Looks top, is that a new version of the SA80 some of them are using? No it's an sa80 with Weaver mounts for tactical grip, scope, sight, laser, hand rail, hand guards ect. Do you think you'll be able to use something similar in training, or will it just be the standard rifle with none of the gucci ...
