WTK: Odd HK G3 handguard add-on ???

Does anyone know anything about these HK G3 / 91 slim HG add-on? Perhaps extra heat shield or for ergonomics? Does it have a name or designation? Who made them?

Take your pick of any African country.😉

Never seen one, even from years of searching HK stuff.

I got one at a local show where I picked up my Force Publique Congo grenade launcher. Never seen another GL but the g3 swell is the third Iíve seen including mine.

Just when I think I've seen about everything....

Looks effective but ugly.

It's a good idea anyways. Don't know how anyone can
stand the slim HG's.

BTT in case somebody has more info on them.

As I said, mine was at a table with a Congo GL. Did Congo use the G3? It doesn't guarantee they came from the same country, of course. But it would be nice to know who made these.

I have one of these. Had it about five years now. I was actually almost thinking that it might fit a CETME Modello B type metal handguard too. But my B kit is in deep storage so no way to report.
