    WTT: FN FAL (E-Cat)

    This rifle no longer brings me as much joy as it used to, so I'm looking to trade it for something else....

    Its an FN FAL made in Belguim in 1966 for either the Israeli Police or Nigerian Army (or so I'm told based on local knowledge). I emailed FN to ask them who they made it for but never heard back....

    Overall its in good condition. The bore is probably a solid Good - some wear but still usable. Shoots about normal for an FAL - about 2.5-4 MoA depending on ammo (loves Aussie F4, doesn't mind R1M1, and hates MEN).

    What would I want in trade? Anything else in the 7.62 NATO semi-auto field - preferably Sudanese, Guat or Portuguese AR10, or something from the AK or Rashid space perhaps? maybe even first gen semis - FN49 (not Egyptian), SVT40 or a selection of European Military Bolt Action Rifles - Finn Mosins, Swiss k11s, decent Mausers... Open to anything military really....

    Not really looking to sell, but may consider if nothing comes out of the woodwork or if its an offer I can't refuse.

    It would look very good next to your old L1A1, ... let me know if you think about departing with it.

    It's been a while since I've seen one of these sell, but I'd say around $1600ish perhaps?

    It only hates German MEN, so maybe it goes both ways? After all, Europeans are so much more liberated than we are....

    This is now up for solid sale - not looking at trades.

    Price is $1800 shipped.

    Includes rifle, three Israeli magazines, three Belgian aluminium Para magazines and a reproduction Rhodesian chest rig for those times when you want to dress up in your veldskoens, short shorts and play Troopie...

    If local, I'll throw in some ammo.

    Earliest time stamp PM or Post here gets it. P2P required etc etc....

    I'm just glad I don't have an E license so didn't have to scrounge some more cash for another rifle
