The orange "G" stands for "Garda" which is Romanian for guard. This past October, I went to the Romanian National Military Museum in Bucharest. The rifles were for the Patriotic Guard and not the regular army. The display for the black banded Patriotic Guard rifles said that they were semi-auto only. All the full auto parts were in the rifle except that the full auto disconnector had the tail ground off which made it fire semi auto only. The Patriotic Guard was mandatory service for all highschool aged kids... girls and boys. Think of it as a combination of the Young Pioneers and the National Guard. Here is a picture of the black banded Patriotic Guard rifle I took at the museum...
