    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.

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

    I'm really thinking of the Classic Wood CETME from Atlantic Firearms .

    SA leaked the existence of Israeli nukes.
