I hadn't realised the standards for were so low. The lack of grammar and correct spelling over there gives me a headache.

Besides I was a Field Marshal in the TA = RESPECT please!

This ex-squaddies forum (AARSE alternative) is also looking for desperate members - PERFECT GIRLS

Yeeha.
My comment about pongo's and NCO's was tongue in cheek.

If we're going to willy wave, I was a Royal Marines Officer (Capt).

I'm only slightly opinionated, just ask Highway Man.

It's good to have you onboard!

But the foul language and bullying manner comment does still stand.

Sorry, almost forgot - SIR

Foul language is to be expected amongst our sort!

No bullying on my watch (Highway Man's fair game though ). But we're all big boys able to give it back!

You'll fit right in mate.

"with all due respect"? You wouldn't know what respect was if it bit you on the arse!

Any more of this, and I'll have you on boot polishing duties permanently!

Well I haven't posted for a while but I see you "nasty boys" need someone to pull you into line so I'll have a shot at it.

Sorry I can't offer up an exciting military pedigree to prove my worthiness to comment

In my highly opinionated view...
The best assault rifle is

website here

Oh damn, it's just make believe


But seriously...
I'm inclined to think that the "best" is just too damned subjective - I can't get my grubby little paws on anywhere near enough assault rifles to test them all so I end up going for those that I have actually used.

So for me it's a choice of the following, (familiarity with the weapon being the prime consideration here) but it would be very much conditional upon the environment I was operating in: -
M16A1
M16A2
AKM
L85A2
F88-A1
M2 Carbine (yeah I know it's not really an assault rifle but it 'almost' was!)

If I could choose any, it'd probably be the SIG SG550. Yeah it's hellishly expensive and also heavier than most assault rifles but I used to carry the L1A1 and then the M60 so weight isn't so much a bother. My main reason for taking the SG550 is that it has a longer barrel than most plus it comes standard with a folding stock and a bipod.


If I was just going for a hard-wearing, hard-hitting rifle that I could bash in doors just as well as skulls and I could accurately shoot to 500m, I'd never go past the standard battle rifle of Australia from the 1960s-1990s, the L1A1 SLR

If I remember correctly Kevin, Oz built a shortened version of the L1A1. I loved my old L1A1, she was somewhat battered but very accurate, the only problem with it, it was too long. Mine was a very early type with the early type wood stock and forend.
