To make it more confusing, an AW doesnt HAVE to be a super magnum to be chambered for those cartridges and a super magnum can be obtain in non magnum cartridges. its a marketing thing. The easiest way to cross identify an AW and a AWM/AWSM is to look at the muzzle brake.

first off, yes, it is an british manufacturer. misread the jane's guide.
and yes, as my guide is about 15 years old, and i did some reading afterwards, and you're right, it is the updated version of the L96 i was describing... just didn't feel like updating the post/forgot about it. apparantly, they only made 3-4 rifles in 1992, and it was a little more set in stone about design then.

Check these out. These are stocks to make the AR-15 California-legal. Basically, California still has a state assault-weapon ban based on brand names and features. The "conspicuously protruding pistol grip" is one of the evil features, so they've figured out a new stock to relocate it low enough so you don't need a pistol grip. Have you ever seen anything so ridiculous?
But a lot of the previous solutions were even dumber, including ways to make AR-15 rifles into single-shot actions.
