        Having a look at the pic that accompanied the snippet in An Costanoir, it looks like scoped FN's are being used by sniper team spotters.

              Those were Canadian rifles weren't they? The rifle was definitely a Parker- Hale.

                right inthe pic there are 3 men, the CPL on the left has the FN, and it is an FN while the SGT on the right has the sniper rifle, and I agree it does not look like any Accuracy international rifle to me, it's something else :confused:

                  I've done some searching and I think it's a parker hale m85 with a heavier barrel, but why would they change from the Accuracy international? :confused:

                          I don't think they use the ph M85, they use the m82, and they haven't used the FN for a long time, but you lad's are probably right

                            The other weapon is a scoped AR15 type, from what I recall of seeing the picture, considering the Canadians issue this type that would make sense.

                            Anyone able to post it here?
