Idea For New Service Rifle

Post by Hardman476 on Sat 08 Mar 2008, 6:34 am

what do you think, i have idea to bin the SA 80 and replace it with something better; The walther g22 but in .223 cal. with 3o rd mag (not the standard 10 rd mag) with single, burst, full auto modes of fire.

I own one (the current .22lr) its a new version, it doesnt jamb and is very reliable and accurate.

even with a .223 version you could still have a space for the mag holder as well which makes mag changes very quick.

What about sights? You would need a laser designater/rangefinder type to get the right distance.

Yeah, it looks good and that but will it fit on a rifle? The new one I mean? does it go over the barrel or under it like when you tape a torch onto it?

Could work but it would be more like the Ruger Mini 14 and would suit the use of Militia/Security Forces rather than an official military service rifle. The "G556"(Walther G22 in 5.56) would need a grenade capable/bayonet lugged flash hider, A STANAG magazine(M16 type) insert that would enable the use of 20/30/40 round magazines alongside the 90 Rounder/100 round C-MAG drums, The ability to mound an underbarrel Grenade Launcher/Shotgun.

Most importantly, The G22 uses Blowback operation which works well with pistol rounds, The "G556" would need a Delayed-Blowback/Gas operaton as rifle rounds are more powerful and have to be locked in the chamber for a bit longer than pistol rounds when fired until the gas pressure reaches a safe level to extract and reload a new round. If normal Blowback operation was used with a rifle cartridge, The rifle would be dangerous as there will be a breech explosion.
