I was poking through the Mexican commando photos on that thread last night, and saw a photo of their Naval Special Forces people carrying this image:

What kind of rifle is this guy carrying? Is it a Galil? It's obviously a version of an AK, in .223. Maybe a Krinkov - aren't those in Russian 5.45 x 39?

No, scotch the Krinkov idea; it's barrel's too long, with the wrong flash supressor.

Valmet?

ETA: He's exhibiting good trigger discipline. Perhaps we should hire him to educate Fineswine; she swept that audience like she meant to kill them all (too bad she didn't have an accident)

Grazi. Hope I don't meet this guy on a beach anywhere. I bet he'd do more than kick sand in my face and steal my girl.

Shitload is a technical term referring to a sum that is more than I care to count or can verify



I do believe the term you're looking for is "metric assload"

and good point on the R4, that is much more likely

a mix of military experience, internet geekdom, and a general lack of anything better to do.

I'm fascinated by military weapons and enjoy studying them.

I knew what it was because I own one. Mine is the 7.62mm version and the ARM version, with built in bipod.
