    I have always liked the FN-FAL in multiple configurations. TONS of parts available and battle tested for 50 years.

    Personally I owned a demilitarized selective-fire G-3 in 7.62 and greatly appreciated it rugged reliability and low-cleaning requirements as it has no gas cylinder.

    I was 14 years old in 1959 when I received my first deer rifle it was a 303 Enfield. It was a Christmas gift purchased for $14 at Leonard Brothers department store in Fort Worth Texas.
  • Man, to me hands down the FAL. Believe or not it qualified to become our fighting rifle but US Army leadership at the time said no.

    Man, I didn't know the 901 had ambi controls. As someone who shoots long guns lefty, that is something I really appreciate( and surprisingly hard to find in ARs.)

    I’m not looking for a new gun I’m worried about never getting ammunition again.

    The balanced weight of a bullpup while shouldered is pretty hard to beat

    I used the fn fal for 10 years as a regular army in a country far away that doesn’t exist anymore. It was an ideal weapon against 7.62*39
  • I am also a huge IWI fan, I have an Tavor X95, and the T7 is on my list...
    awesome choice Tim. 😈🤘🤘

    Just tried the Scar today..... Instantly fell in love with it.

    Enjoyed your program . First time I've seen you . My favorite rifles are my Remington 700 and the M14 I was issued in the Army .

    FAL - carried one for a decade. Would happily go to war with one, even if there are more modern things out there.

    Don't forget the 100-round beta mags that are double opposing drums. I, at one time, found an AR-10 that used a recoil system like that in the SCAR-17.

    I am new to tactical shooting, and love my POF Revolution in .308. Although a bit heavier than my Windham Arms .223/556, it shoots just as easy.

    I bought the Patriot Ordnance Factory gas piston. High quality, but the closer was the great factory support. I sent 1 gun in for an upgrade and they turned it around in one day… at no charge.

    Great video, thanks. Planning on my first 308 build for home defense, this clip was super helpful.
  • I think it's the muscle memory on the magazine swaps that keeps people away from this bullpup system. Swapping from front to back rattles people. Perhaps if your first rifle is a rear-fed bullpup then it won't matter. I run into this issue swapping from my rifle to my auto-shotgun, which is rear fed.

    For over 50 years I have depended on my HK and never regretted it. It simply doesn’t get any better.

    The only thing that is keeping me from buying a scar is the price. I can build a very nice ar10 and a whole armor setup for the price of a scar with irons on it. Another thing is how finicky the scar is you can't really change anything other than the rail on a scar without having to tune it. Even upgrading the plastic hinge to metal can affect how it runs
