The wood on the inside of the handguard was pretty dry and needs some linseed oil. It was obviously in storage for a while but saw light use as there was not any of the typical oil saturation marks found in milsurp wood stocks.

    I do plan on taking some boiled linseed oil or whatever the Bundeswehr use to maintain the wood but I will not "refinish" it, sand it, or do anything else. I want to leave it as close to service condition as possible.

    For comparison...The Rifle with Green furniture, Wide Handguard, and HK21 buttpad:
    Supply and demand--- looks great!!!

    These were on the early G3 rifles from roughly 1959-61 when they started using plastic stocks.

    As far as I know, they were installing surplus G3 wood stock sets rather than making new ones. Once their stockpile of surplus was gone, the option was no longer offered.

    I got a brand new set from them. No dent, no oil marks, smelled brand new. So for sure I got a new set. Later I don't know.

    You probably got an excellent surplus set if it was on a PTR. Making those stocks is not a trivial task in bulk, I doubt very much that PTR would bother back when surplus was so cheap - $20/set retail back then. If they tooled up to make sets when they were that cheap, why wouldn't they be still making them and charging $100/set when people will pay twice that on Gunbroker?

    If the threaded inserts in the buttstock have what looks like a screwdriver slot for installation, then they are surplus. I've never seen those sold in the US that I can remember, but I did find a European vendor for those very inserts. Rather than bother with the size of order to make international shipping worthwhile, I just switched to a similar insert in imperial pitch for the stocks I make.
