does that insurgent have any buddies who don't need their G3's either?

Congrats on your new weapon and the methods of its procurement

I guess the Shah must have really liked Germanic things. He was a shareholder in Daimler-Benz and was one of the driving forces behind the development of the Mercedes/Puch G-Wagen.

AK43 your right i usually am over on the files,

here's the background on the rifle

we had been getting intel on the insurgents moving the the hills from Muhallabia to Tal afar to avaoid detection since it dumped out right into the suriah neighborhood (insurgent stronghold, real bad place). so we humped into a position for target interdiction in the hills to the south east side of tal afar. night passed pretty uneventful about early morning we see two guys walking through the draws. one carrying an AK, the other a G3. once they came into range I fired with my M-14 (M-21 for you old guys)sniper rifle and took the guy with the G3 down. the other guy started to look around and move when the second round hit him and took him down. we linked up with our QRF and moved to the site where the bodies lay. we took pics and went through their back packs, inside we found the Night vision sight, a beretta model 12 sub gun, mags, bayonet and some other items of intrest. we gathered up the bodies and equipment and headed back to the FOB. the two ****heads were a syrian and jordanian we were told later. when time came to leave i did a commanders letter and brought the specific pieces back. were the rifle came from i dont know. it was the second G3 we had come across in as many weeks.

Awesome piece!!! I hope you can enjoy the rifle when you get back home.
