They are heavy but function very well. Like the M-14 they are very durable, reliable and accurate. The British used them very effectively in the Falklands War. The FAL would be a great rifle and fun to shoot.
My opinion heavy and its length makes it a bit clumsy its got the same strengths and flaws as the m1a. I think its the british version of the m1a.
