WTK where to find POF slimline handguards for a G3?

Does anyone know where I could find a few POF slimline handguards in OD green? The only ones I've found were the wide models.

thanks

Yeah it has to be POF. The OD green shades are different between HK and POF.

The shades of green differ thru out all makers and parts.

HK has never had an exact match between the forearms and butt stocks.

Different types of plastic.

The closest you will find are the FMP.

POF does not offer a slimline forearm.

I thought about this thread when I was looking for something in an HK parts box. I thought there was one handguard that was really different. It's not painted, the color is through the plastic. There's a bit of overmold on the front metal. The lighter green HK one has sharper inner mold lines and a "10" just above the inner hear shield. The bright green one has an 8" about an inch higher up and the inner mold lines are more rounded over.

Isn’t that bright green hanguard a FMP. I have a couple of them. I have been trying to find a buttstock to match.

I have no idea. I don't even remember where I picked it up. I've only seen the HK black and standard OD green, the tan color on an Enfield G3, and this odd green in the photo. I don't ever recall seeing a matching stock or grip.

I always heard they were FMP. They are a really cool green. I would love to piece a full set but I only have seen the handguards.
