That's a G3kA4. 12.7" barrel, using a HK33/HK-93 forearm, rather than the ~1.5" longer G3 forearm. To make it just like that, you'd have to SBR your HK-91 and send it to a smith to have the barrel and cocking tube cut down.

If you were just going for something similar to that, it wouldn't be too difficult.

The gripframe on that is a Navy-ish "0-1-20" version that would be pretty expensive. An alternative would be to buy a plastic SEF gripframe (~$35) and have it "clipped and pinned" for semi use. Standard SEF internals for a steel gripframe would work well with the plastic SEF gripframe, but you would have to buy the appropriate selector switch (~$25).

Pretty much all HK-91s had the black forearm, like in the picture.

The telescopic stock could be expensive if you insisted on Oberndorf Hk manufacture (~$400) or relatively inexpensive if licensed, but not Oberndorf stuff, was acceptable (www.pof-usa.com for ~$200).

The paddle mag release seen on that G3 would have to be added to the receiver. It's well worth the ~$100 cost to install, but since it also requires a refinish, it would be best to do when doing other smithing jobs (like a G3k conversion). A less expensive alternative that requires no smithing is the Tac-Latch that many swear by.

"The G3KA4 with 12.4 inch barrel, smallest 7.62 x 51 caliber rifle that HK actually manufactures. The HK51 has been confused as being the smallest, but is only a production of American Class II manufacturers. Heckler & Koch does not make the HK51."
That is the caption below the same photo on HKPRO.
It has the standard retractable stock, not cheap(used Glock price range) and I'm unsure about the forearm. You'd have to have a "clipped and pinned" lower put on as well.
Aren't you a Kali resident?

Not that short, but similar:

The collapsible stock came in the package with mine; I understand they run about four bills by themselves. They're purt' near impossible to get a cheekweld on, and will bruise the bejeezus out of you if you shoot without a jacket on, but they look cool and do take up much less space in the trunk of a tiny car or in a crowded gunsafe than the fixed stock.

As far as the forearm goes, the wide forearm is pretty much standard on commercial HK91s; to get it all stubby like that (as pointed out above) you'll need a tax stamp.

Ergogrip also makes a cheapie grip that goes on the metal gripframe but has the profile of the the one you posted, Skunk.

You can also have the barrel cut back to the sight block (@16") so it looks more like the picture (but it will still be longer, since it will still be a G3 handguard, rather than the G3K/HK33 handguard pictured).

Hm. Didn't even notice that the first time through...

I wonder: does anybody make one piece poly trigger-group/grips for the G3/HK91? If they don't, they should; us wannabes would snap 'em up. ;)

Toad at SW has talked about making some; don't know if he has,though.

Here's a link..

P.S. I'm not willing to vouch for the quality of said product. :barf:

Tamara, just buy a plastic SEF gripframe and have a decent HK guy do a clip and pin job on it. Buy the appropriate selector switch and Bob's your uncle. The SEF is less expensive because you can use your existing HK-91 fire control parts.

If you feel the need for the ambidexterous types, you'll spend ~$400 since you'll need the internals, too. Then you'll need to get the entire setup converted. POF-USA has pictogram burst lowers for $275.
