The term "battle rifle" is a colloquialism that is generally used to refer to rifles firing a full caliber cartridge and generally are select fire. After WWII, many nations decided to forego intermediate rounds in favor of heavy hitting, powerful fully automatic long arms that lasted until intermediate cartridges seized the day. In this video, we take a look at 5 that we consider the best.

    I am from the UK and used the FN. FAL. ie. SLR in action in Aden 1965. Yea I'm an old guy, but when the sh1t hits the fan it will pump out the rounds magazine after magazine. On testing on open ground in seriously high temperatures it proves to be very accurate firing on semi auto with iron sights. Great gun, served me well in my time of serious need.

    We had the G3 in the Danish army when I served back in the 90's. The rifles were old and worn out and unreliable as f**k. In the late 90's they were replaced with the Diemaco C7.

  • MrViking

    I have used the G3 extensively over many years in the Norwegian Army. First as a conscript in the early 90s, then as a reservist for about 20 years, until I served 3,5 years in the Home Guard QRF with the newer HK 416 before I retired in 2014. I have also tried the FN-FAL. Out of these three, I liked the FAL the most. The 7,62 round gives it a kick I really like and it has a tighter feel than the G3. The G3 is extremely solid, though. Sand, snow, or water, it still shoots great. The 416 is a different rifle than these two oldies. Much more accurate, but way more complicated. Yet I might buy the civilian 416 someday. $3000 is quite expensive, though. Unfortunately, G3s and FN-FALs are not for sale in Norway.

    I would go for the G3 all day long. Served as a conscript in 1997 and had a wooden version from 1959 that shot very accurate. Later I got the G36. That was better during an exercise as it was lighter and you could carry it like a rucksack, but it was like a toy compared to the G3

    Why didn't you mention the hk91 308, this rifle is currently being used in battle in. the Ukraine . It can go semi or full auto it comes with a 50 round barrel clip. You can throw this rifle off a cliff go down to get it and it will be ready for combat even in water , snow ,mud it doesn't matter nothing can stop these guns.

    is no one going to mention that because an AK fires a 7.62x39 Russian it is considered a full-length cartridge? it may just be because I'm a Russian fanboy but an SKS, AKM/AK-47, or even an AK-15 would have been very nice rifles to put on the list. too many western rifles, not enough love for Asian or Slavic weapons.

    • Rattles


      2 ամիս առաջ

      @John I have noticed my woes. the 7.62x39 Russian is an intermediate cartrige. a better example of a Russian battle rifle would be Fedorov Avtomat, firing a 6.5 Arisaka or the SVT-40, firing a powerful 7.62x54mmR. and for Asian battle rifles, there is always the Type 4 rifle, firing the 7.7x58 Arisaka. There are a few rifles of Slavic and Asian production that could have med it onto the list.

    I got to fire an M-14 a few years ago at the NRA Range in Fairfax, VA and I was impressed. The recoil was not as severe as I expected .... though that was on semi. But in the field I can imagine the issues with the weight of it and the ammo being an issue for regular infantry. Still, I can see how it was use in some sniper applications as well as for the Squad Designated Marksman role. That 7.62 will carry out and deliver a punch
    The FAL - a buddy of mine got a Para model from DSA a while back.
    Gotta be honest ...... I was UNIMPRESSED.
    No doubt it is a tough and durable beast. But the stock sights on the Para model are atrocious in my opinion. I don't see how an regular infantryman/paratrooper could accurately engage targets at even 100 yards, much less on out to 200 or 300.
    Just my opinion

    According to Bloke on the Range, the "winter trigger" isn't actually a winter trigger at all, but a rifle grenade trigger, so that your finger isn't inside the trigger guard to get broken when the rifle recoils massively after firing a rifle grenade.

    I would have mentioned the M16 A4 instead of the Sig.
    I mean, i know those are very different cartridges, and Stg is very accurate but that’s the end.
    Stg has no field history, finish is very delicate, the system is generally not friendly with dust, it’s a bulky and heavy gun, bipod is too high cause the magazine is too long to lay flat on the ground fatiguing shooter over long prone sessions, ergonomics are far from great.
    So i would have gone with M16A4 over Sth imho
