The british version of the FN FAL as airsoft replica
Today British soldiers can only be seen with the bullpup assault rifle L85 in different versions. Before that the L1A1 served many years as a assault rifle. It was manufactured by several British companies (including Enfield).
Since it was already introduced in 1954, this results in an interesting detail. Because from 1956 to 1959 the FN FAL served with as the G1 in the german Bundeswehr. For 3 years German and British soldiers had in principle the same assault rifle.
But enough of the story. The L1A1 is also available as an Airsoft replica, manufactured by Ares Airsoft. And USAirsoft takes a closer look at this classic among the assault rifles.
