Just got my first two kits in the mail yesterday. They are Romanian kits. What does the big Red "G" mean?

Thanks.

There's a big long thread on it somewhere. They were de-activated training rifles that were re-activated and the G indicated they were live weapons again. That's why so many are unfired; they weren't capable of firing in their first life.

Found it

I hate to disagree, but I recently read a post where the G was a marking from the Romanian Guard, equivilent of the ROTC. It was a program that taught kids and young adults how to use the weapons. They were only semi auto, and rarely used much, which accounts for the good condition. If I can locate the thread, Ill post a link.
