Riot-Control Trigger Guards on Turkish G3 Rifles

An interesting detail from a couple photos of the recent disturbance in Turkey. Take a look at the trigger guards of the G3 rifles – they have been equipped with large protective shields. I have not seen this sort of thing before, but it appears to be a riot-control type of modification, either to prevent the trigger from being pulled when people are grappling over the gun, or to prevent nervous privates from firing unintentionally.

Thanks to Tim for the photos (click to enlarge)!
