Ah, yes, Nick, that is exactly what I mean. The gun with the barrel extending into the stock to make it shorter. I beleive that the Swiss and/or the Aussi's have that as well, but I might be wrong.

We don't use them apart from a handful of special forces troops who act in the same sort of role as SWAT teams in the US. Because quite frankly they're ****.
There is a carbine version of the L85 (SA80) which is issued to tank crews and Apache helicopter pilots.

Here in NZ, `tis the Steyr Aug. Before that, it was the M16, basically. Sniper-wise, I think it would still be the Enfield or FN-SLR. Not certain about SAW equivalent, but think it to be the GMP60. Given the average age of NZ equipment though, I'd not be surprised to find the squad automatic was a Vickers MG or a Maxim from the same era. :rolleyes::rolleyes::lol:
