I like the the G3/CETME platform simply because you can homebuild it. It is fairly easy to build and accuracy is great. Recoil, a Mosin 44 has recoil, yah have been shooting AR's too damn much. I do love the FAL and even had a Imbel kit and a Century 80% receiver, but after much research on completing the 80% receiver I sold it. I will have me a FAL or 2 someday.
