General Information[edit | edit source]
The G3A3 is a selective fire, roller-delayed, blowback action battle rifle and a well-known variant of the G3 battle rifle. The G3 is designed by the German company Heckler & Koch in 1956 and adopted by the German Army as the standard service rifle from 1959 to the mid-1990s when it got replaced by the HK G36. Many variants had been created out of the G3, most famously the G3A3, and the G3 is used by many countries around the world. The G3A3 is currently used by two countries: Greece and Portugal, as the standard service rifle.
The G3A3 has drum sights, a fixed plastic buttstock, and a plastic slim, ventilated version and wide handguard that does not contact the barrel. The G3A3 is mainly made out of metal, steel, and plastic. The G3A3 can use either steel or aluminium 20-round box magazines. The G3A3 uses 7.62x51mm NATO cartridges.
