Those who have been around TFB for a few years will surely remember the G29 Viper project from German GunWorks. They made an exceptional Haenel RS9 in .338 LM. German GunWorks has its roots in various conversions of firearms, which formed the basis of the company even before the trade in weapon accessories and firearms. The first weapon conversions took place on the basis of airsoft guns.
Today we’re going to have a look at their first project, from 2013. The project is a Heckler & Koch MR223 A1 and it was called “Keiler”. The base was a brand new H&K MR223. For the fun of it, they published photos of it in a competition for the “best modified Heckler & Koch” at H&K in the US. To their surprise, GGW won the first place, through mainly US voters.
