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:

  1. just seen a big poster in our CQMS with pictures of how it'll look

    im not keen on the handguard with the stupid foregrip

    ACOG looks sweet though

    no-one here seems to know when theyre coming in... anyone know??

    all i got told was that were getting them first (inf)

    The pistol foregrip is an option that has been on offer for several years. I have not seen the carbine version in the flesh but there was talk of that having it to allow a short barrel.
  3. the handguard itself is black and looks a bit smaller

    the barrel looks longer

    also talks of fitting a new flash supressor to totally eliminate muzzle flash, and silencer... so this poster says anyways
  4. My bold, my "I will believe it when I see it" alarm has just tripped.
  5. Get us a picture of it then!
  6. when im next down the stores i will
  7. i've seen the poster too.

    picatinny rails etc.

    holographic sights.

    and yes, i'll believe it when i actually see one!
  8. Sounds very nice, but like everone else i'll believe it when i see it!
    Regards to the foregrip i've seen a few guys with the LSW grip attached in the holes beneath the current handguard.
  9. Already posted a few days ago. From a recent edition of Kit magazine:

  10. Ohhhhh, that! Yeah seen, from what I remember from the article it's just prototypes and speculation.
  11. Reading that it seems that only the handguard has actually been procured.
    Still doesn't mount an ACOG as far as I can see. Surely the development ones with this sight have had a picatinny rail fixed - can't see ACOGs being specially made to fit the (not so standard) STANAG rail..


    Looks a very good solution though. the Docter Red dot sight on top is excellent - I was looking at one the other day.

    there's a couple of work arounds for the Stanag,

    1. get a thin converter for stannag to pictanny, should be able to be done without too much trouble. it would raise the height of the sight a bit but the SUSAT is already quite high so perhaps this will work well with ACOG

    2. have an arm coming off the top of the foregrip pictanny allowing the sight to be mounted on the arm. So it sorts of floats above the STANAG grooves.

    image is too small, does anyone have the kit mag url?
  14. So, are we the only people with STANAG rails? not a wah

    I think the Barbados Defence Force may have them... (on their SA80's).
