If you are a fan of classic firearm videos then you are really going to enjoy the video below.
This video comes from the Bundeswehr archives and it details every step involved in the iconic G3’s production. The video even gets into the nitty gritty details of things like spring manufacturing and factory accuracy testing. It’s really interesting to watch the amount of handbuilt and fit components of the gun. There is a big difference from today’s modern CNC machined components and the hand-welded and stamped G3 parts of the 1960’s.
