"It may look ferocious, but recoil from the .50-caliber Barrett M107A1 is controllable with proper body position. Getting used to the muzzle blast takes a bit of practice, however." - SIStaff

Kicks about the same as a 12ga.

A British soldier surrounded by abandoned Argentinian helmets after the battle of Goose Green, May 1982

I’m pretty sure it’s against the Geneva Convention to take helmets and other protective equipment away from POWs.

Been trying to figure out what rail system that is for like a full 2 days lol

I think it’s a KAC

It looks like a generational variant of the Centurion CMR. It has less aggressive cuts for the top row than the current model, but it has the same lockup mechanism and hole spacing.

The URX series is identifiable by hole cut spacing. Two with a thin gap, a wider gap, then another two with a thin gap between them and a repeating pattern. While the original Knight’s M4 RAS has even spacing, the later versions and rifle length do not, and no Knight’s rail has that mounting mechanism either.
