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. What do you think of the SA80? good points and bad
    Would you rather use a different gun? and why
  2. It's ace. Why?

    Been done to death - go the Inf Forum or the QM's stores. It is all in there for your SA80 pornfest.
  4. MAHOOSIVE thread on weaponry and I believe the SA80 in the Infantry forum. Have a gander over there.
  5. Yeah I probably should av looked through first, sorry.
    Ive just heard that some soldiers dont like it and would prefer the m4 for instance. But in my experience its been good :wink:
  6. No they wouldn't. The M4 is shit. Really really shit.

    Think SA80A1 with a different name. In my opinion, the SA80A2 is the dogs bollocks.
  7. Technically it's a L85A1/A2 - good bit of kit if the grunts try cleaning them once in a while.
  8. On the infantry forums some say they would pick the ak over the a2, would anyone here?
  9. No. well, maybe.Does that help?
  10. In its day the AK was a masterpiece of engineering simplicity. Today, it's a bit of a cliche. People say they would prefer it, do so because they think it's cool to say crap like that. In a one-on-one direct competition, the AK would get laughed at by the A2. However, it is worth noting that individual performance was never the aim of the AK. Indeed, that's one reason why it's classed as an 'assault weapon' rather than a 'rifle' such as the A2.

    My point is really that you ought not compare the AK with the A2 because they are not the same thing. It's similar to comparing a Ferrari with an Audi TT; yes they are both 'sports cars' and broadly speaking are tools for conducting similar activities but... well, you get where I'm going with this.
  11. GUN?!!!!!!!!!!! :x
  12. Sorry, weapon :wink:
  13. one of those as90 things and a crew from the royal artillery I'll have a brew while they lob huge bits of high explosive in the general direction of the enemy :twisted:
    long as they don't set it alight things will be cushty seems so much easyier than all that fire and movement stuff
    plus for shits and giggles can watch Pharscape81 being beasted over the horizon for calling a rifle a gun :twisted: :D

  14. And you are a tool
  15. How many times we done this now.....and the AK is Gash!....stick with my wee A2..luv it!
