    Huh, I had no idea. It's kind of interesting what is available. I don't know about inexpensive though - at least not through their US facing side of the business.

    Turkish or Circassion walnut is about as expensive as a gunstock gets. Gorgeous stuff though!

    There may well be unissued stocks out there, sure.
    I have never seen anything that indicates anyone is making new production Wood Stock sets for the G3 series. The Polymer stocks are just more desirable from a military POV. Wood stocks are expensive and harder to maintain. Unissued but not new production.

    In fact the US Army evaluation of the G3 rifle in 7.62mm and 5.56mm in January 1969 recommends reducing the weight by using a synthetic stock.

    I do not see there being a enough of a market for any new production stocks. It would be nice.

    What I did find was an ad at HK Specialists listing a NEW PRODUCTION Wood A3 stock by MKE.
    It looks like vaporware but it would be nice if true. Kind of a unicorn, LOL.

    I contacted PTR and asked them if they know if anyone has made new wooden stocks for the HK 91/PTR 91 series.

    I bought one of those new sets from HKspecialists back in the day. I think they where around $100. I still have them packed somewhere.

    I second that! I have a CZ .22 with one of those fine factory stocks from a few years ago. Try finding a Ruger 10/22 made in the last 20 years with a stock near as nice (or even one that isn't laminated for that matter)!

    I picked of a set of G3 furniture from a fellow on GB who was selling several sets a few years ago with HK marked buttplates from the mid 60s. At $125 I thought it was decent surplus condition but nothing to write home about; about the same as what it looks like Numrich is selling. Seems like a fair price to me.

    Nothing Ruger makes in rimfire even remotely compares to CZ quality and finish. I have given up on them even though my first semi was a great 10/22 back in the 80s.

    FWIW

    I took my rifle out to the range and fired about 400 rounds. I wanted to check the zero and ensure the new parts I have installed all worked reliably. I also wanted to see how the wood performed for heat protection. I have used the slim handguards, the wide hand guards, and the wood. The wood was impressive in its ability to handle the heat the PTR 91 produces. While not quite as good as the wide handguards, the wood was leaps and bounds ahead of the slim handguards. I could hold the weapon without gloves comfortable even after rapid fire. The smoke poured thru the holes but the wood did a good job of protecting my hands provided a pleasant warmth. The stock had a regular buffer and I found the recoil to a normal, pleasant, roller delay impulse.

    All in all my favorite furniture on the rifle for both aesthetics and functionality.
