So we are a sort of cousin's.

I think I have got your point when you mention the "?"

I like it!

Perhaps I should have writen "Paris, France?"

Certainly.
But it must have been an interesting / funny experience!

I believe the US experimented with a heavy barrel for the M15, but it wasn't adopted.
The British never used the heavy barreled version of the FAL (L2A1), that was a Canadian/Australian thing.

The British continued to used the BREN gun, now converted to 7.62mm and renamed the L4, the L4A4 being the most common version.

The M15 was the actual heavy barreled version of the M14, the barrel was quite a bit bigger. They felt that the dedicated heavy version was not warranted and just used a minimally modified regular M14...

All I can say is if you don't have good control you'll be shootin down planes after the third round. Aim low and with a three round burst you can put one each in the groin, chest and head.

Thanks from Buldozer
