My FAL semi-automatic battle rifle as it hangs on the wall above my bed. The carry handle makes it easy to just hang it up there without needing a gun rack. The FN-FAL has been around since the 1950's and used throughout the world. My FAL uses an L1A1 barrel and gas system and an inch pattern receiver, typical to British commonwealth rifles. The lower receiver ( which is off a full-automatic G-1 ) and stocks are all metric pattern. The rifle fires the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge, feeding from a 20-round magazine.
