M_saini,

Mistakes always happen and are regretted. We go out of our way to do our best within reason. That being said, we absolutely decimated those savages in under a year. Now let’s see where the hydra rears it’s head next.

Thakur_B, What magnification are you talking about with a holosun sight? A fixed or variable? To give you an example, we’ve had acgs/acog depending on service with the aurora reticle for near twenty years, tritium powered. Fixed 4X mag and reticle with red dot, windage and elevation.

Re: Small Armaments & Infantry Equipment - News & Discussion

So y’all have a 800yd rifle kitted out with a holosun sight good for 50yd at best and used for cqc ? Noice. Speaks volumes. On the flip side you have a white light on before the muzzle which makes a lot of sense. But no nods or n enabled eqpt. Still living in the good ole nam era.

Re: Small Armaments & Infantry Equipment - News & Discussion

Pretty sure the air 516/716 family can be chambered in all 3 variants you mentioned. This is why I said I stand corrected. I assumed IA would have chambered it in 7.62X39 - I would have done that. But they didn’t, they chose the 51 which makes standardization harder. And ya, I’m with you in the whol...

Re: Small Armaments & Infantry Equipment - News & Discussion

As for the barrel length, I’m sure sig can work around a reduced barrel length if the requirement came up. Plenty of M4s with varying barrel lengths given out to need. Standardization around 5.56 with gunners specializing in 7.62X51.

SCAR H not recommended by NSW. HK416 seems to be the favored toy.

Guys I think we misunderstood each other. I should have stated I was operating under the assumption of the 7.62X39 rd and not the 51.
