Looks more like an HK G36K but the contrast of the rifle in the receiver area just goes to hell, can't make out where the hell the charging handle is.

+1 on it being a G36 variant.

It looks like a G36k, not a Sig.

It IS a G-36 and that photo (or ones very similar to it showing Captial Security) have been shown on this site since 9/11 - all were carrying G36s

The stock, dual magazines, ambi selector and the flash hider are the giveaways.

Yep, a nice lil G36, if only I could buy one.
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 11:14:00 AM EDT
That looks nothing like an AR, not a single thing...

Looks more like a wide screen TV, or atleast that's what the one I held felt like.    Was the full length rifle with that god awful dual optic, christ almighty can you say "OBSTRUCTED FIELD OF VIEW"?   Bulky clunky pile of HK that it was with typical HK ergonomics.

Anyhow, atleast the G36K pictured has a better optic installed on it.
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 3:16:09 PM EDT
Well whether you like it or not, It has a certain unspoken message...
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 3:19:01 PM EDT
Very Cool. Me like. Stupid friggin import ban. HK would have given us the G36, instead we got the SL8
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 3:21:45 PM EDT
Geez, that stock looks so long. I dont think I could shoulder that weapon and shoot it properly.
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 3:27:35 PM EDT
I think he ment AR as in: Assault Rifle.

Hey at least he didnt say...Look at those CLIPS!

It is the same color as an AR.

Actually I think it is a G36C, I think the K does not have the bipod, has a shorter handguard and butstock.

Er, yeah... Assault Rifle! Yeah...

CLIPS are the things that go PING after you put your 8 through your M1.

Clips... don't get me started... Jeez

Pic is a dupe. Someone has a thread stating it's a G36 now in use with D.C. Police. I think it's in the GD Forums.
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 5:14:42 PM EDT

Other way around, the G36C is the most compact model, the 36K being the medium length one.

The pictured weapon is the G36K

Charging handle is on top of the receiver in front of the Aimpoint. His is sticking out to right of the weapon.

never shot it, but "clunky pile" pretty much covered how it handled.

My bad.....

That looks nothing like an AR or Sig 552. It's obviously a G36 variant.
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 9:16:26 PM EDT
I play Counter Strike to much...only reason I thought it was a sig was because of the mags...don't hate me for being dumb

People shouldn't use video games as a real reference to weapons and their titles...
.

I hate it when the guys I live around try and tell me what a weapon is..."because I know man, it's on this game I was playing..."

I'm just joshing though.
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 9:31:01 PM EDT
Hell I don't play that many games lol.

Hell all I knew is that it wasn't an AR....

It's a trick of the camera angle; the stock isn't really terribly long, it just looks that way.

My local county sheriff's department uses G36s and MP5/40s.

What about this type of AR?   Guys with pistols (.45's) were given these in my troop during the first gulf war.
