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. Post your thoughts on SLRs here. Was it better than the SA80?

    We don't really have many threads about the SLR, so I thought I'd start one off...

  10. Just to stir things up further, I didn't like the ones with wooden furniture. Always prefered an ally black one.

  11. the SA80 is a womens rifle my lord - I'll wager your SA80 couldn't cut a sheep in half with one round, bbq it with the heat and drop it in your billy as a lamb shank cooked to perfection.

  12. I prefer the L85A2.
  13. Excellent!!!! I never thought i'd find a thread about the old elephant stopper on here. I shall enjoy reading other peoples happy memories of this fine weapon. Particularly if it had wooden furniture, which always made it far more accurate if memory serves?...

    prone to jamming - the brass cases were rolled too thin apparently and damaged easily.
