Video: I Have This Old Gun: L1A1 SLR (British FAL)

posted on February 19, 2019
The less recognizably named cousin of the FN FAL, the L1A1 SLR (or British FAL) equipped her majesty's troops from 1954 until its replacement by the Royal Ordinance L85 bullpup. Its major distinction from its Belgian-made relative was its semi-automatic-only nature, but short of this, the two rifles were virtually identical, differing only in the machinery on which they were manufactured. For more on this storied rifle, check out this "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
