German G3 Scope Case
Each German G3 scope case from Keepshooting.com is a brand new, unissued German surplus item. As such, the cases are in impeccable condition, free from use and the wear, tears and stains that are characteristic of military surplus items.
The German G3 scope case measures approximately 9.5 inches by 4.5 inches by 2.5 inches and features a hard-shell plastic insert that is surrounded by a heavy-duty nylon covering. The nylon covering sports the unmistakable German Flecktarn camouflage pattern, a multicolor disruptive camouflage pattern that generally utilizes three or more colors. The covering has both a flap closure that is secured via a simple plastic buckle as well as a unique plastic attachment loop on the rear. Additionally, both the hard-shell liner and the nylon covering include a small grommet to allow the escape of moisture that may collect inside.
Another interesting aspect regarding the German G3 scope case is the fact that the NATO Stock Number (NSN) is printed on the underside of the closure flap. An NSN is a 13-digit numerical code that identifies all standardized materials of supply that are recognized by NATO countries. The NSN for the German G3 scope case is 8465-12-327-9248, which identifies it as a waffen zubeh tasche, which roughly translates to a "weapon accessory case." The "8465" identifies it as a piece of individual equipment while the "12" signifies that the piece is from Germany. The remaining digits are an item number.
