Does Brazil or India still make them?

Imbel has what they call ParaFAL on their website.

Probably if you order enough, they'll make them or put them together from what they have on hand.

Indian Ordnance Factories still listed the 1A1 as available, with those funky Indian resin handguards. My guess would be they are working on using up old parts for sale to domestic agencies, and probably have enough for quite a few rifles:

Doesnt Nigeria or some other African country still make the FAL or did they just assemble rifles from FN parts?

Actually, the Nigerian FAL line is an offshoot of their Aircraft manufacturing consortium.

And now they're using their commercial aviation experience to extend into general aviation design,......

I wonder if they need pilots.....and possibly a mechanic....I know some good ones :p

All I could find.
"Currently, Brazilian Army and Marine Corps Groups still use the FAL as their main rifle, as many troops are not yet issued the IA2."
