In todays panicked buying market the FN FAL seems to have been overlooked and it doesnt seem to have increased in price hardly at all from its pre panic price.
Every once in a awhile one pops up on armslist for between 1000 and 1900, which ( I think) is only like 100 bucks more than prepanic. While AR's are (depending on brand) between 30-80 % more.
So unlike other guns not a bad time to buy a FAL.
I've seen a couple new ones ( license produced) on slickguns for like 1400 i think.
