Brazilian Army 556 FAL’s

DOD put these images out and I thought they were interesting. Here we see members of the US 101st shooting some Brazilian Army 556 FAL rifles.

Notice the modern features.

We currently own a 556 chambered FAL and it is a hoot to shoot. What really makes the difference is the rifle was built from the ground up to be a 556 caliber weapon. So the entire system is just slightly smaller than it’s bigger 762 parent. In the hand it feels lively and svelte.

5.56 FAL’s a really great guns.

If you look objectively at these images, and drop the 762 biases, the modern features on these FAL’s rifles become apparent. It’s not a big leap to wonder if they would sell well in the United States?

Said it before and I will say it again, I fully expect one day that some maker / importer will offer a line of 556 chambered FAL’s. And if the current FAL fan base figures out how handy and fun they are to shoot, that company will make a proverbial mint.
