    What do you guys think about running green furniture on them? I have seen photos of MKE issued rifles outfitted in green and thought it might be cool. However, there seems to be a very limited supply of wide green forearms.

    The HK33 never got a real decades long product improvement program like the M16 series had. As a result they seem kind of etched in stone in what is very close to their original 1960's era form. The G41 was probably a regressive design, which I consider inferior to the HK33, despite the best of intentions. Lipstick on a pig, and the pig was better looking without makeup.

    I think a fair comparison is a late 1960's/early 1970's M16A1 rifle with iron sights and aluminum mags. I'd take an iron sighted HK33 with it's OEM mags over that. That's my opinion. The M16A1's I have had experience with, both in the army and early on in my agency, were pretty bad.

    Navy Seals used HK33's in Vietnam, at a time when Special Forces and LRRP's had assembled rifle rods taped to their CAR-15 foregrips to clear catastrophic failures, while under fire. Whatever it's faults, the HK33 is robust and tolerant of abuse.

    "As promised, I brought her home tonight. Hopefully I can get to the range and consummate the relationship this weekend. Heavy, ergonomics that aren’t great, expensive magazines and parts... BUT 1000x sexier than any AR IMO. I have an A3 meat tenderizer stock for it and I just ordered the last 1/7 33k barrel in stock at Gatewood Supply, BUT I’m torn about it. This thing is in pristine condition for a gun manufactured in 1977"


    Please don't convert the new one.

    If I get a second HK33 clone, like a Zenith, I would want green furniture for it, if I could get them.

    Maybe Zenith can order some green furniture from Turkey. They'd sell all they could get, I bet.

    Very nice--- have you looked for the green, slimline forearm (or considered a cut down G3 one)???
