    Can any one tell me if the SLR has come back into limited use over last few years in army for doing walls and houses or the odd jundi nut case.

    The Septics have done something similar.. Made a metal chassis with rails and bits for the M14, and its now used as a rifle in the Middle East.

    Oh! 5.56mm running low. 7.62mm discovered in War stocks.....

    Dream on...

    Keep searching. We may find the Energa...

    And PIATs.
     
  7. I find a roller good for speedy coverage but a brush is needed for the tricky bits in the corners :lol:

    It's a question that's often raised but no-one has provided any evidence. There will probably be some (very small) stocks still held for one purpose or another but I can't see why they would end up on operations.
    GPMG does houses and walls very nicely. L96 or L118 does "jundi nut" jobs.
