c7.jpg The Diemaco C7 / C8. The C7 rifle is a slightly modified copy of the Colt M16A2 assault rifle (US Armed Forces), licence-built by Diemaco company of Canada. The C7 rifle, along with C7A1 flat-top, scoped rifle and C8 carbine, is adopted by Canadian Forces, and is in service since 1984. It is also adopted by Danish and Netherlands armed forces. Like the M16A2, the C7 is a direct gas operated weapon, but it has full-auto and single-shot modes instead of the original three-round burst and single-shot modes of the M16A2. Other differences are simplified two-position aperture rear sight with only two settings. Barrel is crome-lined and rifled for SS109 (5.56mm NATO) ammunition. The C7 and C8 are issued with black polymer 30 rounds box magazines but also can accept any M16-compatible magaines. The C7A1 (Diemaco's proprietary name C7FT, or Flat-top) is a C7 rifle that has carrying handle with iron sights removed, and the picatinny-weaver mount installed on the top of the receiver. C7A1 is issued to the Canadian troops with X3.4 Elcan optical sight. The C8 carbine is the equivalent of the US M4 carbine - shorter barreled version of C7 with telescopic buttstock. C8 is adopted by Canadian Gendarmerie. Flat-top version of the C8 is available for foreign customers, as well as some other modifications, such as heavy barreled versions, Light Support Weapon wersions etc.

I liked my M16A2, but love my M4. I always liked the S.A.W. and my 50.cal, but the M4 just holds a special place with me.

The dear Rk 62: 1113200146_IMG_7345.jpghttp://world.guns.ru/assault/as43-e.htm The one I was issued was from 1994 and looked like the one in the picture, it essentially was a hybrid between the Rk 62 and 95, practically unused and a very accurate thing indeed, but every gun has it problems I suppose; the front sight had a too big bead thus making you guess where to place your shots since it covered most of the object at distances further than 150m, and hitting the ten was always a guessing game even at that distance. The back sight got kind of easily stuck with snow too, and once the gun froze because of too much snow inside it melting inside the tent and freezing again outside and it took a few seconds to get working again.

One of the pros was that it was rather indestructible, they never got any damage from being dropped on cliffs, in water or anything else. I don't recommend driving it over though, one PKM was destroyed when one of the trucks backed over it, and those things are even sturdier...

BTW, I didn't feel very smart when I one day much after getting out realized that it actually had a place where to put the cleaning equipment so I wouldn't have had to forget them all the time, they just hadn't told us other than to clean the space properly... I suppose you can guess it straight away; the buttstock... :uhm:

I prefer the MP5 by Heckler and Koch, which has a non-tumbling round

mostly used by law enforcement agencies as the rounds do less damage

When I am at the sniping range, I like the M82 @ 50 caliber; a nice high-powered sniper rifle

Well, the MP5 was supposed to be issued to some more special units as coastal jaegers, but I never saw any there, they probably were stored somewhere where the evil conscripts couldn't destroy them as all odd&cool equipment as grenade pistols and P90s... :( (Not that they would have been of much real use though in training anyway, and they don't look very durable and probably really might have been destroyed considering all the beating the rifles had to take.)

I think the MP5 is pretty durable, aren't most Heckler und Koch products? Apparently a good gun, anything that has been in use for over half a century tends to be good(well, either that, or some militarys are really really poor). I didn't know that the Irish military had the Aug, it seemss to be a good choice, from what I have read of it. now, does Ireland have an army, or a Self-defense-force? Oh, moy much does the Bren jam? How reliable is it, how much of a beating can it take, etc. If it works, then I guess the guys in charge of supply figure there is no need to replace it. if it doesn't then I think you need to get better people in charge of Supply:p

I suppose so, but you should see the creative destruction talents of some responsible citizens. :vikki: Just as an example, I witnessed a stupefying axe versus saws battle when we who were too sick to be allowed to take part in the normal program were supposed to chopp wood but the sergeant went away for a few minutes and left us with a building between us and him, when he returned only the axe was still in shape and most of the logs carried a few dozen meters away and hidden. :p

BTW, we still supposedly have Maxims stored somewhere. They work I guess, but weigh a ton compared to modern weapons...

Yeah, don't you Marines use the Navy model? When I was at the ranges I saw MP5 A3s and A5s, though I wasn't trained on them, they were just there. We use the M16A2 and the M4A1, and the 870s and 500/590s. My pesonal favorite though is M4A1 Commando with the 11.5 in barrel. Those are sweet!
