Good looking rifle there.
With over one million produced and paid in advance orders for up to 2 million more, this is the most popular Special Forces and Paratroops rifle in all of NATO Europe. It is also found in many Asian countries as well. This weapon was replaced by the more modern FN FNC and is the design model for the FN FNC. It is very lightweight. It is chamber for the NATO Standard 5.56mm x 45mm round, and a 7.62mm x 51mm NATO standard round version is under development. It is accurate at intermediate ranges of under 600 meters with an incredible .15 MOA at 300 meters under optimum conditions, with good scope and an expert marksman. It is durable, rugged and reliable. It has or is currently in service or planned for future service with the Paratroop Special Forces of: the UK, Israel, the Philippines, Cambodia, the Netherlands, Serbia, Croatia, Viet Nam, Zimbabwe, Canada, Belgium, Egypt, South Africa, Turkey, Thailand and nearly 50 other countries around the world. Even though it is an older design, this weapon today remains the bread and butter mass sales rifle for FN Herstal. It is manufactured under strict Royalty License in over 2 dozen countries including FN Herstal US.
It's accuracy and simple, rugged design make this one of the top ten Special Forces rifles in all the world.
Special thanks to my little brother Ryu kun for his assistance with grammar and spelling, sentence structure and word choice.

Hai Hai, it is chamber for NATO 5.56mm round.
FAL's are .308 (7.62x51)... even the manual says 7.62. Those are 5.56 mags above it though. Why did I even post this?
thats a very nice lookin rifle. I need one
sweet rifle needs to be ion my safe.............for safe keeping.
It is a very cool looking rifle with the bead blasted look on some of the parts. Not only that, but it comes from a company with a distinguished career of making excellent weapons.
wow really wouldnt mind getting me one of thoughs. looks amazing but the 5.56 is kinda small, much rather have it chamber the 7.62
