GUN PORN #8 : FN Herstal FAL
Cartridge: 7.62x51NATO (aka .308 Winchester)
Notes: Piston perfection. The FAL is one of the top 3 most recognizable rifles ever designed. While the M16 family and AK-47 family of rifles are no slouch in combat the FAL sits in a (very underrated) class of its own. Its gas piston design (like that of the AK) gives the rifle nigh-unparalelled reliability with excellent heat dispersion. The enclosed bolt (reminiscent of the M16) helps keep out dust and debris. The large .308 round is the same diameter bullet as the AK but the up-side is the increased powder load and ballistic stability giving the FAL an effective range that most modern carbines and automatic rifles just can’t match. Also taking from the .308 round is the heavy hitting knockdown power and light armor penetration that makes the FAL both feared and respected world-wide. Often called “the Right Arm of the Free World” the FAL was adopted into service by 90 countries and continues to serve with distinction and pride. Many FAL rifles are available to the US market in semi-auto configuration, to make them NFA compliant. A good company to look into for modernized FAL’s for purchase is DSA Inc. Fully automatic or select-fire versions are available but in short supply in the US (just remember to follow NFA guidelines if you go looking to buy). One of the most formidable and well known rifles in history the FAL stands tall.
