There is a forum member here named parsons, he was on the same deployment in Afghanistan with me. As for the AR-10 platform why don't you google and research the SR-25 performance in Afghanistan.how much truth does that hold anyone know?
FAL = G1JP1985-
Here is another homework assignment for you; why did the (West) Germans call the FAL the G1 while the HK 91 was dubbed the G3?
May give you some more insight on your choices.
I better go back and study my history books. I musta missed that one.Not exactly true.
The G1 was the preferred rifle but the Belgiums wouldn't sell the license to manufacture to the West Germans (issues and hard feelings from the Nazi invasion and occupation) but would sell the rifle. The cost of the rifles is one the Germans did not want to pay so it was passed over.
