Apparently this rifle is used by the Turkish military. But what is it?
The guy to the right,looking right has a G3 style rifle
Some look like FALs but probably G3s
H&K G3 or a copy
Trigger control you gnat!
Hammer of Thor.
You don't want to be down range
All look to be G-3 (PTR-91) or copies of! Could also be very late C.E.T.M.E. or conversions of!
H&K G3 with 30 rounders
Clearly G3, not PTR or CETME. Made in Turkey by MKE on HK tooling for the Turkish military (and also for export and civilian sales, including in U.S.)
They look beat to ish.
I want one. Had a DSA FAL for a while and didn't really care for it. The HK seems like a tested platform and I like the ergos better than the FAL.
But then my heart wanders back to a sweet Springfield M1A Scout Squad I once had and I'm lost again in op-rod land...
Once upon a time I had an SLR of my very own - the UK licensed version of the FAL. But that was long ago.
Funny how my gubmint took that off me, but didn't take away the one that I was issued with to go along with the funny-coloured clothes they made me wear.
Those are AR-15s and Glocks. Trust me. I work for the media.
223 mm ARs and .9mm glocks, most likely
Now that I take another look,I think your right.
I have one of those media charts that show what glocks look like.
AK-15s or AR-47s definitely.
MY chart says that they are RPG and SAM-7s. Assault rifle carbine launchers, with bits that go up, and rounds.
Great,at least no barrel shrouds
Don't concern yourselves gentlemen. If they get really scared they have their safe spaces now.
For years Turkey was manufacturing G3s under license as the Mehmetcik C3, officially they use some 5.56 abomination but like Mexico with their FX-05 Xiucoatl they just don`t have the industrial base necessary to manufacture the amount needed to outfit their entire military. Ironically, Mexico also manufactures the G3 under license.
I think their new adopted standard issue rifle is a 7.62 piston HK417-ish thing with a carry handle and a weird front handguard.
