Developed by Dieudonne Saive (of FN High Power fame) after World War II, the Fusil Automatique Leger (Light Automatic Rifle) would find great popularity with NATO forces, earning the nickname "The Right Arm of the Free World".

The upper receiver bears the one line Herstal address, with no visible import markings. Fitted with a smooth plastic forearm and pistol grip, and a smooth hardwood buttstock.

Fine, with 85% of the original matte black finish, showing mild scuffing on the flash hider, charging handle and receiver, along with mild operating wear and handling marks.
