    Well that soldier has a beard so I'm guessing that he is with the Austrialian SASR or another special operations group as they get a lot more choice in personal firearm's selection. Just a guess though.

    I believe the Browning Hi-Power pistol is the standard-issue service pistol in the Austrialian armed forces and that since the one in the picture is most likely a HK USP that this would also support the conclusion that this soldier is SASR.

    Hmm, maybe we should adopt their tactics.

    Haha, yeah if that guy was an American Soldier on the boarder he would currently be up on trumped up charges of assault or abuse of authority with all kind of personal lawsuits from the whole alphabet of liberal groups (ACLU, NACCP, La Raza).

    Besides didn't you here el Presidente Busho just two days ago when said "we have to extend foreign workers paths to citizenship, it is what the American people demand." I don't think these rich politicians who are listening to the corporate famers, Walmarts, and rich folks with illegal housekeepers have a clue about what American people want anymore.

    Apples and oranges Th0r. One country was born in 1776, the other 1999. One has an established government capable of self governing the other has a democratic government with no funds to sustain it due to lack of resources.

    Hey Shooter,

    I don't know about other countries but the designation here would be AR10, it was never adopted by the US government so it wouldn't technically have an M designation. That and dependant on the model (original with charging knob in the carrying handle, or typical AR charging handle at the rear) wouls also make a difference since the new AR10's haven't been adopted by anybody officially to my knowledge.

    the rifle actually looks more like an SR25 (Kight's Armament). the Mag has a raised rib at the back for the Mag catch(Armalite doesn't), the forearm looks like a Knight's FF RAS, and the rail covers on the forearm have the Knight's Armament locking tab.
