The point of a battle rifle is not specifically a "precision rifle." The point is to have a powerful, durable, very reliable, all-around full size rifle. That is what the G3 is. It does happen to be very accurate too as a result of it's design.
The CETME is the old design, H&K has made improvements to it. And in turn, PTR-Inc. has further improvements. If someone was interested in an M1A, you wouldn't necessarily recommend that they just purchase an M1 Garand instead, would you?
