During a truly crap day at work I got the chance to eyeball a local fun shop. They had a whole lotta bolt guns in, but not that many gas guns in the place. Lucky me :)

I've been wanting a Spanish FR-8 for many a year now, & here this one was. Leaning against the wall in all its goodness. A handy find, since I've got a full crate of that light weight 7.62x51 cetme ammo my l1a1 doesn't like.

Right there next to that was a nice isphapore 2a1 Enfield. Still packed with cosmoline.

Traded a golani for them both. I've become quit a sucker for milsurp bolt guns.

But yeah nice stuff

Now just to find that Aussie Enfield made in x39 that took ak mags...

I really didn't care for the golani as much as I thought I would. Course I said the same thing about the ak-74 as well. Guess I'm just stuck on the original.

Problem was the Aussie was made in Vietnam for an Aussie Company - so they had to quit importing them to the US :rolleyes:

Really like the Ishy A1. Mine has feeding and extraction problems. Other than that its my second favorite bolt gun. The 91/30 takes top honors.
