This is (at time of writing) the standard
of all mainstream British
forces, (RAF, Army, Navy etc.). It also goes by the name "L-85" and is basically crap
It is apparently
soon to be replaced by the M-16
as it has been fraught
by problems, like the fact that it jams if a tiny amount of water
gets in. Very annoying when you're in battle
It has semi and fully automatic
modes, and is powered by a gas cylinder stored above the barrel. It is ergonomically designed and the pistol grip fits snugly into the right hand. The sights can be adjusted quickly for 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. It also comes with a battle-sight for use when the main sight is flipped down.
Oh, and it fires NATO
standard 5.56mm rounds.
