HK416 Seems like a good carbine assault rifle. I wonder why we can't have something that is brand spanking new and obviously one of the best guns available on the market ATM. Instead, we get a half-arrsed gun like the L85. OK, I know HK worked wonders making the L85 an extremely reliable rifle...but at what cost?! It's taken 20 years and probably Â£400 or so per rifle to upgrade to A2 specification--an upgrade, that most would agree, that is/was 20 years too late! Doesn't change the fact that our weapon was made by the lowest bidder and to the lowest acceptible specifications. Whereas in America, they are prepared to buy one of the better available weapons for their soldiers to use. Does any one else (past/present serving) not feel SLIGHTLY hard-done-by? Surely we deserve the best equipment, not some half-arrsed 'easy on the pennies' piece of equipment?
