    Does that extra weight help steady the weapon when firing?
    Is recoil a big issue with a heavy-ass gun?

    I fired my uncles AK once when i was 10 y.o. Knocked me on my ass. M-16 was fine though.

    The gun fires nice and smooth, especially with my reloads.

    Nothing hurts the reliability of any firearm worse than a bad mag - they are responsible for 90% of weapon jams with the almost all the rest going to misfeeds. High-cap mags are a bad bet, as is a full loaded magazine. It is best to use a 30 round mag with 28 rounds loaded. Be nice to your mags.

    Also, How are you supposed to prone out with a 100 round monster mag protruding from the magazine well? You can't. Even a 30 round mag on an M-4 makes it very difficult, especially if you're a little guy (like me.) It's worse with bullpup weapons like the Steyr AUG - you can't drop and return fire, the best you can do is take a knee, or prone out and return fire gangster syle.

    How is the Steyr AUG, I heard the Aussies had a lot of teething problems with theirs. Note: I have never handled this weapon.

    That's one of the reasons why I think the FN P-90 is going to be hugely successful. 50 rd magazine that runs the length of the weapon with a clear case so you can see how much ammo you have, and it doesn't get in the way of anything.
