    Whats the yellow think for removing the flash hider?
    Yep, like Friwi said. It is a BFA (blank firing attachment) so that the weapon functions like live with blank ammunition.

    Blank Firing Attachment BFA

    77grain SMKs are awesome (for a 223). My NEA could shoot consistent 15mm groups with them.

    Cant remember exactly.. they were slow with ADI powder though. Think it might have been AR2208 getting around 2550 from the 18 inch barrel. I am sure you can soup that up (don't take my word for it and hurt yourself though).

    A mate of mine re-enlisted to prove a point that 38yr olds can still put boot to arse. He's back at 6RAR QLD again, 20 years after we marched out for the last time.

    @Dead is better have you been visiting some sort of gay military interest site?

    So that must be the new Steyr. I can see why we chose the AR15.

    Their new steyrs don't look too bad but apparently the triggers are just as bad as I remember. Hope the cocking handles don't snap off anymore

    The top one... they started using them a few years back, the are designed to stop a few live rounds,in the unfortanante event.

    As you can see they add at least another 3in to the weapons overall length. Bottom on is for the gun.
