    But limiting the AK because of heat problems with the M16 seems a little weak to me. After all the AK was ment to take the heat but not be as accurate as an M16. THe m16 was never designed for that kinda fire rate. SO if you are going to limit a weapon by makeing the barrel melt etc, you need to know at EXACTLLY what point each one does melt. As for not being able to grasp the foregrip, I vote NO. After all Heat rises, and even after ALOT of ammo through an AK/SK the forgrip stays cool, it is the barrel and TOP of the gun that are hotter than crap.

    Hmm, interesting. I thought the squad leader ususally had the 'nade launcher, not an LMG...oh well.

    As far as I can tell:

    Army Squad = 4 men. 2X M-249, 1X M-16+M-203, 1X M-16

    Marine Corps Squad = 3 men. 1X M-249, 1X M-16+M-203, 1X M-16

    Anubis you may hate me for this but...

    I like the AK as it is, it basically serves as a supressive fire weapon and is all we have for that role right now. It is innaccurate as shooting hot **** in a potato gun (um... not that I, uh, know) because of its kick but has a high capacity and high power rounds.

    I use the AK when I am on a funcitonal team and basically use it to cover people while they are reloading, and to guard the back in case someone comes running and gunning in the back door, because yes it is very deadly in close quarters as it was intended in manufacture (i gather from what I've read anyway). In semi auto it is still accurate, and even in full auto I use it for accurate long range hits by aiming carefully at the midchest and holding my breath.

    The real problem again here is not the weapons at all, its the movement system. If we could only move realistically, the AKs perks for running and gunning would be a nonissue, because they couldn't throw themselves all over the room faster than the ****ing Flash.

    actualy the ak can shoto without melting the drum. but if yo uare really concerned with run'n'gunners then make a burst instead of automatic. and plus i have seen a picture of an m-15 with a double drum attatchment. if yo uwanna see it email me at dj_majyc@yahoo.com or find me on aim at MaJyC69

    depends on the length of time you're talking about... i've gone through about 5 full magazines (on semi, but fairly quick shots one after the other) about as quickly as i could get my sights on target (which is fairly quickly), and my weapon still operated quite admirably... although i'll admit that the handguard was getting somewhat uncomfortable to hold... :D

    as for the cookoffs... that's some scary stuff... i had a friend's weapon cookoff an entire magazine of blanks while it was pointed at my feet... the weather was hot, and we'd done a LOT of firing on full-auto (yeah, M-16S1, a variant of the A1) and i'm assuming his auto-sear was loose... :con:

    After 170 rounds full auto, M4A1s play a game called; "Pick up what's left of your supporting hand after my barrel goes boom".

    No joke, Rangers have already lost fingers to M4A1s due to- as the new manual puts it; "Catastrophic barrel failure".

    Oh OH OH! I have an Idea, model the AKMSU's fore-grip to catch fire if you shoot to much!

    Or make the fore-grip of the M16 melt into the users hand so he will scream in agony and not be able to switch weapons! :D

    Yeah! The M-15 was the experimental heavy-barrelled SAW version of the M-14, but it never went into production as far as I'm aware.

    As for the Beta-C double-drum mag for the M-16 series and/or the G-36, I really would like to see that as well.

    That's the Colt M-4 or M-4A1 carbine, equipped with a forward handle, ACOG sight and Beta-C dual-drum 100-round magazine. It's basically a shortened, retractable-stock carbine version of the M-16, with the M-4 being burst/semi and the M-4A1 being auto/semi IIRC.

    The site is wrong. The M-15 was going to be the heavy-barrel squad automatic weapon version of the M-14 battle rifle, but it was cancelled and never produced.

    The gun in your picture is unquestionably a Colt M-4 carbine.
