I heard a rumour that the Cadet rifle is being binned and normal Riffle 5.56s (A1 or A2s) are being rolled out. Was this wishfull thinking on the part of the rumour spreader or is there some substance to it? Is there any legislative or regulatory reason why cadets have the cadet rifle? It seems odd that they have single shot manually cocked rifle but can have LSWs. Are cadets attending training with regular or TA units allowed to fire the standard rifle? Are there restrictions placed on this?
