The L86A1 LSW ("Light Support Weapon") is a magazine-fed automatic weapon originally intended to provide fire support at a fireteam level. It has a longer barrel than the L85A1 rifle and a bipod, shoulder strap and rear pistol grip, together with a shorter handguard. The extended barrel provides an increased muzzle velocity and further stabilizes the bullet, giving a greater effective range. The weapon is otherwise identical to the L85 version on which it is based, and the same 30-round magazines and sighting systems are used. Like the L85 rifle, it has a rate-of-fire selector on the left side behind the magazine housing, enabling either single shots or automatic fire.
About this creation
Here is the L86A2 LSW made out of 2036 bricks including the bipod, vertical foregrip and the susat scope.The build is similar to my SA80 model but with a longer barrel shorter handguard.
The charging handle works the same.The images above the charging handle to the front and to the rear.
The bipod can be deployed similarly to the BAR including the design.
The susat scope shares some traits to Cole Edmonson's design especially the reticle which uses two mini atennas.
