Red Scorpion

While usually it's good to correct pages. The Red Scorpion page is undergoing revision and Improvement. Having someone come in at random and make alot of changes really does mess with the revisions and improvements. Please discuss changes on the talk page first when a page is being worked on by others.

OK, sorry, I wasn't aware. I'll leave it alone from now on.--Leigh Burne 02:38, 1 May 2012 (CDT)

Batman Series

Hey man. Good call on the Batman Series Template! Thanks!! --Zackmann08 09:41, 6 June 2012 (CDT)

No problem, thanks for the feedback. --Leigh Burne 09:45, 6 June 2012 (CDT)
You bet. One thing though, just so you know. When you respond to a post that someone has made on your discussion page, you should post on that persons discussion page, otherwise they may not get the message. If you click on my "signature" it will take you to my page, then go to discussion and click on "add topic". Make the subject line something relevant (in this case "Batman Series" would be a good one). Then make your post. :-) I know you're new so no worries! --Zackmann08 10:21, 6 June 2012 (CDT)

Numbering System

The reason why the Alien movies are categorized "Alien 1-4" is to make sure when they are organized in numerical order in the "Category:Movie" section. Please do not change this. --Ben41 (talk) 13:44, 9 April 2013 (EDT)

My mistake, sorry.--HuDaFuK (talk) 14:06, 9 April 2013 (EDT)
Also not sure why my response came through on my old account!--Leigh Burne (talk) 03:42, 10 April 2013 (EDT)

Batman Returns behind the scenes clips

Try finding shots of firearms used in behind the scenes clips of Batman Returns. The second you get one in your sights, post it to IMFDB.--Gunnerboy (talk) 14:16, 8 June 2013 (EDT)

Shortest G3

About the edit you made to the New Police Story page, are you talking about the MC51K as being the shortest variant of the G3? If so, that was not made by H&K, but by the British firm "FR Ordnance" (they also made the original MC51 which was copied by other companies as the HK51, along with a suppressed variant). In fact none of these short G3s were made by H&K, they are all after market modifications or made by other companies, like Volmer or Flemming. I have no problem with you deleting that comment though, as it was unnecessary along with wrongly suggesting that the HK51 was a production variant of the G3. --commando552 (talk) 08:48, 12 August 2013 (EDT)

No, not the MC51, I'm fairly certain there was an even shorter variant made by H&K specifically for the SAS, during the brief time the company was British-owned. They only ever manufactured a handful of them, and I'm not sure it was ever marketed elsewhere. But if you know otherwise I'm happy to be corrected.--Leigh Burne (talk) 10:43, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
I've never heard of any special version that H&K made for the UK special forces. The only special version of the G3 I'm aware of that was made for the SAS was the MC51 guns be FR Ordnance (who contracted the gunsmith Bill Fleming to do the job), including the MC51K. Below is a picture of a Fleming HK51K (an American made gun that is the same spec as the original MC51K):
Flemming HK51K - 7.62x51mm
I think this is pretty much as short as a G3 can get and still have any real utility. You could do a custom job to shorten the barrel even more (I have seen photos of a G3 cut down so short the tip of the bullet was poking out of the muzzle), but at that point it would be a total waste. --commando552 (talk) 11:31, 12 August 2013 (EDT)
