My wife's dad just bought a g3 I was just wondering what ur thoughts on it were. Its in 308
An H&K or a CIA type clone?
The G3 is a 7.62mm battle rifle developed in the 1950s by the German armament manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH (H&K) in collaboration with the Spanish state-owned design and development agency CETME (Centro de Estudios Técnicos de Materiales Especiales).
Daddy has one, awesome gun. Fun as hell to shoot.
Yea I'm pretty excited to go home next and shoot it
Is it an H&K or a Century clone?
To be honest I. Not sure
It is a century clone
Are they a decent gun? ?
i wish I could get my hands on a legit G3 and not a clone the clone would be ok but ya loose cool points when it doesn't say H&K
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
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.
