    Saw it on Fox News tonight. I think they were Army troops. They did not appear to be spec ops, but I couldn't tell. Anyway, my wife and I were eating dinner and I nearly jumped out of my seat. I may not be the most learned when it comes to issue weapons of our military, but I had no idea we issued bullpups. They had the smoke opaque magszines, too, which made me think of an HK or Sig, but I checked the their web pages and didn't see any bullpups. I'm going crazy on the Internet trying to identify it. Very cool rifle indeed!. Please help me - what was it?

    Oh, wait, were these British soldiers?

    I'd guess they were Aussie coalition forces using the Steyr AUG.

    Or was it a bullpup like this?

    If they had smoke-colored plastic mags, it was the Aussie Break-O-Matic 2000; if they had black sheet metal STANAG mags, it was the Brit Jam-O-Matic 9000. ;)

    the jam-o-matic 9000 can be used for flute solos:

    Gun-fucious has it. They were definitely not Steyr Augs.



    Tamara,

    I thought they were smoke-colored, but was probably wrong.


    BTW, I like the gear those Brits are wearing. They only look like they weigh as much as a small European car. Maybe that's what they have inside.

    If only the BATF saw them as musical instruments.

    "It's Jethro Tull's Iraqi '03 Tour!"

    I gotta say, I think blaring out Locomotive Breath through loud speakers (ala Kelly's Heroes) would get the troops motivated.

    In keeping with the Jethro Tull theme, how about "Steel Monkey" for the Ingerish gun bunnies!:D

    Nope - he's just refilling the air chamber. :) Hasn't anyone heard of an air rifle before?

    Well, the appropriate tune is Auqalung, because that soldier is using his rifle for a handkerchief. So you know what is running down his nose!! :D

    In hopes of improving the reliability of the SA80, the Brits have ordered their troops to explore alternate lubricants. Sand-filled snot is just one of the substances being tested.
