German HK G36 in Georgia

I think it appeared first couple years ago on militaryphoto.
But now they making a big surprise out of it

http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,...glisch-347-rdf

Georgian elite forces fighting Russia in the breakaway region of South Ossetia were illegally armed with German assault rifles in a blatant violation of Germany's arms export laws, according to a TV report.

I wonder if these came from the Germans? I have several H&K weapons purchased here in the US and I have seen "clones" of much of H&K's stuff.

Cept thats not the export model thats the military scope group for the military ones. Though it could easily be a clone of a G-36K.

We have very strict rules regarding weapons exports, or put it this way, we're a tad less hypocritical in this field than most countries.
We don't export weapons in countries which may use it against their minorities/civies, human rights, yadda yadda

Example:
If Turkey wanted to buy G3s and Leo2s from us, we wouldn't allow it 'til they resolved their problem with the kurds.
That's the letter of the law.....
.....reality is we gave it to them anyway to strenghten an important NATO partner.

As for the G36s, any idea who produced them?
Has anybody aquired a license for the production non-export models?

Both Pakistani and Turkish manufacturers have earlier license agreements with H&K.
