British L1A1
 
I picked one up at a gun show. Anyone know anything about this gun?

Look like an FN FAL, probably produced under contract by the british gov and given the designation. If I remember they were used by both sides in the Falklands war the british where armed with the semi auto L1A1 and the Argentinians were armed with the full auto/ semi auto FALs. Other then that I'm sure someone else will come along with more info.

Had an L1A1, nice rifles it's basically an FN FAL built on what is called the inch pattern as opposed to the metric pattern that most other FAL's are built on.

also uses a slightly different magazine, you can use metric but it's a bit sloppy
