SLR a load of overrated crap!

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. Ok, I've had enough of the bullshit, so here it is:

    Overly long, and useless in CQB.

    Overly heavy and cumbersome to aim.

    Jammed on many occasions (even more than the L85A1).

    Only a 20 round magazine.

    Less accurate than it's replacement.

    Less adaptable for new sights, accessories etc, required for specialist units.

    Not as good as the GPMG - which is the real beast.


    (if I get ROPs, I'll be pissed off!)

    I'm outraged.
  5. Maybe, but it was a step up on a Brown Bess.

    I loved it. When I went home on leave my 12 bore felt like a toy.
  6. Reported for being outside the spirit of this community by being based on fact.

    Bloody heretic!

  7. I had a ND once with an SLR at Hythe Ranges in 1981 - The round is still going to this day damaging cars and killing illegal immigrants.

    The SLR is like Herpes - It goes on and on and on

    Pah, that's nothing.

    Forget all this bollocks about whether the Voyager spacecraft has finally left our solar system. A round fired by an SLR which hit the top of the butts at Ash Ranges in 1987 went vertical and passed Voyager barely 20 minutes later. That round is now out well past Alpha Centauri and still gaining speed.

  15. You's harder to use as a club,than its replacement.

    A higher shooting skill requirement than its replacement ?

    Its bayonet looks scarier than its replacement..........and it didn't break!

    And,still looks better than its replacement.

    Try the Decaf,you'll feel so much better. :meditate:
