    G3KA4 SAS and MARITIME SNIPER TEAM USE

    Found some reference to Brits using G3K's. Thought this was interesting since there are so many negative opinions about G3K's on some internet sites.

    Quote from article-
    "Depending on the mission, they may use a designated marksman rifle (DMR). This is a semi-automatic, scoped rifle, chambered in 7.62mm x 51mm NATO. MSTs have used variants of the Heckler and Koch G3KA4 rifle in this role,"

    Interesting find, I wasn't aware of the use of the G3K by the Royal Marines. I knew that the SAS back in the late 80's decided to swap from the HK53 to the G3K to get more penetration against vehicles to stop the bad guys (IRA back in the day). I also seen armed Police units in the UK sporting the G3K's.

    Thanks for sharing your findings.
