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. What's this IDF bird shooting?

    M14 Bullpup?
     
  2. haven't got a scooby, but how funky does it look? i'm no expert, but i'd say thats pretty ally.
     
  3. it's a touch famas -esque with the straight mag and bipod set-up, but, what do I know!!
     
  4. yeah, but to be honest, the mag, bipod and fact it's bullpup looks to be about the only thing it has in common with the FAMAS. and isn't FAMAS being issued with STANAG mags now? i think i've seen a few, but i'm not sure if they're one offs and the frogs are still being awkward.
     
  5. Ok, closer look, is the scope there mounted on the gas parts, if so it'll require unmounting and remounting after every use, no?

    Surely not the best design in the world.

    Oh, a little digging and a quick search says it's an "M89D"

  6. Correct Operator.
    Found it myself now:
    Looks like a pile of cr4p to me.
     
  7. So does the bulge on the birds arrse :D
     
  8. m-36 based on the m-14
    I used it in 1989 for a couple of months ,
    their were only a couple around and it looked very cool compared to our m-14's ,had the same x6 sight
    The one I used didnt have a saftey as it was very much "Hand Made",
    were using m-24's these days ,in fact was training in the reserves this week with them.
     
  9. It is a physical impossibility to be Ally while wearing ear defs.
     
  10. Touché
     
  11. its an american M14 7.62 rifle 're-engineered' into a bullpup and accurized as a snipers weapon.

    gimmick.

    Your probably right, when it comes to small arms I was born an anorack!
     
  15. This has a danger of turning into a "What's this? Any rifle spotters in?" thread.
