they should have brought a third friend with a M14 with fun switch. :D

Karl talking of greying out may have to with shooting next to the wall indoors and a muzzle brake on the end which directs expanding gas to the sides, which is then thrown back at the shooter in this confined space. I have only shot G3 on fun setting on open air ranges and they were controllable and keep the bullets on a three men target built from these:

But overall the G3 twists and turns each cycle in all directions before it straightens itself again for the next shot. Definitely not easy.

 

C8 is essentially M4. The gas port location was largely driven by ONE factor. M7 bayonet.

 
 
The M4 barrel length is totally random anyway. Driven by the totally important requirements of mounting the bayonet, the M203 grenade launcher and that it does not blast eardrums like the 11,5" short carbines that the XM177 and CAR-15 had been. One quick fix taped to the other to make it work somehow.
 
Instead of looking into ballistics like muzzle velocity, how to make it function reliably through timing of the events during firing cycle etc. as was done for the C8. Had they put the longer AR-10/A5 length receiver extension and buffer in it they would have checked all the boxes. But you know that already. ;)

fourty years already? Still looks like a futuristic space age gun. :)

 

 

The Steyr AUG aka Sturmgewehr 77 is getting into its best years.

Are they planning versions in other calibers? And, for Pete's sake, finally a quick-switch left/right ejection window? :D

It looks like the Aussie F90 is the latest iteration:

Fair enough, as far as I'm concerned :D Just it being the trend and stuff...

Now, an AUG in 6.5 Grendel would be an interesting thing. Just to see something new :D

Should be easier be built from a Tavor as there is a 7,62*39 version of it already.

Though about a decade ago one of the AUG designers presented a further developed rifle that was changeable to 556, 545 and 762 with just a barrel and bolt head swap. which was just as easy as on the AUG. Sadly no takers for the design. shold have needed just a 6,5 Grendel barrel.

One one of his visits, Oleg had a Schwarzlose blow forwards pistol in his bag of interesting stuff.  Oddest thing to try to handle.

new "wildcat" 9,6x53mm Lancaster from Russia. Of course based on the good old 7,62x54R mm case. Makes me wonder, if the wildcat should not have a big R too?

Intended for use in oval shaped Lancaster "rifling" to circumvent russian firearms laws.
