Google HK91 manuals or G3 manuals. I am not into HK 91's (G3's) but I have run across maintenance manuals on the web that might cover that topic.

Its not to hard to do. The front sling pin/loop is a rivet you have to punch it out it helps to drill or grind the round pinned end off first then smack it out. Then the front triple frame is lead soldered to the barrel so what i do is clamp the barrel in a padded vice heat the triple frame with a map gas torch. Using a piece of flat steel smack it off the barrel.
