Photo's from my local library. Let me know if you want other pictures of the FAL in action and book sources for your photo project.

Great photos. BTW, a friend of mine, a U.S.M.C. VietNam vet, maintains that he knew of several Marines who carried FAL's on ops because they were more powerful and reliable than the M16's they were issued.

Anyway, when I showed him my STG58, he immediately recognized it and knew how the controls (bolt hold-open, etc. worked). He's a lawyer, and not really a gun guy, so I guess he had some experiences with FAL's inthe past. Who Knows?
