7.62mm Minimi LMG for UK

Did i ever tell you about the time the IPT took a bog-standard LSW. Painted the green bits black using Halfords rattlecan matt black, ditched the bipod in favour of a Harris, screwed an Vortex onto the end, fitted an adaptor to give us picatinny toprail and a 6x48 ACOG/RMR (like the Sharpshooter one?) and bodged on a SA80A2 quadrail. Showed it off at a weapons trial and the RAAT troops loved it......
Really...? Tell me more ;-)

So is the GPMG here to stay as a section weapon?
Wasn't someone going on about those who know more about these things deciding that it would be a platoon weapon - ie one per platoon and sections getting a Minimi?

At one point there was going to be a 2 gun MSG at Platoon HQ with 3 sections using LSW/LMG......
So section patrol they would only carry a minimi? I can see some people getting the shit shot out of them.
