    Very rightly said there isnt any thing wrong in G3 becoz when army is satisfied then what....
    and few of our members suggested that 5.56 caliber is better then why US and few others switching to 6.8 or ........

    if army really wants to chage G3 then PK-8 would be a better option...

    regards,

    G3 has a long range and its damn STRONG Turkish army will change it with a Turkish design rifle which Kalekalıp and MKE are working on because its not reliable in hard terrain conditions

    Its jamming, no matter you clean it everyday...

    But the new rifle will be 7.62x51 NATO too. Because 5.56x45 NATO ammo is completely worthless in hilly region of northern Iraq (Turkish Army's usual battleground)

    All the projects of army going well just need to focus on replacement of G3, Al-Khalid2 and armed Drones.

    Turkish Mehmetick is good option too. :agree:

    Mehmetcik1 was MKE's self project and it has cancelled, it was 5.56x45 but the new rifle will be 7.62x51 and it will also look like Mehmetcik1.

    New Turkish national rifle will use HK G36's patented gas-piston syestem... :cheers:

    If you want to replace G3 with a 5.56x45 rifle and you are also producing it yourself then quickest decision is HK33 rifle, Its most parts are same with G3s

    People dont like it on forums but i hear very good things about HK33 anytime i talk with a Turkish soldier that used it.

    You can clearly see the transparent magazine on HK33 above

    YEAH! someone understands me :) 5.56x45 and 7.62x39 rounds can never reach the power of 7.62x51 NATO or 7.62x54 Rus

    is it MP3A3 or G3A3 ? and why is 5.62? where you trying to say 5.56 or 7.62?

    Im confused, if 5.62 is a new ammo why you changed the standard? Model is similiar to HK33 :S

    You guys could go for the HK-417. Or the HK-416 from the above video. We are also going for a 7.62mm rifle in the future.
