Wow, looks like the Canadian Army really wants to find a replacement for the Parker Hale...I'd been told it always aqquitted itself very well and the new Mcbros stocks were great. Seems like some great weapons are being looked at though. What do you guys think and what would your pic be?

I really think that test will be run again soon.

I wish they had the Sako TRG-42 on that list, it belongs.

I'd take the sako if it was an option, the AI otherwise (though some quality issues with AI have been croping up). The LRS2 is a fine weapon but they also have had some problems, and I'm still not sold on the straight pull. The Hectate is a decent rifle, but it makes me look at it funny :wink:

whats the difference between a TRG-41 and a TRG-42?

I dunno but when I see Hecates I see a Mas 36...those things are funky.

I'd really rather see a Finnish SAKO TRG-42 on this list than any of those alternatives.

Odd that the C3A1 is being retired though... I thought we'd at least make it to C3A5. The C7 is currently at "A2" status.

I know, it seems like C3 is still a great system...Maybe they want to introduce a middleman between 308 and 50...but replacing 308 wouldnt do that.

Wow, Kamatz is still kicking :)

Hmm...lets see...if they are replaced now...they will probaby be "phased out" in the year 2100 or so, and you can buy em then.

just kiddin, for all I know they'll have to soldier on for a couple more years at least though.

Well, I hate to say this, but the Canadians are not ones to "surplus" their sniper rifles. I researched into getting their old phased out C3's (when being replaced by the C3A1's). Amazingly enough, they were destroyed by order of the government. :cry:

I heard a few may have made their way to the Law Enforcement community, but I could never confirm that.

Destroyed? Whoa! Pretty extreme...I'm toasting to those ones with my coffee cup right now. I hope some did go to LE agencies who gave them a good home.

I thought the C3s were all rebuilt into the current form by upgrading the scope and stock.

Still sad though...*sigh*...I wonder what they think of soldiers "bringbacks" of non restricted weapons?

When the Australian army replaced thier Parker Hales with Accuracy International rifles they placed the M85's in War Reserve.

Because the Australian Government has a little thing called logic. That's in painfully short supply up here in the land of Gznark.

Reservists don't have access to C3A1s, AFAIK. Also, I don't think they have snipers either.

mmmmmmmm.... would I like to get ahold of one of those...

Didn't the Australian Army have M82's ? Either way, the comment above stands.
