Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. http://m.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/29/syria-blocks-internet

    OK I've had to just copy the whole damn article because I can't work out how to copy a picture on a nexus....

    Anyway the question IS, the AK like weapon held by the fighter in the background - what's that barrel attachment? It doesn't have the usual drop from the gas part to the foresight. Can someone shed light? Its the one in the main article picture
     
  2. Is it a sling wrapped around the foresight & pulled tight along the side of the wpn?
     
  3. He's got the sling wrapped around the foresight and pulled taut along the left hand side of the weapon.

    Damn, stoatman had already replied, sorry 'bout that.

    It's the sling, mate. He's got it wrapped around the foresight and then it looks like he's pulled it tight along the side of the weapon.

  6. Yeah, having slings wrapped around the foresight does that to the acoustics.

  12. If you look at it on a bigger screen you'll see its the sling wrapped around the foresight and pulled tight along the side of the weapon.

  13. If you look at it on an IMAX screen you can see Lucy Lawless with her tits out.
