    Why? Just why?

    For the same price you could get yourself a reasonably nice hunting rifle that out performs this piece of shite in every single way.

    The SLR was shit.

    I have several reasonably nice hunting rifles - and an SLR 'cos it is a historically important rifle, is fun to shoot, is competitive in French T.A.R. competitions, and has nostalgic sentimental value to me having used it for part of my time in the mob.

    P.S. You must be a homo.
    P.P.S. You are not allowed to have one anyway......

    I can understand the sentimental aspect, but to call it 'historically important' is taking the piss a bit. It's not as if they are particularly rare or iconic.

    The SLR will be completely forgotten in a few years, save for the people who used them.

    Because it was shit.

    AK47's are historically important, and they are more shit.....

    The SLR was used by the Brits in Malaysia, Northern Ireland, and the Falklands, and by Australia and New Zealand in Vietnam, and by Rhodesia in the Rhodesian Bush War....and that is without expanding on the whole FN FAL story, so I think it is historically important.
