Hi, I'm new to this forum, and wanted to ask people here who may of used the old FN SLR a few questions? What was it like in field? Did you find it to be too long or too weight? I used in when I was cadets, but as a canadian cadet all we did was shoot it on the range and do drill. So I was hoping to get some first experience with its use. What was it like in Northern Ireland? What was the combat loads like. On Canadian broads its hard to anyone who has used, and no Canadian has it like its been by UK Forces. Thanks.
