With all the other parts we see from Greece (EBO), why no mags for HK91 / G3 from Greece?

No problem--- the magazine finish is similar to the 1980's HK91 magazines--- a somewhat flat medium-dark gray!!! :biggrin:
I will only presume that the Greeks did a short run of magazines but, due to the cost, contract magazines were less expensive and/or Greece may have changed arsenal weaponry shortly thereafter and ceased production of the G3/G3 magazines. :wink:
Any EBO experts here? :confused:

EBO is now known as EAS (Ellinika Amyntika Systimata) which means Hellenic Defense Systems and still manufactures the G3 under contract for its armed forces. Some special units use the m4/m16 family and they're supposedly acquiring G36 family weapons as well but the G3 is still very much the mainstay rifle for active duty personnel and those completing just their mandatory term of service.

Thanks!
It was actually this photo that prompted me to ask the question.
