1959 video of the G3 manufacturing process.  I don't know if this was produced by Hk or Bundeswehr.

Interesting. I always wondered how they made the twist inside the barrel.

That was a cool video, I love the manufacturering process.
I understand there to be three common practices for rifling a barrel, "cut rifling" is when you run a cutter through the barrel until you get the desired depth, "button rifling" is when you pull a mandrel through the barrel to iron in the pattern, and it looks like the video is using "hammer forged" which has hammers smashing the barrel over a patterned mandrel.
I was impressed with the TIG welding that they were doing back then, I had seen that weld on the rifle and had kind of wondered how it would have been done in the manufacturing facility, this is what it looked like before robotic welding.
