H&K G28 Deployed in Afganistan

    This photo shows a Bundeswehr solider carrying the new H&K G28 DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle) that was officially adopted by the German Army late last year. The G28 is derived from the H&K 417 and features a short 16″ barrel and 3-20×56 Schmidt & Bender scope.

    It is a decent upgrade over the older H&K G3A3 rifles which are still widely deployed …
