Sig 516 good to 100 yards?
« on: November 19, 2015, 09:06:38 am »
So here is the "article":

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3322976/Chilling-new-face-police-Britain.html

Most importantly, that cop is cute. I can tell these things just from the eyes. I was not "chilled" by her face at all.

Next the effective range of a Sig 516 is 100 yards or 115 yards ?  Are they off by 400 yards or is this a special urban version of the rifle?

"Secure tactical encrypted firearm channel".  Is that on SiriusXM? or Spotify?

OK so here is the real question, is everyone involved with the production of this article that lazy or is this misinformation for the enemy?

    It's from the Daily Mail, so probably both.

    British police marksman.  It is their effective range.  In the hands of an American, 500 yards. :neener

    If the Daily Mail says the sky is blue you should probably go outside to check.

    Also judging from the handguard and stock I think that's an mcx not a 516...

    The only thing worse than the article is the comments.

    That's exactly what it is...very different from a 516 which only has a moderately passing resemblance to a MCX.  Reading that article (and comments) made my head hurt.

    How is a woman in tac gear a "robocop"?  I was expecting power armor or something.  Apparently the "transparent magazine" and "padded knees" are also significant to the writers.  Insert sexist joke here.

    Ooh, and those gloves are KEVLAR REINFORCED!  That sounds tough and scary!  I'm guessing British cops don't like getting poked with needles anymore than American cops do.

    The 9mm Glock only has an effective range of 150 feet?

    Whoever wrote that article doesn't know their butthole from a bucket of buttermilk

    Edited to add, I concur with it being an MCX. I'm issued a 516 and it's different from what is pictured

    Huh, I wonder what brand of watch she's wearing? That's definitely more interesting.

    I also like her taste in blades. That's a Benchmade Triage, if I'm not mistaken, in her trouser pocket  :thumbup1.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
