Superb original Fabrique Nationale F.A.L. machine gun designated as "Light Automatic Rifle" (French: Fusil Automatique Léger), the FN-FAL has been marketed world-wide and was adopted by NATO forces in the cold war era with great satisfaction and success. All-original Fabrique Nationale manufactured guns are rather rare in the National Firearms Act registry as fully transferable guns. ATF Registration form shows, "FN (HERSTAL)" as the manufacturer. Right side of receiver marked with typical FN markings visible in the accompanying photos, and "F.A.L. cal. 7,62 A.N.C. 1964" followed by serial number. Includes two 20 round magazines. Serial numbers match between upper and lower assemblies. Accessories include one 20 round magazine. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent dark black enamel hardcoat finish and near excellent composite furnishings with the slightest of handling marks. By contrast the magazine has an extremely fine matte blue finish. Bore is near excellent, shiny and bright. Bolt is near excellent. Mechanics are crisp. This is a select fire machine gun. The FAL rifle saw widespread military use in over 90 countries for over three decades. It is a highly effective full-power .308 battle rifle and is a top quality rifle caliber machine gun of the highest order of reliability. It would make a fine addition to any machine gun collection. It would be pretty hard to upgrade the condition of this specimen which has everything going for it. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4 AS CURIO AND RELIC ELIGIBLE. CORRECTION: This weapon has been professionally refinished. The person who did this work stated that they did it part by part and documented the process in photos. It remains an extremely scarce example of its kind as a fully transferable machine gun.
