just got a free shotgun from my stepbrother cause it has a broken firing pin and he thought it wasnt fixable... ok so it cost me 12$ to fix it and its a cheap ass "H&R Pardner" but hey, guns a gun. throw it in with the rest of my budding collection
I have literally had the same conversation. I rocked an EOTech 552 in Baghdad. No hiccups, no problems. Hence the reason I own one. I own an Aimpoint CompM3 (M68) as well. Guess which is currently mounted on my rifle?
If was in the mood to spend lots of money again, I'd get the new EOTech / L3 one that runs on a CR123 and has the battery compartment perpendicular to the axis of the rifle.
I've had to go through the trouble of explaining to my dad that it wasn't the best idea to get an ACOG mounted on his Krinkov in Afghanistan. He wanted to mount it over by the rear sight, without even thinking (or knowing) about Krebs' rails.
Still want the ACOG though. I've been eyeing a TA11E-G for my baby boy.
The SA80 isn't in call of duty on the enfield which was the prototype of the SA80. The SA80 was made in the 80's for a replacement for the standard British assault rifle. I love it because it's British and it fires the 5.56x45mm or .223 rem
The point he was making, and which we OFTEN make in this thread, is that unlike many of us with military time, or in BarnDoor's case, gunsmithing time, it is very unlikely that YOU have any actual real-world experience with the firearms in question.
This brings whatever criteria you used to select those firearms into suspect and pretty much assures that those of us in the thread that have actually been shooting longer than you've been alive, are going to see you as a complete tit talking out his arse about a topic he knows little to nothing about.
Well he is 15 years old, so thats not really very hard. Especially cause he's british, so the only guns he's ever been able to shoot was a shotgun because their gun laws over there suck harder than california.
