British Army snipers demonstrate the superb operating capability of the new Long Range Rifle on the ranges of the Land Warfare Centre in Warminster. The L115A3 Sniper Rifle has an effective range of more than 1 kilometre and fires an 8.59mm bullet which is less likely to be deflected over extremely long ranges.

Snipers in the Army, Royal Marines and RAF Regiment are to get the new rifle, providing them with more power, precision and stealth than ever before. The rifle is also equipped with all-weather day and night sights and laser technology, allowing for accurate targeting around the clock.

Specialist weapons instructor WO2 ‘Howie’ Howard described the L115A3 as ‘an awesome bit of kit which greatly increases the sniper’s accuracy and reach. It has been brought into service following feedback from our guys operating in theatre and I believe it to be a world-class weapon’.

580 of the new rifles, which are manufactured by British firm Accuracy International, are being supplied as part of the broader Sniper System Improvement Programme.

I didn't know that The Hague Convention allowed for the "execution upon capture" of "non-uniformed" combatants. Also that the US never signed Article IV.

So now hollow-points will be issued to regular troops-about time.

This kid scored too:


His AUG has the factory sling and bayonet lug. Even the Governor didn't get that. He got some jizz sling and no bayonet lug:

Love the black stocks and white slings. I wish they had the bayonets mounted.

L115A3 Super Magnum with blank firing attachment and blank magazine:


Quote:
Riflemen on the 1 RIFLES Sniper Cadre have been practicing their skills in the Urban environment. Stalking targets in the countryside is difficult but to do so in a built up area that may be full of obstacles and civilians is even harder. 1 RIFLES' Snipers employ specialist camouflage and difficult techniques to work effectively in urban areas. Once in position they will set themselves back from windows so they can't be seen from outside even when they engage the target.

1 RIFLES' Snipers are a key asset to the Battalion. They operate at range from other Friendly Forces and can observe the enemy at long distances. Once they've found the enemy they can engage them without being seen before extracting in secret ready to fight another day.

Note how that L115 has an L96 bipod on it.

There's also some Defender love in the background.

Agreed. Guy #2 is pointing his MP5 to the left of Guy #1, though it looks like he's sweeping the hell out of him.

I saw this on The Firearm Blog:


Quote:
This is why we do not recommend the use of non spec Reloaded ammunition in HK 91’s or any HK roller lock for that matter. This was from a customers HK91 that blew his mag well open and contained the blast but destroyed the chamber, bolt head and firing pin. No injuries but it’s not worth the risk unless you need or want facial surgery. The customer went on to use the same reloaded ammunition in his FN FAL and had to go to the hospital after it blew the FAL in half.

This is bullshit. I want to see pics of the kaboomed FAL.
