I think the M27 IAR article should be merged with the M27 article, the M27 and the M27 IAR are the same thing except for the mag. EDIT: Haters, Haters everywhere
Keep — Per G36C and MG36. In real life they are the same weapon, but in game they have different traits, and as such fall under the "If a weapon is named the same, looks the same, but functions in a drastically different way, split." clause.

Merge — That example with G36 and the CARBINE variant is flawed because, duh, Carbine =/= AR. But the M27 and IAR are the same things. The IAR does not exist in H&K w/out the IAR part of its name. Also, the Blops2 M27 is not a carbine. <76trombones2 (talk) 23:01, September 14, 2013 (UTC)>
- That was the Carbine/Assault rifle version and the Light Machine Gun version. Also, Sam's quoting of one of our split policies make it very clear why this merge won't happen.

- The example I used was the Assault Rifle and LMG variants of the CoD guns. You're dictating your argument on real life information and not in game information. 23:37, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
There IS no AR or LMG version. Only an Infantry Automatic Rifle exists, which is technically neither. You people can be ignorant of that as much as you want, but trust me, i have personally fired the IAR and it has little to no recoil. I fired it with both its standard 30-round mag and the Armatac SAW-MAG 150 round drum magazine. It's still the same gun, no matter what the magazine looks like/holds.
- You're still using real world information. In-game the M27 is classified as an assault rifle, the M27 IAR is classified as an LMG. 23:39, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
- Also, please do not call us ignorant, when you have been told multiple times why we do not allow real world information. If you continue to act in a rude manner with only real world information I will close this AfD for being invalid. 23:40, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
- Again, per what Sam said. All of what you're saying is basically COD:IRL. Also, in Black Ops II the M27 (according the IMFDB) is actually an M416. The AR version that the M27 IAR is based on. 23:40, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
- To be more exact the M27 IAR is a variant of the HK 416, which the game files refer to the weapon as. It can be assumed the weapon was given a stock name due to copyright issues. 23:42, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
- "the game files refer to the weapon as". I didn't use real life, I used information from the game files. 23:43, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Look @ this is you still think a non Infantry Automatic Variant version exists. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M27_Infantry_Automatic_Rifle
- You're using a real world article to support your case. You cannot use Real world information to dictate your argument. 23:35, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
And clearly no one in this wiki realizes that M27 and M27 IAR are the same except for mag, name, and Slightly Improved graphics.
- If you keep up this poor behaviour not only will I mark this AfD invalid but you will get a block for poor behaviour. 23:43, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Poor behavior = Not being a basement dweller? Eesh, Battlefield wiki is much better than this BS wiki.
- Closed - Invalid. 23:47, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
