The BIS sound may suit you better, but others might prefer the original.

In this case it's a little hard because the mod does not come with a separate config pbo which means I can't properly override it.
Alright. Thanks for the answer.

I love these configs, thanks for making them.
Is there a way with the PUKF config you could replace the BIS L85's with EOtechs with PUKF L85's with SUSAT's or Acogs, because I have never seen EOtechs in british army service at least on L85's and as it stands, on the current L85A2's, there is no picatinny rail to mount them where BIS has them, it is a raised rail like in the PUKF models.
Ah, the Eotechs, I hate those too
But the weapon replacement config is only a minor side thing here, main scope is the actual weapon config. There was no obvious 1:1 replacement for them, that's why they were not replaced.
Not sure what's the best way to go about it, in the meantime created
Not bad work on the ACE configs at all bud.
I tried to get as many ACE features in the original weapons as possible without having an ACE dependance but it's good to have a few of the things I missed like support for ACE magazines, and some of the new features they've added since last year - like integrated IR/Light switching without the need for the scripts Norrin gave us for our pack.
I'm not all that keen that you've used the sight pictures that came with the BAF versions of the weapons though, as they were never very realistic: Tritium illumination in the SUSAT is red not green, and the ACOG reticle used by British forces is the crosshair-type not the chevron - but I suppose that's something that has to be done for the sake of having animated reticles in ACE (which are a great feature they've added to this game). I tried to get BIS to change that before BAF was released, but to no avail.
Would be nice if the ACE team had some tutorials for making custom animated sights so we could sort out some more realistic ones.

I would've used your SUSAT but the model for it is in the config pbo and I did not want to copy content from there into my pbo.
If it's OK with you, I will do it, or even better, with your permission, we'll use your SUSAT in ACE.
I didn't make the optics that were in the released weapons pack so it's not really up to me to permit you to use the texture. AFAIK Chris is pretty busy outside of the ArmA community too, so I may face some difficulty in asking him for you.

I'll send you a PM to download it or something.
I've uploaded config sources at dev-heaven if anyone interested. But they might not be very readable as I'm making heavy use of ACE macros.
Did you ever find the mod that was causing this problem? I got the same problem and maybe you already figured it out.
