  • SA-80 Mark 2 K

    Has anybody seen the above rifle it is a shortened version of the SA-80. Apparently Medics and Tankies are getting first choice on it.

        Interesting that the optic sights are on the weapon, usually non infantry combat units used the metal sights.

          But is all the weight still in the butt?

              dont know much about the sa 80 L86 except your local bin man would be confused as wether to place it in the recycle bin or send it to landfill i am under the impression the manufaturers offered the weapon with different barrell lenghts but the mod chose a standard model for all arms id be highly suprised if they would waste money on short barreled models

                looks like a good idea, i would like to fire it to see how it feels, i have not heard anything about it yet. But I have to admit i like the idea of it. I'm surprised the paras have not got first issues of it yet

                  I have a pic of the SA-80K which is different from FMolloys.

                  Any comments?

                    Does anyone else think it looks even shorter than the one in the first pic?

                      It would appear to be - look at the front grip and compare with the length of barrel in front of the trigger. The first picture has a name SA80BP not SA80K if that makes a difference.

                        Now you can have a shortened SA 80...... that still jams.

                          Looks like the SA 80 really wants to grow up and be just like its big sister the Steyr. Is the SA 80 modular just like Steyr because if it isn't shouldnt they just equip Vehicle / Non combat troops with an MP5 PDW or similar. The new SA 80 is just a rehash of a very flawed design. It's now 2004 and British troops are going to war with a weapon called the Small Arm for the 80's. As much as we complain about having no Fighter jets etc. I reckon Irish troops have better personal equipment than the Brits.

                            Isn't the SA-80 mechanism based off the AR-18? If so, it's better than most. Only problem is they muffed up the initial execution of it.

                              You are correct Tanker.
