Fn fal rifle field strip. Hah, just saw your reply. Which lasted in service soooo long and adopted by sooo many of our allies, sarcasm by the way. Maybe 2. That way, you had a better chance if your position was attacked, because you could operate the weapon manually. Things worked out though…Thank God. Not that FN where especially fussy about licensing other countries to make them. You sound like just another AR fanatic who demonizes all other rifles other than your AR The M14 served its role well in Iraq and Afghanistan. But, that action leaves a lot to be desired in the civvy ammo world.
