With the exceptions of the "G/GL series", which is your favorite FN FAL and why?

1. 50.00
2. 50.41
3. 50.42
4. 50.63
5. 50.64

For me, I would say the 50.42 as I love LMG's and looks closest to military.

For some reason the Israeli heavy barrels get me going...

Unfortunately, I can't afford one, so my favorite is my well running Century... hey, at least it is mine!

I like the G1 my self. Of course I had the first kits in the country and still have not built them up.

Oh the good days of $99 south africa kits. My best G1 kit was one of the like new refinished kits from DSA.

Thanks guys! I'm pretty happy with the FAL collection so far. I have 8 more kits and receivers yet to build, just no time right now. The next build party is 3 Para's, 2 Izzy LB's, and some assorted carbines. Glad I got the kits while I could still aford them!!

Fal

I would have to say the G series that was imported between 1959-1963 I have sevral Fal rifles and this one just shoots like no other.

L1A1, The commonwealth countries seemed to have thought out the design a little more.

Dave that's a great bunch of rifles there.
My favorite would have to be the 50.63. It is a little of the best of everything. I don't have it any longer but I loved it when I did. I looked high and low for that rifle back in the early eighties. I paid $900.00 for it then and would gladly pay almost double for it now if I could find one.
Damn I miss that one.

Growing up in the early 80's and seeing pics and the news from Rhodesia and the Falklands, I fell in love with the R1 and the L1A1.

Although, there aren't any FAL's in military configuration that I don't like.

And some L1A1's....

Aussies in Vietnam...



Falklands....

Thanks powermad! Just had this one built since I don't have much time to build FAL's right now. I haven't even got this one home yet.
