Question of the Week
It’s time for the Question of the Week! This week we want to know, what underappreciated gun do you swear by and why?
Here's what some of your fellow Combat Arms soldiers said:
"The M6A2-SRT because it's just as great as the m416 cqb, but you can attach any scope you want, and has a larger clip. - Aaron Kohn
"the g18, the pistol that leaves the enemy asking what the hell just happened to me... - Paul G.
"M4A1, It has low recoil all around, Despite using the silencer it makes it have MORE recoil than it does without one, Unless it is an S2 or S3, Used wtih the itech scope, It would be very lethal and dangerous to all. - Martin T.
