    In their own way, they seem to resemble the S. Korean Daewoo rifle family...although I doubt they are of any relation...

    It's a very reliable rifle with good punch (7.5mm swiss ammo). A little bit heavy, but okay. Not used anymore since 1990.

    And judging a rifle by it's looks is soooooo airsoft.

    I've never shot it or seen it in real life. And I rarely judge a weapon, aircraft, or vehicle by it's looks.

    Hit the nail on the head there - Starfox is soooooo airsoft. Maybe he'll grow up one day, but it ain't looking hopeful from where I'm standing.

    So why make such an asinine comment then? Come on little boy, start growing up a bit or do you want another vacation?

    As weapons go, this is built like a swiss watch and shoots like a dream.

    Thanks for the support. As I said, a very good rifle. Made out of high quality material, very accurate and reliable. The old 7.5mm swiss was a great calibre too.

    by the way: the Swiss Airforce is still using it. Or rather: some soldiers in the airforce still carry the 57, they're not shooting it anyway, or very very rarely.

    The freaking thing is just waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too heavy.

    There is a point of this thread, Its about a state-of-the-art assault rifle that is sadly quite rare and only used by a very few nations. It reminds me of the old German Solothurn MG30/MG34/FG42 weapons.

    I like it not only by its unusual looks but the fact it uses RLD-Blowback for its operation.

    I heard some are still used in Switzerland but only by specialists/so many servicemen.

    Shame it aint that popular.
