An armed British policeman takes aim in Hackney, London, Thursday, Jan. 2, 2003, on the eighth day of a police siege of a house where a gunman may be holding another man hostage. Police marksmen and negotiators have surrounded the house since Dec. 26, when a man shouted at officers from a window and brandished a gun as they tried to remove a car. The man shot at officers when they tried to storm the apartment.(AP Photo/Max Nash)

Excellent photo of a very rare configuration.  I believe this rifle to be a G3K with ambidextrous trigger group and PSG1 buttstock added.  It is somewhat rare for a G3 variant to have a pictogram ambi trigger group like this rifle has.

A 15-day standoff between police and a gunman holed up in a freezing London flat became Britain's longest-running domestic siege on Thursday, as government figures were released showing a big surge in armed crime.

Interesting posed photo of German SEK members with P7 pistol and that pesky variant of the MP5 (pesky because I don't know what it is officially called) with the permanent optical sight that I have referred to as the MP5GR for no better reason than that the 5.56mm rifles and machine guns featured in the GR Series page have this same optical sight, and no iron sights.

I captioned this photo "Chicken Wings Anyone?" for the way the standing operator has his right elbow raised at a ridiculously high angle.  Makes for a dramatic Hollyoodesque photo, but is poor technique.
