Iraqi forces in the Al-Intisar area in eastern Mosul in an ongoing military operation against Islamic State (IS) group jihadists, on January 1, 2017. Iraqi forces have retaken more than 60 percent of eastern Mosul from the Islamic State group since the battle for the city began in mid-October.

I have no idea what it is. Ejection appears weak though and the length of pull is really long:

They're Croatian bullpups. I think called the VHS from the same place that makes the Springfield Armory XD.

They must be really cheap if they're getting those instead of using all the AK's laying around. Perhaps they are being forced to convert to 5.56.

Good call.

I'm kinda digging it. I like this XM8ish variant with the integral sight and longer barrel with bayonet lug:

Iraqi Tactical Tango with the VHS:


Ejection looks fine. It's just erratic because of the 90-degree case deflector on the rear of the ejection port.

Picked this guy up back in December. It's my Trump gun. I went in to buy a Ruger Precision Rifle but they had sold it about an hour before I got there. I stopped for one of those new McDonald's steak and cheese breakfast sandwiches on the way, and had I not done that I would have had my Ruger. I'm not all mad, though, because those new McDonald's steak and cheese sandwiches are killer.

Royal Netherlands Marine Corps
Two students with the Royal Dutch Marine Sniper Instruction School work together to engage a target during marksmanship training at Grafenwoehr Training Area, Sept. 24. The students operated in teams, one student behind the rifle, while the other spotted shot placement and provided his teammate with elevation and deflection adjustments.

These Dutch Super Mags scored new scopes (Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 with illumination and double-turn elevation knob):

A student training with the Royal Dutch Marine Sniper Instruction School writes down target data during marksmanship training at Grafenwoehr Training Area, Sept. 24. All students used a mathematical formula to determine the ranges of unknown distance targets, in addition to training on short-to-mid distances, moving targets and night firing.
