has no-one told them that that wasn't the final design for the SA80? feckin wine guzzling, cheese eating, garlic sniffing surrender monkeys.
They never get it right. The didn’t invent French Knickers, French Fries or the French Letter. Their most recent invention has been the re-writing of history of their part in WW11. :wink:

we all know what it is m8, but the fact of the matter is, it is not and has never been, a service weapon, nevermind in the SA80 family.

It's NOT the next step on from the EM2, the SA80 design is actually a bastardised AR18 action and nothing to do with the 50's design, which admittedly does look similar zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz,etc.

Look it up on the intermaweb thingy, I can't be arrsed to repeat myself.

Does this mean I'm becoming less spotterish, or more intolerant? I know which one my money's on...

Edited for extra pedantry.

Thank you for that -- I had drafted a response along the same lines but decided that somebody else should post it first!

The only similarity between the SA80 and EM2 is that they are both bullpups.
