I have watched a guy run a clone through a 3 Gun event w/o issue. Other than that I have no other experience. The G3 has always been on my "cool" list so I had to ask.

if i'm not mistaken, real g3's are capable of full-auto fire.

i had an hk-91 (foolishly sold) in the 80's...i recently bought a cai cetme to appease my guilt. i love the gun as a reloader and bullet caster. the fluted-chamber, recoil-operated system lets me neck-size cases and shoot cast bullets at 1800-2000 fps that drop the empties at my feet.

Unless you live in a class 3 state you're most likely referring to a G3 type rifle, HK91 SAR3 PTR91 Cetme C etc. I've got a low serial # Cetme which functions flawlessly. My only complaint are that the Cetme rear sight isn't windage adjustable and since I reload I have to chase my brass 50 feet. Other than that i can hit tennis balls at 200 yards all day and look cool doing the "HK Slap".

You could do a lot worse.

Until very recently, they were

considered by many to be the

pinnacle of battle rifle

technology.

And what is the pinnacle considered today?

IMHO, the leading edge has always been Russian

armaments. They've discarded more better, original

designs in a decade than we see in a century.

Not that I personally prefer it, but the AN94

is hard to beat, for one...

While we were futzing around with the M14's dubious

evolution, they shelved over a dozen separate, new,

functional, potentially superior designs to the AKM because they

had a strong infantry weapon, and felt, overall, that "the

perfect(better? DNK Russian) is the enemy of the good".

American weapons and associated electronics have also

made the G3, while still state-of-the-art, obsolete as a

"leading edge" weapon.

(You did ask...)

For a simi-auto .308 it is cheap enough. I have been looking around at all the options, not sure if there are many aftermarket options for it though.
