I'v e owned a NM M1a. I've never owned a FAL, but I've handled and fired a dozen of them or more.

I would agree that a match grade M1A is a better target rifle. But a battle rifle??? not so much!

Lol, ok! It's all in what you like, that's why we all have opinions!

As mutch as every one is going back and forth about the FAL and M1A and as mutch as I am a FAL lover. We still need to pay our respects to the Hk g3 and ptr91.

Yep. I actually like the old Galil even better.

Too bad even Bill Gates can't afford to buy one anymore.
