  5. FN FAL
    Two interesting designs. I took some time to make a few pics to compare them. I'm so amased on that FG42 how small it is to fire a full power 8mm mauser. Dang, clever system. In semi the bolt stay closed. In full, it works with open bolt to give extra cooling. The scope (original L stamped...
