Terrible lighting today so I had to resort to an on board flash for now...

 

G3a1.... with wood furniture

 

 

That's a G3A3, actually. Nice one, nontheless! ;)

 

"(...)The G3A1 has a folding stock that hinges to the left  and a flip over rear sight.(...)"

G3a1 is the SADF and Rhodesian nomenclature for the weapon, the a3 came with a plastic stock and the plastic triangular fore grip, a4 a telescopic stock. The A1 was with original variant purchased in the early 60s, and the a2 was the variant with green jungle furniture, however; the sight is incorrect for the a1 by their nomenclature, it did have the flip up rather than the diopter..

Don't really know anything about Rhodesian or SADF nomenclatures... I was refering to H&K official nomenclature. The A1 had a folding stock and flip rear sight, as said. The A3, originally (as in the Portuguese armed forces in earlly 60's in Angola) came with wood hand-guard and stock, and later on with bakelite green hand-guard and stock. The triangular hand-guard is a modernized version, but it is still an A3. In official nomenclature.

Bottom line, teh "A" changes when refering to the combination of stock/rear sight:

 

A1 - folding stock/flip-up sight

A2 - folding stock/diopter (drum sight)

A3 - fixed stock (wood or bakelite)/diopter

A4 - retractable stock/dioper.

 

Again, in official H&K nomenclature.

Here is my MSG90 build version 2.0. Still needs a sniper style grip and possibly a different scope accompanied by a cheekpad. Also you can see evidence of the easy mod to fit a PSG1 upper receiver to a G3 lower receiver. I'm very pleased with it.

This thread could do with some more XM8.

All three are SRC.  The painted one is Gen 2 and is my test bed for whatever I'm gonna do to the rest.  The other two are Gen 3.

Always nice to see an XM8 for a change. Despite the fact that the whole XM8 project was cancelled, I've always thought it's a very interesting weapon. If only someone made a real polymer GBBR version :)
