Those are Colt M4A1 carbines. Shortened and redone versions of the M16s. Extremely deadly with their special suppressor accessory. You can see them in action in the movie "Tears of the Sun" (with the kit used by the US Navy Seals).

Nice linky for you, Amit (Also the source of the images): Modern Firearms - M4 and M4A1 carbine / assault rifle



The SOPMOD kit for the M4A1, used by US Special Forces


Amit, I thought the big ones were .50 cal too. You like guns too? I've been a gun nut since I was a kid. Dad helped by getting me all the toy guns I wanted :-)

Nay!!! I don't want to be trigger happy.

I've lived in South Africa where it's just guns guns and galore!
let me tell you, this thingy may be a fascination for many but it's proven to be unworthy! Ask the long list of victims who were just shot for nothing. Innumerous signal lights get shot everyday, not even signboards are spared. Shooting at any unwanted stuff is the pass time there!
But does this all sound sane???

Wrong dude, wars existed much before firearms. Weapons were created because of wars, not the other way.

Correct me if i am wrong, but wasnt it the M4A in Counter Strike and not the M16?

Speaking of M4As, my friend just bought one...and i got to shoot it for a day. Very nice, and very good looking gun.

Theres a .22 conversion to make it a little more affordable to use regularly...

Wow! A Dragunov SVD! Best sniper rifle that side of the curtain. My personal fave (for automatic sniper rifles ) is the H&K PSG1. And in the bolt-action type, the Accuracy International AE.

The PSG1



The AI-AE


Video games are about the only way we can enjoy these babies :-(

Your personal favourite? Do we have a sniper on board...

My experience is basically with very old stuff, WW1, WW2 weapons like .303 lee enfield and 7.62 Bren light machine gun, from my NCC days.

Of all the disciplines of modern (and ancient) combat, I consider the art of sniping to be the highest. Getting to be a (good) sniper in the truest sense is something close to an art form. Something that requires more mental discipline than physical. So my favourite weapons are sniper rifles.

I've been hooked on sniping in particular after I'd read "Holding The Zero" by Gerald Seymour. That and another novel by him (the name's slipped my mind now - one about an Israeli Sniper) are among the best fictitious accounts of pure sniper-warfare. And the movie "Enemy at the Gates" (based on a real incident between 2 real snipers) is among the best in the genre (even better than the Sniper trilogy). After reading the novel I did a ton of research on the Net, read up Sniper manuals, training primers etc. (I'm not nuts, just really interested in this stuff).

And samurai, I have zero (hands-on) experience with anything but air-rifles :-) All the enjoyment is vicarious and from drooling at the pictures and reading reviews and watching the guns in action in movies. And you've handled a Bren? Awesome! They say accurate firing with the Bren on auto or slow-auto is close to impossible (unless you're lying down with it, and using the tripod) because of the monstrous recoil. I love using the Bren in Call of Duty.
