    When these came out at a discount, they were often the preferred host for a build since they were going to be repainted anyway. You save $100 on the gun. I have a baby poop 93, and actually the paint grows on you, or maybe smears on you.

    An M40 painted by my Iraq / Affy Veteran buddy people send him sniper and "black" guns from all over the world for his desert camo

    I used to think snake myself when I saw his designs but after he told me he uses his girlfriends lace stockings for the patterns I can't get her legs out of my mind anytime I see his camo lol

    Sounds like an urban legend to me.

    I don't suppose there is any proof of this at all?

    Proof for a few hundred guns from the mid 80’s? Pre Internet? I was working in a gun shop as an HK authorized dealer (Maryland’s second largest) when these came out. That was the explanation at the time. Another question, why would HK make such a gun (paint) in very limited quantity, obviously costing much more to produce than a standard black gun, sell it at a discount, and not feature it in any of their literature (at least not that I can recall seeing much of any printed material)?

    Very plausible--- the Saudi's did use the "G3"--- though in semi-automatic, these camo HK91's could have been used for "demonstration" of the camo pattern and/or for "training" purposes for new soldiers to acclimate to the G3!!!

    OK fair -- it sure is strange. But on the other hand, its hard to imagine that the Saudis wouldn't just order G3s.
