That uses the .223 (5.56mm) NATO standrad ammo doesn't it? That looks similar to an M-16 30-round magazine.

yup.
probably is the same. all nato mags are pretty much the same. i think the AK has the same mag as well.
but i duno if you can hold 31 rounds in the M16 one though.
you can with the SA80/LSW/L98 one but it jams alot doing that.

The SAS uses the M4.

The SA80 has issues with left handers and the trigger well is easily damaged. There is no forward assist and the bolt can potentially stick. The weapon is not as modular as an M4 either.

the SAS/SBS uses the MP5 as does most SF fores of the western world or uses the G11, sometimes they use M4's or M16's but mostly it depends on the situation.
mostly though its MP5's
yeah cause it aint a left handed weapon.
really? cause i used it and the trigger gaurd pretty much defended it ok.
yeah the bolt sticks cause it isnt cleaned.
well i dunno about how easy the M4 is to assemble/disassemble but the SA80 is a bit of a ***** assembling.

Depends on the mission and the unit. Most use a mixed model, some MP5's, some assault, etc.
