A Heavily armed police officer secures a shopping centre in Manila on November 3, 2010. The Philippines boosted security on November 3 after Western governments warned that terrorist attacks could occur at any time in the capital and other parts of the country. The United States, Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand warned their citizens that public areas often visited by foreigners in Manila, such as shopping centres and airports, were potential targets.

Speaking of 20 rounders...That rifle and gear look brand new.

Look at magpul. I have a few of them around here somewhere. There are just a few plastic ones around but I'll bet good money those are stamped steel. For a gov agency to buy a few hundred of them there not gonna spend double on plastic (even though they are by far better)

the line runs vertical tho not horizontal ... if they are AR 10s i would bet they could be M14 mags

2nd set of photos with the rifle slung "righty" does look like a C-Prod 20.
The shot in the first post with the rifle slung "lefty" is not a C-Prod.
Looks plastic, but it's hard to tell.

Damn you're right, but I've seen those mags some where before.

a quick google search shows those style mags mainly pertain to 308 , 6.5 and 6.8 calibers as well

Oh I'm sure the second guy there just has old Colt 20 rounders. I'm more curious about the plastic mag in the first set of pics.

Looks like Bushmaster M4 patrolman's. I say they are Bushmasters because the carry-handles are commercial. Bushmaster does make a mil-spec handle now, but those look commercial to me. The stocks are 100% NOT Colt or LMT and look like BMs. They are not RRA stocks either since RRA marks both sides of their M4s so you would see the roll mark in the first pic. I see no happy holes so they are semi-autos. The fatty M4 handguards are strange though...didnt know M4 patrolmans carbines came with fattys.

Its also possible the first guy is carrying an Airsoft by the look of that magazine...LOL heck IDF boarded a ship with paintball guns...why can't beat cops carry Airsoft? Those things sting something awful LOL

yep, you nailed it.

I remember walking past checkpoints in Manila that had guys with similar load outs to these guys. I figured out right away if you just smile and wave at them when you pass by they dont even stop you. Same thing for getting your bags searched at the entrance to malls.

My father takes a more comical approach and salutes them (and they salute back) which also works.


little money, little training, little ammo.
LOTS and LOTS of CQB M4 rifles with 203 launchers EVERYWHERE though.
Its a status symbol.

Look at the first picture closely. It's hard to see but you can see the dimples indicative to Orlites alone. It also has the sole vertical ridge as seen on Orlites.

Orlite is still in business and does large government contracts, and as far as I know, ALL Orlites are government contract issued or over runs; both the ARs and Galils were for Israel. I'd wager that the Philippine government got a contract on 20 rounds through them and that's what they are.

^ I do believe you are correct.

30 round Orlite AR mags:

Just so everybody here doesn't think I have a sense of humor, you really got me with this one. I followed the link and even started seriously reading the specs. I couldn't figure out what 6mm BB was until I realized these were airsoft guns.
