I am looking to buy a new 308 rifle. Which is a better all around weapon?

this one is easier than the m1a vs. fal. go for the fal (metric) - but a good one, don;t be tempted by these bargain basement $500 jobbies - there is one on an imbel reciever with the proper plastic handguard for around $800ish -that looks like a deal. steve

Again, easy one. FAL hands down. Cheap mags, cheap and plenty of parts. Paid $550 for mine, century gun on an Imbel reciever, put another two hundred dollars in it and now it's fine tuned and shoots great.

Levi2, get the AR-10.You won't be disappointed! Hey Big Guns,what kind of FAL is that? I like the wooden hand guard,not Israeli but what?

For some reason this did not post.Levi2 get the AR-10, it's a great rifle, very accurate. Big Guns,what kind of FAL is that,not Israeli but maybe Aussie?What ever the case it looks good,I like the wooden fore arm. I don't know much about FALs but I'm thinking of getting one just for the heck of it.

An ARS T48 Clone. I wanted a FAL, couldn't afford a pre-ban, and wanted as close to an American rifle as possible.

The barrel is only 18", and the real T-48 was the standard 21", but I liked the shorter barrel. It does look like a short barreld Izzy, though!

Get the FAL. MUCH easier to field strip, more ergonomic, usually a better trigger. Mags are cheaper too.

FAL, for all of the reasons stated above. It's a good weapon system.
