Nice looking rifle. I'm not that keen on modern weapons, but the Heckler & Koch has something about it! There is something in the back of my mind telling me that there used to be a way of getting the SLR on full auto with the aid of a matchstick. Of course this could just be an army rumour that was circulating at the time (early 70's). I have an SLR with the older wood furniture fitted. I keep it as a reminder of the one I carried around NI. I do recall that when the SA80 was first being tested that we were told that the 5.56mm cartridge was specifically chosen for use on the streets of NI as the 7.62 was considered to be too powerful for urban warfare. Again though, this could have been just rumours circulating between us 'squaddies'.
