    Basically, because it's the most potent round we are allowed as semi automatic in the UK.

    We aren't allowed .17HMR, but are allowed .22 WMR as semi, go figure!

    Hi Brian, thanks for your kind words. I have to be honest and say my A4 build is possibly my favourite rifle to shoot, I just wish it wasn't so expensive to feed!

    Hi Ron, the plan is for the MX5 to be permanently fitted with a moderator, to reduce recoil and blast, that 13" barrel without would produce a three foot flame I should think!

    I certainly wouldn't want to get hit by Sig's new 6.8 round Gil, it packs one hell of a wallop, designed to defeat modern body armour, so that tells you it doesn't play nicely with others mate!!
