Gentleman I just would like to thank you all for your input into my choice of a new semi-automatic rifle. As you may be aware I have reached my limit for military calibre rifles here. I have managed to locate a refurbished L1A1 (FNFAL) over here. Takes me back I can tell you, however factory ammunition in France is 900 euros a 1000 rounds, so I will have to try and hunt down some military surplus..............:D

Good to hear you found what you could use! The CETME would have been good as well, but if this one replaces what the UK destroyed on ya, I'm glad! Good luck, Good shooting and Let us know about a Range report and oh Yea, we want Pics?

Thanks Ron I will, but there is likely to be a three month waiting period for the Prefecture to authorise the paperwork (a pain, how I miss the States!).

I got it through some ex-Royal Marine guys who run a range near me. They are registered to professional train guys going into theatre on convoy duties. They had a serious contact for these L1A1's factory refurbished as new. It take me back a few years and I might see if I can snaggle a Suit sight......:D
