FN FAL

description
Belgium's greatest armament manufacturer is undisputably Fabrique Nationale. In 1954, they released the FN FAL, which soon became one of the most iconic battle rifles of all time. Since then, over two million have been manufactured and distributed worldwide. It was rejected by American armies after extensive research, and the M14 rifle was chosen instead. Nonetheless, the FN FAL took off in other areas of the world, gaining popularity in over 70 countries. Since then, it has fallen out of favour in comparison to other weapons, and is only still produced in Brazil. The gas-operated system allows for a high-velocity shot, projecting a .308 cartridge up to 600 metres. It was the rifle of choice for the Irish Defence Forces for nearly 30 years, and also saw use in the Irish Troubles. Get yourself a .308 by clicking the link!
