I POSTED THIS ON THE HKPRO FORUM AND DECIDED TO SHARE WITH YALL TOO. I HAVE BEEN MAKING HK CHARGING HANDLES AND CARRY HANDLES FROM ASH, AND CONVERTING AND PRESERVING THE WOOD WITH A RESIN PRESSURE INJECTION. I RECEIVED SOME CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM OVER THE ASH AND INJECTION PRESERVATION. I HAVE PHOTOS OF THE COMPLETE CONVERSION AVAILABLE.
FIRST AN MP5/53 CONVERSION FROM A CRACKED G3 HANDGUARD THAT WAS DIS ASSEMBLED, GLUED AND MODIFIED, BUT NOT YET TREATED OR REFINISHED.

Thank you, I have never been into wood working, but this HK wood thing is addictive...

Thanks to RTG getting a supply of tubular stock rivets in I have been able to complete a few projects. I have finally completed a couple of sets of K/93/33 length furniture.

Awesome work! Now we have someone in both the FAL and HK world doing great things with wood.

Have any 33/93 forearms for sale?

I am working on 4 custom sets that I will be offering up for sale. 1-MP5/53 set, 2-K/93/33 sets, and 1-91 length set with a bipod lug and clubfoot stock.
All will be complete sets with handguards, buttstocks, charging handles, carry handles, and grips, all finished sealed and ready to install.

You definitely have some nice stuff there.

I like the pistol grip :thumbsup:

Some one did VERY nice work on it. I only did the finishing, the grip came from RTG, but they are beautiful pieces. Every one I have bought has been perfect.
Last year I took an HK polymer grip to the Federal Penitentiary in Oakdale,La. and a piece of wood from Germany that I bought off ebay. They have a very unique 3-D replicator, first phase places the part in a chamber where lasers map it and create a CAD image, after that the CAD image can be loaded to a 3-D printer or a chamber that has a robotic arm that uses ball mills or router bits for cutting wood or harder polymers. The inmates did the finishing touches. The grip turned out very nice, but was an exact copy of the original. Just not near as nice or comfortable as the ones I received from RTG.

I'd be interested in the 91 set. Nice work.

With or without the bi-pod collar? I also have a wood clubfoot buttstock with a heavy rubber butt-pad that is near complete.

I welded a 7/16" ball bearing to the end of a punch for the flaring job, for the back to lay on while flaring, I drilled a 1/8" hole in the center of a 8"X8" plate and tack welded another bearing through the hole. I use shop rags to cover the steel plate to keep from scratching the wood.
