My question is, I can't seem to find the HK91 end cap that goes on the handguard. The Cetme cap is okay, but I would really like the HK version on here much better (No drilling the screw hole). I searched everywhere I could think of online but no luck. I'm hoping maybe a member on here may have one they can part with or point me in the right direction.
    You can do a handguard without the end cap. The plastic (actually fibreglass) slim G3 handguards have a metal piece in the front that can be cut out with a dremmel. Those are available for about $8. Then you can epoxy that piece into the front of the wood. Different look, but it does work.

    I would be glad to help; however, it will be a while as I am back on active duty and in processing my new unit. Post a few more times to get your post count up, then send me a PM and we can work from there.

    That is an excellent idea and looks great too!
    I finished up fitting the butt stock last week but now it is deer season and all projects are on hold until my freezer is full.

    Cool thank you very much! No problem I'm not in too much of a hurry I've been looking for a while now lol. Would you want my email or would you rather communicate on the forum, not sure how to direct message on this platform.

    I've done a couple without the factory cap too:

    That is just a piece of 1" hot roll flat, made a bending form to press it out pretty nice. At the time, factory wood was still available at a reasonable price (not $20 per set, but still reasonable) so these never really went anywhere. One day I may revive the project though.

    Almost finished. I just used an end mill on the CETME handguard end. Just need to stain the handguard (Recommendations on stain?) and put some rivets in.

    I used many coats of Tung oil on the sets that I did...
    Let it dry well polish with steel wool and apply more...
    Really brings the highlights of the wood grain out...

    Do have to say, I like what everyone did in this thread. Looks awesome.

    When I finally get around to picking up a PTR 9CT... I might have to try this.
