Lee Enfield? Your cadet contingent must have been stuck in the War or something. I think my contingent was the biggest in Britain (or one of them at least), and even though our kit was rubbish, we still had modern weapons.

We had L98's and LSW's. The LSW was utter crap - jammed after about 4 shots each time.

I've fired an L96 sniper rifle, driven a 14ton lorry with lifting gear, ridden in an AS90... those days were fun. But I've had enough of the army.

Master of common sense. If you don't like it, stop reading.

Damn if I'd have lots and lots of money and could get an OICW from somewhere I definitely would.
That's because it's unpractical. It's a neat gun, but just too unweildy in battle.

They're going with the XM-8, which is awesome because it's a modular system, so you can modify a single XM-8 into many variants. Heckler & Koch is awesome...

I think theres some lawsuit going on though...something about Colt's contract with the Army and this and that...bleh.
