Those Germans, Belgians, and Austrians Sure Know How to Make a Fine Firearm Steven K. Ledin, April 10, 2015
Undeniably, the countries of Germany, Belgium, and Austria really know how to make some of the best firearms in existence.
And it's hard to beat an H&K P7 M13 for a carry gun. Squeeze-cocker, cock-squeezer, combat staple gun, call it what you will. One of the finest machines ever made.
Top rifle is an FN SCAR Heavy .308 with OPMOD EOTech HHS-1, Steiner DBAL I2 IR and visible green lasers, and an InForce 500 lumen weapon light. Middle gun is a customized HK 416 D .22LR, and bottom is a ridiculously accurate 1/4 MOA Steyr SSG .308 with an older Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20×50 scope with Rapid Z 1000 reticle.
Pistol on the left is a favorite carry gun, a Glock 19 with Crimson Trace Lasergrip and Light Guard. The H&K P7 M13 on the right and above still leaves me speechless.
