Just the latest attempt to turn the SA80A2 into a rifle.
I confess I have never fired one,
but I have fired the Steyr AUG and the French FAMAS, and have only handled an SA80 - they all felt very similar, in that they were butt heavy, especially the SA80 - which was very unwieldy and rattled quite noticably, I also managed to drop the magazine by accidentally brushing the release catch against my body.
ts should just go back to the L1A1 with a 16 inch barrel and an Aimpoint or ACOG - I can't help but feel it would serve them better, especially in Afghanistan in spite of the heavy ammo.
