  • How the G3 was made

    Six minutes worth watching.

    I like the music.
    How miserable that man is that governs a People where six parts of seven at least are poor, indebted, discontented, and armed. - William Berkley... Royal Governor of the Colony of Virginia (1670'ish).

      Thank you, it was a good video. Music at the first reminded me of Batman I think a remix with a few BAM and POW's might make it an internet sensation?

          That was a great video. Thanks, Herr Walther!

          Most of the machine tools and gages are obsolete today, but you could see the typical German obsession with quality in every step and process of the manufacturing of the G3. They took an inherently inexpensive to produce design and built it to very high levels of precision.

          I have a Century G3 and have always been impressed with how well it shoots. Not even Century's angry beavers could screw it up.

          A friend has the genuine H&K civilian version with multiple furniture sets and the .22 LR conversion kit from H&K. It's a precisely built, beautifully put together piece of mechanical artistry.

            They are wonderful rifles with that fanatical German attention to detail.
