    An extra bolt-head is a great idea...as long as you have the replacement rollers and know how to measure bolt gap and change to the appropriate roller size.

    You may not know in advance what size rollers you'll need in the replacement bolt-head.

        Usually deal with his wife, I think. Very nice nice and knowledgeable lady.

        I've dealt with them quite a bit. She's a real sweetheart. Never in a hurry and just as nice as can be! A real pleasure in these days of ignoramusses and imbeciles.

            Welcome to War Rifles!! I try to get spare parts for most of my important weapons. You never know when the supply may dry up.

              I recently installed Trijicon replacement sights on my G-3. Ordered them from HK parts.net I got the set with the ghost ring rear sight and tritium front post. I really like them. I had a Millett DMS1-4 power scope mounted on it, but because of the collapsible stock, I found it difficult to get a fast sight picture, even after modifying the scope mount to get a little more eye relief.
              Anyhow, I just thought I'd mention it.
              By the way, it's good to be back after being away for a while. Several things had caused me to go awol, but Brian has talked me into coming back to where I belong. All is well now, and things have changed in both my life and my perspective. I'm a better man for it, and I hope to be around and able to support this site in the coming months. I have missed many of you.

                  G3 parts kit

                  Sarco has kits, everything but receiver. Navy model trigger housing, new barrel, rest described as exellent or new. Item #G3023, $495. Worth it in parts alone. Previously mentioned CTD stocks are a real bargain, couple I got are in great shape, one muckered up one they happily replaced, didn't even ask for the old one returned. Agreed on spare parts but mine have never broken a thing. Ever. That's my SHTF piece.

                    I have a cheap M14 extractor, but I was looking at the one that is sold in the Blue Press by Dillon. It advertises it will extract any round. Anyone have one that can speak to their usefulness?

                      I think I may have a spare like-new forend floating around as well as a spare stock. I had my G3 converted to a G3K (12.5" barrel, 4 pronged flash hider) and have both the (old) standard trigger group and the newer plastic group. Prefer the feel of plastic. Since I live in a "restricted", read communist, state, I would have problems, but mine was manufactured well pre-ban, so I can legally also have a collapsible stock.

                      I know some of you will say that a 12.4" barrel is too short for a 7.62 MBR, but this gun was intended as a CQB and passenger side SHTF door gun. I know in the sandbox, many operators preferred the MP-5 and it's variants for auto trips. To me there's nothing like a 7.62 throwing some serious lead downrange.

                      In the infamous 1986 shootout between two dirtbags Platt & Matix, I am convinces the FBI would have fared much worse had Matix had a 7.62 instead of a Mini-14 chambered in 5.56 Ken Royce (Boston T. Party) has a great breakdown on that shootout in Boston's Gun Bible, a must have for any gun enthusiast.
