a crap shoot buying these items after all, part of the fun. The hardware is as advertised, all there. The wood is really impressive, just a few dings.
I refinished mine and it looks like a walnut mirror. My rifle looks like a ready to issue 50's G3. Nothing says class like a real wood stock.
I may be young, but I can really appreciate the finer things in life like wood furniture on a classic German assault rifle. It arrived in excellent condition and was immediately installed on my G3!
Surprised at the condition, the guide rod was perfectly straight, and spring has a ton of tension still.
The wood cleaned up to look great. A few handling marks, but hey that just gives it character!
