    Rhodesian and Israeli FAL

    I heard different things about why the carry handle was cut off. 1) It encourages carry in the not ready position. That can get you killed quick when ambushed. 2) It snagged the bush when in deep native country. Slowing you down and making noise. Also gets you killed.




    Always wanted a FAL with Rhodesian history. Pretty much canít get one now. Second was an Israeli FAL. Those rebuilds from parts kits , just hit the market. They are really expensive. Only a couple hundred available now, and that will be the last of them.

    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ó Samuel Adams

    Didn't Israel and South Africa cooperate on nukes before the end of Apartheid?

    SA leaked the existence of Israeli nukes.
