Necroposting to the 10th degree right now. However I got some of those German reworked by Yugo. K98k stocks similarly mentioned in this thread, looking for upper handguards and the ones on Numrich no longer mention Yugoslavian.
Would it be item# 7280B?
Thanks Stan, these were sold to me as Yugo modified German stocks, therefore i'm assuming they are shorter by 1/2". I suppose the real test would be to try and fit my original german barrel in one and see where the handguard lines up, based on my understanding from your post regardless if I go with a German barrel or Yugo I will still need the shortened HG in order for the band to line up.Not sure about that number. The number listed as the correct hand guard for the modified Yugo stocks they sell is #878170. If you look at the listing for their modified (shortened)Yugo stocks it gives that number to use with it.
As you might know, some Yugoslavian refurbs kept the original German barrel and will fit the standard German stock. The rifles that received the 1/2" shorter Yugoslavian made replacement barrel will use the modified stock and hand guard.
