Courtesy of Dave at Maple Leaf Tactical, and by extension the chap who gave it to him, we have the first public photo of the 16in (technically 15.7in) L119A2 upper – this one apparently normally resides in Poole.
I have seen a picture of a long A2 upper before, and while this new image also has a ACOG and 216A flash hider, the rest of the setup is rather different and more stripped back.
It is interesting to note the lack of simon sleeve and use of a bipod, which hasn’t, to my knowledge, been seen outside the pamphlets on the A1 variant.
Is there any news or information available on which attachments are typically used on the L119A2 Carbine (long version of the L119A2)? I realise this will vary according to the operation but any info would be greatly appreciated.
ACOG TA01ECOS is a safe bet – otherwise AFG/grip of choice and an LA-5. There aren’t many pictures about though.
