    Default Limb saver on G3 stock (or other recoil pad experiences)

    Have you put a limbsaver, or other non Oem, pad on a Hk 91? What did you use, etc and what was your outcome? The 91 has, I feel, unpleasant recoil for a semi auto. Would like to get input on recoil dampening. I just ordered a couple of the newly available heavy buffers from hkparts and am hoping they will help tame the beast. I would like to get the recoil tamed to where the wife would enjoy it like she does my Garand....

    I have used the E & L recoil pad, It is very affordable and effective. However, for a little more you could order an HK21 butt pad which is very comfortable, effect and more aesthetically pleasing.

    E&L $15.95:

    RTG Hk21 Butt Pad $39.95:

    I would go the "HK21 Rubber Buttpad" route!!!

    Agree on the 21 butt pad, but combine it with an HK21 buffer (available from RTG Parts) and that is when you get the significant reduction in felt recoil.

    The problem with the recoil is the excessive LOP that makes recoil rather unpleasant, also the fact that the buttplate sits to low.

    I made a video here to explain the sad ergonomics of the G3

    Very interesting observations, I would never have come to those, but that is why you are innovating for the G3 and not many of us are. Thanks for posting and your keeping the G3 as current as possible for what is certainly a well-aged platform.

    While I don’t currently own one, I did own a converted SR9 in the ‘90s and that LOP was a bear. Your solution looks great.

    Cheers!

    In terms of recoil management, I've always been a big fan of Bill Springfield's enhanced buffer:
    HK 91/clone fixed stock improved recoil buffer

    I see a great use with heavy buffers and enhanced solutions as they save the gun a lot.
    But I am unable to by feeling the recoil telling if the gun have that or that buffer when shooting with my stock

    My son traded me a "Heavy Buffer" for my Springfield Enhanced buffer.
    We both preferred the enhanced buffer's recoil reduction.
    For what it's worth.
