I must say, it nothing to do with being english, but the best firearm i've ever fired is the SA80 A2 rifle, its so versatile, extremly easy to strip and clean, so easy to fire, and has two adaptations

And what other firearms have you used? I'm genuinely curious, given the lack of availability of most military-style weapons in the UK.

I wish they were allowed to sell semi-auto L85s in the States, it got a bad name from the original and A1 variant but everyone who uses the L85A2/3 seems to love it.

Nice list CornCod.

I like the Browning Hi-Power as a sentimental favorite auto pistol.

The S&W Model 10 is a classic ... but I prefer something more modern in a revolver. My S&W 686 (basically a Colt Python copy) is nice ... but the colt has a better fit and finish and the .357 round is very capable.

The AK (AK-47? AKM?) is a benchmark firearm but I would prefer a Finish Valmet as the fit and finish (and probably accuracy) will be better. The 7.62x39mm cartridge is fine as it is.

Lee Enfield .303 is by far my favorite bolt action rifle.

I prefer a Remington 870 to a Mossberg shotgun.

As far as the specific AK variants are concerned, I would prefer an AK-103, the modernized AKM with plastic furniture. I have never used one, but I own a 7.62X39 Saiga, which is a derivative of the AK-103 and am rather fond of it.
