I believe the G3 stamped EBO rifles were pre 1989 rifles. They only imported them for a short while before the were stamped SAR3 and only 500 were imported with that stamping.

SN @ 05000-05199 (left receiver- SN; right receiver- G3 7.62MM/SPRINGFIELD ARMORY USA/GENESEO, IL- no "MADE IN GREECE")
SN @ 05200-05499 (left receiver- SN; right receiver- G3 7.62MM/SPRINGFIELD ARMORY USA/GENESEO, IL/MADE IN GREECE)

Unfortunately I do not know the exact month and year the import of the G3 stamped rifles occurred. If you have a serial number you can contact SA, they will be able to tell you exactly when the rifle arrived.

I will confirm hkshooter's statement--- at least through 05168, there was no "MADE IN GREECE"--- the lowest number that I have seen with "MADE IN GREECE" is 05196!!! :)
