Your weapon in the stix info
The south of the same country is running into rainforest, wet, humid and very damp.
The question is simple, leaving all logic and politics and related debates out of the topic, heres the question.
Your running security jobs or protection of interests jobs, (basiclly guarding western or east Asian companies or something like that who are there to gather some type of resource, oil coal whatever just use your imagination)
In this situation, you can choose one primary weapon, now keep in mind, your in the stix, so if you choose a highly advanced electronic battery powered marvel, chances are when your bibs and bops that run on electicity run out of said batterys, it is going to be a long 1000+ km hike back to the nearest radio shack....
So what would you use? Keep in mind the ammunition availible in this area of the world as well, old Soviet and Chinese rounds are plentiful, NATO rounds less common than before mentioned.
Remeber, this is in the middle nowhere in the land of wide open spaces and extreme heat, and in some areas moisture.
Just post your choice, may not be your favorite but hey, something you would use to get by in this situation.

hm.. I would choose an H&K 416 or 417 because of it's reliability but, I think the better choice would be a gun that fits the 7,62x39mm.
So, my gun of choice is the XCR.
It can fire the 7.62x39mm Round, and it can mount additional equipment, like a forgrip, if needed.
I would take an ACOG and a foregrip.
So that's my idea, but I'm just a german civilian

You're in Africa, go with the AK47. Rounds are plentiful as are replacements. The freakin AK47 is Africa. Don't over think it.

Id ride with 03USMC on this one,
If for some out of this world reason I was placed in this situation, I would get either a FN FAL chambered in the standard 7.62 by 51mm (semi auto light infantry rifle model), another common weapon in SOME areas it seems. Bound to be some illegal ammuntion running to supply ammo as well.
But more or less, when it all boils down, the AKM (AK 47 III genereation) with maybe a snythetic furniture, and thats not just being fancy but to reduce weight,
The old Russian K would most likely be the best bet, so all in all that would most likely be my choice, parts are plentiful, even interchangible with type 56s, or Yugo or Romanian models.
And those old Soviet M 67 rounds are everywhere.

I would go for the AK-103 or AN-94. Modern, lighter versions of the AK-47 and AK-74. Same reliability, modern materials, and chambered in the 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 perspectively. Can't go wrong with either one. But if I wasn't using soviet/chinese ammo, then I would go with the g36 or the FN FAL. Both are reliable western rifles that use higher velocity nato rounds.

That's just me wanting my fancy modern tech when I'm reaching for the Masada. But in reality i would take an FN FAL chambered in 7.62 NATO because it would have the reach and accuracy the AK doesn't have for the wide open spaces mentioned in the intial post of the thread lol. There are some FALs out there in the sub-Saharan and central Africa along with appropriate ammo.
