SA80 (Small Arms for 1980s) is a family of related arms that include the British Armed Forces's standard combat rifle. Originally manufactured by the Royal Small Arms Factory (now BAE Systems Land Systems Munitions & Ordnance), they were introduced into service in 1985 and will likely remain the primary infantry weapon in British use until 2015.

The SA80 family is made of four weapons, the L85 IW (Individual Weapon or "Rifle"), the L86 LSW (Light Support Weapon), the L22A1 Carbine (often referred to as the SA80A2 Carbine or SA80A2K) and the manually operated L98A1 CGP (Cadet General Purpose).

All four are similar in most respects — they all fire the 5.56 x 45 mm NATO round from a 30-round detachable box magazine, and can mount the SUSAT (Sight Unit; Small Arms; Trilux), a 4x optical sight with a tritium-powered glowing pointer for limited night sighting as well as the CWS (Common Weapon Sight) — an image intensifying sight for night use. The weapons are designed in the bullpup configuration with pistol grip forward of the magazine and the mechanism in the buttstock. This allows the use of a long, accurate barrel in a weapon with compact dimensions.

Rifles issued to Combat Arms are equipped with the SUSAT, while rifles issued to Combat Support Arms and Combat Service Support Arms, and cadets, are equipped with a simple iron sight incorporating a carrying handle. LSWs are issued with SUSATs in all cases, though they are usually seen fitted with iron sights for jungle use due to the short ranges likely there.

Wasted oppurtunity!


The purchase & approval of the L85 was politically motivated, it was rushed through & poorly designed, the rest is history. The purchase of the battle proven M16/M4 series would have been a far more sensible thing to do, but hey that's politics right?.
The L85 is very accurate with a good rate of fire, aside from that its fragile & anything but soldier proof!!
