Morning @theoriginalphantom,
I like to think that out there, a foreign squaddie is lovingly cradling his LMG. With my nick-name carved on the butt


just to get clarity - it's carved into the soldiers butt or the weapons butt?
 
The AR-10 must have been quite the Sci-Fi weapon of the future when it was initially released!

The prototype & initial production AR-10 was very light, but by the time it had been modified in line with experience and feedback it weighed basically the same as a FAL; loaded with 20 rounds, 4.82 versus 4.98 kg respectively. And the FAL could squeeze down to 4.85 with an alloy mag.
