So true dude. Do u know the name of the weapon that enfeild and H&K are working on to replace the Sa80, i have seen it just dont know the name
No idea m8, havnt heard about it.
I looks so cool. Like the G36. They have a model of it at a local army shop i go to and it still has the gd ol sight on it to.
Sounds nice, however i bet it wont be out anytimes soon due to the SA80 A2 just last year being used in battle.
Yeah i dout it will be out so soon. So how does the A2 handle the sand now?
Mac DaddyWhen is the American and British army gonna beaf up the cal of their weapons to 7.62mm. The M16/M4, SA80, LSW and SAW all fire 5.56. Only the american M60 fires 7.62. I just want to see a weapon made (mainly a rifle) that fires 7.62 to match up to the power of the AK.
It confused me at first because handguns have 9mm...which i thought was bigger o.O?
9mm = pistol round, 7.62 = rifle round. 7.62 is bigger, much bigger
Alright, actually. i will explain.
When we used the firing ranges not far from basra, near the iran-iraq border, in the desert it was pretty good.
I looked into the weapon and there was alot of sand built up just from the wind blowing across, i didnt clean it and nore did anyone else clean theres within that hour to two hour period. When coming to use it i fired if i remember correctly 40 rounds, and there wasnt a problem and most of the sand had gone but it stuck to it quickly afterwards and built up more. But i really dont think there would be a problem with it when firing again, as when its loaded and in the chamber the sand seems to get pushed away and isnt an obstruction.
But if u didnt clean it for a good couple days and had fired it many times, i think it would become a problem. Everything else on the weapon is great, better than A1 anyway. cocking handle is alot better.
Sorry about all the Qs but wats it like with a rear mounted clip. Is it easier than one mounted infront of the grip?
Cant comment really, the same i guess never really thought about it
