My FAL is finally home.
I believe it's an original Belgian FN made FAL.
Even has matching serial numbers on bolt and bolt carrier.
Weird thing is that it's stamped "FAL cal .308" but it's a metric FAL.
Plans are to gunkote it, fit my Leupold VX-iii 1.5-5x20 scope, new charging/bolt handle but I'm thinking of keeping the furniture as is though. And maybe get rid of the carry handle. I would LOVE some 30rd mags but no-one what's to export or send me some to South Africa and here they are as scares as hen's teeth.
What do you guys think?

Is she full auto capable? It looks like a type II upper on a type II or 1.5 lower. R marked selector....
1.5-5 is a very good choice with the fal. If you want to lose the carry handle see if you can get a filler from slocat.
Love that buttstock I swear I can see a face or skull on it. Send more pics when you are done. Get the other siode and more close-ups!

Only now that you mentioned it can I see the skull. hahaha. Didn't notice it before.

I don't know about the full auto yet. It's rainy so will only go to the range tomorrow, but I see the pin was removed from the selector.

I can bring you a 30 round mag the end of the year in person, but they go for about $60. And I only have 2 of them. Or did go for $60, before the hype going on here. Might have some 100 or so regular mags as well to bring if they ban them here! Waar bly jy?
