          The right arm of the free world, the FAL is one of the best battle rifle designs of all time.

            Most of the FALs out there were assembled from parts kits. Century Intl. has assembled a large number using both metric and inch pattern kits. The metric FALs were assembled using Austrian kits and the inch pattern using Australian kits. Century used several different brands of receivers. The best receivers they used were Imbel receivers. Imbel receivers are forged in Brazil and are top quality. Century assemblied guns vary from poor to very nice.

            As there was a large number of kits on the open market at one time, a lot of FALs were home built. Kits came from India, Israel, Brazil, Argentina, Austria, Australia and other countries

            In the early 1960s for a very short time Browning imported new FN FALs from Belgium. Steyr imported new FN FALs from Belgium again in the 1980s. The Browning and Steyr imported FALs are the most sought after and expensive FALs. Springfield Armory Inc. imported new Imbel FALs from Brazil in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Armscorp assembled FALs from Israeli parts. DSA purchased parts and blueprints from Steyr in Austria and now make new made FALs.

              FALs are banned by name in New Jersey, the Styer ".308 Sporter" given as an example. If it doesn't say "FAL" and doesn't have a flash hider, bayonet stud or folding stock it may be OK. Maximum of 15 round capacity magazine.

                Banned in CA too, I'm sick of these commie states. We need to ban liberals, they've done 1,000,000x more damage to this great nation than all of the criminal mass shootings combined.

                These states are lost forever, the only solution is for us to move and concentrate into the handful of free states that are remaining, and not let this happen there.
