The search for a H&K G3 clone

    Steve Adelmann of Shooting Illustrated discusses his quest to find a decent H&K G3 clone …

    Though the heavily seasoned G3A3 I carried wasn’t accurized, a few simple modifications reconfigured it well enough for mountain fighting without sacrificing reliability. Clumsy, heavy and not exactly ergonomic—especially for lefties—the G3 family still managed to carve out a spot in the nostalgic section of my little brain. I decided to add a variant to my collection, but I wanted a solid shooter that wouldn’t set me back two months’ pay, so I turned to the replica market.

    The article is well worth reading.
