developing a real hatred for the sa-80, such a stupid gun!

it is functionally silly and needs to be replaced, and only started to work when h&k revised the design!
Real one is allegedly the most reliable bullpup config rifle in the world. Totally whooped the M16 in testing, went 60k more rounds without a jam. Far more accurate than any other weapon firing the same NATO cartridge, more contact points with the shooter due to the design. Looks badass. What's to not like? You crazy!
More space between the working parts is the key to firearm reliability. The M16 has bits all jammed up to each other like fat kids in an ice cream shop, no wonder it jammed when I shot one with the US Army cadets.
Only problems I've had with the cadet L85 are the plunger on the gas plug that gets stuck in the gas vent and the recoil spring that flies out of the rifle and hits the Company Commander when you open it up :/
