Oh come on.. that's like saying V-8 enigines suck because of the one they put in the Jeep Wranglers in the 80's. You picked the worst example for a known good and solid system. You could easily have said "the AK" or "G-36" but that wouldn't have supported your arguement because those guns are known to be quite reliable. Everyone knows the SA-80 is a huge SNAFU that actually makes the M-16 system look good. And if it can do that, it goes down in history with other such wonderful bits of firearms kit like the Chouchat.
