[DEV] Mk 12 SPR, L129 undersized (Mk12 fixed)
Acknowledged, LowPublic

Description

EDIT: The Mk12 has since been altered and now conforms to its correct dimensions. The original text has been preserved for documentative purposes
As of this edit, the L129 is still affected

The Mk12 SPR is significantly undersized to the point where it currently experiences constant and total magazine clipping. With its 18-inch barrel and a fixed stock, it should be only slightly shorter than an M16, yet it is noticeably shorter than it should be despite an identical stock contact point. Likewise, the L129 is undersized as well, to the point it looks more like a 5.56mm rifle. I should emphasize that I'm referring mainly to receiver and overallsize, not necessarily length. Length proportions seem to be roughly correct, but overall size in other dimensions not so much
