History of HK G3A3
During the 1950s West Germany, like the other new NATO member countries, faced the need for rearming its army for the newest common 7.62x51mm NATO caliber small arms. Through some of the obstacles of G1 to G2 rifle apply, finally, Germany bought the manufacturing license for CETME rifle from Spain and transferred it to the Heckler and Koch(HK) company. And this is the first mass production firearm of the HK factory, It is also the beginning of a legendary generation.
HK slightly modified the design of CETME rifle, and in 1959 the Bundeswehr (W.Germany Army) finally adopted the CETME / Heckler -Koch rifle as G3 (Gewehr 3 – Rifle, model 3). The G3 rifle is a selective fire, magazine fed rifle, built using roller delayed blowback action, built using as many stamped parts as possible.

Total of more than 50 countries during the last 40 years issued it to its forces, could be seen in every main conflict of the worldwide, Today, G3 and a wide variety of derivative firearms are still in service or manufactured in many countries, with different purposes and calibers, such like 9mm MP-5 submachine guns, 5.56 mm HK 33 assault rifles, 5.56mm and 7.62 mm HK23 and HK 21 machine guns, PSG-1 sniper rifles etc.
Until 1995 that 5.56x45mm NATO caliber G36 rifle replaced the general firearm of Bundeswehr (Germany), the G3 in various modifications served as a general issue firearm and become an icon of 20-century 7.62mm caliber firearm, not only for German Armed forces but also for many other countries.
