I have had this G3 for some time and have been unable to clearly figure out what it is. It's a century build for sure with a FMP reciver but other than that I can't say. It has HK proofed parts but I think it may have some Rhodiesan/FMP parts. Looks like a US barrel as it had no proofs, but it looks like a sewer pipe like a surplus Rhodiesan. Can anyone give more insight?

I bought one of them new in 2002. It was a Century build with a FMP receiver. Nothing special, typical Century build with a welded on comp that was similar to a HK flash hider, as it was built during the ban. It worked OK, but I sold it when JLD started building PTR91's. GARY

I suppose that if it looks like a mix master that's what it is.

Typically they were portuguese kits. The "indep" receiver is excellent. Well worth the cost of replacing barrel with a new RCM.

I have one of those. Bought it in the mid 90's. I replaced the furniture and grip housing. I also removed the pinned on muzzle brake. It is a very good shooter. Mine has the original barrel.

Depending on the level of rebarrel you want (refinish included?) you may double the price above to have it installed. Check with Ghillebear @ PCS for better rates.
