That's not saying much...

Hammerforged barrels for example. And offering the automatic selection as a standard on their C7's and C8 as well as triburst if desired. Other than that, they are the same as FN's and Colts.

What profile is that barrel? M4, HBAR or lighweight?

There's a really good chapter on the history of the adoption and development of the C7 and C8 rifles in the book "The Black Rifle." I'm rather fond of the C7 and C8 series myself, as I have always liked the "set it and forget it" A1 upper mated with the A2 brass deflection pylon. [heavy]

Barrel profile on the C8 carbine is lightweight, the profile on the C7 is A2 profiled. Kuiper

Here are newer variants of the C8, the C8 FTHB and the C8 SFW . I guess it is one of these two that is most likely the variant used by the British SAS, since they procuired a shipment of Diemaco carbines recently.
