Actually, the biggest innovation I noticed was the way that on some of those rifles they installed their optics so nice and low to the boreline. That way you can ergonomically tilt your head sideways and stare at the back of the front sight instead of trying to figure out the right "cheekweld" or whatever.

Is there such a thing as upper 3/16ths co-witness? Seems like that might make the sight picture a little 'busy'.

Supposedly Turkey was going to make a licensed copy of the HK 416. Did that ever happen?

From what I hear, it's supposed to be a self-cleaning design. I bet they'll save a fortune not having to buy cleaning kits and solvents. Early models probably won't even need any chrome in their chambers. :awesome:

It's to show you that the Turkey Seals use them in their underwater demolitions and shootemups.

So, if 'm understanding correctly...

...Eugene Stoner was... Turkish?

...and JMB was Portuguese, and Mikhail Kalashnikov was from Tibet?

Finally, the Turks will be able to fight back effectively against the Poodle Liberation Army.

Rule of thumb:

The more offensive something you say is, the funnier it has to be to be considered acceptable. There are few things more offensive than genocide. Thankfully, your line was hilarious.

Please also refer to Jimmy Carr`s comments on the holocaust (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rzb_p1mRW1M" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;).

Well ... no.

Turkey: not a thirld world nation.
Turkish military: deemed worthy of NATO approval, meeting high standards in training and equipment. Also, NATO's second-largest army.

Also: MKE G3 clones: awesome.

Now Turkey will finally be able to defend themselves against an army of poodles!

Seriously though, let's get some $400-$500 Turkish ARs!

As a member of NATO they would quite literally be a first world country.

YEah, just like we'll never get those Turkish UTS-15s, MK1919A1s, or 1911s.
