Aaaahhhh, 7.62mm bliss
(I should get out more!)
I got marksman with SLR, SA80 iron & susat, actually also SMG (yes was corps). Score was best with SA80 susat however give me SLR anyday. Expected recoil is manageable (had groove in glasses though), misfeeds, jams, mag issues, accuracy in inclement weather etc. If I had to go 1 on 1 i would go L1A1 anyday
30 round mag - just fit the LMG mag to it after using this the SA80 was like an airgun
ACAB, your measure of a man is more than strange, probably why you are lacking in the penis area. Its belgian For crying out loud
The SLR was a great weapon, easy to fire(as long as you held it right) easy to drill with, just a great allrounder really.
I was weaned (cadets) on No4 SMLE, after that SLR recoil not an issue. Accuracy, on t'othjer hand - SLR is inferior by miles to same calibre the H&K G3, and whatever you may think of SA80, hit/kill rates in NI contacts went up when it came in. Having the rear and foresight on separate bits of metal separated by a hinge was an increasing problem as SLRs grew like me - older and older and slacker and slacker . .
