About this mod

This mod adds three new .308 weapons to the game, based on the cut-content G3 assault rifle.

Permissions and credits
*** This weapon is now also available in a Mega-Pack with my other standalone weapons ***

If you've ever scrolled through my upload history, then you might've picked up on my fondness for .308 rifles, and of course, it was only a matter of time before I set my sights on one of the granddaddies of all modern .308s. For whatever reason, the decision was made to turn the G3 that was included in Fallout 3 into a 5.56mm weapon, so I took it upon myself to unf*ck it.

I started with the unused G3 assault rifle mesh and re-worked the proportions a bit, shortening the receiver and lengthening the magazine well. I then straightened out the magazine and widened it to make it look like a 20-round .308 mag. I also gave the magazine release paddle a more aggressive angle, and rotated the rear sight drum so that it can be used in true iron sights mode.

Gameplay-wise, these guns are fully automatic rifles chambered in .308. The three versions included are a standard-length rifle, a shorter-barreled carbine, and a stockless, short-barreled submachine gun. Each can be modded with a .44 Revolver scope, Hunting Rifle extended mags and a Sniper Rifle suppressor. I've also added the weapon to all the appropriate form lists and leveled item lists.

The weapon can be purchased from the Gun Runners or found in random loot drops. Of course, if you're feeling lazy, you can always use the following console commands (Substitute ## with the number of the mod in your load order):

player.AddItem ##000ADE 1 ;Gives 1 .308 Carbine
player.AddItem ##000AE1 1 ;Gives 1 .308 Battle Rifle
player.AddItem ##000DC4 1 ;Gives 1 .308 Submachine Gun

Extract all the files in the archive to your New Vegas data folder (which is the same folder where FalloutNV.esm is located) and then enable the ESP either in your mod manager of choice, or under "Data Files" in the launcher that runs when you start up New Vegas.
