Looks like a plastic action man rifle.
The fastex buckle does look suspiciously large when compared to the weapon, although not as large as the blast, flash, recoil and gas stoppage problems it would have.

The Int section down in the Falklands had a "Show ,telland play" room down in BIFFI.

There were a few cut down Argie FALs , just a hacksaw job with no recoil at ALL or a big fukc off flame shooting out 10foot when it was fired.

Reminds me of the M16 pistol that was designed for B52 bomber crews to use as a bailout weapon in Vietnam. As far as I know it never went into full production, but a few prototypes are floating around somewhere and one of my work colleagues used to own one.

Can't find a phot at the moment but I will try and dig one out.

Come to think of it, the Oz SASR had quite a line in cut down auto SLR/M16 in SVN. Apparently the SLR looked and sounded like a .50 HMG. I've no idea what the handling characteristics were like, I think it was mainly to generate as much disturbance as possible to allow the patrol to escape.
