Sun´s out, guns out
The FN FAL, or Fusil Automatique Léger, is a fully-automatic or semi-automatic military rifle produced by the Belgian Fabrique Nationale. The FAL is chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO round (.308 Winchester), but due to its weight and the gas system which can be tuned up or down via a regulator in fore-end of the rifle it has a relatively light recoil.
FAL´s a legend: nicknamed the right arm of the free world, it served in almost every low intensity conflict you can imagine, including Vietnam, the Arab-Israeli Wars, and during the Falklands War –on both sides. Argentinian soldiers used the full-auto version while their British counterparts carried its British equivalent known as the L1A1 – and for me personally, this one is the one that got away.
Previously I had like one page of text prepared but then I saw this video, and there´s no way I´d have done this better than Mr. Noir. Enjoy.
As Mr. Noir said, shooting this rifle you´ll get the impression that you´re not shooting regular rounds but that you´ve got yourself the most badass laser gun there is. Mine is actually made in Brazil. IMBEL LAR is another license built FN FAL. They´re still in production, by the way.
