What rifle are the soldiers currently carrying in Iraq? Does anyone know from top to bottom. I heard a lady at the show telling some fella that the scope he wanted was real hot because that is what the soldiers were currently using. I know dumb question. But I am a Maxpain

Sorry, couldn't help myself. You hear all kinds of crazy crap at the gun shows. What kind of scope was it?

I've seen pix from the sandbox with a little of everything. Are you wanting to know manufacturers, configurations, accessories or what?


BTW, no such thing as a dumb question. hr


Not sure. I was passing by and heard the lady telling some people that story. She was making it sound good. Could have been a sales pitch. Just general stuff. I thought m16's. But wasn't sure on scopes, etc. Look like some may have grenade lauchers on them.hought
