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:

    Got another slot on ticket or a .223 and a .22 so fancy an M4/C8/AR15 type rifle with a conversion kit.

    Got to be picatinny all the way and no gay M-16 type carry handle

    Any recommendations?

    Oberland are the best in Europe by some margin, but I guess you want something for a UK FAC?

  6. Bradley Arms do a very good range of what ye seek. Good bloke to deal with too unlike Jabba at SGC who can be a bit of mare.

    Bradley Arms - Welcome

    I'd second that based on trying an M4 and Claypigs match model both from Mark Bradley. Cant fault the workmanship!
     
  8. Haha! Fair enough- it's been a while since I dealt with the old coot! Who's all the rage these days then?

    That worked, you have now pissed off an awful lot of us. I take it no other guns were harmed/part exchanged in the procurement of that piece of sexyness?

    I need to convert my .223 back to short range spec (collapsible butt and Elcan), and swapping butts is a pain:

    Swapping butts eh? A good job this is a serious thread!

    Swapped a whole SLR for this (thus cunningly creating a need for a new semi-auto 7.62):
