The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just came across this photo on Facebook of 2 Para training in sunny Copehill Down and noted the fancy tactical rail in place of the good old fashioned green hand guard. I have only ever used the bog standard SA80 config and noticed that in this one the gas parts appear to be quite different. Are the rails now standard issue for regular units (with/without modified gas parts) or is this something that people can do individually to their weapons?
  2. Clearly you have been on Mars; if not, a Wah is suspected.
