No German rifles for Pakistan.
And in AK series, 107 is so far the best, in assault catagory (my opinion). In general, rifles by Italy are also not bad.
I know that we aren't buying anything German but, is Germany not selling us weapons anymore?
And yes, the Beretta ARX200 is a good replacement as a battle rifle.

Germany announced that no more H&K rifles for NON-EU. So forget it. And luckily we have other better choices.

G3 should be replaced with another battle rifle like HK417 or FN Scar H, as battle rifles generally provide advantages, especially on border skirmishes on the LOC.

Type 56 can be replaced with anything more modern in the AK platform, and according to the knowledge available, the Pakistan Army is most probably going for AK-103.
(Personally I'd prefer AK-15.)
More reasonable 7.62x52 NATO platform would be MPT-76.

MPT-76 is again yes a battle rifle.
However its record is uncertain, it still hasn't entered in service with the Turkish Army even completely.
I doubt that we'll be able to get our hands on it but Pakistan has expressed interest in it. Lets see.

I'm not dismissing it mate. It is a good gun, all I'm saying is we should wait 2-3 years and see how reliable it is before considering it.
Yes they should wait for 2-3 years. But are we speaking 2-3 years form now? Or after 10 years? because there is no progress by POF on their battle rifle concept. Not even a single unit has been given lighter and compact variants of G-3 for tests let alone PK-18.

Just read MPT-76 and MPT-55 are in service by regular troops and commandos in Syria.

Strictly speaking, both are 7.62....which shows our emphasis on a heavy bullet able to inflict massive damage...

one of my SSG mates, he lost an eye due to 5.56...he had M4.....a firefight had just ended, all the enemy dead were hit by SSG's M4.....suddenly one of the guys (despite getting about 4 shots in his torso), in his dying throes, managed to let loose a shot towards my mate who detected him at the same time.....both fired at the same time, my mate lost his eye, the other lost his life finally.....

7.62 has advantages, it packs a massive punch......good for strong defence.
Found the following clip, the incident is mentioned midway through:
