This is a very rare pre 1989 ban SAR 3 over stamp 8 G3
Very interesting history on the 3 over stamp 8 rifles.
Manufactured in Greece and distributed by Springfield Armory. The SAR 3/8 is the Greek version of the H&K G3 assault rifle.
Although known for their M1A rifles, Springfield Armory did import H&K clones from Greece. These rifles however are not to be looked down upon as cheap knockoffs - the Greek made rifles were built on H&K machinery by H&K trained technicians.
Originally when imported as the SAR 3, the 1989 Assault Weapons Ban by George Bush sr. banned many rifles by name and designation. A large shipment
of SAR 3 rifles were already at the customs dock as the ban went into effect, so to bypass the ban, Springfield Armory sent employees to stamp over the 3 and turn it into an 8.
Thus the SAR 8 replaced the SAR 3, being importable for a little while longer until Springfield Armory stopped carrying them.
This comes with original box, manual, 5 steel mags ( 4 are still in wrappers ) 2 aluminum mags, bipod, 2 double mag pouches, original thumbhole stock.
Also included but not in pictures are an additional 6 aluminum G3 mags from 1979.
Has threaded barrel, original flash hider, adjustable thumb screw rear sight and ejection port buffer.
THIS IS NOT the later SAR 8, or the SAR 8 with the cast receiver and pinned fake flash hider.
