ID these weapons...

Recommended Posts

All you world travelers, help me ID any of these weapons from somewhere in Africa. Interesting lot of toys my friend is playing with.

The ones that are similar on the table look like early and later versions of the South African R4 - basically a Galil copy.

The one the guy is holding up looks like a SIG 550.

The large barrel with the muzzle brake in the foreground looks like a Barrett M82A1.

Don't know what the wood stocked rifle is immediately adjacent to the Barrett.

 

ETA: the dark brown tubs on the table to the extreme left of the photo look like typical South African ammo containers.

I just have to say that I think the contrast is funny. Here are all these military style guns, guys in camo uniforms, and tires stacked around. Your friend looks like he could be out at the mall.  I hope he had fun though. I would love to get some time with guns like that.

Lol. He does look like he's at the mall. I'm sure he is having a blast. He's retired 18z working civ contract for Africom so he gets to play with toys.

Those are Galils (or clones) on the table, he is holding a Sig 550. The Barret is the closest in the foreground, that does indeed look like a integrally suppressed Sterling behind him, and the gun closest to the camera appears to be a Barrett. I can't tell what is just above the Barrett.

      Ok not sure if this is the right place but there didn't seem to be a better one. On occasion I buy a cheap AR lower when I can find them, they sit and wait until I decide what to build them into. I bought one yesterday while in Sevierville. The new ATF forms now specifically ask if it is a long gun or handgun. WHY? I haven't made up my mind yet. So now it looks like I have to build it into a long gun because I had to choose on the spot, and I just recently built a pistol. It just don't make sense. Oh and bought a new carry gun Saturday but that is for another thread.

      Anyone have any experience with these?  The price on the lowers is a little steep, but I kinda like them aesthetically.   Without being able to try one out though I was wondering if the ergonomics felt right or if it was just awkward in practice.

      Came across this modified one a while back (I think it was on ARFCOM).  I don't remember who the person was, but it sure came out awesome!

      I asked this 5 years ago on another forum and never got an answer. So I’ll ask it here. Anyone know the barrel OD diameter in the area shown?
