the unit is totally legal and chapter approved rules (can be found in chapter approved 2004 or in a certain WD) are not a matter of choice, that is to say if you have the printout/book your opponent doesn't have the power to let you take them or not like with some special characters for example. i can his argument if you haven't seen the rules yourself although he should have enough sportsmanship o beleive you! but anyway to solve this problem just show him in your chapter approved/borrow one and photocopy the page etc. so he knows the rules and has absolutly no excuse to try and stop you using them!

Don't quote me on this, but I'm thinking WD issue no. 294 or 95. Yeah, they're legal and shouldn't be a problem with your opponent.

They're also in Annual 04 along with a buch of other stuff that's still useful even under v4 (armored collumn, tyranid seeding swarms, etc.)

The rules (encoded) are as follows:
*HVY bolter range
*Assault cannon damage
*space marine armor vallued AP (so good for smokin' these dudes)
*costs +10 for the rail on up to 3 Pathfinders in the unit
*pay +7pts more and they can have an experimental hardwired target lock so the Pathfinders that have them can shoot at separate targets to the other members of the unit
*cause Pinning

its also a heavy weapon, and if you use the target lock, it follows the "get hot" special rules, just like plasma weapons.

Q. What are the rules of the Pathfinder's rail rifle? I can't find them in the codex..
A.
The rules can be found in Chapter Approved 2004, and in White Dwarf issue#284 Page 92 (If your in Australia).
The FAQ is there for a reason
