What country has the best standart rifle IYO?

I think it's Germany with the G36

It must of cost the German military a pretty penny to make the G36 standard. I'd say America and it's glorious M16, but then you'd say I'm biased /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif

France with the FAMAS G2. Period.

The rifle with everything and anything.

Bullpups lead the way!

Shakken you bastard, you beat me to it.

*I* was supposed to be the crazed bullpup fanatic.

Well, my vote goes to the FAMAS, I'm not too fond of the rest of the country, but they got the guns down pat.

Question: Austria=Steyr Aug=Standard?

15th Feb 2000, 03:31 AM
IMO Singapore's SAR-21 OWNS!!

Yes, FA MAS, you're probably right

For the question one or two messages above:
Yes the Steyr AUG is the standard AR of the Austrian armed forces(commonly known as 'Bundesheer') It has the designation STG77(STG=Sturmgewehr - which means assault rifle) and 77 is the year it was introduced.
(NO not 77 AD, 1977..)
The country with the best-looking AR?
Well..Swizerland - or any country with an M4(don't know if any country has only this one..)
Well, the Galil isn't too ugly too.
Does the M41 count?(from Aliens - hehe..)
Better don't ask any such questions..
It'll just bring up some emotions.

And who would be able to say, that I'm not right?

If IRC Saudi-Arabia bought the licence to manufacure a few thousands G11. So my vote goes to Saudi-Arabia and the G11 (of course only if thats true, and they make the G11 their standard Assaultrifle)

(damn old keyboard, rather then talking about guns, i should go out and buy a new keyboard)

The G11 was a top secret project between Germany and America. I don't really believe that Saudi Arabia has adopted it.

23rd Feb 2000, 01:38 AM
the G11, thats the one with the caseless amuntition?
my vote goes to the G36 : It looks cool , but i dont know where to get any specks for it.

The SA80 is a pretty clever modular bullpup system. A few changed parts and you get a light support weapon. Too bad the British have it.

Question for Gryphon- Did anyone adopt the Stoner system?

-Mr. McFeely

1st Mar 2000, 05:33 AM
The M63 Stoner wasn't really adopted - the seals used it quite a lot in Vietnam - too bad the Army didn't wan't to spent a few bucks to perfect it. The Stoner is a hell of a weapon system.
By the way:
The SA80 isn't that good after all. It is likes to jam very often(like in the old saying: bang, bang, jam; British Army)


anything you do can get you killed, including doing nothing
