    But the M16 series sights are quite similar, right? Anyone got any pics of them?

    M16 uses iron sights, our c7's (well for the marines anyway) are all equiped with scopes.

    And what is iron sights? i thought they were just the standard sights on the weapon, as opposed to scopes etc.

    This is the problem with languages, i don't know what these things are called in english :)

    iron sights are the standard sights built into the rifle, in Infiltration when you don't use a scope or aimpoint you are using the iron sights.

    'Open sights', might be a less confusing term to use.

    This is the standard C7A1 as the Canadian Forces (and others) use them, with a scope as standard issue:

    This as opposed to the typical open sights (which you can see by aiming with the M16A2 in INF without the ACOG scope attached).

    My question is why bother having the front part come up if you're not going to use it?

    Because, incase of CQB, they would like to atleast pretend they still have open sights. :)

    PS Pretending is fun.

    Yeah, but what about the M16 iron sights make these non diopter sights?!? Correct me if im wrong, but isn't a diopter sight a small hole close to your eye, and a post at the far end of the weapon?

    Diopters are double rings

    While in a normal post and aperture sight, you simply point the post at what you want to shoot, with a diopter, you frame the rings as evenly as you can to ensure the rounds go dead center.

    Aha, so that's the difference, thanks for the help :)

    Well then, what do you call the M16 type sights, with a ring and post? Except for calling them iron sights i mean :)

    Can you tell me...

    How the hell this topic, that was talking about the Tavor and how much we want this weapon(right guys?) became a Iron sights topic?
    its really strange how quick a topic could change in here

    It happens. Besides the Tavor suggestion was settled a while ago I thought. It came across to me as "probably not anytime soon if at all". So maybe if they get far enough along and their weapons modelers get bored we'll see one.

    Didn't ShakKen say something about the TAVOR having a flaw in it's optics?

    I think the SAR-21 would be a better choice, it can fit most anything you'd want to put on it, and it even has decent backup iron sights. :)

    The SAR-21 has a flaw in it too, I'd have to look it up, I prefer something tried and true, perhaps the G-36k? The Steyr Aug is a Bullpup, Why not it instead?

    Because the Steyr AUG sucks.

    BTW could you please look up the flaw in the SAR-21 for me?

    Why don't you, and then look up why the AUG sucks for me. :D

    If you're so Enamored with it, then you tell me.


    I don't know of any real problems with the AUG, if it's maintained and cared for.
