    The "4" stamped inside of the "IS" forearm--- and the mere facts of the "rectangle" and date code, as well as CAR having similar items--- solidifies it being a German part, and that date-coded furniture exists beyond "IJ"--- please post a pic of the "4" and its placement!!!

    I will take a pic of "4" . How come some forearms come with a sling clip on the left side and some do not ? My IB does not have it , IS does.

    My "IS" slimline handguard has no clip, not even a spot for one. The clip was for use with the multipurpose web sling, most military customers used the standard leather sling. If you were not going to use that type of sling, the clip just got in the way and was a nuisance. Also, the multipurpose web sling did not come into general use until the late 1970's, so earlier handguards would not have the clip for it.

    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...

    G3/HK91 forearm datecode IS . Strange?-014_zpsobfx5smo.jpg

    The two slimline handguards I have.

    G3/HK91 forearm datecode IS . Strange?-005_zpshekq6ggy.jpg

    The black one is coded "IS" on the right rear side, it has no sling clip.

    G3/HK91 forearm datecode IS . Strange?-008_zpsjzdtfrdt.jpg

    It has a mold number of "8" on the inside forward end.

    The green one has a sling clip but no code anywhere.

    G3/HK91 forearm datecode IS . Strange?-013_zpspe2hnl6r.jpg

    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".

    G3/HK91 forearm datecode IS . Strange?-010_zpsutydzjpa.jpg

    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.

    G3/HK91 forearm datecode IS . Strange?-015_zpsxqerwpbx.jpg

    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.
