Soldier Uses Prosthetic Leg As Monopod

Talk about adapting:

Unfortunaly no none ever sources their pics, so I have no idea where this is from.  I assume it is some sort of wounded warrior program.

The gun appears to be a HK G3A3.

    Can anyone gander a guess as to why he might be using a G3? I don’t think we ever adapted that rifle in any form.

      Defense Industries Organization makes them in Iran and are used all over middle east almost as much as ak-47. You can find them all over the battle field. hope this helps

  2. They might found it as a battlefield discard so probably foreign weapons familiarization would be my guess.

    Speculation over at Texas Gun Talk is that this was a wounded warrior shoot. Apparently Sgt. Butterworth was medically retired.

    TinEye brings up a Chinese website, looks like a news site but I’m at work so I’m not risking Chinese websites.

    If you don’t know TinEye, you can either upload files to the website and it’ll look for them, or get the Firefox attachment and search from the browser. Extremely useful tool for web sleuthing.

    OK I got home and finished researching this. It is indeed a Chinese article about US troops, with prostheses, on active duty in Afghanistan. Hopefully the link works, even if Google translate is spotty.
