I'll know when I actually get one in my hands.

Thanks for the heads up...
Well, like I said shot several and they all where wacky, the groups where very inconsistent. Everyone I shot has been sold since then. That is why (IMO) good deals can be found on them.

The P90 on the other hand performed very well.

I would like to get something like this made for my Trailside.

Considering Cordura also, definitely must have the extra clip carry.

They did.

They kick like a MF.

So I'm told of course

Doh, Magazine Sir! A clip is a device used to load a magazine.

Another one I would have to handle, wondering how the ergonomics are...

In all things I stand corrected, you are correct.

The terms between clip and magazine have become interchangeable, but of course they are not.

The SLR (Brit FN FAL) was standard issue to the British Army until the SA80 was brought into service. The units you mention will, ironically, more than often, not carry the SA80 but a variety of non-standard arms.

Recruits in training used to often use a H&K .22 kit in the SLR while they learn marksmanship so they are not put off by the kick.

Again, so I'm told

Very nice actually. It took a while to get the whole Bull Pup thing going, but I liked it. The shorter OAL made dynamic entry training much easier

I think that'd be a pretty good deal for the buyer... My first ever was a BHP in 1987. Still have it - totally one of my faves

What is a Bull Pup?

I keep seeing it mentioned and have yet to figure out if it's a particular rifle or simply a style of rifle.

What's the goss on that?
