Own four IK date coded HK's, they have IJ, II furniture.
The latest G3 mag I have is from 1995 too. I thought it might have been made for the late Enfield rifles.
Here are my pics...
The two slimline handguards I have.
The black one is coded "IS" on the right rear side, it has no sling clip.
It has a mold number of "8" on the inside forward end.
The green one has a sling clip but no code anywhere.
Strangely enough, it also has a mold number of "8" on the inside.
Here is the black tropical hand guard that came on my "IB" date coded HK-91. It has a sling clip and is coded "3IA". The butt stock on this rifle is coded "4IA".
Here is an HK replacement grip coded "IS". I bought this grip new from Brownell's in the mid 2000's.
Here is an outside shot of the "IS" coded grip.
Here is the green "4IA" coded butt stock on my "IC" date coded HK-91. I purchased this mint condition rifle a couple of years ago and it came with green furniture, the pistol grip is coded "4IA", the slimline hand guard is the one pictured, it has no date code. I tend to believe this rifle had the black furniture replaced with the factory HK green optional furniture sometime in the 1980's, perhaps when the rifle was purchased.

We had 2 PD trade in demil G3 kits (not hk91) that were set up as dmr w the black IS wide HG, Magpul stocks, 0,1,20 lowers. Interesting to know that they are uncommon, but then again, not alot of post sample real g3, sub-guns and intermediate cartridge firearms seem to be much more common (33,53,MP5,MP5-40)
As I and even Webber have stated before, a lot of times, the texture/finish is as much if more of a tell on HK polymer v.s. contract parts. Lots of HK furniture out there that do not have date codes and are factory HK.
