FN FAL - Fusil Automatique Léger

I dont know a great deal about them but i know they were developed in Belgium, they are .308. Some are semi-auto but there is also a full-auto version. They were used by both sides in the Balkans war, one side used sa and the other side used fa.

FAL, you either love 'em or hate'em. To get a nice older one will cost you a couple hundred more. The newer ones will end up costing you more by the time you get it set up right. Old ammo will fead fine, accurate, plus having the stoping power of the .308 is a big plus over the 5.56, x39 rounds.
IMHO everyone should have an AK, AR, & FAL.

If you can't find good shape PB's or can't do it yourself I recommend these guys. I have used them in the past and they have a little better than most product.

The FAL was one of the very best of the old time battle rifles. A favorite of mercenaries in the sixties and seventies.

IMHO, far superior to the M-14 in almost every respect. It was at one time standard issue in Great Britain, Israel, and quite a few other free world countries.

You mean the Falklands war...

The Balkan wars were in the very early 1900's...
