Who makes the best G3 clone? I want one but have to save my money. While I am saving I want to learn about them. I have ruled out a Cetme. I just don't want to get a turd like I am hearing about.

JLD is the one I am leaning towards. I have not seen one up and close bit it looks nice and well built from the pictures I have seen.

I would like a shooter but don't ever care to mount a scope on it.

Were is a good source for real H&K G3/91 mags?

I may sell one of my Russian SKSs to help pay for it sooner. :thankyou:

just an opinion and a short story.
I got a cetme and it went back to century 4 or 5 times, before they totaly screwed it up. It would honestly fold a 308 case over in the breach before chambering. misaligned pos. finaly they sent me another one and it is great it has NEVER missed a beat. it is one of my favorites. it is very rugid.
dont get me wrong I am not selling anything , but the first batch was poor at best but they changed theyr assembaly method and they are a lot better.

There are some good receivers out there now that are stamped in Portugal and welded here in the U.S. and count as a U.S. part. Watch out for the Hesse receivers although I have one that is fine they are a crap shoot. Here is a great link on what to look for when buying one, and although it is about CETMEs 90% applies to H&Ks.

I have been looking and Ohio Rapid Fire is looking like the best one so far. They use a JLD reciever with HK parts.

That is a sweet looking rifle. I have to wait until tax time. Can you get that with a green stock set and a stamped trigger group from ORF?

I have a "G3" with a Century receiver. Is there a big difference or any at all between a clone and a real deal HK? Thanks

I think that may be accurate. The last round out of the mag would always jam. But I bought some new mags and just have to find the time now to go shoot. My barrel gets really hot too after about 40rds too. Do they make solid front grips for 91's like they do for MP5's?

FYI, ORF has recently acquired a set of original HK dies for stamping out G-3 recievers. Production should start soon and complete rifles should be available. Contact them for dates and details. :thumbup1:

I someone could help me with posting a pic, I'll show you my G3's.

Both are CIA and both are FLAWLESS, and accurate.



This may work. If thats the way to post pics, it seams ........overly complex.
