Photo Of The Day: TFB’s favorite shots (pun intended) served on a daily basis. Today we have various images from 3E EOS, or 3E Elektro Optik Sistemler, from Turkey. Above you can see a “boosted” Heckler & Koch HK417 with a PARS thermal sight and a DLIRIL multifunction laser device.

In our Recap: Enforce Tac and IWA OutdoorClassics 2022, we promised to dig deeper into 3E’s products, and we hope to be able to review some of their latest offerings later this year.

The PARS 635 is an advanced thermal weapon sight with the latest technological innovations, specially designed for direct or plug-and-disconnect use in residential combat and medium range marksmanship. The PARS thermal weapon scope family, which has proven itself in the field, offers the opportunity to dominate the night with high image quality. It is designed to give the highest performance even in the toughest combat conditions with its reinforced and light body structure.

    How do you guys think the Turkish MPT-76-MH rifle stacks up to the U.S. picked Sig's next generation rifle?

      @Alex Let me rephrase that question: How would the SIG SPEAR stack up against an HK 417 clone?
      Probably not vey well.

      You got an 80,000 PSI round coming out of a 13" barrel, moving a 135 grain pill at 3000fts. So, you basically got the same muzzle energy as a 7.62 at about the same recoil.
      So....then just do a 308, coming out of a 16" barrel?
      Why do a 80,000 PSI round that'll eat up that rifling and gas system in half the time, just so you can cut 3 inches off the barrel?

      I'm sure a SIG fanboy will come along and tell me about how SIG uses adamantium alloys and they have infinite barrel lives and how the 277 reoils so much less....

      but at the end of the day, I'll take the HK 417 clone.

      I actually like that Turkish rifle too, it doesn't have the cheese grater rails on all sides. If it comes to the market priced like a Turkish shotgun, I might pick one up.
