Awesome rifle but the shitty Leupold scope and mount sort of ruin it.

Tijuana, March 2009: Mexico's military shows off the results of a raid on a party: assault weapons and the arrests of 58 people.

I like that pic. You have lots of different douchebag ARs and AKs on the table and the soldier is rocking a G3.

French GIGN Super Mag:


Note the special GIGN bipod with knurled sleeves on the legs and how the bipod is mounted right in front of the magazine well rather than on the forend tip.

Side view of a GIGN Arctic Warfare:


That's an excellent view of the GIGN bipod. This bipod is mounted on the forend tip, but note the bipod socket fitted just forward of the magazine. The only time I've seen that socket is on GIGN AWs and AWSMs.

FMLN Guerrilla

Portrait of an unidentified Salvadoran guerrilla as he holds a Heckler & Koch G3 assault rifle across his shoulders, El Salvador, September 1, 1983. At the time, the country was engaged in what became a 13-year Civil War between successive right-wing governments (backed by the US and others) and various armed guerrilla factions that eventually claimed over 75,000 lives before ending in 1992.
