At this point, it is no secret. We here at Keepshooting.com are big fans of the G3 rifle platform in all of its known configurations. Whether it is the G3, G3A3, HK41, HK91, PTR91 or one of the many others, we love it. Okay, maybe we are not the biggest fans of the CETME. And maybe the fanaticism around the office is limited to me. But there is no denying the greatness that is the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle. Why else would we carry just about every component of the rifle? We have G3 sears, G3 buffer springs, G3 triggers, G3 locking roller holders, G3 rear sight washers and many more. You name it and we probably have it. In fact, you can almost build an entire G3 rifle from scratch from parts found on our website alone. How cool is that?
Well, add another part to the list because Keepshooting.com now carries the G3 steel trigger group. The G3 steel trigger group is an original surplus part from Germany manufactured by HK. Needless to say, the trigger group is a very important component on the G3 as it houses a number of the moving parts that keep the rifle operational. You may be pleased to hear the every G3 steel trigger group also includes an olive drab pistol grab as well as a selector switch with settings for safe, semi-automatic and full auto.
G3 Steel Trigger Group
As noted, the G3 steel trigger group is an original factory component made in Germany by HK. These trigger groups were stripped from service rifles used during the 1950s, which means you are not only getting a complete, fully-functional trigger group, but a piece of history as well. Unlike the Navy-style trigger groups that are commonly found today, the housing for these trigger groups is constructed using steel as opposed to polymer. These are the trigger groups that were originally found on the G3A3 variant. On the G3 rifle, the trigger group is mounted to the receiver as well as the buttstock via the lower locking pins. Each steel trigger group comes with one olive drab pistol grip mounted to the frame. This component is extremely important to the functionality of the G3 as it houses all of the fire controls, including the trigger, sear, hammer and selector switch.
Spare parts and accessories are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. This is especially true of the trigger group, which houses all of the fire controls. Keeping this component of the rifle in working order should be made a top priority. 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. Those with an interest or need for any of the parts and accessories offered should realize that now is the time to take advantage of this offering.
