Show us your FAL/L1A1 and HiPower combo!

I'll start out with my Aussie receiver/barrel playing dressup as a well worn Brit..

I'm confused. You sold ONE HP, so you can't post a photo?

That would infer...no it's not possible...that you had but one HP?

I know the Brits issued the L1A1 and the Hi power, what other countries used that combo?

That's right, I had A GP35, and I sold it off many moons ago... what's worse is the fact it was a rare SAS modified one.... stupid Youth

I think you were the guy to convince me of getting an Argy HP if I remember right? I got an older import first, then got the detective which is a badass pistol I must say

Argentina's FAL and Hi-Power copies were licensed, at least until the 1980s or 1990s.

The Hi-Power in my picture is Argentine (originally for a Chilean contract, as it has the defaced property mark "Carabineros de Chile") and it says on the slide "Licencia FN-Browning."

As for countries, Rhodesia certainly used the Hi Power combined with both the SLR and FAL and Zimbabwe after Rhodesia's fall. I believe South Africa did as well, as did Belgium and Congo-Leopoldville. I know other countries used the combination as well.

Sorry bad grammar, I knew the Argies were licensed, but the Izzys is what I meant.

My Century L1A1 on a type 3 metric receiver (made in Canada) with metric non-bipod cut handguards. I have the original inch wood handguards still, I just prefer these when shooting. Along with my Argy Hi-Power. Neither one is pretty or 'original' but they are both fine shooters.

Aussie SLR "Bitch" clone with Argy Hi-Power w/Canadian holster.

The FAL is built on an Imbel "Made In Canada" receiver with Inch parts from many nations, and with the pistol/holster combo, this is definitely a multi-nation display!
