    "I have intimate knowledge of this gun"
    Pros - Pure stopping power
    Cons - A tad heavy
    I was in the British Army by 1983 and used the British version of this gun which, we called the SLR or self loading rifle. The very first one I used had a wooden stock but later they made them in plastic. I carried this gun in Northern Ireland and during the first Gulf War.

    In 1992 I was deployed again to Northern Ireland but that time they issued me the very useless SA80.

    The SLR was my all time favourite weapon and I still believe I could field strip it with my eyes shut.

    As I said real stopping power and in addition and wonderful weapon.
