    C93 wooden forearm conversion questions

    For those that have converted an HK/Cetme wooden forearm to be used on a C93/Hk93/33 clone to replace the wide plastic factory one, at what length did you cut the wood? I'm planning on keeping the rear portion in tact and modifying (shortening) the front end only. I can see that you have to re-profile some of the wood to fit back into the metal end cap but what's the overall length of the finished piece? Thanks in advance.

    Update to above posting. I finished my project and have dimensions if someone needs them to convert a std cetme wood forearm to fit a c93.This is my first attempt at clipping and pinning too.100_5017.jpg100_5019.jpg

    If you had asked yesterday I could have gone and looked at the reference one I kept around when I did lots of these. I had to come back to work though, so I'm 100 miles from the shop.

    When in doubt, cut it a little long and sneak up on it. Kind of a pain, but the best way to get it right. Also a good way to ensure that the front cap isn't too tight on the wood.

    Just went and looked at my old photobucket account, I thought I had pictures of the way I cut the wood down for the cap, but I can't find them. Its pretty easy if you have a router table.

    That looks good with the wood forearm on it.

    Are you going to change it over to a wood grip as well?

    Probably not. I went with this grip housing because I liked the selector markings
