  • Some Australian F88 Images

    G'Day Fella's,

    Here is an image (taken in 2002), of myself with a couple of Australian made Austeyr F88's!
    You might notice, they are both "Flat Tops" and one has a Pistol length barrel!!!
    By the way, there are 6 more of these on the floor, at my feet........

      I like the short-barreled one; whats the approximate OAL on that rifle, Homer?

        350mm, hardly a pistol barrel! ha ha
        The PWS MK107 7.75" (196.85mm) Diablo's , now they're pistol length! Aren't the SASR using some of them?

          G'Day Fella's,

          S12R, thanks for your In Action image and Thank You for your service to our nation!!!

          GSR, I'm not sure of the exact measurement but a reckon it's OAL, would be between 650 and 700mm?

          T-T, I agree it is not that short but as far as the authorities are concerned, anything barrel less than 408mm/16" (despite whats behind it), is considered a Handgun!

        Geez, memories. All our vehicle crews were issued F88C's.
        As scouts, we had a choice of rifle or carbine. I always preferred the normal rifle with 20in barrel, simply for the bayonet boss - and it wasn't just to fix a pig-sticker on the end of the muzzle.
        It was so I could do this:
        Where we are, where we belong, where we should be.

          good bit of ingenuity there 22F, the F88SA2 comes with a torch ring for surefires on the RHS , before that on the F88SA1 we were using rail mounts that offset to the side

        Wow. I remember picking up one of these at the Royal Melbourne show in the early 90's. Cool
        Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.
