About The Heckler & Koch G3
The Heckler & Koch G3 is a NATO battle rifle in 7.62x51mm developed in the ‘50s. Its origins can be traced back to the end of World War II. The rifle is a selective-fire automatic that uses a roller-delayed blowback system, with a two-piece bolt assembly containing a breech and bolt carrier. It is hammer-fired, with a 3-position trigger mechanism that is also the manual safety. It can be fitted with an optional 4-position safety/fire selector group. The G3 is a modular weapon system that can easily be changed into different configurations.
About The H&K MR223
The H&K MR223 is a .223 Remington-caliber, short-stroke gas-system rifle developed for military uses. It features an adjustable buttstock, free-floating barrel, and technology that makes it accurate, reliable and easy to handle. This semiautomatic is the civilian version of the HK416, to which it is very similar, specs and design-wise. While the gun is modular, portions of it are not interchangeable to make it impossible to convert into a military weapon. It is marketed in the US as the HK MR556.
About The M70 AB2
The M70 AB2 is the Zastava M70, an assault rifle developed and produced in Serbia, based on modified AK-47 and AKM assault rifles. The M70 became the Yugoslav People’s Army’s standard issue weapon in the 1970s. Air-cooled, magazine-fed and selective fire, this rifle is also marketed as a modern sporting rifle in the USA, with some modifications.
