FN FAL (Fusil Automatique Leger or SLR; Self-Loading Rifle)

Trooper with FN FAL.

7.62 FN FAL rifle.

This was the standard service rifle within the Rhodesian Security Forces.

Probably the most successful of the many designs produced by Fabrique Nationale. The FAL appeared in 1950 and continues to be used by many countries. 

This weapon is robust, reliable, and simple to maintain and operate, the FAL set a new standard when it appeared and it has continued to be a leading design for almost 30 years.

Round: 7.62

Length: 41.50"

Weight: 9 lbs 8oz (unloaded)

Magazine: 20rds

 

 

 

G3 (Gewehr 3)

7.62 H&K G3 assault rifle.

This weapon was in smaller quantities within the Scouts and Security Forces, and was used by many in lieu of the FAL.

The Heckler & Koch G3 is a most reliable and robust system. The rifle is made from sheet metal stampings with plastic furniture. The resulting weapon is not particularly pretty, but it is undeniably functional and effective.

The G3 has sold widely throughout the world and is the standard rifle of many armies.

Round: 7.62

Length: 40"

Weight: 9lbs 6oz

Magazine: 20rds
