POTD: Heckler & Koch G11 in the Gray Room

    The Heckler & Koch G11 is probably the most famous and recognized non-production rifle ever.

    Even today, over 50 years since its development began, the G11 still looks like a firearm of the future.

    These fantastic photos are from Heckler & Koch’s Gray Room, and taken by Jeremy Tremp (Offensive Marketing Group).

    The G11 has an Integrated optical sight, which I think was developed by Hensoldt AG.
