The G3A3 is a roller-delayed blowback battle rifle designed in West Germany in the late 1950s that served as the main service rifle for West Germany well into the 1990s. The rifle has seen significant export overseas and is produced under license in a number of countries. It fires the full-sized 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge, which packs a significant punch and still retains much of its power out to further ranges. Automatic fire is not recommended due to the significant recoil produced by the cartridge.

General Information[]

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 was 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 Iran as their 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.
