My father passed away and I got his FN FAL. I already have a .308 semi-auto battle rifle (HK-91) so which one should I keep? I really only want one .308 rifle.
Both weapons are as titled. I have a HK 91 and a FN FAL.Do you have a real HK-91 or one of those clones made by PTR or someone else?
Is the FAL original or one of those Hesse made monstrosities?
Obviously, if you have an original HK factory gun...THAT is the one to keep.
Either way...if both run 100% I would be tempted to hang on to both of them. After Hillary's win in 2016 (...you weren't lulled into believing that the left and the media were going to let the GOP win again..were you?) then you will probably be able to unload which ever one you wish and make tons more money.
Right now...all military styled rifles are at lows. I would not sell them now.
Wait and make more money in 2016 or after the next Sandy Hook like incident.
How do I find out?My sympathies to you and your family. Were I in your predicament, I'd keep both and set 1 up as a long range rifle, and the other as a tactical. I don't know much about the HK-91, but that L1A1/FAL is heavy! I'd set the L1A1 up as the long range rifle for that reason alone.
If you only keep one, if the HK is a genuine HK and not a clone, it's a no brainer, go with the HK. As for the FAL, is it metric or inch pattern? Metric pattern means cheaper mags, and it seems that inch pattern FAL's are slightly more collectable.
The easiest way to tell is the charging handle. If the handle folds flat against the receiver, it's more than likely inch pattern, though a few metric pattern rifles have been modified. I personally love FAL's. They're one of the toughest battle rifles ever made.How do I find out?
