The most common complaint I hear when it comes to Charging the CETME C308 variant of the Heckler and Koch G3 is the fact that many people complain that it is hard (OK it can be extremely hard) to Charge. Thus, I have to admit there is some validity to this common complaint. But I'm here to tell you don't fret and don't get discouraged. You have to take the time out to "break" the Rifle in. It is what it is.
Once you do that, you will find that the Charging Mechanism of the Rifle will decrease in stiffness. So with that being said, I took the liberty to make this quick video on how to properly Charge the H&K G3, PTR91 and or the Century Arms CETME C308. Now I want you to understand something, there is not "one way" to do something, there are many ways to execute this function. I urge you to get out of your comfort zone and explore other weapon systems and options.
Thanks for viewing and remember, train before you go to the range to bang.
