I think the G3/HK91 is a total pig of a rifle. Not that accurate, mangle the brass, weigh a ton, and damned fugly IMHO, can't think of a single thing to recommend them other than that they seem to be pretty reliable.

I could not WAIT to get rid of my HK 91. God the thing was heavy and didn't shoot that great.

If you don't mind the hardest kicking .308 rifle in history. I like them well enough though, and can tune them well.

G3.

Not pretty in the sense of an old wooden hunting rifle with a mannlicher stock or something, but not over the top spacy/tactical with picatinny rails everywhere and shit.

I dunno.

I thought they were badass till I owned one. BTW mine had something WRONG with it, it had this extra switch position on the fire safety switch where it would keep firing bullets till you took yer finger off the trigger.
