G3 Magazine Catch Button

There have only been a handful of occasions on which I was able to shoot a fully automatic firearm. Truth be told, there is just something a bit more satisfying about being able to hold the trigger down and let the lead spray freely. Though it was indescribably great, it was over faster than you would believe. Apparently, it doesn’t take very long at all to empty a 30 round magazine. Ordinarily, I would be hard pressed to come up with a situation in which this would present a noteworthy problem. However, when considering military operations, chances are you would probably like to reload your rifle fairly quickly – say, at the drop of a hat or the push of a button. Luckily, the Heckler & Koch G3 is equipped with a magazine catch button that allows you to remove and replace magazines quickly and easily.

The G3 magazine catch button is located on the right side of the magazine well and provides for quick and easy removal of the magazine. It is an original factory part made in Germany by HK.

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, including push-buttons. If a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com has a wealth of authentic, original factory parts from HK for the G3/HK91/PTR91. Not only are they readily available, but also they are cheap. Now is the time to take advantage.

Magazine Release Lever

Original G3s and early HK41s, a semi-automatic variant of the G3 for law enforcement, included a magazine release lever in addition to the magazine catch. This paddle-style magazine release is often said to be preferable to the magazine catch button. HK91s and similar clone rifles only have the push-button release. These rifles had to be in compliance with regulations set forth by the United States in regards to fully automatic firearms, which led to modifications being made to the lower receiver that were intended to prevent the installation of a fully automatic trigger pack. However, these modifications almost prevented the inclusion of the paddle-style magazine release levers.
