Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Wouldn't want to...

    1. Carriage?
    2. How do you fire bullpup in the prone?
     
  2. Plenty of potential stoppages!!
     
  3. bombing up would be fun!
     
  4. Painfully so!
     
  5. Think they are mostly fun for civvys on ranges and in computer games.
    military use akward heavy plus trying to use a Rifle like a LMG is going to end in problems.
     
  6. Concur with all of the above, hence the reason why 30 rd mags are not the definative in mag designs, but, in our trade about the most effective you'll get.

    I used to use a 50 rnd mag as standard (one issued) in the R4/Galil - never had a problem - here is some Youtube of a very strange septic using one.

     
  8. What's the opinion on the offset, angled iron sights (halfway through vid)?

    Can't see you get a proper hold with those..
     
  9. Trigger snatch on second guy. Who's coaching him?
     
  10. Old hat; John Wayne had one for his 'six' shooter.

    Counting rounds must be a bit of a nightmare, plus nobody seems to have done a whole mag a la Rambo, showing my ignorance, wouldn't overheating come into play?
     
  11. Doesnt the FN P90 have a 50 round magazine as standard? Wouldnt be an issue firing prone either with its horizontal magazine feed.
