I heard the SA 80 had carbon heavy rounds and a crap rear slide action. One mag in a firefight and your out with the cleaning kit!!.... hope for anybody serving in the BA's sake, they upgraded it since. Saw a stwyer round go through an oak tree once, gave me a real fright, lucky the stupid b*a*t*rd wasnt purposely trying to shoot me, that was my favourite Assault rifle, and is tried and tested in battle conditions, 10 out of 10 in my books. p.s. Didnt read the manual from Stwyer. We go the idiots guide which was range, velocity and assembly. Only got to know her on first shoot, and it was a sweet hold for rapid shot. Single shot range was much better also then previous weapons. Good fire ratio, got that HK feel on auto.

first of all any rifle that you get shot with will "rip you a new one" and why do people always say that's final. the gun you use is based on personal preferance and your abilities. for my self i would like to try the AUG A3, first of all it has a rate of fire 680-800 min. that is only limited by the 30 clip, though you can go with a 42 clip as a bonus the A3 is able to switch to 7.62mm instead of the 5.56mm. if you want to you can go with a full scope, granade launcher, 24" sniper length barrel. i have also heard good things on reliability as well as the light weight factor.
