  4. Gunny is a teeeny bit biased at times towards American weaponry!
  5. He did one on Bren Vs BAR with a group of falling plates at about 10-15 yards like a CQB range except they all pop up at once and he see's how quickly he can clear the targets with each gun.

    He walks toward the plates firing the thing from the hip, the US made BAR "wins" this competition with tedious inevitablity of course because it's not far off being an over sized SLR. In reality the Bren would win as you wouldnt advance firing from the hip you would go firm on one knee and give them a full mag in short bursts going from left to right.
  6. The BAR wins because it looks cooler
  7. Strange that Eugene Stoner,rated the AK,above the M16.

    Lets not forget the AK,was around long before the M16,and is still going in the same form,stick an M16 in a pile of shit for a couple of weeks Gunny,see how fucking clever it is then. :meditate:

  9. He commented on the mag being bigger than the BAR but that was about it.

  12. in the same programme he compared the SMLE No3 with the US WW1 equivalent. It pissed all over yank kit

    He then compared the SMLE with the BAR. It still came close as a bolt action v a repeater.

    He didnt dare compare anything with the L1A1 SLR.................

    The MG42 on SF was pretty impressive to

    The gunny has a good sense of humour it must be said - unlike some of our single digit IQ bretheren...
  14. I recall him going on about it being easier to change too.

    Did he say that the Bren is better but the BAR wins as its 'aaaarmerrricaaan'
