Another great presentation Lumpy!
As for the Plugged Pali, I think he'll know soon enough.
If you look at the pic of the dead Pali under him, you can see they took out the magazine on his AK too.

First time I've seen an EOTech used on an HK.

I would love to see what happens when this guy fires his weapon.

The title for the photo says” A masked Palestinian militant is pictured on the street during clashes with Israeli soldiers" WTF No way In hell His Clothes are New That’s The Best Looking AK I have ever seen the guys glasses are in Excellent shape, No dirt marks on his Knees. No Scars on His Hands or arms. I say This Photo is Staged Look at the Guys Eyes Looks like a Beagle Falling asleep.

I'm just curious.....

All those kneepads our boys are using. Are they in any way uncomfortable or otherwise restricting? Is it a simple matter that they provide more benefit than give any problems?

I've often wondered if being decked-out SWAT-style ever reached a point of diminishing returns.

Great pics as usual Lumpy.....your posts are the 1st things I look for!

Looks like this guy went down hard.......shot through the magazine.

I just wonder how reporters get shots like these, and how do they know where to go?

Arigato, Lumpy.

The Top of this unit needs to bitchslap his troops for deliberately wearing helmets 2 sizes too small, trying to look like Delta Force 'operators'. They are losing a lot of side and neck protection doing this.

Great pics again Lumpy............Thanks

You know I've noticed a lot of "post ban" type AKs in a lot of the news. I was watching one of the "Secret Soldiers" shows on the History channel where SF was training troops in Afganistan and they all had lug less AKs as well. Nice looking new ones with what looked like thread caps. Kinda like how NHM-91s were sold. You see it a lot in still photos like these as well. I'm wondering why they are coming equiped that way? Not saying anything is faked but I too was wondering what in the hell was in that guy's bbl. I've never seen anything like that.

Look at the brand new Bulgarians the Iraqi Nationals are holding a couple pics above that.



I noticed that Lumpy. Our waffle mag price better not go up! Off to see how many I've got stashed...

I think those are the new lightweight infantry combat helmets. If I remember right they offer better hearing ability, one of the down sides of the older PAGST K-pot was loss of hearing form the side and rear. Also when you are in the prone position they will not interfere with the rear trauma plate on the IBA. If you notice in some of the other pics you will see that these helmets have the new 3 point suspension system which will keep the helmet from falling down over you eyes as you run or if you hit the deck. IIRC

Great photos as always Lumpy

The Elcans have been issued with the 240s, but didn't know about the SAW.
If they don't want 240s on a mission you could mount them on 16s. The difference in calibration wouldn't mean shit in a MOUT environment.
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:16:52 PM EST
Thanks Lumpy, great pics as usual.

My theory on the lugless/threadless AK's. The Romanian, Chinese, and other factories producing AK's may have simply deleted them to make them US compliant. They sell us semi-only AK's, but I am sure the ones going to the ME are full auto. However, it would make sense from the manufacturing standpoint to just build ONE barrel, rather than TWO different configs.

Those are the new MICH helmets being issued. They are purposely designed to be that way because of troop complaints that it is hard to put you're head up while shooting from the prone with the new Interceptor body armor / old Kevlar helmet combo (it was virtually impossible,)I know I tried. The helmet is also a lighter weight and a hell of alot more comfortable.
