Royal Netherlands Army’s Nifty C7/C8 Rifles

    Royal Netherlands Army have given their Colt Canada C7 rifles and C8 carbines a few tacti-cool upgrades.

    The upgrades include a nifty tan-colored bolted on rifle-length rail extension, tan-colored CAA Tactical buttstock, oversized magazine release, ambidextrous safety selector switch, freefloated lightweight profile barrels and Aimpoint scopes. They get bonus points for a two-tone color scheme over the boring all-black color scheme used by all the other AR-15 military users worldwide.
