Here you'll find a directory of my preferred firearms.
By: CBI Elite

   Some people fancy computers, others adore building models...well I like both. Only difference is that I also have a deep facination in the production, creation, usage, and management of firearms of all sorts. Below is a list of my personal favorite firearms ranging from sniper rifles to pistols and their specs. All factors were taken into consideration when I chose these including durability, weight, ammunition (projectile) size, weight, clip size, range, temperature, sites, and of course power. I've tried my best to define the acronyms used in the weapons' names (e.g. LDA means Light Double Action).

   My favs are categorized into 5 sections: Sniper Rifles, Rifles, SMGs, Machine Guns, and Pistols. Next to the name of the weapon, you can select a link to view it's picture. Keep in mind that:

1 yard (yd) = 3 feet
1 meter (m) = 3.28 feet
16 ounces (oz) = 1 pound (lb)

USEFUL TERMS (Top)
Acronym/TermDefinitionAdditional Information
AmmunitionProjectiles fired using weaponsThere is a broad library of bullet sizes, each one with its advantages. A 9mm clip can hold more 9mm bullets than .45 because they are smaller. However, .45 bullets are larger and as a result, result in more damage but means less bullets can be placed into a clip.
CQBClose Quarter BattleAn occurence where a hostile enemy is located very near or directly infront of you. You'd use a sniper rifle for long range so you'd use a pistol or rifle for close combat.
FNFabrique NationaleA manufacturing company that creates many weapons, including the M249SAW LMG used in many militaries around the world, including the USA and the P90 known for it's high fire rate.
GemtechSuppressor manufacturersWell known for their AR-15 suppressors, Gemtech has a wide variety of silencers for many weapons such as the FNP90 and the Diemaco SFW.
HMGHeavy Machine GunsWeapons that are usually large in size and weight. They usually require belt fed (chain linked) bullet links that are fed from a 50 or 100 round container. These weapons are known to remain in one position when firing, due to either their recoil or heavy weight.
KACKnight's Armament CompanyA company that manufactures rails for guns.
LMGLight Machine GunsWeapons that, unlike HMGs, are more versatile, lighter and can be moved around easier and in most cases, fired by hand without the use of a tripod or bipod.
NVDNight Vision DeviceUsed mostly on HMGs, LMGs, Rifles, and some SMGs to help aid the operator in seeing in the dark. One drawback however is that the device is sensitive to light and fragile.
RailsInstalled on weapons Rails are installed on a weapon's body which then allow it to house a variety of accessories such as flashlights, lasers, scopes, NVDs, etc.
RASRail Adapter SystemRails on which any optics and accesories can be mounted on.
ScopeMagnification deviceThere are a wide variety of scopes that can be mounted on rifles of all sorts, most SMGs, and some pistols. The purpose of a scope is to provide the operator with a certain level of magnification and accurate targetting so that he or she can use the weapon to a greater extent. All sniper rifles have scopes, for the obvious reason that most targets would be located far away. On a scope, there is a dile that allows the user to adjust the magnification settings with the distance the target is from the rifle.
SMGSmall Machine GunsSemi or Full automatic weapons that are usually small in size.
SOCOMSpecial Operations CommandAs the name implies, this is a section of the military that is very discreet with it's operations, most of which never reach the public.
SuppressorUsed to silence weaponsSuppressors, AKA silencers, are used only on weapons that have barrels that are customized to accept them. Used to muffle the sound of gun shots and usually hide the flash the gun creates. They're known to cause innacuracy in bullet trajectories, however newer models have been designed to actually increase accuracy (e.g. Gemtech).
