POTD, short for Photo Of The Day, is TFB’s recurring articles where we go to great length trying to find the best pictures and stories out there. Today we have a mixed menu of Accuracy International, Heckler & Koch G36 and M107 / Barrett M82.

Pretty cool multi-cam on this HK G36, except they forgot some of the parts.
