I refer to several articles in today's press - along the lines of, "Is the Army about to scrap the rifle it cannot rely on?" Well as an Infanteer with direct experience with both the old and new "A2" version of the rifle I, along with all the Soldiers and Officers I work with, would be delighted. The suggested replacements: Heckler & Koch G36 (yes please) or the Belgian F2000 Modular Assault Weapon (?????). The cost to re-equip between £100-£400 (depending upon your source). Will it really happen??????? I won't be holding my breath.
