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:

    fu2 LE

    Very nice. How many in a section have the GL ?
  2. They need to ditch the stupid "short squeeze long squeeze" fire selector before the Ozzies will take it, it's not a feature that was retained on the F88 IIRC.
  3. Yes we had the long/short squeeze triggers on the F88s. There is a lock out button under the trigger you can pull down to limit it to semi.
  4. Isn't that a lot more complicated than just putting in an R/A function?
  5. Yes it is complicated and it isn't at the same time, it's square head thinking from the war, it works just fine with SMG's and Spandaus that fired from the open bolt and get used on automatic as the default and it's probably OK ish with the AUG for close quarter battle but the marksmanship principles must go to tits if you can't let the trigger come to a stop to follow through a shot properly.
  6. Can't do a decent followthrough on the thing since in my (somewhat limited but backed up by AUG owners) experience is that the direction of muzzle flip is somewhat random, so first you have to work out where the damn thing's gone before you can realign the sights. Apparently a good civvy muzzle brake sorts that out a treat though...
