When we think G3, we think Heckler & Koch but that wasn’t always the case. When the fledgling West German Army adopted the, now famous, roller-delayed rifle it was produced by not just H&K but another German arms manufacturer – Rheinmetall.
In this episode Matt examines the design, development and history of the G3 and Rheinmetall’s involvement in the Iconic Cold War rifle’s story. Check out Matt’s accompanying blog at https://armourersbench.com/2019/05/12/rheinmetall-g3/.
