The MP5 and 33 stocks flew out in a matter of minutes. Would have grabbed one of each. But the G3s are still in stock for $299. Grabbed one for myself. Pretty sure they will go fast:

I expect prices to drop about 50% when the market gets saturated, the Turkish Lira is in the toilet compared to the USD so the margins on these are likely ridiculous right now.

Got the MKE G3 folder in. Overall very nice. No go on the PTR though. Lower has a sheet metal tab that the stock won't clear. Guesing I have to pick up another lower for it to work. This is a first time for me with an HK G3 stock. Guessing I need a lower to fit?

Make sure your grip housing is not hanging down a tad, maybe a tap with a soft mallet right in the offending metal to see if it will seat up a hair. My HK collapsing stock is TIGHT getting on there!
Will do. But it is super tight. I have an older SEF housing that has been clipped and pinned. I may see if it works.

They’ve been teasing one
Could you elaborate please? What have you read?

I've been pining for a 93 for a while now. I think about slowly buying the parts and sending them to Jeff at PCS again. Used, complete bolt assemblies are getting stupid expensive. I could buy another C93 but, well, it would be nice to have something really nice. Do you remember what did the last batch of MKE rifles sold for?
There's a 33 kit on GB now for 1800 bucks, no barrel and the only US part is a receiver flat. Crazy but that's where we're heading.

They also make the rifle very compact, and are solid. It lets you get to the irons, unlike a Spuhr. I have a Comp M4 on a PCS built G3 I am playing with.
Ghilliebear’s build has way less recoil than my PTR, and while recoil is not a problem the collapsing stock just doesn’t feel like a Garand or FAL- feels weird in the shoulder.
If you have all the parts, changing stocks takes only seconds.

My HK93 came new with the A3 stock. That was quickly removed and replaced with a solid stock. Of course, I kept the A3 because it's color matched to the blue/grey on the rifle. I never really liked the look of the collapsible stock on anything other than the MP5.

In my experience, the only guys that like those stocks are guys that have never shot with those stocks. I include myself in that assessment of the former, and the latter. Absolutely horrible. But they do look badass.
Had a friend with a SBR'd PTR .308 pistol with a folder. I ran a mag through it. Yep, just a piece of steel getting jammed in your cheek and rattling your skull....But they do look cool ;)

Everyone is a little bit different, but speaking for myself and myself only, I actually prefer the G3A4 metal collapsing stock over the fixed plastic G3A3 stock, at least if I am shooting iron sights.

Yes I am probably weird in that regard as usually for people it seems to be the other way around when it comes to this stock.

Had a Fleming conversion HK51 as a patrol rifle in a rural western county many years ago. This is a G3 with a 10" barrel, collapsing stock, select fire. Also had the .22 conversion kit. What a hoot that was on full-auto. Came the night when I shot a coyote without ear pro (me, not the coyote). The fire ball was epic. The coyote spun around, fell down, and blood came out his ears. I spun around, fell down, and blood came out my ears. Sold the gun.

I've said it until I've worn it out, the Dragons have zero practical use and at least for me, they aren't even fun to shoot. Look cool as hell, completely useless. People can't seem to wait to get one then after they do they fire a mag or two then it sits or they sell it. 42gr or smokeless powder and 50,000 psi creating a fireball three feet around a foot from your face is less than zero fun.

Atlantic just jacked up the price on the stocks. Obviously based on the intense interest and the assurance that the entire shipment will sell out in 15 minutes. $329 now. Still a steal compared to what a used HK item will sell for.
