    Robert over at RTG offers a couple of options for a "HK 91 survival pack".

    RTG's survival packs are a pretty decent place to start. Some of the items I think are just filler items but its never a bad thing to have those on hand I guess.

    I will say I have started to also perfect my field cleaning kit for the 91. I need to take apart and par down the head space gauge I have (don't need that many blades, just enough to test the head space and level any glass I may be moving around on the mount) but for a container I've discovered the decon containers work great. Like these https://www.omahas.com/shop/decon-case-waterproof-usgi/

    May do a separate post on this but it is also applicable here.

    In mine I fit the following

    -15cc eye dropper bottle of CLP, more than enough for a dozen or so cleanings (got from a lab supply warehouse in town)
    -A plastic and a Titanium "UCS" universal cleaning stick from county comm, aka "Nortons UCS" as dumb as these look they work really well for the mill slots in the bolt head and under the extractor.
    -Small Hemostat for a rear sight tool
    -Allen wrenches for whatever hardware is on the gun
    -small swatch of cut up white T shirt (6x6) for general wiping
    -1oz grease pot with automotive moly grease (cleaning sticks work well for spatulas when applying this)

    I am going over cleaning rod/jag/brush options currently to figure out what would best work for me. The bore snakes are fine for a quick wipe of the bore after a match but lack the ability to really scrub/deep clean the barrel.

    Spare parts for a HK91. Spare magazines and ammunition. That is all.

    Thats been all I really needed in over 30 years of shooting my 41s and 91. I am OCD so I bought Robert's complete small parts kit plus a spare locking piece etc. I would keep spare stock pins, large and small. As far as tools, back at the bench, site tool is nice, and the bolt assembly tool is invaluable. For all that I've never broken a part on an HK...

    Ok, seriously, a spare bolt. At the very least a few sets of rollers and the roller retaining plate. What else could possibly break?

    In reality, it is more about things getting away from you than breaking.

    Little bits get lost when in the field and the overwhelming desire to fiddle with or 'clean' the gun occur.

    Spare extractor springs is a must. It's the weak point of the system.

    Back in the late 80's I wore out a Form 1 HK91; barrel shot out, bulged rails, a split in the top of the cocking tube from the carrier rubbing in it.

    Somewheres between ten and fifteen thousand rounds, most in FA mag dumps

    Did all that with the same extractor spring...

    It was sent off to HK Chantilly for a rebuild. They did a nice welding job, too.

    Wow, he actually managed to rebuild it?
    Never heard of the rails bulging before.

    I agree the spare parts "survival packages" are pretty excessive. Just order what you need when something breaks, otherwise you end up building a pile of parts that eventually get sold off in spring cleaning.

    Ordering spare parts when something breaks?? Selling pile of parts?? spring cleaning?? You're not in the game enough if you're selling off parts every spring heh, I have mags and parts for stuff I doubt I'll ever own :)

    On a lighter note years ago when I did order the parts kits I found that all but the firing pin, dis-connector and mainspring would pack into an altoids tin with a laminated inventory of parts printed off and laminated in the lid for quick reference. That kind of insurance is nice to have on hand.

    The 'bulged rails' happen when you keep shooting a roller lock without any measurable bolt gap.

    I figured it was due for a rebuild anyway, so it was shot plenty more just to see what happens.

    Bottom line, the recoil got worse, but the damned thing kept doing what it was designed to---shoot reliably.
