Of course I am partial also to the Springfield M-1 A. And the original FN-LAR. But DSA Arms of the Chicago area makes some darn good FN Type Rifles. There are the Rock River LAR-8 which is a high quality rifle with great accuracy and I even have a CETME with all H&K Hardware on it that shoots like a champ and I think I paid about $400 for it. Just depends on the budget and what you like.
I understand the value that is put on the H&K 91 or the Original FN-LAR NM today.

Default Automatisches Gewehr G3

I agree on the whole MBR parameters. Now that I am retired I no longer have to carry one for XX many miles I am a protagonist of 7.62. When I was a private and carried the m60, I loved passing off my pig for the M16 which just floated in my arms.

But really folks, when your target is hopped up on adrenaline they may not even notice the little bullet for as long as it takes to shoot you.

So my choice for zombie gun, was the HK91. Mine was built from a G3 parts kit from England. Guy in Ohio named Charlie Jones (pegasus ordnance) built it.

Study the roller-lock mechanism, which the Germans called "Half-lock" and you may see why they were so popular to equip untrained armies. This mechanism can be seen in the MG42 which burns 1100 rds/min. So yes, reliability and durability.

OK, the FAL is ok but I love my HK.

Survivalist,

Just for ideas!
I have some good battle rifles as you advised.
As the guys stated several years ago I bought a CETME just to see because it was not expensive. I think I gave around $395.00 for it. Put all HK Hardware of it now and shoots like a dream. I have an HK to but I was impressed. The other thoughts were the DSA FN Rifles they build and of course also one of my favorite is the Rock River Arms Inc. 16" LAR-8. It is also very accurate at around 1 MOA at 100.

Default HK all the way

Just came back from the range where I broke in the new barrel and dialed in the iron sights. My HK91 built from a G3 parts kit, is a dream. I have not shot once since I was in Kenya training the Para Regiment. Of course this one is built to much tighter tolerances. I got a couple of groups in one inch at 100m and I hope to improve my groups as I get used to the weapon.

Had mine built by the gunsmith at Pegasus Ordnance.
