Three 'new' weapons I'd like to see in a mod

Post by [BIG] Ranger » Thu Jun 21, 2007 1:38 am

A couple of rifles I'd like to see in a mod - which reflect changes in 'military thinking' about calibres - are the:-

> 7.62mm DSA Inc. SA58 PARA Elite Compact Tactical - http://www.dsarms.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SA58ELITE

> 6.5mm Grendal - http://www.65grendel.com/

> 6.8mm Barrett - http://www.gunblast.com/Barrett-M468.htm


Due to the Iraq experience there has been a bit of a re-think about the 5.56mm x 45mm NATO round - due to it's apparent lack of penetration and stopping power.

The vogue is now for large calibres again (du-oh!) - and while the initial stop-gap was the trusty 7.62mm (with many US troops preferring to use modernized and tactical modded M14s) - there have been two new calibres developed which are said to be better - balistically - than the old 7.62mm x 51mm NATO round.

These are the 6.8mm Remington and the 6.5mm Grendal.

Both of the calibres have been accompanied by 'new' versions of the M16/M4 design. The 6.5 Grendal, in fact, being a direct conversion of existing M16/M4 stock, with new receiver and top deck. The 8.6mm calibre is being championed by the famous Barrett company.

I would like to see these included in a new gun mod as they reflect up-to-date thinking about military rifles - superceeding even the G36/SCAR rifles that are the vogue in mods.

I should have added - but maybe you guessed...

The DSA SA58 is a conversion of the trusty FN FAL rifle. In particular the PARA, folding stock model, with added RIS and SureFire forward grip/torch.

I'm not sure is ANYONE is modeling classic GhR weapons anymore, but these would be terrific I think.

Over at ghostrecon.net, they are a few that still model weapons.
