I was very fortunate to have an opportunity to visit the Lithgow Museum. I was overwhelmed by the staff as they were very generous with their time and knowledge. I was invited into their "behind the locked" door area where they proudly set out for review several unique examples of the results of the local defense industry.

The staff of the museum are volunteers and I am a rank amateur as to photography and I know more now than I used too about the several versions of the FAL.

This photo is a working test sample of a single shot target rifle. Enjoy. More pictures added.

Cool, now I know what the rifle on pg. 75 of "SLR Australia's F.N. F.A.L." looks like in color.

Myself and Abominog were out there just a few weeks ago... You have to be careful in Lithgow, if you stand outside and listen carefully you can here the sound of dueling banjos echoing in the hills around you..!!!
