Good to read that many of you like the G36, i prefer the combat version (with red dot vision). After that it's the mp7, standart weapon in the military for officers now.
Another good reason to be German

RK 95 TP 7.62-39mm This is the perfect assault rifle.



For larger calibers I really like 81mm mortar. You can set it up pretty much anywhere in very short time and shoot pretty much any target within range. Hills, trees, houses, doesn't matter 'cause of the high firing arc.

That looks remarkably like the South African version of the Galil, minus the scope.

That is because the Galil was copied from a finish rifle, itself copied from the AK...

If my memory is correct, both the Galil and the South African rifle are fitted with FN type folding butts, and the upturned cocking handle which the original Finnish Valmet didnt have. The Rk62 later fitted the folding butt.

I dont agree, the folding stock is a damn good idea in confined spaces, the upturned cocking handle makes it easier to use then the original AK47 type.

The biggest problem with the British issue L1A1 was its length in confined spaces.

I dont think IMI would bother turning the cocking handle upwards if there wasnt any reason to do so.

One thing I have found with my version of the Galil, the rear sight is far too small. I have been seriously considering drilling it out by about another mm. At present I use the flip up night sights for rapid target selection. Works quite well.

I have a spare top cover with a scope mount and rings, and fitted a small 4x32 Zeiss scope, that too works quite well.
