Other weaponry...

Post by Ryan » Sun May 27, 2012 3:28 am

This is a topic to discuss other weaponry used in CQC.

For instance there are many more types of battle rifles used around the world.

What do people say.. think of the FN FAL and its configurabilities/versions?
Or
Fighting with a sniper/marksman rifle in CQC like the SR-25 or M110?
Or
The use of a Grenade Launcher (M203, M320, etc) within room clearance?

Battlerifles in CQB are not ideal, obviously because of things like weight, length and the fact that it uses a full power rifle calibre. Using a sub compact battle rifle that has a shortened barrel length doesn't help much either.



As for M203 in room clearance is possible with a variety of rounds like CS, buckshot etc. Obviously can't use HE rounds not only because of the obvious reason of collateral damage to hostages/innocent civilians etc etc but also because the CQB distances probably won't allow the round to arm before it hits something anyway (needs to travel ~25m before arming).

True, I wonder if they'll ever make a flashbang or ball bearing varient. HE would be used in military operations though, no doubt about it.

I asked RB1 about that M203 grip-technique I saw (an actual grip, not a product!)...

I saw a grip you used on the M203 on an episode of Tactical Arms/Impact a while back, you were talking about how accurately you could get it and how useful the range of 40mm's were... You turned it on it's side, still up by the shoulder and shot it through a small window. What is this grip/hold called?

Redback One

Rye, there really isn't a name to the technique. That's what we teach at RB1 for targets inside of 100 meters with little to no time to get onto the quadrant sights. Also by turning it 'palm-down' so the right side of the weapon is upper most (right handed shooter), you will mitigate the Barrel-Sight offset when firing internally during urban warfare. This will enhance security as soldiers will not have to overexpose themselves when firing through windows etc.
