REALLY?! WHERE HOW AND WHEN DID YOU GET IT?! If you own that gun and you can legally shoot it at a firing range, MAKE YOURSELF A YOUTUBE VIDEO! Seeing a guy with a genuine G11 shooting it on 3 burst then full auto, (If you can go automatic, but burst fire has a 2000+ Rate Of Fire!) is PURE PLATINUM!
yeah, altho it's more complicated than that, of course. The weapon was revolutionary in more ways than one, and so the R&D costs were huge. Then when it was finally ready the Bundeswehr couldn't afford it anymore, after the cost of German reunification. H&K was briefly owned by a British company, which was when they began the upgrade program on the SA80.
