Ran across a set of tan/honey brown colored furniture and had never seen it before. Does anyone know who used these?

Thanks!

Do you have an example of the reciever remnants of these Saudi g3's? Or all the variations?

nope. Rumor is that Lew Horton brought in the parts. I've only seen it in pictures.

I Think in Pat's T-48 pics from Quantico there are some Saudi G3s if I remember correctly.

Not mine, but I found it interesting! No money to spend now with my portuguese ar10 on the way. But man I would love to see this built right!

Iran and Saudi had the Tan/Brown stocks. The Brown plastic lower is Iranian.

Iran was licensed to produce HK's. They sold rifles to Africa. So if you buy a Tan/Brown stock HK from Africa it is most likely Iranian.
