    It's time to settle it, folks - which 7.62 NATO floats your boat?

    I have a G3, M1A, two FAL's and an AR10.
    They all have their ups and downs.

    I fully disagree next to the AK the FAL was the used by the most countries. Your welcome to be wrong.

    Next to the AK... the Galil is an improved AK, so it counts... FAL... 2nd best.


    Yer welcome. ;):D

    The Tavor 7 (otherwise known as the .308 Tavor), but since it is not out yet I'll take the Keltec RFB. I freakin' love that gun, and it and the Tavor both ROCK! Bull pup's can do things that the more conventional rifles simply can't do as effectively. The short OAL does have a benefit. I can hold up the Tavor or the Keltec in one hand and fire it effectively, standing, with the stock in my shoulder. Try doing that with a conventional rifle!

    I got to get to work around here today after this. I still think the FAL is top dog but that's just my opinion and a few countries. Real AKs were never chambered in 7.62^51.like the FAL was.

    First would be the FAL.

    If I could more easily get parts/mags/etc., then it would be a Galil/Valmet, but almost none of the parts or mags for the Valmet/Galil in 7.62x51 are interchangeable with any other AK. If I were in S. Africa, Finland or other places where they are common then I would probably change my mind.

    Third would be the DT MDR - if it works out and if they ever release it. I would still keep something else around like the FN FAL.
