What makes a gun an assault rifle. A an assault rifle is a weapon capable of both semiautomatic and automatic that fires INTERMEDIATE cartriges. I dont heard anything about barrel length. F2000 is an assault rifle by right. Its like the same thing as calling an m4a1 a carbine, and not an assault rifle. Besides a carbine is a SHORTENED version of a rifle. Therefore it IS an assault rifle.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for sweet looking guns, so I go with the Tar-21 or the Chinese QBZ-95.

Besides if the barrel is not long enough then how about we replace the 400m barrel on the f2000 with a 600mm huh! Would that satisfy u?

I'd pick something dependable and non-plastic: AK-74M or AK-107. Or possibly the shorter AK-105. In cal 5.45x39 Russian, a round that is less dependant on velocity (it isn't designed to fragment but to tumble, which it does even at lower speed, ie at longer distances or when fired from a short-barreled weapon) and thus can be used efficiently at both short and long distances and in weapons with a wide variety of barrel lengths.

I couldn't care less if the weapon is perceived as a symbol of democracy or oppression as long as it keeps me alive.

I'd chose the SA-80 L85-A2 combat assault rifle anyday. I've used it a lot and grown to love it.

I'm not touching this with a ten foot pole. And to just explain, today. Firearms terms are changinh. A carbine used to be a Carbine, and a rifle was a rifle. But it's all gone goobledigook. The PRC calls the Type 56 Carbine (Chi-Com Ak-47) a carbine when it's a Rifle and they call the Type 56 Rifle (Chi-Com SKS Carbine) a Rifle when it's a Carbine. And with the whole Bull-Pup thing. It's even worse.

Really who gives a dam as long as they do what they are designed to do.

Just out of curosity,

What is the difference between a rifle and carbine. I know that like dragoons, carbines were orginally used by horse mounted cavalry and essentially it was just a smaller and lighter rifle. But in todays day and age is their any other difference?

Long barrel doesn't always mean that the rifle is better or more accurate.
