5.56 NATO calibre assault rifle used by the Bermuda Regiment. Previously used in the 1980s/1990's by the New South Wales Department of Corrective Services. The Surrey Constabulary Firearms Support Team (now known as the Tactical Firearms Unit) was armed with Mini-14s in the 1980s modified with Choate stocks. A few examples were seen on the news used by Police during the Hungerford Massacre. The Mini-14 was also used by the Royal Ulster Constabulary.
