Ordered my PTR 91 today and want to know the cheapest/best place to get the wide HK hand guards.

Thanks in advance.

I'd check the parts section out at hkpro.com. That's where I got my factory HK wide forearm. The search function on that site is useless though.

I found a black wide forearm is a little tricky to find. Be patient. I waited three months to find mine. Strum, ARCOM Equip Exc. and HKpro are good place to go.

Thay seem to be selling somewhere aroud $75 right now and the the bipod another $75

I bought my wide forearm directly from JLD- Fair price $75.00 and week to get to me. Fits and looks perfect.

The POF forearms do work good, but if you want to get a bipod they seem to be tighter on actual HK forearms. That from my experience with my PTR trying a POF bipod on a POF handguard, a HK bipod on a POF handguard, and a HK bipod on a HK handguard. The only combination that didn't have side to side play when the bipod was not deployed was when using HK components. It wasn't unbearable or nonfunctional, but it got annoying having the bipod easily rotate out of the grooves. My friend had the exact same outcome with his century G3, and from a little research on the internet it seems to be the pretty commonly the norm. Some people get lucky though with the POF stuff being just as tight with the bipod not having easy side to side play when not deployed.

Just a "heads up" on replacing the JLD standard handguard with a wide one. You might want to count your US made parts. It seems like if JLD is selling a standard handguard configuration then they use a non-US hammer and/or sear. The wide handguards that JLD uses/sells are non-US. You can always swap out some of the other parts to satisfy the regulatory issues but people should be aware of this before they unknowingly do something that they shouldn't.
