Hi folks,

Something nice walked into my room. This will be my 6th original Dutch Army FAL. More pix soon. I'll make a technical review as i did for many other FAL's.

it's the first FALO i see with a crest on. All my other observations are FALO without the Lion crest but most have a "BW" stamp. BW= arsenal inspection stamp. Bewapenings Werkplaats.

It is also the first inventory chip is see outside a military base. They scan the guns if they are tured in the inventory.

So, yep, i'm happy

Dearest Paco

I'm not certain if I hate you with unconcealed jealousy or if I love you and want you to adopt me or become your best friend.

Either way, I am always impressed with your collection and I truly appreciate you sharing it with us.

Thank you :bow:

It is realy weird to see people visiting my place from so far.

It is very interesting watch every post you do Paco.
Like a short visit to a firearm museum (which I never got tired to visit them, my wife words.) I am planing to go Europe again next year and then see the first game of Argentina at Russia World Cup with my family.
Please, I would like to see whatever you think is appropriated, if you allow me. Send any requirement is needed.

Thanks in advance.
