My V93 - Now with wood! UPDATED 3-12-09!

Was playing with the camera earlier and thought I would post up some pics of my V93 with it's new addition, a
modified G3 forearm.

This was my first attempt at fitting one and I'm pretty happy with the results. I made it just a tad on the
short side but it doesn't seem to affect function at all. It was a practice run to see how hard it would
be to do it. I plan to find a nicer one and refinish it along with a matching buttstock. Then, I'll fabricate
a wood grip from another G3 buttstock so that the wood matches fairly close.

So, what'cha guys think?

(btw, pay no attention to my ugly couch! :D)

I like it. Adding wood furniture to the 90 series adds character.
Now for the buttstock....

I do love the StG and had noticed a similar look but I didn't set out for it. Actually, I just like wood. Plus, the wood forearm is lighter than the HK wide I had on there. Any weight reduction is a nice bonus. It's also cooler in the AZ sun than the black plastic.

We have that problem here on really hot days

I was shooting at Webb and we had our rifles on the bench, it was like 98 degrees with a lot of humidity and the damn things got so hot from the sun we couldnt hardly hold on to the forearms

Same thing for me. During a match when it was about 110 I pulled my rifle to my cheek and it felt like I had touched a hot stove. Ouch! Thankfully the red dot saved me from having to put my cheek against it for the remainder of the stage.

Very nice. You're wood gives me wood. Forever-A-Soldier, your's is incredibly sexy as well. And for what it's worth I believe that I too have that couch. I got mine from an old roommate though.

I think we have the same couch ha ha ha ha. But my wife picked it out what's your excuse
Same here. I liked my other ugly couch better but I came home one day and bingo, there it this one was. It's not as comfortable as my old one. :(

I like it, good start, but may I suggest to "de-modern" the rifle?
A wood buttstock and p-grip (as you are working on) are great,
metal trigger housing and a Model 1 or 2 staight tube Hensoldt would
help and lastly a early G3 flash hider... and a 40 round magazine...

NICE wood grip btw - are you making them? Lmk if so and what you are asking :)

I'm a guy caught between modern and old school. My V93 actually sports a Millet DMS-1 scope now instead of the fakepoint and I just can't give up my modern optics.

On the grips, I wish I had the talent and patience to make them. It was made by John Downey. I started a thread in the "Heads Up" section in case anyone else was looking for one. Here is a link to it: HK/CETME Wood Pistol Grips He charges $60 shipped for the unfinished version like mine or $75 shipped for a completely finished version.
