    Very nice! Back in the 80's when I was with the Signal Corps - we used to fire the FN
    C1A1 (before these were replaced with the M16A2 we call the C7).
    These were heavy duty rifles that could sure pack a punch!

    You've got some great examples there! Thanks for showing!

    My wife Lez was attached to the Royal Army Ordnance Corps and after the Falklands War in the 1980's one of her jobs was to sort through captured Argentine FAL's. She then took part in the armed convoys to the steel works to have these melted down.

    Cheers, Ade.
