    Saw some photos of early G3's (HK91) with ventilated sheet metal forearms. Anybody know of a source for these, either original or repro?

    No doubt they did get hot and that is why they were replaced. I want one for a PTR-91, which has a medium weight barrel, and which I never rapid fire anyway. Frankly, I want it just for looks.

    Just ask those of us who have a StG58 (FN FAL) with the metal handguards. Please pass the oven mit!
